Mobility issues in my neck and shoulders had been bothering me for over six months, and I was beginning to notice an impact in my exercise routine and with recreational sports, specifically my golf game.

After trying RMT, Acupuncture, and Athletic Therapy, I was referred to Dr. Trester by my brilliant and athletically superior life partner. I know my posture and alignment are crucial to my golf success, and it seemed like a great idea to get to the root of the problem.

I've been seeing Dr Trester since the Fall of 2016, and have seen meaningful improvements in my mobility. Almost immediately I noticed that I was sleeping better and standing taller. Within a few short months of treatment, I can happily report that my handicap has dropped to a 6, and I am looking forward to a healthy golf season ahead.

Thanks Dr. Trester!

Thank you guys for choosing me as patient of the month. Please see my below story of my journey so far.

My name is Amy, I am 28 years old. I have had a long standing history of issues with my back, when I was 16 I was playing soccer and after an (AMAZING) tackle I ended up on the ground in pain unable to move. It has not stopped since that day. I have tried so many things to help relieve some pain. At the beginning, I was just going to my family doctor where at 16 I was prescribed extremely strong pain killers and Valium.... at 16!!! I soon decided that I did not want to continue down that path as I felt it was masking the pain rather than helping it. Since then I have tried many remedies such as Chinese medicine, massage therapy, physiotherapy and acupuncture all of which would ease the pain for a bit.

So there I am at a gluten free expo and I see Dr. Trester's stand. I had always been weary of Chiropractors just because I had an old school doctor who put some fear in me. I decided to go over and see what they had to say. After speaking to Dr. Trester for a few minutes he had pointed out a lot of my issues. I decided to book an appointment with the lovely Shalene right away. My first appointment was extremely pleasant and informative, not only is the office comfortable and welcoming but Shalene was great.

I was a bit nervous as I was not sure what to expect but Shalene walked me through everything and made me feel at ease. I met with Dr. Trester and he explained what we were going to be doing over the next few weeks. Since I have started adjustments I have seen and felt nothing but positive effects. I am only going to mention a few major differences as there is so many, I am experiencing less pain and tightness. I can actually feel my improved posture. I have more energy. I'm more active. I don't feel caged in because of my back pain!!

Being able to say YES to hikes and outings instead of "sorry guy's, my back can't deal". It's a whole new me, one who is looking forwards to spending this summer making up for lost time.

I have nothing but good words to say about every bit of my experience so far with Dr. Trester and team. I look forward in continuing my adjustments and further improving my life and body.

What brought me to Dr. Trester's office were 3 concussions on top of a decade of chronic back pain.

I experienced constant pressure in my head, little range of motion in my neck, sensitivity to noise, memory loss, chronic fatigue, exhaustion, and very little energy - among many other symptoms.

I tried this type chiropractic work based on a recommendation of my friend Michael Lutinsky. I had tried previous chiropractic treatment but did not get results I needed.

Michael explained to me that you use a different method than traditional chiropractors that's subtle and uses vibration to heal and open up the spine. This approach resonated with me so I decided to try something new.

What I most appreciated about coming to this office is that my treatment plan was clearly laid out: I was clearly explained with X-rays and lots of visuals the degree of my injuries, where they were and what it would take to achieve my health objectives. I also really appreciate that you have a passion about what you do a sincere commitment to helping people.

I experienced immediate results with Dr. Trester - decrease in pain, more spaciousness in my body, much larger range of motion in my neck, more energy, improvement of my sense of taste (important when you are in the food business like me!), no more sensitivity to sound, way less pounding in my head, no more regular 3 hour mid-day naps and needing 10 hours of sleep most nights - and most recently I've started to gradually become physically active again for the first time after almost 10 years.

I am starting to experience a much higher quality of life and have more energy for my business, friends & family and life in general.

Thank you so much for all your help!

Dr Trester helped me tremendously. His approach is totally non-invasive, to the point I didn't notice much difference at first- except I was VERY relaxed and sleepy for weeks ( a sign the body was recovering). then it hit me, when I started preparing for my last concert (I'm a professional opera singer): I always struggled with high notes due to constant tension in my neck and felt I had to work really hard all the time. I was diagnosed with scoliosis in my early childhood and accepted it would always be 'hard' for me. But, to my surprise- after only two months of treatments I can now sing with an ease I never knew before and have absolutely no fear weather I will 'hit that high note' anymore!! Thank you so much Dr Trester, I am recommending you to all my friends and colleagues, and everyone who wishes to give their bodies a break and a chance to heal at the deepest level.

Before I met Dr. Randall, I was frustrated and felt like I had ran out of options, often being told to just keep going for physiotherapy, but nothing seem to get better, years went by without results. I was in pain and constant discomfort on my whole left side of my body, my quality of life wasn't great; I suffered of sleepless nights and sweats not just from my subluxations, but also from hormonal changes , anxiety, IBS,I couldn't even exercise because it hurt.

When I met Dr. Randall he took some x-rays which showed my problem areas being on the neck and lower back, he suggested a routine of three visits per week; I started to feel the results as soon as one week into treatment, even my vision improved.

I am very thankful to Dr. Randal for having the right approach in treating the source of my problems and not just the symptoms, I feel like I am slowly getting my life back; now I am able to sleep better, my sweats have almost stop, I have a lot less pain and I can stand better, I feel more relax.

I am 67 years old and still working. I have had back pain for a long time but last summer it got so bad that I started to think about quitting my job.

One day I walked past Dr.Trester's office and decided to make an appointment in hope for help. I am visiting his office twice a week for treatments and in about two months I started to notice some improvements. No more shooting pains. I am enjoying life again and I have more energy. I even started to do what I couldn't do for such a long time. Dr. Trester's office is close to my house. His wife is a ray of sunshine. I don't' have to wait too long. I enjoy my visits. I share my positive experience with my friends and people in my building.

Amazing - attentive - effective! I started seeing Dr. Trester as a referral from a friend when I found out I was pregnant. I decided to check it out because I had heard about the benefits of chiropractic for pregnancy. When I first came into the clinic, I had mild sciatic pain but throughout the last 4 months I've had nothing but an amazing pregnancy. With his treatments, I've have had absolutely NO back or sciatic pain whatsoever, and have been able to 'avoid' pregnancy symptoms. I've been able to stay active (teaching multiple cardio dance fitness classes each week) as well as continue travelling and working with thousands of students in elementary and high schools across Canada. Even though I've been growing larger with the baby, I have found that my mobility and energy have increased. I strongly believe that this amazing pregnancy that I'm having can largely be attributed to the fact that I'm receiving prenatal chiropractic care. Every visit to their offices is so lovely - Shalene is a fantastic office manager who is incredibly helpful and accommodating with appointment bookings and insurance papers, and Dr. Trester's genuinely attentive nature is amazing. You can tell that the team at West 1st Chiro really cares for their patients and to help find solutions in guiding your body towards optimal health.

I started coming to Dr. Trester because, as per usual, I was curious about myself. As an actor I am consistently monitoring how myself, in terms of the physical and spiritual, orchestrates and operates on various different levels of our 3 dimensional world. Dr. Trester and Shalene introduced to me the world of Chiropractory and all its benefits and helped me to develop a better understanding of what happens to our bones over time with or with out the proper maintenance and guidance.

With my first adjustment in 2008 and having now 8 years of adjustments my understanding has allowed me to notice the affects this has had on me in various aspects of my life. At first I wanted to get in touch with just my spine but now I have more knowledge on its relationship with my nervous system and its connection with my body as a whole and can I truly physically feel my entire spine. On a more subtle level I notice improvement with my immune system and assistance in respiratory aid during allergy season; and, continued proper posture and alignment meant more confidence and self-esteem. Overall, my awareness, my physicality, allergy tolerance, and regular day-to-day enjoyment, has increased with regular adjustments.

As much as getting regular adjustments is important the ones doing the adjusting is certainly just as important to me, if not more. Getting to know Dr. Trester and Shalene over the years has instilled more confidence and belief that they are the right people to be helping me in this area of expertise. They are ambassadors of a healthy lifestyle and therefore their influence isn't easily lost. I aspire for great things and it all starts with a healthy body and a healthy mind. Thank You Dr. Trester and thank you Shalene for your continued love, support and encouragement over the years.

Blessings,

Thank you, Dr. Trester for taking the scoliosis wonkiness out of my spine! And the clicky-ness out of my neck! And the lopsided-ness out of my shoulders! You did it so quickly, so gently, so simply that it almost doesn't seem real, but it is. My posture is better, my sight is better, I have less headaches, I feel more confident. I'm just so happy about it all!

Can I tell you a secret? I've had this personal desire to build up my strength for decades. I would begin some kind of body-building regime with high hopes, but I would have to stop because something about my body structure would fail. And then I'd feel dispirited as I would look into the mirror seeing a overly-lean, hunching-over frame showing itself back to me-again. Now I'm able to do resume body building and everything feels good **for the first time**, like a well-balanced machine. No pops, clicks, off-kilter oddness. I have so much appreciation and gratitude for my wonderful body working and equal sentiments for you and Shalene!

P.S. I am also pleased that you've helped my friends with this visionary method you practice--it's a joy to see them literally come back to life!

My friend and I went to the VegExpo this past April 2016 to explore and learn new ways to live a more sustainable, healthy lifestyle and to support local and national businesses. We sampled new food and drinks, and met amazing people who promote health and wellness. Among those people, we met Dr. Trester and Shalene, and I am beyond blessed that we did!

Researched chiropractors in Vancouver and came across West 1st Chiropractic Wellness Centre and its many positive reviews. Dr. Trester thoroughly interviewed me and described the TRT method he uses to treat patients with subluxations. I was suffering from some low back pain, and sciatica. After the X-rays discovered a whole lot more Dr. Trester went to work on treating me. The pains, stiffness, and sciatica have disappeared. My mobility has increased. My energy levels have increased. The dark circles under my eyes are almost gone...I sleep far better than at any time in the past 10 years.

Recent blood tests were excellent but the big shock was that my blood pressure was 'Optimal'. The healthcare provider double checked and questioned me again, "Are you on any medication?" I certainly am not! Am looking forward to continuing treatment and the lifestyle changes!

I truly thank you Dr. Trester.

My friend and I went to the VegExpo this past April 2016 to explore and learn new ways to live a more sustainable, healthy lifestyle and to support local and national businesses. We sampled new food and drinks, and met amazing people who promote health and wellness. Among those people, we met Dr. Trester and Shalene, and I am beyond blessed that we did!

Prior to coming in for my official consultation, I didn't know too much about chiropractic care. I studied psychology and the sciences in my university years but it wasn't until the day of the expo where we had a brief overview of what it was, how it worked, and that it was a service that I had access to. Growing up, my health has always been a struggle. I've had way more blood (and other) tests, ultrasounds, and doctors/specialist appointments done than an average person gets in one year. It was to the point where getting checked constantly became my routine and yet nothing seemed to progress. I was always an active person (still am), seen multiple specialists, and did everything that I thought would help me feel better and be better yet nothing seemed to work. I was honestly just tired of being tired and didn't like the feeling of being forever "sick." It wasn't until the Fall of 2012 when my body gave up on me for the first time. I was rushed to the hospital and was told that I was over-exhausted/burnt out. To top it all off, my body lost 15 lbs in less than a week within that week. My migraines intensified, my digestion and absorption were severely impaired, and it was very challenging to function optimally on a daily basis especially with everything that I was involved in. After we met Dr. Trester and Shalene at the expo, we talked about the possibility of how THIS could be what I needed and what I was looking for.

