After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo, Dr. Lee Atkinson received his Doctorate of Chiropractic (DC) degree in 1994 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He graduated on the President’s list with Cuma Sum Laude Distinction. After completion, he returned to Lloydminster where he began his practice at the Lloydminster Chiropractic Centre. Both Dr. Atkinson and his wife Shelly were raised in Lloydminster and were happy to return home and raise their family of three boys.

Dr. Atkinson strives to maintain a patient focused approach to health care. He believes that care is a process of listening to the patient and recognizing lifestyle patterns in order to find the cause of the ailment. He utilizes a variety of chiropractic techniques to locate and resolve the presenting problem. A commitment to networking with other professionals is required to ensure the patient receives the most appropriate and effective care available.

Raising three boys involved in sports has lead to an understanding and specific interest in sports injuries. Dr. Atkinson has been active in the Lloydminster sports community himself, having been a past Director and Coach in the Lloydminster Minor Hockey Association and a former Lloydminster Lancer (currently the Lloydminster Bobcats) and LCHS Football Baron. Having completed a comprehensive course in concussion management and baseline testing, he is able to perform a series of physical and cognitive tests and based on new research, provide a overview of healthy brain function. This information provides valuable information to help make safer ‘return to learn’, ‘work’ and ‘play’ decisions.

Lloydminster Chiropractic Centre welcomes new patients as well as past families. Dr. Atkinson looks forward to the challenge of helping you feel your best.

PROLOTHERAPY: Prolotherapy is an increasingly popular treatment for chronic musculoskeletal pain, Its origins can be traced back over 100 years ago. Prolotherapy involves injecting a solution into affected ligaments, tendons and/or joint spaces. While the exact mechanism of action in unknown, it is theorized that the injections cause a local inflammatory response that promote repair and healing in the surrounding soft tissue, leading to pain relief and restoration of function. Prolotherapy is being used in many clinics across North America with many reported cases of success. Animal studies and some human studies have shown promise with the treatment as well. Current research reflects that prolotherapy works best with tendinopathies (including tennis and golfer’s elbow). Prolotherapy can also play an important role in non-resolving low back pain and osteoarthritis. 3-6 treatments in a year will often solve the issue.
