Dr. Michael Caione

Chiropractor, Active Release & Graston Technique 

 

Dr. Caione combines his exercise rehabilitation and soft tissue background from Athletic Therapy with his Chiropractic background to provide his patients with the tools needed to help in the prevention and treatment of their injuries and provide a better quality of life. 

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. This led to having the opportunity to be part of the Canadian Medical Team at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Jackie is a Certified Athletic Therapist & Osteopathic Manual Therapist, having graduated from the Canadian School of Osteopathy, Manual Practice in Vancouver, BC in April 2018. 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! 


Although working with athletes is her passion, Jackie has a keen interest in working with pregnancy, babies and children.