Later that week, we had our official consultation and report. Dr Trester was thorough with his findings, made sure we understood what was happening, and answered any and all of our questions. It all made sense and definitely made me question why I haven't heard of chiropractic care sooner! Both Dr Trester and Shalene made us feel well-educated and prepared for our future appointments. At every appointment, I definitely felt valued and cared for by Shalene and Dr Trester. Since then, I've been going to my appointments regularly and have noticed a tremendous difference in my overall health. My migraines decreased significantly, my digestion and absorption increased, my body felt less tense, and my sleep quality was so much better. On top of my daily exercise, healthier eating habits and community involvement, chiropractic care was definitely a big contributor to me getting back on track and living my life to its fullest potential. I recommend chiropractic care to everyone and for everyone.

Thank you, Dr Trester and Shalene for being a part of my health journey!

The saying, "You will never know how bad you feel until you start feeling better" applies very well to chiropractic care. I met the Tresters at the Vancouver Health Show on Saturday, November 7, 2015. I had my initial consultation on Monday, November 9 and my first adjustment on Thursday, November 19 and began feeling better almost immediately.

Until that time, I had been living with various aches and pains that I had accepted as part of the aging process. Overshadowing them all was a constant very sharp pain in my upper right arm diagnosed by my MD as a rotator cuff injury. A few days after that initial adjustment, I realized the pain in my arm was barely noticeable.

Since then, other concerns some of which I mentioned in January have been corrected:
my posture and flexibility have improved
pain in both elbows, both wrists and the right side of my right hand is gone
pressure I used to feel on my windpipe when I would lie on my back is gone
abdominal breathing has become unrestricted
pain I had in the right side of my rib cage is gone
my legs, which previously felt like they were curved to my right, now feel straight

Right now, I'm most excited about my feet! Since I hired Dr. Trester, I have "fired" Dr. Scholl: his inserts have been removed from my shoes because I no longer get pain in my heels and arches. I'm also standing more squarely on my heels rather than on the sides. I know this because my old runners are worn down on the outside of the heels. Previously, when I would deliberately try to stand properly in those shoes, my feet would roll to the sides where the heels are worn down. They don't do that anymore. The wear pattern that's beginning to develop on my new runners confirms that.

The care I'm receiving from Dr. Trester is raising the quality of my life by relieving those pains which had nothing to do with aging and everything to do with a subluxated spine. The amazing thing, to me, is that he accomplished all of this without being told about any of it except that sore right arm. The funny thing is, I was so used to all of those other aches and pains, that even if he had asked me, I probably couldn't have told him about them. I'm excited to see what continued chiropractic can do because I am feeling better or, maybe, starting to.

I am a healthcare provider and very careful about who I entrust my own physical health to. Dr Trester has consistently lived up to and exceeded my expectations of what chiropractic care should be. I was in an mva July 2015 and subsequently was experiencing awful tension headaches almost daily. After three weeks of chiropractic I haven't had a tension headache since. Dr Trester is friendly and knowledgeable and his lovely wife Shalene organizes your schedule and billing so well that you don't worry about a thing. I highly recommend this office to many of my patients!

I have had recurring lower back and hip pain for several years. I have been xrayed, poked at and tied up like a pretzel in my attempts at finding a way to alleviate the pain. The pain progressed from recurring to constant and was affecting all aspects of my life. From not sleeping to not wanting to socialize, and everything in between. I could no longer raise my leg high enough to get into my car or walk up stairs.

I was an emotional wreck. I could not live with myself. I am so grateful to my family and friends for putting up with such a CRAB! I was complaining, yet again, to a very patient friend and he told me of his success with Dr. Trester treating his troubling migraines. He was so pleased with his results, he wanted me to enjoy those same successes. Truly a good friend :)

From the minute I set foot in the office I knew I would get results. Greeted by one of the sweetest people on earth, I immediately felt at ease. Shalene has a special way of making you feel welcome.

Throughout the consultation and ensuing appointments, Dr Trester proved to be professional, informative, positive, warm and above all, present. Never making you feel he is rushed to get to the next patient.

The healing process encompasses not just the physical treatment but also an emotional and environmental awareness. Dr. Trester and Shalene's practice certainly accommodates those needs, making your treatment a whole experience. I felt improvement from the very first treatment. After 5 or 6 visits I was sleeping through the night and my level of pain went from constant to sporadic. I am 9 visits in and I am 95% pain free and there's no looking back. My husband says how good it is to see me smile again.

Now I tell anyone and everyone who will listen: Chiropractic works!

I am a tennis pro and have had hip problems for a few years now. I put off seeing a chiropractor for one reason or another. I'm so glad I found Dr. Randall's office. They are so professional and informative. Growing up I had my hips adjusted a few times, but I didn't realize how important the whole spine is and how your nervous system and posture could be effected. I am so happy to be correcting all of these problems now and looking forward to great posture and a healthy spine. Health is so important and making sure you take care of your body!

Very impressed with the care that I am receiving at this office!

I have been seeing a chiropractor for the last couple of years and came under Dr Trester's care & guidance back in September 2015. While his method was different from my prior caregiver, I found similar relief from my ongoing concerns. I decided to try chiropractic because I have always been a firm believer in working to heal yourself and that attitude married perfectly with chiropractic care. I should say guidance because I firmly believe that unlike regular medical care I've had in the past the power to heal rests primarily in my hands. With the guidance of a good chiropractor such as Dr Trester, I get the training and understanding of how my body works best (i.e. with a clear channel for my central nervous system). I have found the energy and enthusiasm of both Shalene and Randall to be refreshing and revitalizing. A bad day almost ALWAYS turns into a good one when I walk out of the office.

Thanks for all you do!

I first met the Tresters at the Vancouver Health Show in November 2014. I had a recurring pain in my right arm but it wasn't bothering me at the time. We briefly discussed the idea of chiropractic for general health but I declined the invitation for a consultation.

One year later, that pain in my right arm had become a constant problem and I'm right-handed. It even hurt to brush my teeth! I was back at the Vancouver Health Show in November 2015 and so were they. After Dr. Trester examined my spine, he again recommended a consultation. This time, I was motivated by my pain to make the appointment.

The consultation included x-rays which revealed the extent to which my spine was out of alignment. I was shocked and amazed that, given the condition of my spine, I didn't have more problems. In reality, I couldn't know that I didn't. The brain controls every function of the body through the nervous system. Misaligned vertebrae (known as "subluxations") can put pressure on nerves which may distort or block signals from the brain, limiting body function. Most nerves have no pain fibres so waiting for pain to get checked wasn't a good idea.

After the very first adjustment, the pain in my arm decreased dramatically and went back to being only an occasional annoyance. As we got to the end of the first 12 adjustments, I began to notice other benefits I hadn't even considered. Deep breathing became easier. Pain in my wrists, which I thought was from years of data entry, decreased. And my legs felt straight when I would lie on my back. Up until this point, they felt like they were curved to my right. I'm excited to see what the next 12 adjustments will bring!

Worried about cost? Don't be. You're going to spend your money anyway. Spend it on something that will make you feel good now and even better in the future.

How long will it take? This isn't a quick-fix. It took time for your spine to get into its current condition; it will take time to correct the problems. It's your body; you have to live with it. You decide when is enough.

Does it hurt? Not at all. If he was hurting me, I wouldn't go. It's very relaxing. I usually need a nap after my appointment.

I would recommend West 1st Chiropractic Wellness Centre to anyone. On 1st Avenue near Burrard, it's easy to get to from bus routes along Cornwall, 4th Avenue and, if you don't mind a little exercise, Broadway. There's limited parking out back but plenty of street parking.

Dr. Trester's education, training and experience enable him to work quickly and efficiently, but he'll never make you feel rushed. He knows what he's doing and he does it well. Shalene is his right arm in the office, keeping everything and everybody organized and flowing smoothly. No doubt she does far more than I know and he refers to her as his "team" with good reason. Go see Dr. Trester. You'll be glad you did. I know I am.

From the very beginning to present day, I have felt nothing but sincere goodness from Dr.Trester and his lovely wife Shalene which is why I decided to commit myself to yet another healing journey with them. I have recently overcome serious health issues yet felt like there could be more improvements. I found Dr.Trester through a gentleman whom I recently met at a health shop. Why I first consulted with him in regards to a reputable chiropractor is beyond me but I'm truly glad I did as the adjustments have been dramatically life changing. This is not a snap, crackle, pop and go establishment which is what surprised me as that's what I thought of most chiropractic clinics. I figured I would give it a shot and if I didn't like it, I have all the right to decline. From day one, every reasoning and step of their protocol was explained in full detail. To customize a unique personal plan, naturally requires diagnostics, in this case: physical examination and digital radiology, which they have on site. After the initial consultation, I returned to the clinic with confidence knowing that Dr.Trester had time to properly review my diagnostic findings to customize a treatment plan. With that thought in mind, he revealed issues that I had never even known about and shed light on all the nagging problems that I couldn't figure out but wanted to solve. The informational folder that you are sent home with also goes into further detail and any questions you have will always be properly answered. I left the clinic that day satisfied knowing their philosophy is not to treat symptoms time and time again but to eliminate the root causes that so that you can be free to live optimally. It has only been over a month since I have been receiving my adjustments yet I have experienced dramatic internal and external changes. As great as Dr.Trester and Shalene are, you must also play an active role in supporting your body by using the darn pillow LoL, adjusting your attitude, diet and daily habits during the healing process and for good to maintain a happy, healthy life. I'm truly appreciative of these two great souls and I'm looking forward to my next date with the Integrator.

When I visit Dr. Trester's office every week I am always greeted with a warm welcome. I feel safe in the hands of someone who genuinely cares about and enjoys helping people.

When I first went to see Dr. Trester for back pain, I thought I could go in once, have an adjustment and be on my way. I learned that our bodies need time to adjust and what chiropractic care is all about. It is not just about fixing back pain. Chiropractic is about your overall health.

Dr. Trester and Shalene have created an inviting and comfortable environment where I feel motivated to stay on a path of continued health and well being.

After moving from Winnipeg in 2009 I was looking for a chiropractor. Soon after I met Dr. Trester at a Wellness Trade show. Growing up we attended the chiropractor as a family in Winnipeg, so it was something I was already very comfortable with.

