Dr. Aaron Todd, Chiropractor – Clinic Owner

Dr. Aaron ToddTo be able to compete at such an elite level in Canada and the United States, Dr. Todd needed to be injury-free. “I received my first adjustment after a neck injury during a football game. The hit was so severe that I worried about finishing up the rest of the season. However, after a few adjustments from our team chiropractor, I was cleared up and ready to play the following weekend.”

From that moment forward, Dr. Todd realized the importance of not only seeing a chiropractor after an injury but also following through with a schedule of care to maintain the integrity of his spine and nerve system. Doing so allowed him to attain his peak performance. It was after this incident that he began to read and study as much as he could about chiropractic and sports.

After finishing his studies at the University of Saskatchewan, Dr. Todd was honoured to be accepted into what many people feel is the “Harvard of chiropractic schools” — Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

Dr. Amanda Tulk, Chiropractor – Clinic Owner

Dr. Amanda TulkDr. Tulk had always wanted to work in the health field, but wasn’t sure which avenue she would pursue. She was first introduced to chiropractic as a teenager when her best friend was in a bad car accident. The car was a write-off, and her friend was badly injured. “She would hardly walk on her own, let alone drive a car. So, I drove her to her chiropractor appointments. Her chiropractor was great. He explained everything that was going on with her spine and nerve system, and made sure we understood her treatment plan in advance.”

It took some time for Dr. Tulk’s friend to recover, but she responded well to her adjustments and eventually made a full recovery. You wouldn’t know to look at her now, that she was once so incapacitated. “I couldn’t believe what I had experienced! I was amazed and very grateful to this chiropractor.”

To have seen this improvement in a person’s quality of life each step of the way was enough to convince Dr. Tulk that she had found the profession she was looking for.

Lisa discovered how movement can heal and became empowered to share her learnings.
