In practice, Dr. Thai has been serving the people of Surrey, as their family chiropractor, since 2005, employing a wide variety of techniques, including chiropractic adjustments, A.R.T. soft tissue therapy and Low Intensity Laser Therapy, tailored to each individual patient to provide the best care possible.
Having a desire to give back to his profession and community, Dr. Thai has also volunteered his time as a Director on the BC Chiropractic Association, the Canadian Chiropractic Association, and currently serves on the board of the Fleetwood Business Improvement Association.
In his spare time, Dr. Thai enjoys playing drums for his church worship team, and maintaining an active lifestyle of working out and running after his three young daughters.
