What I do around here:
In addition to regular effective chiropractic adjustments, my treatments incorporate specific exercises, as well as open discussions with patients on how nutrition, regular exercise, stress reduction and management all contribute to a healthy and pain-free life.
I became a Chiropractor because:
I have always enjoyed helping others and wanted to help others benefit from the science, art and philosophy of chiropractic the same way it had helped me and other family members. As active teen, I experienced some debilitating back pain and went to my mother’s chiropractor, who had helped her a great deal after a serious car accident. Not only did my back pain disappear, but I had noticed other improvements such as a decrease in severe digestion problems and TMJ pain and I knew that this is what I wanted to do.
My personal philosophy is:
Laughter is the best medicine! As a Chiropractor and part time comedian, I am a firm believer in this adage and that it is actually a close second to chiropractic, but both make a tremendous difference in one’s well-being. Throughout my seventeen years in practice, I have used this balanced approach to best help patients achieve and maintain a high level of health and wellness.
What I do for fun:
Laugh and make other people laugh. I love spending time with my wife and daughter, being active and outdoors in nature as much as possible, by running, hiking, roller blading or just sitting on some grass and enjoying the sun. I am a big advocate of volunteering and community involvement and volunteer regularly with LiveWorkPlay and the Ottawa Humane Society.