I continued to see Dr. Trester throughout my pregnancy and experienced no physical pains that most woman suffer from - back, hip and sciatic issues. I also had a smooth and relatively speedy delivery, which I would definitely credit to my body being in a healthy position from my chiropractic care. During my pregnancy Dr. Trester and I discussed the many benefits of children, infants in particular, being adjusted. We also spoke of the pressure and force placed on babies during the birthing process. I learned a lot and continue to pass on my new found knowledge to my expecting friends. At 5 weeks old both baby and myself were ready to get out of the house for an adjustment. My husband had also decided to start treatment at this time.

My husband had never seen a chiropractor before and didn't really know much about it. But working in a physically demanding job left him sore more often then not. And with our son being born he wanted to be in a healthier state to fully be able to enjoy his time with us. Since January he has seen great improvements in his overall health. He no longer wakes up stiff and finds he has more energy.

We consider ourselves so lucky to have met Dr. Trester and Shalene. Their commitment to others health and wellness is admirable.

The reason I first started working with Dr Trester was because I immediately noticed a distinction in his practice in the time he took with me, and the care he took with my back issues. I love that he is constantly working on growing himself, taking workshops etc to expand his knowledge in this area and to be a better practitioner. He has a deep understanding of the body and is able to explain that complex system in layman's terms.

Also- We travel a lot, and the first thing I do when I land is to go see him for an adjustment.

I trust him with my health- and that family- including my 1 year old! I highly recommend him to anyone who is ready for a serious adjustment :)

I have had trouble with my hips for my whole life. Dr. Trester was very accommodating and helpful. After a few sessions my hips have been way better!! This is a friendly and positive office. I highly recommend them.

For over a year I had been experiencing lower back pain and neck discomfort regularly. It started out as a problem while playing sports or working as a server, but turned into something I experienced during simple daily tasks, like leaning over the bathroom sink. The last straw for me was my latest backpacking trip where I found myself often in pain just having a light pack on my back while I walked.

I thought to myself - I'm an active 22 year-old! I do not want this to be a constant part of my life! When I decided to do something about it and started seeing Dr Trester, I quickly felt an improvement. Even easier to see was the difference in my posture - on my first appointment, Dr Trester pointed out how my shoulders actually sloped to the right, something I hadn't noticed before but was then very obvious, and was clearly having negative consequences in various areas of my body.

Within a few weeks of adjustments, I started to feel so much better, and I could notice very real changes, such as not feeling the the "need" to crack my neck all the time, and my posture had improved a lot. Not only does Dr Trester use his skills as a chiropractor to improve health and quality of life, I've felt very included in the process all along the way, as he educated me about the changes that are happening and how everything should function ideally. Their office has such a great feeling to it, both Dr. Trester and Shalene are very kind and helpful and make the whole experience so pleasant. Overall I feel much more capable and ready to be active. Plus, I'm no longer worried that something as simple as brushing my teeth will result in back pain!

Thank you Dr. Trester & Shalene!

Just over a month before my 40th birthday, I woke up not being able to turn my head to the left, at all. The pain was excruciating, the tears burst forth, and I knew that I was not going to be able to get into a GP for a referral for physio expediently, yet I needed relief ASAP, and I didn't know where to go for help.

After checking with my health insurance, I found that I didn't need a referral for chiropractic care, so I asked the Google Gods for someone in town that was relatively close to my home, which came with excellent reviews.

I had never been to a chiropractor before, so I will admit that I was skeptical and a little scared, but after reading numerous positive reviews about Dr. Trester and his lovely wife Shalene the wellness philosophy of his practice and the excellent patient care, I gave them a call.

Luckily I was able to get in for a consult the same day and was able to be taken in for my first session the next day. I was thoroughly impressed with being x-rayed right away, and a having a wellness plan drawn up and presented at my next appointment.

Being a little scared about the thought of intense manipulation and bones popping and cracking, I was intrigued with the Torque Release Technique (TRT) and was impressed with how gentle the adjustments were, yet amazed with how quickly I was able to feel positive results and regained movement in my neck so quickly. Yep, I became an immediate convert to chiro!!

Dr. Trester and Shalene are super friendly, professional, accommodating to your needs, are generous in sharing the opportunity for care to family and friends, and are a pleasure to see each and every time.

I highly recommend their practice, and really enjoy the holistic approach to health care through gentle exercise, increased water intake, and will definitely be continuing to incorporate chiropractic care as part of my long-term wellness plan.

Moving to Vancouver, I was sad to leave my former chiropractor in Winnipeg.

I'd developed a good relationship with him and his staff, and I felt like I was at home when I visited the office. He referred me to Dr. Trester and I instantly felt the same way here! I'm a student, and a server so my schedule is forever changing. Shalene always seems to accommodate me (and with a positive demeanor at that.) I always feel better after leaving the office, and my last x-ray showed results even I didn't expect!

Dr. Trester has not only helped me by adjusting my spine, but also showing me ways to help myself with stretching and lifestyle tips. Chiropractic has helped me with neck pain, fatigue and has thought me to be more aware of my posture and my body in general.

I would recommend (and have recommended) Dr. Trester and Shalene's office to anyone who's looking to improve their state of health!

I started seeing Dr. Trester around 31 weeks of pregnancy because of some sever pain I was having in my hip and down my leg, the pain was relieved within about 4-5 visits (however I kept going). Not only that but he was able to provide useful and relevant information in regards to my pregnancy.

The office had a really inviting and caring environment topped with their specialty tables that allow me to lay on my stomach in comfort while Dr. Trester does my adjustments. Defiantly recommended!

I met Dr. Trester and Shalene at a Wellness show at the beginning of November. I was wandering around and was drawn by Shalene's warmth and friendliness. Dr. Trester did a quick spinal check, asked me to describe my issue(s) and said he could help me get on the road to recovery and wellness. I went in the next week and he did some mobility type tests and a set of Digital x-rays. We started a care plan the next day.

I have been going for about 8 weeks now. The first thing I noticed was my ability to breathe deeply. I don't remember the last time I could do this easily. My pelvis was tipped and has been most of my life. It caused my left foot to turn out at about 30 degrees when I stood and when I walked. It also rolled my foot to the outside; putting a lot of pressure on it so for the last 25 years I have had corns between my baby toe and the one next, causing me mild to severe foot pain on a daily basis. I noticed 3 weeks ago my foot pain was gone and that my feet are now parallel when I walk and stand. I also needed to turn my whole upper body when I looked left as I had severely restricted movement in my neck. I am so close to doing shoulder checking without moving my whole body, it's pretty exciting.

I am grateful for the care and consideration I have received from Dr Trester and Shalene. Their office is welcoming and I have had some great laughs with others in the waiting area. I can't recommend this office highly enough.

I first came to Dr. Trester after walking by their sandwich board sign promising that I would feel "Oh, so gooood" if I came in for treatment. My boyfriend had been noticing my posture sloped to one side so I decided to go ahead with a consultation. It turns out past minor sports injuries and falls had led to my spine tilting to one side. I decided to go ahead with a treatment program and within two days I was sleeping better at night and people were noticing my posture had improved. What I like about Dr. Trester is his focus on full-body wellness. He has been a great coach in introducing healthy changes to my lifestyle which has significantly improved my mental wellness along with the physical transformation. The office is warm & friendly and Shalene is very accommodating to busy schedules when booking appointments.

I met Dr. Trester and his lovely wife Shalene at The Wellness Show this year and was really impressed. During our 5 minutes together I learned that I carry an extra 10 pounds of weight on my left foot, and he picked out the 3 most sensitive disks on my back with no direction or guidance from me. Fast forward 12 sessions and I'm still impressed. On my first questionnaire he asked me all these questions about how I felt emotionally with life, health, relationships and job something I had never been asked by a Chiro before. He also said that it's really important to encourage faster healing to bring in a loved one when reviewing your x-rays. I was a little skeptical at first because he was using this gentle method called Torque Release technique and I was used to getting the much more aggressive snap, crackle and pop. But to my surprise about 6 sessions in I noticed the biggest change. For about 6 years whenever I would read in bed or have my hands inline or slightly above my head, they would go numb. Approx. every 5 minutes I would have to put one or both of my hands down to allow the blood to flow back in. Not Anymore!! This is something I had always just accepted but now I'm very excited to see what other things I have accepted that will start to change within the coming months. Highly recommend this amazing family practice for everyone. It's not only for those who are older or injured, it's about maintenance. Just like eating healthy it's something that's good for the body and should be added to your regular routine.

I was only thirty years old, but some mornings it felt like my spine had age 70 years overnight getting out of bed became a task with deliberately slow, small movements in an attempt to avoid the sudden shocks of pain that came with any bending of my not-quite-awake back. For several years I'd been experiencing on-and-off stiffness and often sharp pain in my lower back and hip joints. My brother had already been diagnosed with Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), a type of inflammatory arthritis, and I suspected that my pain was due to the same thing. The only thing I'd found to ease the pain was over-the-counter medicine, and hot or cold packs; I was ready to try something that offered longer-lasting relief, and might also help slow down the fusion of my vertebrae! As luck would have it, I came across Dr. Trester and his lovely wife, Shalene, during the Khatasalano Block Party last summer. I was impressed with Dr. Trester's ability to pinpoint several tender spots (I now know they are called "subluxations") along my spine with just a few quick touches. I signed up for a consultation, and am so happy I did. Dr. Trester helped me to understand my personal condition and how to manage it, as well as how chiropractic benefits my well-being as a whole. Since receiving regular adjustments, I have experienced reduced stiffness and pain in my back and hips; increased mobility in my neck, back, and hips; much better quality of sleep and a greater sense of awareness and control over my health, and the condition of my spine. I'm so grateful for Dr. Trester's treatment I'm back to feeling like my actual age when I get out of bed in the morning! And Shalene is just the most positive, enthusiastic, and accommodating person I've ever met! They make such a great team, and I would recommend West 1st Chiropractic Wellness Centre to anyone in a heartbeat!

If you are suffering from any pain of any kind...see a Chiropractor. But not just any Chiropractor, one should see Dr. Trester, he is passionate about chiropractic care and it really shows in what he does.

We love going to see Dr. Trester and Shalene! Its always fun to talk to them and tell each other stories. Dr. Trester is a great chiropractor who shows so much care and educate all his patients. My six year son knows what subluxation is. They treat us like family. We are like family :) thank you for all the laughs, giggles, jokes and some serious adjustments! <3

Short of magically recreating a young flexible healthy spine with no subluxations, Dr. Trester has helped me move through hip and knee discomfort and other aches encountered while working out at the gym (cardio and weights) these past 8 months.

Unlike previous chiropractic experience with sudden movements and sharp adjustments, the treatments are gentle and effective.

I often felt more traumatized than healed before meeting Dr. Randall and shied away from chiropractic.

His overall view of health jives with mine and I feel supported and reinforced by his knowledge in what I know to be good practices for healthy living.

Shalene is an angel of inspiration and good cheer, genuine, helpful and constant. It's a pleasure to receive expert treatment for body and spirit at Chiropractic Wellness.

I'm still going...

Do you have a strong support system? I do thanks to Dr Trester. My spine was letting me down but with quality care and adjustments that I am getting from Dr Trester my back is being trained to support me. I am very thankful for the amazing treatment and care that I am getting. I thank you and my spine thanks you.

