about us

At Aligned Chiropractic & Family Health Center we understand health is our most valuable possession. Our goal is to partner with you to help you achieve optimal health now and in to the future. We know healthcare doesn’t end when you leave our office, so we do our best to support healthy lifestyle by providing nutritional workshops, workout classes and events for our community and their families.

It is our experience that pain is often an indicator of greater health concern, that is why we look to correct the source of most musculoskeletal pain through state-of-the-art spinal correction and rehabilitative techniques, namely Chiropractic Biophysics. Headaches, neck pain and back pain are often relieved by restoring the spine’s normal curvature and alignment, allowing for greater function and healing capacity of the body by removing damaging tension on nerves.

Each individual at Aligned Chiropractic is treated as such, an individual! Therefore, we provide tailored care and rehabilitation specific to your current health status and future health goals. Whether you are dealing with scoliosis, back pain or would just like to improve in health and longevity, our doctors and staff are hear to serve you!

Dr. Brian Banman

brian-bio-photoDr. Brian’s first experience with Chiropractic care was while he was still playing basketball at the collegiate level. Having suffered through some major back and knee injuries, in which surgery was recommended and his future basketball career questioned, he chose to pursue the help and advice of his older brother Mike who had recently become a Chiropractor himself. Gaining more of an understanding on how the body was created to heal itself, Dr. Brian chose to avoid surgery and let his body do the work. The result was Dr. Brian was able to go beyond the expectations of a limited college career and continue playing basketball professionally.

After attending Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Brian was offered the rare opportunity to further his training with Dr. Deed Harrison and his team at IdealSpine Health Center, North America’s premier spinal corrective center.  His experience there would be invaluable as he learned how to care for complex spinal conditions, such as scoliosis, using Chiropractic Biophysics and the latest evidence-based rehabilitation techniques.

Due to their desire to live life surrounded by family, Dr. Brian and his wife Meghan decided to move back to Kelowna and serve the Okanagan Valley by partnering with Dr. Mike, the man who inspired him to become a chiropractor.  Motivated by his passion to share the powerful principles of health and healing, Dr. Brian is excited to see his community transformed as we begin to see more healing occur from the inside – out.

During down time, he enjoys coaching kids basektball, participating in almost any sport, and spending time with family and friends.
