Felix Lascelles-Palys

Sports Chiropractor

DC, BKin, RCSSC(c), MS (Sport Med)

Dr. Félix Lascelles-Palys received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree concurrently with his Masters in Sports Medicine from University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. Certified in methods including Active Release Techniques (ART), OnBase pitching and hitting (OBU), and Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR), he takes pride in enhancing his skillset whenever possible. Dr. Lascelles-Palys is now a resident of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences continuing his post-doctoral education in sports sciences in Canada.

As an athlete himself throughout his life in several sports, including baseball, ice hockey, ultimate frisbee, and boxing, a long list of his own injuries drew Dr. Lascelles-Palys towards the field of rehabilitation and Sports Sciences. Since finishing his graduate studies, he interned for 6 months in Washington under the supervision of the Seattle Seahawks team chiropractor, has worked as a team chiro for professional lacrosse, professional football, and completed multiple sports medicine placements with various high school teams, college sports, and international tournaments.

Félix’s special interests include shoulder and hip pathologies, especially within throwing and rotational athletes such as baseball, hockey, lacrosse, and football players. The fascination for him lies in the puzzle of putting together the entire body’s production of force within a sport’s skillset, and how to find which aspect is causing the symptoms felt by the patient/athlete. Building “strong mobility” in various sports movements, especially those that include lateral explosive movements, and the unique anatomical variance of patients and its effect on their movements and everyday life are also aspects Dr. Lascelles-Palys enjoys diving further into.

A typical appointment with Dr. Lascelles-Palys includes a thorough medical history taking, and an in-depth physical and orthopaedic exam to assess the breadth of the complaint at hand. Treatment includes primarily soft tissue work with various modalities including ART, joint manipulation or mobilization if indicated, and extensive exercise prescription to help build a foundation to have you reduce symptoms on your own, and making sure the same problem doesn’t keep arising!
