Greg Siren MD, CCFP, FCFP, Co-founder of CHANGEpain
Family Physician with Focused Practice in Pain Management
Dr. Greg Siren obtained his medical degree from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 1987. He is a Certificant and Fellow of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology from the University of Toronto.
Greg is very passionate about helping people and especially enjoys the challenge of treating pain symptoms that have been unresponsive to conventional medical treatment or alternative therapies. Greg uses his extensive knowledge and training in anatomy and physiology to help his patients get lasting results without drugs and with attentive care.
Greg first learned to deliver trigger point therapies while practicing medicine in Oregon. Over the years, Greg refined his understanding of trigger point therapies and developed the myoActivation trigger point injection and fascia procedures now delivered at The myo Clinic in Victoria and the CHANGEpain Clinic in Vancouver.
Before opening The myo Clinic and CHANGEpain, Greg had a full service family practice clinic in Nelson BC, then moved to the US to practice urgent care medicine and international medical consulting. Greg moved to Victoria in 2005 and continued to practice international medical consulting until founding The myo Clinic in 2010 and co-founding CHANGEpain in 2013.
Currently Greg is developing a certified training course to teach physicians, nurse practitioners and physiotherapists to deliver myoActivation, and is piloting the technique in various locations in Vancouver and Victoria.
Greg was a committee member of the General Practice Services and Specialist Services Committees’ Pain PSP System Redesign working group. Greg also served on the Board of the Victoria Division of Family Practice and as a Physician Peer Mentor and Clinical Advisory Group member at the Physician Information Technology Office.