Because of a blinding pain in my back I went looking for a good Chiropractor to "make the pain go away". After a trusted recommendation from a friend, I quickly called and booked for a generously priced consultation. Not having any previous chiropractic experience, I was very curious but also a bit skeptical. The Tresters were very "approachable" and made sure I was well informed and well evaluated before starting any adjustments. I very much appreciate the holistic approach that Dr. Trester takes with his practice; beyond just "make the pain go away." And also their delightfully flexible calendar that always caters to my busy schedule. Thanks guys!

I'm big on health, mobility and cutting edge strategies to staying mentally sharp and always looking to improve my approaches.

Nearly two years ago I started seeing a chiropractor, unlike any chiro work I’d had before, I see mine for no particular or acute reason. Rather, I visit weekly for a ten to fifteen minute appointment and an adjustment by 'torque release technique' an altogether different approach that the common 'crunch' we associate with chiropractic, (it's gentle).

This kind of chiropractic is about maintenance, just as my diet and exercise is aimed at improving my quality of life, I understand that my spine and my nervous system play a critical roll in my well-being. Furthermore, I understand that sitting and hammering away on this computer is a far cry from the lifestyle of the robust and physical lives of our ancestors.

This week West 1st Chiropractic Wellness Centre is celebrating their ten year anniversary.

It's a small shop, on the back end run by Dr. Randall D Trester (he's a cross-fit / obstacle race fan and his lovely wife Shalene who's a real bright part of my day, takes care of the admin side of things.

They're cool, they even went to the Jay Z and J.T. concert. Oh and they recently were voted 2nd best chiro in the city by the Georgia Straight.

Anyways, if you have a benefit plan, and are not making use of it, Chiropractic care is badass. It's about maintenance and staving off the degenerative effects of modern life.

If you don't have a benefit plan - yes, it's an expense but just like the organic foods and supplements, it's one that I justify by feeling awesome most of the time.

Approximately 8 months ago, I began experiencing all sorts of sensations, discomfort, and pain throughout my body. Initially it began with pain in one of my breasts, then tingling and numbing sensations in my upper mid back and up thru my neck & face. Over the course of the first few months, my symptoms progressed to burning pain between my shoulder blades, as well as the top of my head, blurry vision, and a numb hand & foot. For someone who has never experienced any sort of of health issues, this was quite unnerving.

This resulted in many visits to the local walk in clinic, and to my medical doctor as well. I went for a CT scan and Mamo on my breast, had a full work up of my blood twice, and a chest x-ray to check for any type of infection. It was eventually determined that I most likely had suffered a case of Shingles without the tell true sign of the crazy rash. All of this of course brought on much anxiety and worry. I was given nerve pain medication and told to go for Massage Therapy to help with the tension and stress. The R.M.T I had for my massage, suggested that I maybe never had Shingles and that a Chiropractor might be the answer. My closest friend had mentioned numerous times that I should try Chiropractic, however I only thought you went there for major back/neck issues, not for the ever changing range of symptoms that I had!

I had never been to a Chiropractor before, so I asked my "pro - chiro" friend who lives in Victoria, if her guy had a recommendation for someone in Vancouver. This is how I came to meet Dr. Trester. The very first day, I walked in, still not sure if this was going to be able to help me or not. After my initial consultation and x-rays, Dr. T revealed that I was in Phase 2 spinal decay, and had rated me a 7 out of 10 on severity! WHAT? How could this happen without me knowing? He explained in detail how this happens over the course of many years, how our nervous system is connected to our vital organs, and that any form of a subluxation in our spine could cause all sorts of havoc in the body. He felt 99% sure that these subluxations were the cause of all my grief. He told me that I had to be patient, as he would not be able to fix me immediately, each adjustment would build upon the last. Still overwhelmed by what I had been told, I walked out into the waiting area to read the "Daily Inspiration" quote. The quote rang so true for me that day in another area of my life, that I had Shalene photocopy it for me! As I left, I had this feeling come over me that I was exactly where I was supposed to be, in Dr. T's office for more than one reason!

Over the course of the next 5 months, I started with 3 visits a week to get me on my way to a healthy spine. I must say that I still wasn't convinced entirely, but with Dr. T's constant reminder to be patient and to stick with it, I began to feel some relief. Some days are definitely harder than others to keep that positive mind set, but that's what you get when you walk into Dr. T's office, a booster shot of positive energy! Whether it's Shalene greeting you with a genuine "How are you today?" and efficiently taking care of all your appointments & admin, the healthy living messages thoughtfully posted in the treatment rooms, to your spinal alignments and words of encouragement from Dr. T.

I'm proud and grateful today, to say that I'm down to a once a week visit and continue to see progress in my overall well being. I would highly recommend Chiropractic treatment and Dr. Trester to any of my friends and family. My sincere thanks to Dr. Trester and Shalene!

It was April 2012 when I started to take Chiropractic seriously; I was a 17 year old bent on the idea that I could do it all on my own. That month, training for the Ride to Conquer Cancer, I wound up finding myself getting hit by a car. This left me with all sorts of issues including a completely misalligned pelvis, and an issue with my left rotator cuff. I tried to do everything on my own: stretching and Icing my wounds as if my body needed no assistance. Although I started to find my joint becoming less and less mobile, and flexibility highly decreased. In short I found myself needing help!

My Mother, a Chiropractic Assistant, recommended I try Chiropractic. I wound up first trying Chiropractic In Maple Ridge where I had lived, with Dr. Matt and Crystal at Maple Meadows Chiropractic. I discovered, with the amount of immobility I was currently having, It was comparable to a 45 year old man!

Having to move for school, I wound up being connected with Dr. Trester here in Vancouver. We designed a road to recovery for me this year. Through multiple adjustments, I found myself making all sorts of achievements to where I could touch my toes again, or rotate my arm without it hurting!

Although these fixing these ailments were not the only things I started to notice after working with Dr. Trester. I noticed that my immune system would recover faster after being adjusted, and It was becoming less and less often I would contract Heart Burn. Being a full time student, Dr. Trester really aided me in recovering from my day to day life of sitting and studying, which can take its toll on a waivering posture.

Working with Chiropractic has really revitalized my health and allowed me to really explore other Ideas of health and wellness. I've even started to adopt the idea of eating Vegan! Thanks to Dr. Trester and Shallene I am not only healthier in terms of my spine, but also healthier in terms of what I consume as well. Which I feel radiates into everything we do, because food is the fuel to our bodies and minds!

Thank you again Dr. Trester and Shallene!

I came to Dr. Trester’s office about 6 months ago at the recommendation of one of my colleagues.

At the beginning I was reluctant to make an appointment with Dr. T. thinking how on earth cracking a few bones would make a difference. I was cracking my own bones anyhow with a small relief(obviously not a good idea).

I had constant neck pain, and neck stiffness was my best friend, especially in the morning. My right hip hurt after hiking 10km or so. Oh yes! I love all sorts of sports, especially hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, running, tennis. It became harder and harder to run or hike for long distances to the point that last year I was in constant neck pain and my hip was bothering me quite often, even when walking, to the point where one of my legs went limp almost daily. I was thinking that all this pain will eventually go away if I exercise more and that it is bound to hurt here and there because of the type of work I do (sitting at a desk all day long) and the vigorous exercising after a day of sitting.

I’ve started yoga last year and it provided some relief to my neck and back but the next morning I was as stiff and in pain as ever.

Bottom line, I was hurting and my health was gradually deteriorating and I was steeling my self to take this for the rest of my life.

Thanks to Dr. T. and Shalene’s professionalism and kindness I’ve come to trust them enough to get the X-Rays of my back done. Once the results came in it all became clear. My neck was in phase 2 of spinal degeneration and my lower back in phase 1 towards 2, and one of my thoracic vertebrae was going for a walk. HUH! No wonder I was in pain. Dr. T. patiently explained that these spinal dislocations/subluxations will not go away with 2 cracks and he explained what treatment would be beneficial and why. I really liked Dr. T’s holistic approach to my condition and, (still reluctantly) I agreed to his proposed treatment. The rest is history.

I am now almost pain free, except when I push myself while running. My everyday performance has improved and running, hiking etc. are much easier. I can actually turn my neck without pain, and most days I do not feel the strain on my back from too much sitting. In the morning I can actually get out of bed without hurting. This is not short of a miracle. I am now a believer. Chiropractic definitely enhanced the quality of my life and Dr. T. was definitely the answer to my spinal and other related problems.

THANK YOU, Dr. Trester for all your work, patience, and guidance. THANK YOU, Shalene for making the waiting time easy and for always accommodating my busy schedule.

I have been going to see Dr. Trester for about 6 months now and have noticed a positive change in my posture and overall health. Dr. Trester never hesitates to take the time to explain things to me when I have questions or concerns. I was always hesitant to see a Chiropractor, but I am now comfortable and trusting in Dr. Trester's work. Shalene also makes the environment very fun, as she's lovely to talk to!

For years I have been suffering from severe low-back pain and bad posture. About five months ago I decided to give Chiropractic a chance. Dr. Trester is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He and his wife Shalene make a fantastic team and their clinic is indeed one of a kind. Over the last few months I learned that Chiropractic goes far beyond back pain. Dr. Trester will help you improve your overall wellness and set you to a long-term path of healthiness. I strongly recommend West 1st Chiropractic Wellness Center to anybody.

For years, I’ve suffered with my neck pains, TMJ and migraines.  Advil gel caps were just a part of my daily supplements.  Then I met Dr. Trester who introduced me and my two teenage sons to his chiropractic wellness program.  We've been in his care for over a year now - I can't even recall when was the last time I had to use my night guard and take an Advil.

My oldest son's posture is way better no longer slouching and holding his 6'2" height quite tall.  The other son's general sinus and congestion problems have also been subdued.  It is genuinely a joy to visit the office, especially for my one son - who hates any types of medical visits - actually makes no fuss and has the trust to allow Dr. Trester do the biweekly adjustments speak volumes!!

Also both Dr. Trester and his wife Shalene are so extremely professional and passionate in sharing their knowledge of general health & wellness and making us feel at ease and comfortable in their family friendly environment.  I feel so grateful for the excellent care and support that our family receives every time we visit.

Thank you Dr. Trester and Shalene! I would highly recommend others to share this experience.

I began seeing Dr. Trester when I was 5 months pregnant – I was experiencing some increased back pain and wanted to resolve it as best as I could before delivery.  It was the first time I had visited a chiropractor after a negative experience 10 years prior.  Determined, I headed to my first appointment with a bit of trepidation, but I was hopeful as I had read, and heard, how beneficial chiropractic could be during pregnancy.

Fast forward a year, and not only am I going for regular weekly adjustments, but both my husband and son, who had his first adjustment at 12 days old, go as well.  My husband and I have really felt the benefits of regular adjustments, and we are sure our son has had a better chance at optimal health because of his bi-weekly adjustments.

