As a medic for the Ontario Soccer Association, he has treated a variety of acute and chronic injuries during soccer matches.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

Yi has been in the health industry for the past 6 years, working with a variety of clients as a personal trainer, coach, and RMT. He assesses people from a different perspective with the main goal of getting them to feel better and find out more about their body that they didn’t know before.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Yi specializes in restoring proper function to the injured area and its associated structures. He uses cranial therapy, pelvic blocking, and patient-centric rehabilitation to prevent recurrence of symptoms.

What are you proud of in your practice?

Yi is most proud of seeing patients leave the clinic with an overall improvement to their quality of life and functional health. He loves to see athletes get stronger and compete unencumbered by injuries.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I see my all patients as unique puzzles to solve. I enjoy the challenge of diagnosing the root of my patient’s issue. From there I put a treatment plan in place so that my patient can be pain-free without recurring injuries or symptoms.

    Went in for jaw pain and after a consult and one session it was completely gone. Yi did a great job and walking me through what he was doing and the purpose of each step. Would highly recommend for a first time user of chiropractor.
