DR. VLAD CONSTANTINESCU
Dr. Vlad Constantinescu graduated from the University of Toronto in 2017 with an Honors Bachelor of Science with double majors focused in biochemistry and psychology. In August 2017, he experienced his first chiropractic adjustment and within a month Dr. Vlad found himself eager to learn at his first chiropractic lecture. He finished his Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 2020. To gain more knowledge and to scratch his scholastic itch, throughout his chiropractic education, he took it upon himself to attend one extra seminar every semester. He leverages these seminars, courses, readings and many other tools to get his patients feeling better more efficiently.
Growing up Dr. Vlad was nationally rated in both chess and powerlifting. This is primarily where he learned how to analyze critically and other times to think outside of the box. Dr. Vlad has always lead a healthy and active lifestyle by participating in basketball, rugby and football. He loves to challenge himself by constantly learning and trying new things. Currently, his interests are slacklining, bouldering, and Olympic weightlifting. His lifelong involvement in sports, combined with his in-depth clinical knowledge, was a natural fit for striving to develop further expertise in treating sports injuries and athletes.
One of Dr. Vlad’s favourite quotes from Dr. Karel Lewit – whom is referred to as the Father of Manual Medicine- is “he who treats the site of pain is often lost”. This means that you may be experiencing pain somewhere, but that might not necessarily be the cause of the pain. Dr. Vlad’s philosophy is to first find what is meaningful to you and set goals to get back to your baseline. To achieve this, he uses a systemic approach in which he evaluates everything from your movement, posture, sleep, stress, etc. to find the initial root of your problem. Then, using the appropriate tools he is able to quickly resolve problems while focusing his treatment on empowering his patients to take their health into their own hands. In a more modern way, Dr. Vlad loves to work with his patients as if they were on the same team to get them feeling empowered and better.
