Chiropractor

Hello and welcome to our website. My name is Dr. Jasminder Pannu. I was born in Mission, B.C., after which my family moved to Abbotsford. My family operated a small blueberry farm during most of my younger years. At 15, my family moved to Surrey, where I have resided since. Growing up on a farm was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had in my life, primarily because it was quiet and peaceful. Currently, my husband Mantej Pannu, who is a real estate agent, and I live in a suburb of Surrey. Our dream is to live on a farm or valley with a lot of open space. One of my joys in life has always been spending quality time with family and friends. Another joy of mine has been traveling, and my curious nature calls for me to explore the vast cultures around this beautiful world. In the last few years, I have travelled to Peru, Argentina, Spain, Cuba, Dominican Republic, and India. My favorite place to visit was Peru, mainly for its rich history, Machu Picchu ruins, and the beautiful countryside. The people were friendly and most humble. My hopes are to travel more throughout South America and volunteer for the Chiropractic Without Borders.

Your probably wondering how and why I chose this field. The science of Chiropractic has been around for well over 100 years. The art of chiropractic has been practiced since the time of Hippocrates, the father of medicine. In fact my goal since childhood has always been to help others in need. When I saw someone injured or stressed I felt an overwhelming urge to help them in any way I could. During my first year two years at Simon Fraser University, I was contemplating becoming a Psychologist versus another type of health care practitioner. After completing my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Early Childhood Education, I realized that I wanted a career that was different and gratifying. My older brother was already a chiropractor by this point, and currently he is practicing in Everett, Washington. I decided to go to chiropractic school. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree, and a Doctor of Chiropractic from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon in 2008. Shortly after my graduation I began practice at Back and Body Basics Chiropractic and Massage Therapy Clinic.

I chose chiropractic because I believed in natural medicine. The idea of the human body to heal naturally on its own intrigued me. The body has an innate ability to heal on its own, without the use of drugs and surgery. Why all of the sudden do humans need drugs to heal from injury and disease, when we did not in the past. I felt that the world needed more natural healers. Medicine was not going to give me the gratification like Chiropractic has, and I learned this early on before even thinking about applying to Chiropractic school. Chiropractic is not just about treating people with back pain, it is an opportunity for people to learn about healing their bodies without relying on external influences, such as medicine. Chiropractic is a natural, safe, and effective way in treating a wide variety of conditions and ailments.

The joy of imparting the chiropractic knowledge has been growing larger and larger in my heart, and I hope through this knowledge other people can experience what I have experienced over the last few years.

I have taken many courses in Chiropractic Pediatrics, through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). I have comprehensive knowledge and experience in a wide range of gynecologic and pediatric disorders, including but not limited to: intrauterine constraint, breech babies, birth trauma, colic, developmental delays, autistic spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, scoliosis, etc. The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association who certifies chiropractors in the Websters technique defines it as “a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustments that reduces interference to the nervous system and balances maternal pelvic muscles and ligaments. This in turn reduces torsion in the uterus, a cause of intra-uterine constraint of the baby and allows for optimal fetal positioning in preparation for birth.”

The baby is sometimes unable to get into a head down position due to what is called intra-uterine constraint (breech baby). The treatment is a combination of gentle adjusting to balance the SI joints and gentle ligamentous trigger point work to reduce the tension, the torsion and constraint in the uterus and allow for more room for the baby to move and better position itself.

My practice approach involves physical therapy modalities along with soft-tissue rehabilitation techniques and chiropractic manipulation. This clinic offers massage therapy, orthotics, spinal decompression and much more.
