My chiropractic journey began before I can even remember: my mother received care from a chiropractor when I was still in the womb, which helped her deliver me, large baby, with little difficulty. It wouldn’t be until a few years later that chiropractic entered my life again.
I was nine or 10 years old when I began suffering from leg pains, which were quite severe at night. The medical treatment consisted of wrapping my legs in pressure bandages and then wearing prescription therapeutic shoes. They were nothing like what the other kids were wearing, and I remember receiving a lot of teasing about them! When all this therapy failed to help, my mother decided to take me to visit the chiropractor. Adjustments to my pelvis began to allow these awful pains to recede, and I became a normal kid again.
In later years, I saw the chiropractor for various sports injuries and felt the treatment helped me heal more quickly. When it came time to decide what I wanted to do with my life, I recalled the help I had received from the Chiropractor. With this in mind, I applied to Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. Upon graduation in 1976, I moved to Belleville, Ontario, and set up practice, eventually running a large multi-doctor clinic with my brother. After 27 years there, I made the move to the “Island” and set up practice in Victoria.
I feel very fortunate to have been involved with so many patients over the past years of practice. The body’s innate wisdom and ability to heal itself is truly miraculous. This is why I can smile when patients discover that not only are they pain free, but also that many other body functions have improved as well. I love being a chiropractor as much today as when I first started practice 40 years ago. I still regularly attend postgraduate courses and workshops to stay current. I love treating all patients.
