Most of us have experienced a painful bout of low back pain brought on by a seemingly innocuous movement such as bending over to pick up a pencil or a dropped set of keys. These painful episodes m ...View Article
I believe that 'normal' for you should be the best health ever. But for this to happen, your body must be able to do what it is designed and programmed to do. Your body follows the right program when the nervous system can communicate clearly with it. When subluxations cause interference, your body does it's own thing and dis-ease leads to disease.
I adjust my patient's to remove subluxations to allow the body to be able to do what it is supposed to do. Then with a body following the right program, we can begin to improve it's reserves with nutrition and strength training recommendations tailored to the individual.

Dr. Matt resides in Guelph with his son Luke. He has not authored any papers or books, nor is he a sought after international speaker but, he is a great chiropractor.
Dr. Matt's chiropractic story:
In the early 1990's, when I began university, I always thought I would go into Medicine. However, several occurrences changed my perspective.
First, in 1994 I had the opportunity to go on a medical mission to Honduras. One of my duties as a general helper was to help clean children who had scabies and lice with special detergents. After several days of this duty, when I was walking back to our camp for an evening meal I commented to one of the nurses that I felt I had really made a difference. The nurse replied that yes it was good work, and then added that it was too bad the children would be infected again soon after the mission left. This was a pivotal moment for me. It made me realize that the medical mission was a microcosm of the western medical system - reactive care as opposed to proactive care. It could fix the symptoms, but not necessarily the cause.
Also at that time I had started to see my a chiropractor to help with some low back pain I was experiencing from working in warehouses to pay for university. In the initial one-hour appointment and the one-hour follow-up report the chiropractor learned more about my health history and made more nutritional, exercise and strengthening recommendations than my family medical doctor who had known me my whole life! The Chiropractor looked at my strengths and weaknesses, what was right with my health and what was a problem and helped me set out a plan to increase my health and stave off potential future injuries. To me this was health care, it's what I wanted for my career and it's what I get to do everyday!
