Get To Know Me
Nick grew up in Ancaster Ontario, playing competitive soccer, hockey, and exploring as many trails and forested areas as he could find.
He graduated with honours from the Human Kinetics program at the University of Guelph in 2013, during which time he wrestled for the Gryphons. Nick went on to earn his Doctor of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto in 2018, and subsequent education to complete his certifications in Functional Integrated Acupuncture, and Athletic Movement Assessment.
Nick is not your typical chiropractor, taking a heavy focus on active rehabilitation and recovery to supplement any therapeutic techniques he uses, which is why he’s such a good fit here at CONNECT.
"Active interventions for active results. Proper recovery needs to look at correcting the faulty movement mechanics or loading patterns that are causing stress and injury to tissues in the first place, and the only way to do that is to watch people move, correct those movements, and get them to keep moving properly.”
He loves working with those looking to get back to activity following an injury, people looking to improve their quality of life through movement and exercise, as well as individuals looking for tips and strategies to prevent injury and maximize performance in their day-to-day lives, occupations and recreational activities.
In his first year in Owen Sound Nick has become involved in the community, participating in a number of educational outreaches, training the Midget Northstars lacrosse team, and playing for OS United Soccer Club. An outdoorsman at heart, when not helping his patients, Nick can often be found (or not found at all) at the cottage, fishing, camping, or hiking any number of the trails or rivers with his two dogs Django and Hugo, and his wife, Miranda.
WHAT NICKS'S CLIENTS
“Dr. Nick was very clear about each step in the assessment, and had enough pauses in case I had any questions.
He gave me some simple steps to gain confidence with some ordinary movements. I like/need the slow and steady approach right now.”
Nick's Specialty Services
Adjustment & Manual Therapy
Hands-on treatment designed to reduce pain and create an opportunity to get you moving towards your goals.
If adjustment isn't your cup of tea, ask Dr. Nick about gentler forms of manual therapy that may be more suitable for you.
Involves using small needles to target specific muscles, nerves, and soft tissues in order to reduce pain. Can be used alone or in conjunction with manual therapy as a part of your treatment plan to create an opportunity to get you moving towards your goals.
No CONNECT visit is complete without your take-home program that helps manage symptoms and move you towards your goals.
We believe active rehab is a key component of successful treatment for everyone.
When you need a little extra support because your job involves prolonged standing and walking, or due to persistent foot pain, orthotics can be a useful part of your treatment plan.
To find out if this is right for you, or to have your old orthotics updated, discuss your options with Dr. Nick in a free consultation