Like any health professional, choosing a chiropractor is a very personal and important decision.  What brought me to Dr. Trester was a pamphlet at my midwives’ office.  What made my family stay with Dr. Trester was:

  • His overwhelming concern for, and commitment to, your health – body, mind, soul
  • The friendliness, warmth, and family-oriented atmosphere of the office
  • His belief that health is multi-faceted
  • His general knowledge about health and wellbeing, and the information he imparts to encourage optimal wellness
  • His dedication to making sure his clients are taken care of, especially in acute-pain situations
  • His scientific and holistic approach to chiropractic
  • Obvious and effective results
  • And last but not least, Shalene!

Chiropractic has been a health and perspective- changing experience for us, and we cannot imagine going forward in health without its positive impact.  Thank you Dr. T and Shalene – we are extremely grateful!

skeptical: doubting: marked by or given to doubt; "a skeptical attitude"; "a skeptical listener"

It’s safe to say that was me 10 months ago when I first went to see Dr. Trester. I had friends who had gone to chiropractors for years and felt it worked for them, but I didn’t understand why you had to keep going to see them forever in order to feel better. Doctors give prescriptions and you get better – why weren’t chiropractors able to do the same? It didn’t make sense.

Then one day my middle finger started to go numb. Weird. Then some of my other fingers. Hmmm. Then up my arm to my shoulder. This isn’t good.

I must have pinched something. Massage felt good but didn’t change anything. Time for a new approach.

I had met Randall at a networking group and he was always gracious and friendly and kind. I thought I would go see what he said, and maybe with a little snap, crackle, pop, I’d be back to normal. But none of this weekly or forever stuff.

I was glad he suggested x-rays – something tangible to look at and see what to fix. I saw the pictures in the rooms showing the progression from a healthy spine to an unhealthy spine. Wow, the unhealthy spine must hurt.

Then he showed me my spine. Hang on – it looks just like the unhealthy spine! The one that must hurt!

Ouch!

As he outlined the treatment plan, it suddenly dawned on me. It’s taken me years to get my spine in the (bad) shape it’s in.  What on earth made me think that I could undo that damage in one or two sessions?

As I went through the treatments, the numbness went away. I started noticing my neck and shoulders weren’t as sore all the time. But the biggest surprise was when I gardened in the spring. I was lifting rocks and digging, laying landscape fabric and hauling bags of mulch. Normally I’d be taking Advil and feeling reeeeeally stiff and sore. But not this year – not at all! I felt great! Amazing, really. I couldn’t imagine that it would make that much difference. But it did.

So, I’m a believer. No longer a skeptic.  Excited to refer family and friends, and to tell them what a difference chiropractic can make in their daily lives.

Dr. Trester will tell you that the end, it’s about wellness. It’s not a quick fix, but a way to help get your body to a point where it can heal itself.

Now that makes perfect sense.

My Chiropractic Thought Adjustment
I was a carefully constructed sceptic when I first walked into Dr. Trester's office.

'I don’t need chiro - I do yoga.'
'I don’t need chiro - I just need a massage.'
'I don’t need chiro - I have excellent posture.'
'I don’t need chiro - it is too expensive.'

Benefits had brought me through the door. Curiosity had me come back.

Phase 3 spinal decay.  Initial care plan: $1,500. Ouch.

'I'll come for as long as I can afford.'

The adjustments were so simple:
TAP TAP on the feet
'Turn your head to the left'
TAP TAP
'Turn your head to the right'
TAP TAP
'And face down.'
TAP TAP TAP on the spine. Done.

It felt like he was individually tapping out all the bad bumps, emotional & physical, acquired over my life.

TAP...snowboarding whiplash
TAP...when my dad died
TAP...grade 10 rugby tackle

I felt lighter, happier, released from stress past. Unfortunately, my cook's budget could not afford this wondrous experiment to continue. I called to cancel my account. However, my regretful resolution was no match for Trester's conviction & I agreed to come in for another - 'one last' - appointment.

On the bus there, I noticed an elderly woman boarding. I noticed her stooped posture & her well-developed hump. Chiropractic should be part of the medical plan. On the table, I made a decision: Life had given me a generous opportunity & I had already come thus far, I may as well bite the budget and continue care. For what good is it to save to see the Great Pyramids if I can't look up at them properly?

Now, after seven months of Dr. Trester's chiropractic adjustments, my posture has improved, my yoga practice is stronger, & I no longer need to work out the knots in my shoulder blades out on doorjambs!  I dance in my living room again & I haven’t yet succumbed to a cold!

With deep gratitude to Dr. Trester, Shalene, & Organic Lives
Thank you for the life adjustment.

Aloha,

My name is Wes Steele, and like many of you, I am a proud patient of Dr. Trester.  However, if you have not yet decided to commit to chiropractic as a means of healing, then pay close attention to my story.  I pledge to you that the following story is not fabricated or embellished upon in any way, nor am I receiving any monetary gain from doing this.  My only goal in writing this is to inform you that chiropractic is “THE REAL DEAL” and help you understand just how much it can help.

The next time you happen to visit Dr. Trester’s office, take a stroll past Shalene’s desk (more on her later) and head towards the water cooler.  Notice the 18 liter jugs of water sitting on the floor?  Perhaps even try picking one of those up.  Pretty damn heavy isn’t it?  In case you were wondering, it’s about 45lbs.  That’s what I currently do for a living.  I deliver an average of 130 jugs daily to various residences and businesses across Vancouver.  That’s nearly 6,000lbs of water that I carry every day.  Yes that’s right ladies (wink), but I digress.  Needless to say, my back never stood a chance.

Right around Christmas time of 2011, I pulled up to Dr. Trester’s office to make my regularly scheduled delivery.  I grabbed 2 jugs of water from my truck, took 3 steps towards the door when it happened....  My back had officially gone on holidays early.  I quickly put the bottles down before collapsing onto my knees in absolute agony.  I remained in intense pain for the next 2 minutes, though it seemed much longer.  Eventually the pain subsided and I completed my delivery, although each step was taken with extreme caution and angst.  “How could this be happening to me?” I wondered.  I had no prior back issues and was only 2 months removed from my 26th birthday.  Something had to be done....

I wasn’t sure what course of action to take with regards to treatment for my back pain, but I can tell you that I had not really considered chiropractic as an option.  Now I know there are many skeptics when it comes to chiropractic.  You may very well be one yourself.  As for me, I was not skeptical, however I was under-informed.  As fate would have it, Dr. Trester offered me a free consultation as a Christmas gift...probably for the quality service that I had provided for him over the past year.  I thought to myself, “what have I got to lose?”

Within 2 weeks, I visited Dr. Trester to learn more about how chiropractic could help me.  Now I can’t sit here and pretend like I fully understand exactly how chiropractic helps the body to heal.  If you have any questions, you need to ask Dr. Trester.   To the best of my knowledge, here’s what I know...  Chiropractic is about putting the body into the best position, or state, so that the body is able to heal itself.  I’ll admit that I wasn’t exactly sure what that meant at the time, but I was sold regardless.

It didn’t take long to realize that I had struck gold.  After just 2 appointments, I could actually feel more strength in my lower back, as well as more mobility and less tension in my neck and shoulders area.  I cannot begin to describe the feeling of elation that I had from being able to literally feel immediate results.  Now I must preface by stating that, as with anything involving the human body, results may vary.  We’re all unique individuals and we all react differently to different things.  Whatever the case may be, I implore you to stick with it.  Even if you don’t experience the same immediate results that I was fortunate to have, incredible results could be just around the corner for you.

So here I am about 8 months later...still on the healing path, but feeling 100x better.  The most important thing is that I can trust my body again.  As a result, I’m able to once again freely enjoy the many leisure activities that our beloved city has to offer.  I want to thank you for taking the time to read about my story.  I hope this tips the scales for you in favor of chiropractic.  Not to satisfy any agendas, but simply for the sole purpose of you feeling better.  I’ll see you on the healing path my friends.

Before I leave you, let’s revisit the front desk shall we.  See the lovely and talented blonde woman sitting there?  Her name is Shalene.  Every time you walk in, you’ll be greeted by this wonderful woman.  She always has the biggest smile on her face, and her everlasting positive personality makes you feel so welcomed when you arrive for your adjustment.  Seriously folks, I’ve never seen the woman frown EVER!!!  Once again, her name is Shalene...I call her “Columbo”, but you can call her the “MVP”.  She genuinely cares about everyone and goes the extra mile to accommodate you.  Need to reschedule an appointment?  She’ll work with you to find a suitable date and time.  Running a bit late?  She’ll try to squeeze you in wherever possible.  Her efforts, along with the Doc’s, combine for a real unique and special atmosphere, unmatched anywhere else in Vancouver.

A special thanks to both of you from the bottom of my heart.

Mahalo,

"My story would be very different if I were telling it 6 months ago than the one I am able to tell today.

I have suffered from severe back pain and headaches half of my life. I didn't know what it was like to not have headaches every week and to have constant tightness, tension and pain in my neck and back. I was in a car accident many years earlier and had stresses in my life as we all do but I couldn't understand how either of these things could cause such distress to my body for so many years.

I tried everything. Seeing various doctors, massage therapists, physio therapists, acupuncturists and chiropractors. All promised it was nothing serious and if I kept coming I would feel better. This wasn't making sense I did keep going and I was far from better, it seemed I was getting worse.

A month before seeing Dr. Trester I realized I definitely was getting worse. The headaches were now daily and debilitating, my back seemed to have seized up and I could barely turn my head - it had never been this bad.

Someone very close to me referred me to Dr. Trester and if it wasn't for him I don't think I would have given it a try, I had lost faith that anyone could help me.

Upon arriving at the office, I was greeted by Shalene. She had a beautiful smile and such a warm endearing personality - she gave me a glimmer of hope I was in the right place.

My first appointment with Dr. Trester was about the process and starting to educate me. I have to admit I was extremely frustrated when I found out I wouldn't be having a treatment. I had come to him in pain, I didn't want to watch a video and take x-rays...little did I know I would look back on this as the beginning of all the good to come.

I like to refer to my second appointment with Dr. Trester as my "light bulb moment"...as Oprah would say. As Dr. Trester showed and explained my x-rays to me my emotion was bittersweet. I could not believe in all the years nobody had taken an x-ray and I couldn't believe the condition of my spine - it was actually scary to see. I finally understood this pain wasn't in my head, it was very real and serious and Dr. Trester understood. There was a tremendous amount of healing in having this knowledge alone. I needed no further confirmation; I knew this would be the start of my journey to recovery.

Dr. Trester has been treating me for 6 months. It hasn't been easy but he has been empathetic, patient and understanding the whole way. I received my diploma and graduated to the wellness program (my maintenance treatments) a few weeks ago. Dr. Trester has given me a part of my life back. I now rarely have headaches and I have normal movement back in all the areas I was suffering. I am able to look forward to continuing my healing and living a healthy life.

Dr. Trester and Shalene had faith and believed in my healing for me until I was able to do so for myself.

I am truly grateful to you Dr. Trester, thank you so very much."

"I started my chiropractic care with Dr. Trester well over a year ago now...almost 2 years ago.

