Discovering Chiropractic

Growing up in Calgary I was involved in a number of sports including hockey, soccer and karate. I always seemed to be plagued by recurring injuries that would never fully heal. I also experienced a lot of low back pain that seemed to come out of nowhere and stop me in my tracks.

On one occasion my low back was so bad that I had to be taken to the emergency room. The doctors checked me over and were at a loss as to what was causing me so much pain. I was actually told that nothing could be done and I had to leave with no answer and no relief. This scenario repeated itself on a few occasions where I visited a medical clinic with no relief and had to leave with deepening frustration. Why did my low back keep “giving out”? Why would the simplest of tasks leave me unable to stand up straight? Why did I feel like I was 100 years old when I got out of bed??

I finally asked my uncle, a chiropractor in Ontario, if there was something chiropractic could do for me and he referred me to a chiropractor in Calgary. It was a life changing experience because not only did chiropractic give me the relief I was looking for, it also provided me with the desire to pursue chiropractic as a career. I wanted to give the same help and relief to people struggling with frustrating and debilitating pain.

Chiropractic Education

After completing two degrees at the University of Calgary, I moved to Toronto to attend Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Upon graduating with my doctorate in 2003, I worked for two years in Mississauga and then moved back to Calgary to continue my career. I now live in Airdrie with my beautiful wife Erika.

Treating the Whole Person

If you have aches and pains and desire to have not only relief but answers to what is causing them and how it can be avoided then chiropractic is your answer. I offer treatment for a number of conditions that are both chronic and acute. I also treat the person as a whole by correcting imbalances in the body as well as the lifestyle that can be the cause of the problem. Chiropractic is not just about getting rid of pain but optimizing your health and life so you can live up to your potential and even better!

Tailored to Your Needs

I use hands on adjusting as well as activator (instrument) adjusting. I adjust to my patient’s comfort level so they can relax and rest assured that they will experience as little discomfort as possible while getting the work done. I also use a soft tissue therapy called Active Release Technique that addresses the muscles that determine how the joints are going to work. I want to go the extra mile for patients so they can get better sooner and stay better.
