Dr. Michael Caione

Dr. Caione continues his love of work with athletes of all levels as the Director of Sports Therapy at a strength and conditioning gym in Calgary and has been a Chiropractor with the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sports Medicine Team since 2012. In 2017, Dr. Caione was the therapist with Team Koe at the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials where they won gold.

Jackie has worked with various populations including athletes of all levels in hockey, lacrosse, basketball, volleyball, football, wrestling, soccer, golf and dance.


Jackie has incorporated Osteopathic Manual Therapy techniques into her clinical practice over the last several years. Blending the two professions of Athletic Therapy and Osteopathy has allowed Jackie to provide her patients with a thorough assessment and treatment plan, which includes exercise therapy and active rehabilitation. As Osteopathy works to release the tensions which cause dysfunction, Jackie believes healing must continue through movement, exercise and bio-mechanical correction!
