Doctor of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College; My clinical focus is general practice with over 40 years of clinical experience. I have always been committed to remaining current in education, research, technology, and practice advancements.
Philosophy on Health:
I quote Thomas Edison who said, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will instruct his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease”. The human body has the innate and extraordinary capacity to remain healthy or regain health if it is compromised, but it takes the patient’s ongoing commitment to a healthy lifestyle which includes diet, exercise, rest, and proper mental attitude. Most importantly, the nervous system and body have to function at peak potential. This is where chiropractic care is essential for the following reasons:
The spine acts as movable protective armor for the delicate spinal cord. The spinal cord is like a nerve superhighway full of information flowing between the brain and the body;
A VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION is a dysfunctional area in the spine that negatively affects health and wellbeing due to its influence on the nervous system; and
The Chiropractic Adjustment corrects this dysfunction in order to restore healthy function of the spine and nervous system. This in turn enables the body to function at its optimal potential and greatest expression of health.
