Hey, I’m Dr Brad ….
And I love to help people who are struggling to regain their health – those who desperately want to be healthier and are sick and tired of the limitations and restrictions put on their lives by mediocre or poor health.
But what I really get excited about is showing people how to take care of their health and rise to new levels … so not just helping them dig out of the current hole they are in, but to help them achieve a new level of health, vibrancy, fitness and energy they never thought possible.
This passion comes from deep within me; from my own inner drive to be as healthy as I possibly can to live the longest, healthiest life that I can.
I am determined to LIVE life; not just be alive but be vibrant and healthy and active right to the end.
I am constantly studying and refining my strategies to help me fulfill the requirements I need to be healthy. And I love to share what works with my practice members.
And I don’t apply this drive to just my physical health … I want to be the best dad, son, friend, chiropractor, health coach, fitness coach, teacher and employer that I can be.
I quickly came to realize everything starts with health. “Without health, everything else is meaningless.’ unknown
I have been in the health industry for a long time – over 30 years now. And I have seen a lot of good things but also a lot of not-so-good things which continually drive me to serve the sick and suffering of all ages.
It started with a Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Toronto (biology and psychology) and a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (Toronto).
What is very unique about my approach is that I focus on postural correction. None of our body’s 11 systems (cardio-respiratory, digestive, reproductive, immune etc.) work efficiently if one’s posture system is collapsing.
And this unfortunately is an epidemic problem now that most of us interact with technology (cell phones, tablets, laptops, video games etc.) almost every single day. Technology is here to stay and the human posture system is truly collapsing at the speed of technology. And at a very early age. Kids are playing with tablets and video games and their parents cell phones by the age of 2 years old so it’s no wonder we see early signs of postural collapse by the age of 5.
This is what motivated me to join and study with the American Posture Institute. I have certifications as a Posture Expert, Postural Neurologist and a Pediatric Posture Specialist. As we interact with technology more and more, we become less and less active. Physical fitness is becoming a thing of the past and Canadian kids as young as 5 years old are now showing signs of obesity. Obesity does 2 things; it shortens your life-span and your health-span both.
This is why I am also a Personal Training Specialist with canfitpro. Physical activity and physical fitness are a large component of one’s health but any posture distortions must be taken into account before recommending an exercise plan. Every single person is unique. Thus every single care plan and exercise plan must reflect the needs of the individual person.
And along with my 30 plus years of clinical experience, what I bring to the table is something that very few others do. I also hold special certifications with canfitpro as an Active Aging Coach, Children’s Fitness Coach and Pregnancy Fitness Coach. Combining a specific postural correction care plan with a specific exercise plan yields superior results.
When I am not helping my practice members turn their lives around and achieve new levels of health, you will find me in the gym almost every single day. I also enjoy power-walking, hiking on occasion, playing softball, hanging out on the beach and in my younger years tearing up the track in an Indycar. Which I was really quite good at.
In my down time, I enjoy watching murder-mysteries, the history channel, Seinfeld re-runs, the occasional football game and Indycar racing. I enjoy live music, dining out, fine wine, cooking and take caring of my home and the yard.
And here are a few secrets about me…
I love dark chocolate especially with fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice (Yuk, right?! )
I press my own jeans.
I grew up on a peach farm in Niagara – that’s how I developed such a delicate touch. It’s a very tender fruit to pick.
And lots of people tell me I have magic hands.
