“Opening our Active Approach Cape Breton location has been such an incredible experience. We’ve been so warmly welcomed to the downtown core by the local businesses and patients that it feels like we’ve been part of the community for years. Our patients have expressed such gratitude for our treatment model and the emphasis we put on diagnostic specificity, education, and delivering results. Since opening in June, 2021, we have established incredible referral networks through the region and we are seeing a very active, sports-injury based caseload. We have expanded with our massage therapy division, and with 3000 square feet of clinic space, we will continue to partner with dedicated and skilled practitioners that uphold the Active Approach standards. A passionate, driven chiropractor will truly walk into a busy practice with all of the support and resources they need to thrive within their career and have an incredible work-life balance in this beautiful region of Nova Scotia.”
