This is a a great clinic, whether you are looking for just a chiropractor, or a more rounded wellness approach.  Dr. Jiwa has been instrumental in me reaching weight loss goals and improved health by ensuring I prevented new injury, helping me with pre-existing problems, and providing invaluable advice on proper stretching.

Having a RMT in house (Evgeny; he’s outstanding!), has also made everything easy and convenient.  I recommend Dr. Jiwa and Evgeny to all my friends and family who are looking for a great chiropractor or RMT.

You also can’t beat it for easy transit access; use the skytrain exit that backs onto 10th, and cross the street.

Exceptional quality in service, STOP looking cause this is the Chiropractor you’ve been searching for. Dr. Jiwa and her amazing staff have tremendously improved my recovery after i was rear ended this summer. Each time I enter the clinic they make me feel at home. My back and neck have improved greatly since finding this clinic. The progress I’ve seen has given me hope that ill fully recover.

She’s was there when I was exhausted emotionally, I thought the pain in my back and neck would never go away. I was unable to attend concerts with friends, sit in lectures for long periods, and stand up for more than 30 minutes at a time, but Dr Jiwa has showed me progress I never thought was possible.

Dr. Jiwa is a gentle and compassionate chiropractor who cares greatly about the health and well-being of her clients.

This is a great caring team of professionals that truly care about your wellbeing. Walking into the Backs in Action office you feel welcome and are greeted with warm genuine people.

The environment is so relaxing that it makes anyone who comes in for the first time feel very comfortable.

I have been seeing Dr. Jiwa for over 6 years now and can honestly say she has helped me in so many ways. Being an active person that works on my feet, I would often find myself coming home from a long day unable to even walk. She was quick to diagnose me and help me to get custom orthotics. Ever since, I haven’t had any foot problems and can run without the discomfort I had gotten used to “ignoring”.

I would highly recommend anyone needing chiropractic or orthotic care take the time to have a visit.


Chiropractic has benefited me immensely. There has been a significant pain decrease on a spot that has bothered me for years, Dr. Jiwa helped me through that because she is very good at her job. I would for sure recommend her to friends and family. Along with the great treatments I receive the staff at Backs in Action Wellness Centre are always helpful and informative.

Dr. Jiwa has been one of my primary go-to healthcare practitioners, giving me support on caring for my posture, suggesting appropriate exercises and doing adjustments. Most recently, she helped correct alignment problems caused by a serious bicycle crash, enabling the physiotherapist and massage therapist to better work on the trauma in my shoulder. I absolutely recommend her to anyone needing chiropractic care.

Catherine Bussey

Quite simply put, the pain I used to have is now gone after my treatments with Dr. Jiwa. I feel my health is infinitely better and I feel less discomfort on a daily basis which is overall an excellent improvement. The monthly visits and daily stretching exercises that Dr. Jiwa recommended have proved to be a great help in eliminating the pain I used to experience.

Brigitte Klaric

I am a happy client because I feel respected when I am at Backs in Action! I feel like Dr. Jiwa is doing whatever it takes to help me receive treatment. She has been accommodating and in my opinion has gone above and beyond in order to support me. Chiropractic has benefited me in the way that I usually receive immediate pain relief. The clinics down to earth human to human connection is very non intimidating and supportive.

The energy of the Backs in Action office is healing and energizing. I feel much better after my treatment sessions; I have experienced both the Massage Therapy and Chiropractic Services. I feel Backs in Action has helped me stand taller and feel more relaxed. I am always recommending Backs in Action to my friends and relatives. At the end of the day I am smiling when I go in and when I come out of the office.

Judy Villett

After discovering long term problems with my left shoulder due to 2 cycling accidents I decided to try a different method of treatment. Orthotics, back, neck and hip adjustments combined with massage worked wonders on these long term problems that I thought would be permanent. I now have improved posture, more energy, less back pain, improved mobility and am now able to walk long distances which I never thought I would be able to do.

Kiara Shibley

I’m a student, which means I sit for long period of time, usually hunched over a book or a computer. Both Evgeny and Dr. Jiwa were very attentive and extremely positive. Massage therapy with Evgeny helped relax my entire back, as Evgeny took the time to learn about my lifestyle and incorporated my needs into the treatment. Dr. Jiwa’s Chiropractic treatment opened up my upper back and this allowed me to be more mobile throughout the day. I feel like Evgeny and Dr. Jiwa have both relaxed and stretched out muscles I didn’t even know I had.


Dr. Jiwa’s treatments have helped me feel better overall as my body has been realigned into a proper position. Dr. Jiwa goes above and beyond for her patients and provides excellent care for her patients.

Libya Vogt

I have been a client of Dr. Jiwa’s for over ten years. After a lifetime of chronic lower back pain, she has helped me learn ways to strengthen my back, prescribed orthotics which have helped immensely, and always been able to offer relief when my back “flares up.” Thanks to her great care, those “flares” happen less often then ever.

Helga Schmidke

Farrah is very gentle and encouraging. She always explains what is “out” and what to do in between visits. She is always able to bring me to where I’m pain free so I can get on with my life. When I see Evgeny for a massage he lessens the tension in my sore areas and I always leave with my body feeling “lighter”.
