Dr. Sarah Dion
Doctor of Chiropractic, Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Radiology, and Fellow of the College of Chiropractic Radiology (Canada)
I graduated from the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières in Trois-Rivières in 2013. I then completed a three-year, full-time diagnostic imaging residency at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and earned board certification as a chiropractic radiologist in September 2016.
I am certified in Level 1 Graston Technique, Kinesiotape, and the Thompson Technique. I employ techniques such as joint manipulation and a variety of different muscle release and instrument-assisted soft-tissue techniques, with the goal of decreasing pain, preventing physical injuries and improving my patients’ overall quality of life. Every treatment is personalized to my patient’s condition and I am more than happy to answer any questions or concerns or discuss treatment options.
My experience has prepared me to treat patients of all ages for a range of conditions including, but not limited to, headaches, back and neck pain, sprains and strains, TMJ (jaw) issues, shoulder, elbow and wrist problems, plantar fasciitis, disc herniation and sciatica, osteoarthritis, and other conditions.
As a chiropractic intern, I assisted in treating sports injuries for a collegiate football team for three months. I also went to Bolivia for a two-week period to participate in a humanitarian mission where I treated over 200 children and adults. I gained extensive clinical experience by treating various types of patients at St-Michael’s Hospital in Toronto for six months. I completed a rotation with an orthopedic surgeon at the Fracture Clinic in Hamilton, where we observed various trauma cases and focused on the interpretation of radiographs, CT, and MRI scans. For the past three years, I have worked as a teaching assistant and tutor at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. During my diagnostic imaging residency, I was mentored by multiple chiropractic and medical radiologists. Following the three-year residency, I was a visiting scholar at the University of California San Diego, where I worked with numerous musculoskeletal radiologists.
Growing up, I was active in diving and swimming. I worked as a lifeguard for the city of Montreal for four years, where I was involved in teaching children how to swim. I have always had an interest in helping my community and I have always been concerned with the well-being of people. I was born and raised in Montréal, and I speak fluently in French and English.