After a few weeks of regular appointments, I noticed a huge difference in my range of motion with my neck. I had no idea that I wasn't "truly" shoulder checking effectively or at least that I could be seeing a lot more than I was. I am amazed at how much further I can check now.

After completing their suggested care program I graduated to wellness care and have been seeing Dr. T religiously every 2 weeks.

As well, I have been a committed flag football player for almost 14 years now. Even though we are technically a non-contact sport...things happen on the field. After my games, I really need to see Dr. T. I walk into his office feeling stiff, sore and sometimes in pain from collisions that happened during the weekend games. But after my adjustments, I am ready for another weekend of football. I don't know that I would be a benefit to the team without Dr. T. So thanks fo contributing to my game.

So from the bottom of my heart Dr. T, thank you for taking care of me."

"Growing up, I started playing sports at a young age beginning with softball, tennis and golf around age 5, then moving onto volleyball, basketball, badminton and track & field in high school. Teammates commonly experienced injuries, and I always considered myself extremely lucky to not have incurred any specific ones over the years myself - but I would often have a sore back and neck.

It wasn't until a few years later that things started to feel like they were really headed downhill. For almost 2 years I worked full time as a Medical Laser Technician and as a server part-time causing a lot of physical strain and lack of sleep. I began to have severe pain and clicking in my shoulder that made my work days pretty much unbearable.

Along with quitting my serving job and cutting down hours at my clinic, I also tried everything from physio, IMS, rolfing, massage therapy, infrared saunas, acupuncture and even painkillers to try and achieve some sort of relief. I had known Dr. Trester for a few years, but only recently in the last 6 months began to understand what he really did as a Chiropractor. I had seen a few other Chiropractors in the past and always felt the appointments were not customized to my specific concerns.

Dr. Trester pays particular attention to not only the areas that are causing me pain at the time, but to the overall wellness of the body. It's been a little over 6 months since my first adjustment with Dr. Trester and I can now say that I have more pain-free days in a week than not, and I look forward to more improvement in the future."

"Ever since my mom's poor experience with a chiropractor, I've been wary. Although I'd had ongoing back pain and stiffness for years, I accepted it and carried on until I experienced the worst pain shooting through my back. So I called Dr. Trester.

From the very first visit, I was impressed! Shalene put my nerves at ease with her warm welcome. And after just one adjustment with Dr. Trester, I started to feel better than I had in years.

My back pain and stiffness have dramatically improved. I feel full of vitality and am able to enjoy being active without some of the limitations I was previously experiencing.

Now I see Dr. Trester regularly to keep improving my back and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hi, my name is Raj Toor and I would like to thank Dr. Trester. I have gone everywhere looking for help. I went for x-rays, ct scans, specialists, physiotherapy and even another chiropractor but no one could give me any answers. I was having trouble all over and it had gotten to the point where every step I took was painful. I was starting to feel miserable and that is not who I am. I've always been happy go lucky. This pain was changing the way I looked at life, loss of confidence and joy. Then one day, I went to get a massage hoping it would help. While I was there I was lucky enough that wonderful lady name Michelle recommended Dr. Trester. She told me he had helped her a great deal. So I made an appointment, came in and saw the doc. He took x-rays and explained things, explained the x-rays to me and put me on a 6 month care plan. At first I didn't notice much relief and I thought here I go again, same story different characters, but after a few treatments went by, I started feeling better and better and now walking is not a chore. I'm back to being happy go lucky with lots of confidence. It's an on-going process but with every treatment, I get closer to my goals and I am grateful that I came here and that I still continue to come here. So in short, I can't thank you enough Dr. Trester. You're a life saver. Oh and I would also like to thank Shalene for always juggling my appointments and keeping everything so organized.

I was a chiropractor, practicing in Vancouver from June 1954 to February 28/1987 32 years. During this time my family and my patients became my major priorities in life. I struck a balance between these priorities which allowed me ample time to remain dedicated to the wellbeing of my patients and therefore, my practice grew to a point where I needed an associate to help me. Because I married the right woman and because we worked so efficiently together, I was able to retire three months into my 56th year. Obviously, over a 32 year period I had the opportunity to identify with the skills of my peers. I state the above only to allow the reader to appreciate the fact that I am truly qualified to make accurate judgments' regarding the varied facets of Chiropractic practices and the skills of those who practice it.

Our athletic, oldest son rugby, soccer, baseball certainly received treatments from me over the years for his various injuries. I must admit to being delighted when I realized that Dr. Trester had taken over his care. So Doreen & I just had to meet Randall & Shalene which we did in April of 2010 when they had a booth at the Wellness show. Within 5 minutes of being in their presence an aura of sincerity and integrity seemed to envelop Doreen & I to such a degree that I stated to Dr. Trester & Shalene that they were both people whom Doreen & I would like to have out at our home. Now in 53 years of marriage I have never said such a thing without first checking with Doreen, but somehow, I just knew she would agree and, of course, she did & we have been fine friends ever since.

Dr. Randall Trester: Here is a Chiropractor who shares my philosophy of Chiropractic. Here is a Chiropractor that remains dedicated to the wellbeing of his patients just as I was for 32 years. Here is a man with extensive knowledge in the Health Sciences and a man with superlative skills in the application of his Chiropractic techniques.

Shalene Trester: Here is a wife, also decided to the wellbeing of every patient she so personally greets in the office on the phone.

Randall & Shalene: Here is a team that co-ordinates an enhancing atmosphere whenever in their presence. Every visit, an overall therapeutic experience from the waiting room to the treatment room.

Randall & Shalene: How fortunate that we, our friends & family members have found you two. They & we will all be enhanced both mentally and physically in the life because we are in your care.

Doreen, 79 years old and me at 81 years old still require Chiropractic treatments, not because we have been suffering any major incapacities but because even the minor afflictions which we have can be treated successfully by Chiropractic adjustments. At our stage of life, degenerative changes have developed in our spines which can impair our neural integrity. Well not in Dr. Randall Trester has anything to do with it. He is devoted to keeping us in as good a health as possible & we have benefitted greatly.

Doreen & Dr. Jack L.

Upon my meeting Dr. Trester for the first time in April, 2010, he suggested regular Chiropractic Treatments can help to identify and correct little problems before they become serious.

I wish to improve my wellbeing because, even though I am 79 years of age, there are many days when that age is just a number because I enjoy a very active life.

My first visit to his office was April 28, 2011 at which time I was welcomed with such warmth and sincerity by Shalene – Dr. Trester’s most charming wife and receptionist.

For 20 years swelling of my feet, ankles and legs was the norm whenever I was on long driving trips by car or travelled long distances by plane.  Acupuncture helped but only for a short time.  A bilateral ligation had been performed on the saphenous veins but did not correct the problem completely.

As of September 20, 2011, after many Chiropractic Treatments from Dr. Trester, the circulation in my legs, feet, and ankles had improved so greatly that during and after a recent 2 week driving trip of 5100 KM there was no swelling in those lower extremities.

My lumbar spine has been strengthened to a point that I am no longer susceptible to the physical stresses that I was subject to previously.

Because some of my friends and family know I am absolutely delighted with the results of my Chiropractic Treatments from Dr. Trester, I have suggested that if they want “Only the Best” they visit this office.

"In 2001, I had my first experience with back pain. I later found out it was Spondylolisthesis, which means I have pain every day. I tried physio, acupuncture, chiro, massage, and various other remedies.

My fiance passed me a coupon for Dr. Trester's office. Only 8 months later, I'm feeling great! A big part of that is the help I have received from this office.

As Dr. Trester will tell you, your spine is integral to the proper functioning of your entire body. Take care of it and you will feel your best all the time. When you don't feel great, come back into the office. Or like me, don't ever leave!"

Congratulations Jill! We're proud of you for taking control of your overall health and wellness.

My spine was in pretty bad shape.  I wasn’t able to breathe properly, as Dr. Trester discovered that my rib had been slightly pushing on my lung.  My neck was constantly “cracking” every time I stretched it, and I always felt like I had a knot above my right shoulder blade and tightness in my jaw.

I had received massage therapy for many of my symptoms, providing great initial relief.  A few days later, unfortunately, the pain would always return.

I was looking for another option; something that would provide me with lasting results.  After meeting Dr. Trester, I decided chiropractic might be the answer.

I had seen a chiropractor a few years earlier, but I was not introduced to any type of care plan, only the suggestion to come in once in a while for an adjustment.  Without being given the right information, I was not aware that this approach wasn’t actually helping me heal, only giving me temporary relief, must like the massage therapy.

I felt very welcomed at Dr. Trester’s office.  The atmosphere is very relaxing and engaging, providing an overall positive environment.  Dr. Trester is always very explanatory and careful in his practice, and Shalene’s positivity is very refreshing. 

A first I wasn’t sure it would work, as I didn’t feel any results right away.  But I was determined to give it a real shot, so I kept all my appointments, and did all the stretches Dr. Trester gave me to do during the week.  After a while, I started to notice some differences in how I felt.  Now, at the end of my treatment, most of the pain that I began treatment with has dissipated.

I no longer have trouble breathing, my muscles are not tense like they used to be, and the tightness in my jaw is much more beatable now after chiropractic treatment.  I feel like my range of motion has increased, and the results have motivated me to continue improving my health through preventative chiropractic, yoga, dance, and active living.

I did not truly understand the health benefits of chiropractic treatment until I felt them for myself.  I am very impressed with the results Dr. Trester has helped me achieve, and I couldn’t be happier to have found a treatment that actually works.

"Thanks Dr. Trester and Shalene for your flexibility and always making it work for me when I have to rechedule appointments. You Rock! I always look forward to coming and seeing you both. As you can see, "Alex" the monkey is very much appreciated. He has been biking around Stanley Park with us, joined many picnics downtown, and gets "special treatments" at nighttime."

"I came to see Dr. Trester about my lower back pain. I had never seen a chiropractor before and was a little unsure. Shalene made me feel welcome the first time I visited, and Dr. Trester was professional, knowledgeable, and approachable. He truly cares about his patients and never rushes through his appointment. He always has time to listen and answer questions.

After 5 months, I have less headaches and less lower back pain. I have more energy and I am happier because my body is getting the help that it needs.

If you are determined to getting healthier, then you should definitely come see Dr. Trester. With his adjustments, recommendations, and homework, slow and surely you will notice change."

"I came to Dr. Trester a desperate woman. For 18 months I'd been suffering from two herniated discs which resulted in sciatica and intense, chronic lower back pain. I went from running marathons to laying on the couch idle. All the doctors said the same thing: "Sorry kid, you're going to have back pain forever."

Then I met Dr. Trester. From the get-go, he treated me with professionalism, optimism and genuine kindness. He was in my corner, and I knew it! I felt he was as committed to my recovery as I was.

With regular adjustments, a series of stretches, and ongoing good care, I started to see results immediately. Within a month, I was jogging again. Within 3, I was working out with my trainer doing planks without back pain (a small yet mighty victory!).

I am confident that with ongoing wellness care and Dr. Trester on my side, I will achieve my goal of running a half marathon this Fall. Dr. T literally gave me back my life."

