Chiropractic Journey

Dr. Whitney first became interested in chiropractic while working in the neurology department at the London Health Sciences Centre. “Patients would frequently come in to our lab and describe how chiropractic had been such a big help for them,” explains Dr. Whitney. “Somewhat skeptical, I thought that I would try it for myself,” he recalls.

“I was amazed! Everything the chiropractor explained to me made so much sense. But the best part was that not only did I quickly start to feel better, but a chronic health problem I had, which many doctors told me would never get better, totally disappeared (and it wasn’t even something that I thought chiropractic could help with!). It was at that point that I decided to become a chiropractor myself.”

Chiropractic Education

Having already graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology, Dr. Whitney was accepted into New York Chiropractic College. He moved to New York with his wife Annie, and their newborn son, Jacob in 1996. While in school in New York, they had their second son, Lucas.

Upon Graduating

Upon graduating in July 2000, Dr. Whitney went to work in a large chiropractic office in Barrie. In 2003, he opened a part time office in Orillia, which became his full time office in 2005 at it’s current location on West St.

“I have always had a passion for living and promoting health and wellbeing with as little use of drugs and surgery as possible, and our practice philosophy reflects that. The mission of our office is to humbly serve the men, women and children of our community so that every life we touch can reach it’s full God given potential. We do this by providing the highest quality chiropractic care with gentleness, thoroughness and compassion.”

When Not in the Office

When not in the office, Dr. Whitney and his family enjoy an active lifestyle. In the summer months, the whole family participates in runs and triathlons, as well as enjoying camping, hiking and swimming. During the winter months, you will frequently find them skiing and snowboarding at Horseshoe, when they are not at the hockey rink or swimming practice at the YMCA. Overall they like to practice and enjoy the healthful lifestyle that they promote in their office.
