Dr. Jerry Lam
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Lam utilizes manual and low force instrument-based chiropractic adjusting techniques because he believes everyone’s body is unique and there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to your body. Dr. Lam utilizes spinal traction and specific exercises alongside the adjustment to improve posture, abnormal spinal curvatures, reduce pain, enhance body function and overall health.
Dr. Lam’s first experience as a chiropractic patient followed a bout of sciatica that developed after years of wear and tear as an athlete in combat sports (Judo). At first, he thought it would go away after a couple of days on its own like it had many times before. He tried heat, ice, stretching and massage, however nothing he did helped reduce his pain and disability until he was referred to another Judo practitioner who was also a chiropractor.
After a series of chiropractic adjustments and rehabilitation, Dr. Lam finally got relief from chronic pain. He not only returned to sport but was able to perform at an even higher level. His personal experience as a chiropractic patient led him to become a Doctor of Chiropractic himself – so he can serve his community by delivering the same life-changing chiropractic care that he received.
Dr. Lam is one of the few chiropractors in Victoria who are fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English, and is also licensed to practice chiropractic in Hong Kong. He was born in Hong Kong and completed his Doctor of Chiropractic with Summa Cum Laude at Life Chiropractic College West in California, USA.
Dr. Lam’s recreational interests include Judo, fitness, table tennis and basketball. He was invited to train with the Hong Kong Judo Team when he was 16. In 2015, Dr. Lam achieved his black belt and coached for 3 years at the South China Athletic Association in Hong Kong. His hard work ethic in sports has now translated into working hard to provide excellent care to his new community. Dr. Lam has a strong passion for helping others and could not be more honoured to be working at Cedar Hill Sports Therapy Clinic and serving the Victoria community.
