After 13 years of serving Sicamous

Sicamous chiropractic clinic to operate under new ownership

Dr. Cameron Grant sells Monashee Chiropractic; Dr. Claude Weichel to take over in August.

Leaving Monashee Chiropractic will be an adjustment for Dr. Cameron Grant.

After serving Sicamous for 13 years, Grant says he’s sold his Parkland Mall clinic.

Six years ago, Grant and wife Oryana took over the Aberdeen Wellness Clinic in Vernon. The following year, they moved to Vernon. But Cameron said he did not want to leave his Sicamous patients with nothing.

“I had a lot of my patients ask me if I was just going to close it,” said Cameron. “They kind of said, ‘why are you even keeping it open?’ One of the reasons I kept it open is… a lot of my patients in Sicamous can’t travel. And if I closed it, there would be nothing for them. So I didn’t want to do that, so I kind of just hung on until I could find someone to take over. I never considered closing it.”

Taking over from Cameron is Dr. Claude Weichel.

“I used to work with him in Alberta when I first graduated,” said Cameron. “He’ll be good. Lots of experience. He has a very similar treatment style to what I do. It’s going to be a smooth transition.”

Grant is hopeful Weichel will have the clinic open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Sicamous residents will have an opportunity to meet Weichel at an open house on Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. at the clinic.

Grant says he has mixed feelings about leaving Sicamous, which he says will always feel like his kids’ home.


“A lot of good stuff happened in our lives because of living in Sicamous,” said Cameron. “I met a lot of good people there. Yeah, it’s going to be sad.”
