Meet Dr. Riley Klassen

You don’t realize how important health is until you lose it. When you’ve lost your health, it affects every aspect of your life.

Dr. Riley Klassen

No Cure for Migraines

At 10 years old, after multiple injuries and falls, Dr. Klassen started developing chronic migraines. They were so severe that medications wouldn’t even touch the pain. He was missing school; grades started to slip, and had to give up sports. Nearly every aspect of his life and his family’s life was affected. Exhausted with the migraines his family was finally given a answer of hope. A CT scan would be done to figure out exactly why the migraines were there. Once they figured why the migraines were there they would go away. Except the CT results came back normal. His family was told there was no known cause to why he was having the migraines and no cure. He would have to be on these medications for the rest of his life. When the migraines got worse, he would have to increase the dosage or get on stronger medications. Frustrated and determined that there was a reason for these migraines his family searched for an answer.

An Introduction to Chiropractic

Dr. Klassen’s family was then introduced to Chiropractic by another family. After meeting with the Chiropractor, he said that he found what was causing the migraines. The process began to start to correct the cause of the migraines and to stop covering and masking the symptoms with medications. Overtime time the migraines started to dissipate and Dr. Klassen started to get his life back. He was able to participate in sports again, no longer missed days of school and grades started to improve. He even got a scholarship to play basketball in North Dakota. Dr. Klassen continues to get adjusted on a regular basis and since the day his migraines went away he has not had a single migraine! After seeing these changes in his life he decided to become a Chiropractor and dedicated his life to teaching families how to get these same amazing results in there health!

Enjoying and Supporting the St. James Community

Dr. Klassen is a relaxed, fun-loving person. He enjoys spending time in the outdoors going to his cabin, hiking, biking, fishing and snowboarding. His family is important to him, and he spends much of his spare time with them. He started volunteering while practicing in Calgary to adjust homeless people at a shelter there and does the same at the Siloam mission in Winnipeg.

Westwood Family Chiropractic runs Best Christmas Ever, a program for local families that have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own. Each year, we find a family to support and put up a giving tree in our office with notes of what the family needs for the holiday season. Our patients and community members come in, grab a note from the tree, buy the gift and leave it at our office. We bring it to the family’s house on Christmas Eve, surprising them with the best Christmas ever. We welcome you to help us support a local family every holiday season! Learn more by visiting
