Ian Dunsmuir is an expert in eliminating pain. He has 17 years of experience treating over 3000 people with over 20,000 treatments. He focuses on sports injuries and acute and chronic pain such as headaches, shoulder, neck, back, hip, knee and leg pain. A competitive athlete himself, Ian faced his own set of health and fitness challenges. In his early years of childhood, he developed a condition with his right hip. It was felt that the best course of action was to have surgery. In 1982, he had corrective surgery. Years later, while training for Ironman Canada Triathlon, he developed chronic hip and low back pain. Ian decided to seek out treatment from an acupuncturist. The acupuncture treatment was amazing and really helped to reduce the pain. Ian has chosen a specialized career that comes naturally, which enhances his compassion and understanding for his patients. He is an expert who is able to provide patients with advanced sports medicine acupuncture treatment techniques to treat pain.
