Dr. Rae Lekness

Dr. Rae wants to be a partner in your health! She empowers patients through movement, education, and a variety of manual therapy techniques. Her goal is to improve her patients’ capability to manage their own well-being using her compassion, humour, and evidence-based practice. 

Dr. Rae’s journey to a career in manual therapy started early. She was a high-performance athlete from an early age and dealt with several injuries through her career. She was exposed to many different types of care that fostered a keen interest in how the body works. She was lucky enough to shadow a very talented Chiropractor during her time as an undergraduate. This showed her a way to combine her love of sport and activity with her interest in injury care and prevention. After completing her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology she pursued her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. 

She utilizes Active Release Techniques, Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, and diversified spinal mobilization and manipulation in conjunction with rehabilitation exercises and education. She enjoys working with a variety of patients, from this dealing with chronic pain to athletic injuries.

Growing up in Kananaskis Country she loved being outdoors, hiking, skiing, or just enjoying the Rocky Mountains with a good snack. In addition to her chiropractic practice Dr. Rae is also a high-performance water polo coach (and occasional player). She would love to see pictures of your pets and hear your music recommendations!
