Message from the CEO


Spring! My favourite season is upon us once again, a time of renewal and change. This time of year I like to stop and take stock of the positive achievements we have all made thus far into the New Year. Here at OWC our focus continues to be our esteemed patients. In 2015, we have committed to ensuring that the patient experience meets, and exceeds, their expectations. We have recently put into place ways that allow you to easily share your experience and provide valuable feedback that can improve all OWC locations. Please be sure to: submit a review  and share your experience today. You can also be heard by leaving us an anonymous comment card at any OWC location.  

As part of our continued effort to perfect the OWC patient experience, since our last newsletter, we have added a new location:

East Hills (Inside Walmart Medical Clinic)

255 East Hills Blvd. SE

Calgary, AB T2A 4X7


We have also embarked on an exciting new partnership with Ideal Protein Weight Loss that we feel falls in line with our goal of making multidisciplinary Health and Wellness services available for all. Ideal Protein is a medically designed and professionally supervised weight-loss program. It is a low-carb, pancreas resetting, fat targeting, yet muscle sparing protocol. Clients are coached into ketosis where they burn stored fat as fuel. Women lose an average of two-three lbs per week and men lose an average of three-four lbs. Dieters follow four phases of the protocol which gives them a beginning and an end, and teaches them incrementally everything they need to know to maintain their success.

OWC is pleased to announce our sponsorship of the First Annual CMCC AB BackSwing Golf Tournament. This event will be held on Tuesday June 23, 2015. AB Backswing golf tournament is being held at one of the premium golf facilities in Calgary, Alberta. Nestled on two hundred acres in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Bearspaw Country Club offers you the opportunity to experience an exquisitely manicured course. This amazing course boasts a full 180 degree view of the magnificent mountains, a distant view of Calgary's downtown skyline, and has proudly hosted Local, Provincial, and National golf tournaments since opening in 1983. Further details on this event can be found by visiting:

First Annual AB BackSwing 

Funds raised through AB BackSwing tournament will be directed to the McMorland Family Research Chair in Mechanobiology. This tournament is open to patients, providers, and more. We hope to see you on the course!

Finally, I would like to take a moment and send a big thank you to the OWC Team of practitioners for your efficiency and dedication to OWC's goal of providing the best patient care possible. The OWC Team continues to grow and we are pleased to have welcomed some wonderful new Chiropractor's, Physiotherapists, and Massage Therapists to the OWC Team over the past few months.

As always I offer my sincere wishes to you and yours for a relaxing, healthy, and happy spring and summer.

Yours in Health,                             

Dr. Shane Kraft, CEO



The Connection Between Thoughts, Feelings, and the Experience of Pain

For many years pain was thought to be caused directly by injury or disease. It wasn't until it was discovered that pain could in fact exist even after apparent healing, or with no known physical source, that other explanations were sought out to explain the phenomenon of pain.

It is now widely recognized that pain is not a purely physical sensation, but involves how one thinks and feels. According to the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), pain is... Read More

Meet Dr. Oksana Tcherbak!
OWC is pleased to welcome Dr. Oksana to the OWC 17th Ave. location


 Dr. Oksana Tcherbak earned her degree of Doctor of Chiropractic from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. She is a proud millennium graduate of 2000.


Her roots belong to Ukraine, where she was born and raised, and completed her first degree in Engineering of Civil Aviation. In 1992 she experienced a major turning point in her life - the Soviet Union fell apart and as a result, the economic and political situation in her homeland did not promise any future to a new graduate engineer. The opportunity came to immigrate to Canada and she arrived in St. John's Newfoundland on Canada Day in 1992. While attending a language school for new Canadians she became an active participant of YMCA as a staff member. Oksana obtained her fitness trainer certification and through this was introduced to the chiropractic profession.


A healthy lifestyle based on holisms and wellness was a normal everyday life for her and her family in Ukraine. She grew up with regular physical activities, sports, seasonal and local nutrition without pop drinks and sugary processed foods, they were simply not available...