"I started seeing Dr Trester following a minor skating fall. A loss of strength in my left shoulder pushed me to seek out help. There were many other warning signs unrelated to the skating incident - aches/pains/stiffness, headaches, and a loss of flexibility. I had visited chiropractors in the past but had mostly viewed them as a short term solution.

From the first visit my experience with Dr Trester was different and very welcoming. I noticed small improvements and felt pain relief almost immediately. Within 2 to 3 months of treatment felt like I was 10 years younger! My mobility and flexibility have improved, I've lost nearly all of the small aches and pains, my recovery time is hugely improved, and I have much more energy in general.?

Now, my wife and newborn daughter also see Dr Trester regularly. The benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments can't be overstated!"

When I first came to Dr. Trester, my back and neck were in such bad shape, I couldn't sit longer than 15 minutes. I would have sharp pains going up from my back to my neck and it made driving very difficult. I also had a hard time breathing. I was not able to do shoulder checks and felt very uncomfortable during meetings with my clients. This was a huge problem as more than 50% of my time at work is on the road and meeting clients. Friends recommended Dr. Trester to me and I decided I had to give it a try. Having treatments for about 4 months, I have to say my back is almost 100 percent and my neck is much improved. It was a great experience from start to finish. The office was always flexible in booking my appointments and changing them whenever I had urgent matters arise at work. The office environment was always positive, pleasant and comfortable. Dr. Trester's chiropractic treatments have increased the quality of my life both professionally and personally. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Tresters services

Dear Team Trester

I wanted to thank you both for the contribution you've made to my all-around health this winter. It really has made a difference for me. Not only is my back feeling better than it has in the past couple of years, but also your nurturing, hospitable friendliness/kindness has encouraged my soul.

Visiting your office has been like a little vacation from the gloominess of the winter season for me.

I just wanted to say: you do good work.

When my wife came home from her first adjustment she felt great, her back had been hurting for quite some time and she was very pleased with the results she had on the very first day with Dr. Trester. She convinced me to see Dr. Trester and at first, while hesitant, I made the trip and am grateful that I made the right choice. I had never received any treatments other than painkillers for my neck pain. I knew that simply taking a few pills was definitely not the right answer and was actually looking forward to my first appointment. I had a great initial visit and my previous misconceptions and fears about, “getting my bones cracked back into place,” were addressed by Dr. Trester in a professional and informative way.
Overall, the medical attention I received from Dr. Trester was first rate, and especially pleasing was the genuinely friendly approach of Shalene, her great attitude, and flexibility in accommodating my busy schedule was a huge factor in building a wellness plan into to my hectic day. I am glad that my wife had convinced me to go and I am glad that today my neck and back pain are reduced to the point where I can function productively the entire day.

Moreover, the attitude towards my health has been transformed into the concept of striving for “wellness” through ongoing care and proper care for my health. Currently, our two year old daughter is also an early student of wellness. She is comfortable with Dr. Trester and enjoys her adjustments, she is noticeably relaxed after her treatments and this is much appreciated. Both my wife and I are pleased that she is responding so well. We are also glad that we can instil the philosophy of life long family wellness for our daughter from such an early age.  Thank you

I successfully relocated from Europe to Vancouver at the end of 2009 and the following year seemed to be both emotionally and physically a challenging year. After  suffering from headaches, tension headaches, stiff shoulder and neck, dizziness and vertigo for nine months and numerous unsuccessful visits at different doctors to identify the cause and find a solution for the afore mentioned problems I started my own research on the internet. There was a lot of information out there but chiropractic seemed to come up over and over again. At that time I did not have a clue what chiropractic was but I had nothing to loose. So, once again, with the help of the internet I found Dr. Trester.

I remember, the first time I saw him I was so desperate that when he asked me how I was doing I burst into tears. How embarrassing I thought to myself. But Dr. Trester’s friendly and caring but yet professional manner made it quickly clear for me that I was in the right place. As a result of the examination it turned out that my neck had not only lost its natural curve but actually was curving in the other direction which put pressure on my nerves. Finally I had the answer! Already after the first treatment I felt much better. No vertigo attacks ever since!!! I would not want to miss any treatment because with every adjustment I felt better and better. In the meantime I am in Wellness care and almost back to normal. J Although the natural curve of my neck cannot be completely restored again but it still can be improved. I feel excellent and healthy again, no aggravating headaches or dizziness anymore.

I am absolutely convinced that the adjustments also helped to activate the self healing process of my body, which was crucial at that time, and therefore I successfully recovered from my breast cancer surgery and radiation treatment without any complications. During all that time I could trust Dr. Trester who was a great help and support. We scheduled my adjustments around my radiation treatment and he gave referrals to other great professionals who also supported my healing process.

An unexpected and surprising “side effect” of the adjustments is a painless period. During my whole life I suffered from extremely painful periods and only painkillers made the first day bearable. Not since I started my chiropractic treatments! This is again a proof for me that whatever happens during an adjustment it has an effect on our body!

Dr. Trester, since no words can really express how grateful I am for your commitment and all your help I’d just like to say THANK YOU!

I broke my back 5 years ago, while cliff jumping in Greece.  I had immediate surgery where they used pins to help heal my spine, a year later the pins were removed.  I was told I didn’t need to do any follow-up activities but I felt that I should do something as so many people have back problems. 
I randomly met Dr. Trester and Shalene at a tradeshow, about 8 months ago and they offered to do an initial consultation.  I had never seen a chiropractor before and was a little unsure how it would help me and if I would actually see results.  After the initial consultation, which included x-rays, Dr. Trester explained the condition of my spine, I hadn’t really thought there would be anything wrong but I actually there was a lot of damage and decay, and came up with a treatment plan.   I was shocked with how intense it was and didn’t know if I was ready for that type of commitment.  I was expecting it to be more like once per month, not 3 times a week!  However he said that at the end of my care plan he would take more x-rays and I would be able to see the results so I figured it couldn’t hurt to try it; I decided to proceed, as preventative care.

Within about 3 weeks of starting my care plan I could actually feel the results.  Before I would get lower back pain from time to time, but as I continued with my treatment it became less and less.  I don’t even notice it anymore and I feel like my posture has improved.  Not only could I feel a change the final x-rays actually showed a real improvement in my spine.  I am glad that I randomly met Shalene and Dr. Trester, their office is very friendly and welcoming and I enjoy my visits.  They are also very accommodating with schedules and working around people’s lives!

I started coming to Dr. Trester in February 2010 after seeking help from health professionals for a month or so after a bad car accident that happened on December 20, 2009.  I had significant soft tissue damage, whiplash and excruciating pain in my neck, back and hips.  I was completely frustrated by doctors that told m e that time would heal the injuries and the pain would eventually go away.  I even had one doctor as me if I had a boyfriend and to have him give me a back massage. 

Dr. Trester was referred to be by a friend and I decided to give it a try.  I decided on chiropractic care due to the pain and the chronic pain in my neck and back which was preventing me from getting a full night of sleep.  I have never been to a chiropractor before and I was extremely skeptical and unsure it was the right treatment for me to undertake.

The first day of my treatments I was living with chronic pain and extremely emotional.  Dr. Trester seemed to actually care about me and reassured me that he could help me to the path of recovery.
Dr. Trester took x-rays of my back and neck. My second consultation Dr. Trester set out to explain the x-ray results and to discuss what my treatment would look like.  I have Stage Two Spinal Decay and my neck is curving in the wrong direction.  I was told by Dr. Trester that I would have to come in regularly for six months.  I was extremely upset by this news.  I left the appointment thinking to myself – this is the only body that I have and it has serious issues.  I was surprised to receive a phone call from Dr. Trester later that evening to see how I was holding up.

It was the first time any health professional had expressed genuine concern for my well being and I started to feel like I had someone who had my back – literally.  It’s not everyday a relative stranger takes the time to ask “Are you okay?” With those three words I knew that I had someone who was dedicated to helping me get back on track.

Over the next six months of regulare treatment I started to feel a significant decrease in the pain in my neck and back.  I no longer have to live with the chronic pain that I was suffering from before my treatment started with Dr. Trester.

Dr. Trester and his skills as a chiropractor have enhanced my overall well being and I am living with less frequent bouts of pain.  I have already told many friends and family about the positive effects chiropractic care has been for me. 

Thank you Dr. Trester!

For most of my life, I’ve endured varying degrees of back pain: a torn rotator cuff here, a low-back injury there, a concussion in my childhood.  I’ve seen chiropractors, massage therapists, physiotherapists and personal trainers, but they never help for long.  The constant pain affected my relationships and my quality of life.  I was tired and grumpy all the time and I felt like an old man, even through I’m only in my mid-thirties. 

After finding Dr. Trester in the Georgia Straight’s “Best in Vancouver” list, I called Shalene to set up a consultation.  I was impressed that Dr. Trester spent two whole hours with me and took a full set of x-rays before even attempting an adjustment.  I also appreciated that he took the time to educate me about my body and answer my questions.

My treatment wasn’t easy: I had ignored my spine for nearly two decades, and I had some serious problems.  As we worked together to re-educate my body, some weeks were harder than others.  I usually didn’t feel like doing my stretches or my exercises, but I did them anyway.  Before long, and for the first time I could remember, I had a few pain-free days in a row.  It was as if someone had turned on the lights.

Weeks later, I’ve “graduated” and I’m now seeing Dr. Trester twice monthly.  My body responds amazingly well to each adjustment – it seems to remember where it should be, even after a bad week.  My wife and son have stated treatment, too, and I hope my son will never experience the kind of pain I did.  Most importantly, I now have the energy and enthusiasm to play with him and take care of my family.

Beginning treatment with Dr. Trester is the best investment I could have made in myself, my family and our future.  I’m sincerely grateful and I’m working hard to “keep the lights on.”

Sincerely

Hi my name is Rachel-Claire and I am 10 years old.  I’ve been very happy since I walked into the front door of Dr. Trester’s office.  All from then until now I’ve been greeted with a friendly, warm smile from Shalene.  It’s a great smile that would lighten your day like the nice feeling of chocolate fondue.  I came to Dr. Trester because I was having foot problems and it ached a lot.  My sister Kaylee had a headache problem and was referred to a chiropractor, and so I tagged along as well.  One day Dr. Trester said to me, “You have subluxations, like your sister” and I said, “Sorry I have whatta whatta?” and he said, “Subluxations”.  He explained to me what a subluxation is and it is when a bone on the spine interferes with the nerve.  Dr. Trester uses an instrument and hits the subluxation.  Now I’m use to what it feels like.  Before I saw Dr. Trester I was using the puffer because I have asthma, and had to go on the Flovent and Ventolin, Nasonex and other drugs like Tylenol, Benadryl, Claritin and antibiotics for pain.  After I visited Dr. Trester several times he said all those can cause subluxations so we tried to avoid them.  My mom, my sister, and I decided on a chiropractor because, we were referred by one of Kaylee’s friend’s mom.  She said it would help and it did.  We agreed and started going.  I’ve never been to a chiropractor before like Dr. Trester.  But I do have a Dentist, a Homeopathic Practitioner, a Doctor, and ENT Doctor, an Eye Doctor, an Asthma Doctor and now a Chiropractor.  I like the friendliness so much that I don’t want to leave.  Now I’m only coming twice a month.  I’m going to miss them and hopefully I will be able to take care of my subluxations and not make them worst.  From the start till now, my subluxations have gone from really bad to good.  Dr. Trester has told me and taught me to eat healthy, exercise, and avoid smoothies and juices, and to drink water instead.  This has changed my health and I’m happy with that because he is forcing me to be healthy and I do want to be healthy.  I would tell my closest friends and family members that chiropractors help you and live healthy and have a fun, fun life.  The spine will take care of you if you take care of it yourself.  Threat the spine how you want the spine to treat you and enjoy the curvature in the spine.  Thank you Dr. Trester and Shalene!!!!

