We specialize in hands-on chiropractic adjustments and various soft tissue therapies, including ART and Graston technique. The spine isn’t our only area of focus … as the saying goes, the hip bone is connected to the knee bone and the knee bone is connected to the “foot bones” … and so on! We treat both acute injuries and chronic conditions, with the mainstay of our practice being preventative maintenance care for all ages.

FROM OUR PATIENTS ...

Real words from real people!
  • I saw Dr Scot for the first time a few weeks ago and he has already helped me quite a bit. I was afraid to have my neck adjusted after having a few bad experiences in the past. He told me what I needed to hear and adjusted everything for me and I've started to feel better already. I've never met a chiropractor that adjusted my ankles, hands fingers before and I love it. My neck and shoulders are finally starting to loosen up thanks to Dr Ladell.
  • Over the years Dr. Scot has saved my back and posture several times, keeps me functioning. Knowledgeable about causes and effects and best treatment. Does not up-sell treatment, straightforward and honest.
  • I've seen Ed a few times and he's gone out of his way from emergency relief to staying an extra hour after closing to help me. I travel to okotoks from calgary to see him and he's been treating my family for years, even way back with my grandparents! I recommend him to everyone even if its a small commute his service is great and he really knows his stuff.

MEET OUR FRONT STAFF

Kathy

Hi there, I’m Kathy. I am one of the regular receptionists at the clinic. I love interacting with patients and getting to know you better. I’m usually good with names, but never forget a face! My husband and I live on an acreage nearby. One of our greatest pleasures in life is seeing the world! And, of course, spending time with our children. I look forward to meeting you.

Ann

Hello, I am Ann. I also work weekdays at the clinic and enjoy seeing our many patients on a regular basis. I take a special interest in making sure you are comfortable. I also live in Okotoks with my family. My husband is a local pastor and we have three teenaged children.

Stefanie

I’m Stef! You will find me here mostly on Saturdays, as I am also a nursing student at MRU. I worked with Dr. Scot in Calgary many years ago, and am so pleased to be here in Okotoks working with him and the other practitioners. Saturdays are usually a really busy day, and I just love that! Let me know how I can help you when you’re here.

MEET THE PRACTITIONERS

Dr. Scot Ladell, Chiropractor

I am Dr. Scot. As a second generation chiropractor and athlete, it is obvious to me that what happens in one part of the body affects the whole system. That is how I approach you as a patient. I listen to what you say about your pain, health and lifestyle; I observe how you sit, stand, move and don’t move; I feel the tight spots and imbalances in your body, not just where you say you feel pain. I am a hands-on, manual adjuster; because of this, I easily adapt my treatment plan as needed, each time I see you. I’ve been accused of telling it like it is, even when you don’t want to hear it! Yes, that is true. You can expect me to be straight forward and direct.

I graduated from CMCC in Toronto summa cum laude in 1991. I returned to Calgary and practiced at Chinook Chiropractic Clinic for 24 years. I am very excited about being in Okotoks now, where life is a little slower and the parking is more accessible!

I currently live in the south end of Calgary where I enjoy life with my wife, Deena, and our young adult children. We love being outdoors, playing sports, gardening, cooking, building stuff, and appreciating plenty of fine wine. 

Dr. Shannon Winslade, Chiropractor

I’m Dr. Shannon. I enjoy continually expanding my knowledge, so participating in post graduate training is a big part of what I do. After graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic-West in 1998, I obtained my Master’s of Applied Science in Nutrition in 2005. I am certified in Active Release Techniques (Spine and Upper Body), Kinesiotaping, CHEK- practitioner level, and Myofacial Release level 1. Currently I am working towards my Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner designation.

I am an avid Ironman athlete, marathon runner and Crossfitter. I am involved with Natural High Fitness and Athletics as a coach with Computrainer and the triathlon group. Because of my own athletic pursuits, I have a strong interest in both the management and the prevention of sports injuries. I love living in Okotoks with my husband and two children.

Dr. Ed Sands, Chiropractor

I follow a fairly conservative philosophy of Chiropractic, focusing on assessment and treatment of spinal and extremity joint dysfunction. I have certification in Active Release Therapy for both the upper and lower extremities, as well as Kinesio Taping. I have had extensive involvement at the local, provincial and national levels, participating in and chairing numerous committees, including the Calgary Chiropractic Society, insurance committees and have functioned as a peer investigator.

Community involvement is very important to me and started with my move to Okotoks in 1985. I have been a part of the Lions Club, functioning as President for a term. As an appointee by the Town of Okotoks, I served on the High River and District Hospital Board for 7 years, including 3 as Chairman of the Board. I am also now serving in my 7th term on the Okotoks Town Council. I continue to live in Okotoks with my wife, Debbie.

Bronwynne Jack, RMT

Hi, I am Bronwynne! I’ve been a massage therapist for 15 years and am very excited to join the team in Okotoks! I have worked in south Calgary for many years and am happy to be adding my energy here.

My goal is to make every session as unique as you are when coming for a treatment. I want you to feel comfortable enough to ask questions and express your treatment needs. Let me know where you hurt, and if I massage too deep – let me know that as well.

I have a 2200 hour massage diploma, an advanced craniosacral therapy certificate, and a myofascial cupping certificate. I enjoy learning new techniques, so I take courses frequently. When time allows, I enjoy swimming, yoga, cooking and hanging out with friends.

 

Zeljko (Zeke) Bicak, RMT

As a massage therapist, I use a combination of techniques including accupressure, shiatsu, suicodo, fascial integration, sports injury techniquess, reflexology, pregnancy and infant techniques, craniosacral manipulation and ear candling. I received my Physical Therapy degree from the University of Belgrade, in the former Yugoslavia.

In Canada, I have completed the training for a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. I have also received my Registered Massage Therapist designation from Kakawa College in Toronto.
