Kavan Yu, BSc, DC

Born and raised in Victoria, Dr. Kavan Yu first went to a chiropractor at the age of seven for aches and pains related to growing. Constantly playing sports and being active, he found that his chiropractor consistently helped him alleviate and recover from injuries and pain in both an effective and efficient manner. After discovering that all the chiropractors he encountered seemed so passionate about their job, he quickly knew this was the career for him.

After high school, in preparation for his chiropractic training, Dr. Yu attended the University of Victoria, where he completed his Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology, which is the study of human movement. He subsequently attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto.
