NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR

 

Dr. Michael Bastien is a naturopathic doctor committed to helping his patients find solutions to their health issues. He believes in an integrated approach to achieving long-term success in treating chronic and acute pain. His goal is to educate and empower his patients, enabling them to thrive. He seeks the root cause of the body’s inability to heal itself, and corrects the problem at its root. To determine the source of the problem, he takes a detailed history, performs a physical examination and uses laboratory tests when required. He is able to work with both natural and pharmaceutical methods to help his patients. Dr. Bastien works cooperatively with other health care professionals so his patients gain the benefit of many practitioners working as an integrated team.

Dr. Bastien earned his Bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Simon Fraser University specializing in rehabilitation and health. He was trained in naturopathy at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine (BINM) in New Westminster. Dr. Bastien is an instructor at BINM in the Department of Physical Medicine, teaching young doctors to use spinal manipulation and soft tissue therapy to treat pain and a range of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.

Dr. Bastien, our naturopathic physician, offers prolotherapy at our Brooksbank location.

What is prolotherapy? It is a safe and effective injection therapy used to treat connective tissue injuries and chronic pain nearly anywhere in the body. To heal an injured ligament or tendon, a solution of dextrose (sugar) and procaine (anesthetic) is injected into the damaged structure. Many chronic pain conditions such as back pain, sciatica, sports injuries, headaches, and tendonitis can be treated with prolotherapy.

For more information, check out Dr. Bastien's bio on our website nssm.ca, or give us a call at Brooksbank at (604) 973 0242.