After suffering from headaches 4 days a week since a bicycle/auto collision in 2004 where I went head first through the rear window of a car that veered into our lane, I was in dire need of relief.  I had attempted various forms of treatment, some more thoroughly than others, but none provided relief.  Physical therapy, sports coaches, physician, all provided advice to my condition that had been originally treated at GF Strong Brain Trauma Clinic.  I had heard about chiropractic care in the past, but did not give it much consideration until I met Dr. Randall Trester at BNI, whom I felt comfortable enough with to give it a go.

Within a couple of weeks, Dr. Trester’s chiropractic care coupled with my consistent physical training as a bicycle racer, I could notice a drastic improvement in the mobility in my neck that had been reduced as a result of the auto accident.  I could actually shoulder check! It was just over a month, and my headaches were less than once a week as well.  All of these observations were made while my regular work/life balance remained the same, so I must attribute these benefits to my experiences with chiro care.
I was very well informed and examined before I commenced any procedures with Dr. Trester, so it was very clear on what I was embarking on before I committed.  It was also an ‘adjustment’ to my life at first to make room for 3 times a week visits, that over time have become once a week visits, but Dr. Trester’s staff (Shalene) is really flexible in booking the appointments, and the atmosphere of the clinic is such that it is conducive for relaxing or sending a few emails on the Blackberry while waiting to remain productive while attending to my overall well being!

I have already told my friends and family the difference that chiro has made to my physical health, and coming from a fitness fanatic, they know I am serious!  I train hard, race hard, and take my health very seriously as at the end of the day it is the only thing we have.  As a result of Dr. Randall Trester’s care, I foresee Chiropractic care to be part of my regular fitness and wellness regime for the balance of my days; for that I cannot thank him enough.

Kind regards

I had suffered with lower back pain since my early 20’s, I remember one morning I couldn’t get out of bed, I had to literally roll out of bed and crawl to  door and pull myself up using the door knob.  But of course the pain eventually dissipated.

As I got older the pain would come and go and I would take ‘off the shelf’ back muscle relaxants, and ignored the pain for years.  I knew chiropractic was an option and but my Doctor always seemed to steer me away from it.  Last Fall I came to Dr. Trester’s office with a friend who has been seeing him for quite some time.   Sitting in the office I was reading pamphlets and letters written by other patients, but what really sold me was Shalene’s personality, she spoke to each patient like a friend and always with a smile.   I started to ask her more questions about Chiropractic and she gave me certificate which could use towards my first session. 

My first visit with Dr. Trester was eye opener; he explained things in plain English and sincerity.  After looking at my x-rays and finally seeing what my spine looked like, I did not hesitate to take him on as my Chiropractor.  I first started  to come 3 times a week and then 2 times a week and now I am down to only twice a month…each  session with Dr. Trester is educational and inspirational.  I know that I’ll never go back to having the spine I had back in my teens but I now am educated enough to take care of it.
I speak very highly of my experience with Dr. Trester and of Chiropractic Care in general and advise my friends and family to look into Chiropractic Care and to the source of the pain before taking a pill to just cover it.  I am on the road too and also better educated as to how I can maintain my well being through stretches. 

“Your spine is designed for life, take care of it and it will take care of you” are great words to live by.

Thank you Dr. Trester and Shalene

My treatment at Dr. Trester’s office began in the summer of 2009.  I had experienced lower back pain for some time, but always seems to “get by” with pain relievers until the pain I was feeling subsided, and things went back to “normal.”

However in July, I knew I was feeling something much more serious – something I had obviously neglected to address in the past – that I had allowed to get much worse.  I had sudden tremendous pain that made it difficult to sit in a chair, drive my car, really anything other than standing – that seriously scared me.  It was so debilitating, I was afraid I would have to live with this pain for the rest of my life.  I even questioned if I would need to consider another line of work, which just added to my worry.

Knowing that chiropractic care is effective, though something I unfortunately never made time for in the past, I called a friend and received her recommendation to see Dr. Trester.  When I called the office that afternoon, this smiling voice (warm and caring Shalene) made room for me to see Dr. Trester the next day.

My x-rays showed I had some serious issued to address and Dr. Trester set me up on a regular schedule of adjustments.  He emphasized that having a positive attitude was just as important as my adjustments and encouraged me to commit to this treatment – keep my appointments, do my stretches (I hate doing them, but they make me feel great!) and I would be feeling much better soon.  He assured me that this would be effective treatment for me.  Well, here I am several months later, and I can say that the results have been incredible! I feel so much better, no longer the little “granny” who couldn’t even bend far enough to touch her knees in back in July.  The process has been a real education and I have learned many ways to better care for my spine – which translates into being a healthier person.

Our experience has truly been remarkable, as both my husband and I see Dr. Trester on a regular basis.  We have noticed other physical improvements too, which we know are not a coincidence, just more benefits of chiropractic care.  We feel great!

We first went to Dr. Trester in August 2008 to get our newborn daughter checked over.  We had heard that our niece had a good experience in early childhood, so we thought we would investigate.  Fortunately our daughter’s spine was in good condition.

Fast forward to Christmas 2008, I received a large pain in my lower back while carrying my daughter in a car seat, which was stretched out in front of me at the end of my reach.  Over the next few days I proceeded to take anti inflammatory drugs, but they seemed to have minimal effect.  That was when I decided I should try out chiropractic therapy for myself.

Because we had such a positive experience with our daughter at Dr. Trester’s office, I didn’t even think of going anywhere else.

Not only did the treatments help my immediate lower back problem, but my entire back from neck to hips feel much better, and in the case of my shoulders, I didn’t even know I could feed better.  It’s such a great feeling.

I had been having such a positive result that I encouraged my wife to get examined as well.  She wasn’t really experiencing any blatant back pain, but I know that she got frequent headaches, so why not get checked out?

Now our whole family is feeling better.  My back is feeling stronger, my wife gets headaches much less frequently, and our daughter is getting continual check ups so that she’ll hopefully only ever need minor adjustments.  The best part is that we’re able to play with our daughter without having to worry about whether we’re going to strain ourselves or not, we can just enjoy the time together.

On May 6, 2009 I graduated from my Chiropractic care of “Corrective care” to “Wellness care”.  I was thrilled by my progress and guidance from Dr. Trester along the way.

My discomfort and pain started five years ago when I broke my collarbone.  The break left my shoulder and back stiff, achy and irritated with little relief.  As time passed the discomfort was getting worse and causing me pain.

I started my chiropractic treatment in Nov. 2008 through a referral of a friend to Dr. Trester’s office.  I was pleasantly surprised when I was greeted by Shalene’s warm smile and Dr. Trester’s professional caring, healing hands.

My diagnosis was much worse than I thought; I was losing the natural curve in my neck from sleeping without a pillow.  I had a rib out of place, which was a direct result of my break and my left hip was out of alignment.  I first started with care three times a week.  After three of four visits, I was aware of gradual steady relief with noticeable results in increased mobility.

Today is March 13, 2009 and I have 50% increased mobility in my neck, my rib is back in place and my hips are aligned.  I now visit the office once every two weeks.

I feel fantastic!!

My name is Michelle McLeod and I am twenty-one years old.  I have been receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Trester and his office since August of last year and currently go for adjustments once every two weeks.  I went to Dr. Trester’s office for an exam because of constant neck pain, chest pain,; especially when I slept and lower and upper back pain that I suffered as a  result of a seven month backpacking trip, making the previous damage even worse.  I’ve experienced back and chest pain for about ten years, ever since a painful accident, fracturing my rib in three places.  I have tried everything to find a solution for my pain; I’ve been to multiple x-rays, specialists and massage therapy.  Although the massage therapy did help relive my pain it was only temporary relief, that required constant weekly check-ups that did not always fit with my schedule.  Finally it feels after ten years of pain and discomfort I had found a solution, I went to see Dr. Trester based on a recommendation from my boyfriend.  I had never been to a chiropractor before but since I felt I had tried everything else, I decided to give it a try, what was the worst that could happen?

My first visit to se Dr. Trester I was very nervous, the idea of having my back “cracked” did not appeal to me.  I was greatly mistaken however, my first visit I was examined, an x-ray was taken and I was shown how the spine works and everything for my right hip, upper neck, and middle back, each adjustment helping to make me feel better.  After a handful of sessions and continued progress, Dr. Trester came up with a recovery plan, a seventeen week plan for adjustments to loosen up my tense, tight muscles and help my spine.  I had to make sure I kept up my part of the commitment, by, never missing m y appointments, drinking lots of water, increasing my exercise and do daily stretches on my own time.  Chiropractic care has completely enhanced my total wellness; I have completed my seventeen week plan and am now working on maintaining my wellness and stretching my spine.  I no longer suffer from chest pain, I sleep better, and I can be active for longer periods of time and only rarely suffer from discomfort.  I’ve told my friends and family about the care that I’ve been receiving and it’s sparked an interest for them in their lives, I think everyone should have a chiropractic examine, because the spine can tell us a lot about the pain we feel throughout our bodies, and it it’s not dealt with it can lead to bigger problems down the road.  There is no harm in getting examines, in fact, the younger he better, to reduce problems in our adult lives.

Good chiropractors are hard to find.  I’ve had three so far, including Dr. Trester, and given the fact that I am older than he is, I should be in good hands for a long time.  I have always been heavily involved in many different sports activities which do take a toll on your body after a while.  I also have had a few vehicle accidents where I have been hit from behind inflicted upon me to add to the mix.

After unsuccessful treatments with another Vancouver chiropractor, I began treatments and a recovery program with Dr. Trester for chronic back and neck pain, along with some let tingling and sciatica nerve problems.  Things were progressing very well until another car accident and being rear ended yet again, causing a relapse from the significant improvements I had made over a two year period.  This we started over, and now I am to the point where “normal” feels good again.  He also assisted with my lawyer in getting me a large settlement with ICBC.

Having a good chiropractor gives your body the boost it needs to heal and strengthen to a full recovery.  With proper structural integrity you can build our from there with fitness training and a proper diet, all part of the total “Wellness Care” that Dr. Trester prescribes to, and practices himself.

If you really want to get well from the inside out you need to get started with Dr. Trester! Thanks Dr. T!
