Dr. Geoff Gelley established the Gelley Chiropractic Office in 1993. His St. Vital clinic is dedicated to providing a non-surgical management of spinal pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. Dr. Gelley has undergone extensive training in primary spine care. As a primary spine care practitioner, Dr. Gelley has the knowledge and expertise to evaluate and manage the majority of patients with spine-related disorders. Dr. Gelley will refer to other healthcare practitioners for diagnostic imaging (X-rays, CT scan, and MRI) and other medical procedures when necessary and appropriate.

As a Chiropractic Sports Specialist, Dr. Gelley has completed an intensive three year post-doctoral Sports Fellowship program. This specialized program includes an academic focus in sports healthcare, practical on-field training, and other related criteria that prepare these elite doctors to serve as experts in the sports healthcare system. While all chiropractors can become a member of the RCCSS(C) by paying a yearly fee, only those chiropractors who have completed the academic requirements and passed the qualifying examinations are bestowed the title of Fellow of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences, FRCCSS(C).

This advanced professional designation has accorded Dr. Gelley specialized knowledge and skills to apply to all of his patients – from athletes to individuals of all ages. This approach integrates spinal manipulation/adjustments, Active Release Technique (ART®), acupuncture/dry needling, pain education, nutrition, and rehabilitative exercises to help his patients manage and control their pain. This integrated approach is based upon the latest research in treatment and exercise.

Wendy BroodyWendy Borody, BHEc, RD
Wendy graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Human Ecology (Nutrition) degree before completing her accredited dietetic internship at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. Over the span of her 30 year career, Wendy has worked as a Clinical Dietitian at the Health Sciences Centre and Victoria General Hospital.
Wendy has a broad range of experience including counselling adults of all ages on therapeutic diets for issues such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, and digestive disorders. She has developed and taught various lifestyle/weight management programs and counselled/coached individuals and groups.
Wendy has presented at professional conferences and many workshops for the general public and been a guest lecturer at the University of Manitoba. She has published numerous articles in the Lifestyle 55 newspaper on a variety of topics, including menopause and osteoporosis.
Wendy loves to guide people on their path to lifestyle change. She finds it very rewarding to hear people describe how positive changes (small or large) they made have helped them feel better, increased their energy, improved their medical condition, lowered the amount of medication they need (and sometimes stopped altogether), or engaged their family to work together to improve their health.
Over the past few years Wendy has developed a special interest in the nutritional care of women (of all ages) as they transition through menopause. Her expertise lies in educating women on the need for self-care and how to use lifestyle changes to help manage some of the symptoms of menopause and reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases as they age.
Wendy is a member of the College of Dietitians of Manitoba, Dietitians of Canada, and Obesity Canada.
