Adelaide | Andrew Young, DC, RMT
A former provincial athlete and medalist in martial arts, Dr. Andrew was involved in sport at a young age. After his martial arts career, he switched gears and began to explore new challenges, participating in a wide variety of individual and team sports. He developed a strong interest and appreciation over the complexity of the human body and the amazing things we are all capable of doing with it. Now a weekend warrior and sports fanatic, you’ll likely find Dr. Andrew at his best friend Gym’s place, playing recreational sports, hiking and traveling the globe outside of the clinic!
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
Patient-centered care. My goals are your goals. There’s nothing more important to me than empowering my patients by helping them understand and take control of their situation and actively engage in their own health outcomes. After educating my patients on their injury/conditions, I always make an effort to empower them and teach self-management tools in combination with manual therapies to achieve their individual goals, manage their pain and improve their overall function. I strive to help my patients get back to doing the things they love to do!
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
I like to use a combination of treatment techniques including myofascial release therapy and deep tissue massage, chiropractic adjustments/joint mobilizations and exercise rehabilitation programs tailored to your individual goals to promote recovery and prevent future injury.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I don’t discriminate! I enjoy treating any muscle, tendon, ligament, bone/joint, or nerve-related condition/injury within the human body. Whether you’re a student, athlete, working in trades or at the office, retired or anything in between, I’m excited to work together and get you better!
