Dr. Derek Brown was born and raised in Nanaimo British Columbia where he participated in a wide range of youth sports including soccer, baseball, tennis, and hockey. His hockey career culminated with 3-years as starting goaltender for the Oceanside Generals Jr. B Hockey Club. Dr. Brown went on to spend 5-years studying Kinesiology between Vancouver Island University and the University of Victoria, and a further 4 years earning his Doctor of Chiropractic designation from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.

A multidisciplinary approach to care is best able to meet the varying needs of the modern patient, and Dr. Brown is happy to be a part of such a team at Woodgrove Pines Clinic. His personal approach includes addressing muscle tension with various hands-on soft tissue therapies, adjusting to restore normal joint mobility where appropriate, and providing personalized exercise and stretching recommendations to help maintain the benefits of the treatment. Dr. Brown firmly believes that Chiropractic care is the ideal approach to maintain the musculoskeletal integrity of the body, and to allow individuals to get out and enjoy their active island lifestyles. Dr. Brown is currently planting deep roots in Nanaimo alongside his wife and daughter. He remains an avid sport and outdoor enthusiast, and is actively involved in the local hockey scene. Dr. Brown could not be more excited to now be giving back to the community that has provided him with so much.
