Our Team

Dr. Derek Vinge – Chiropractor

Derek Vinge ​Dr. Derek grew up in an active family in Fernie, BC. The pursuit of optimum health and wellness were always a part of his upbringing which he shares in his treatment approach today. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from UBC with focus on human anatomy and physiology. Further interest in conservative health-care and sports medicine motivated him to attend the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon to obtain his Doctorate in Chiropractic. Additional training includes Active Release Technique (A.R.T.®), Graston Technique (GT®) and Kinesio® Tape, which are soft-tissue therapies and complementary when combined with manual chiropractic adjustments.
Dr. Derek feels that it is important to always keep active and believes it is the key groundwork to fulfill a healthy life. He previously competed on the Track and Field team at UBC specializing in the 5000m and marathon distance. In Victoria he trained and raced on the National Rowing team. Today, to lead by example and keep an active life, he has shifted his athletic focus to running and triathlon. For cross training with his wife Amber, a local Optometrist, they enjoy hiking and skiing, along with everything to do with cycling: mountain biking, cyclo-cross, road riding, and commuting on single-speed. Hobbies include regional history, exploring the local ocean and any form of comedy.
