Dr. Jarett Terlesky - Chiropractor  Accredited A.R.T. Provider 


Dr. Jarett Terlesky has been providing chiropractic care to Calgary’s Downtown and Beltline communities for over 27 years. A 1996 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, he continued his studies at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1999 completing his Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner program.


Our patient base is diverse. Dr. Terlesky has a strong family practice focusing on health and wellness. He enjoys treating patients from all walks of life. Having the opportunity to effect change in a persons health is a privilege he does not take lightly. Providing an affordable effective health care solution to individuals and families of all ages is what has made us a fixture in the community for over 27 years.

Dr. Terlesky utilizes a variety of chiropractic techniques including hands on (Diversified & Gonstead), drop table (Thompson), instrument adjusting (Activator/Impulse), extremity adjusting, Cranial Sacral Techniques (S.O.T.), Active Release Techniques (ART) and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM) for dealing with soft tissue injuries.


During his career in practice he has had the opportunity to give back to his profession by volunteering numerous hours with both the Alberta Provincial and Canadian Chiropractic Examining Boards. He is proud to have held the positions of Chief Examiner for the C.C.E.B. Practical Clinical Skills Examination and Chief Chiropractic Resource Officer  for the C.C.E.B. Cognitive Skills Examination. 

In 2003 Dr. Terlesky attained his certification in Active Release Techniques and is considered a certified A.R.T. Doc. To maintain A.R.T. accreditation providers must attend at least one A.R.T. course and recertify each year. In keeping up with the evolution of Active Release Techniques Dr. Terlesky was one of the first group of pracitioners to complete the newly developed A.R.T. Complex Protocols Certification now known as level 2. 

Dr. Terlesky’s A.R.T. certification includes:

  • Accredited A.R.T. Provider Since 2003

  • Full Spine Levels 1 & 2

  • Upper Extremity

  • Lower Extremity Levels 1 & 2

To complement the use of hands on chiropractic care and active release techniques soft tissue therapy, Dr. Terlesky introduced Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy to Calgary in 2008 for it’s ability to stimulate/accelerate healing and modulate pain.

Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is a painless modality that helps stimulate/accelerate healing at a cellular level to tissues that have been injured/stagnant/dysfunctional. The technology of Deep Tissue Laser Therapy continues to grow and with it the applications have expanded. Due to its successful outcomes, Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy is much more common now than in 2008. We are proud to have been a pioneering entity in bringing this modality to Alberta.

In keeping up with the recent trends in care, Dr. Terlesky recently became certified in Functional Movement Techniques (F.M.T.) and Rocktape Kinesiotaping. 


In assessing each patient, Dr. Terlesky, will address the individual patient’s needs and comfort level in selecting the care most appropriate for each patient and their condition.
