DR. CHRIS GRANT
Sports Specialist Chiropractor
BSc, DC, FRCCSS(C)
I'm a sports specialist chiropractor working at The Chiropractic Clinic in Barrie and Back to Function in Orillia, Ontario. I graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Physical Education. While I was a student at Wilfrid Laurier I also played on the men’s varsity rugby team. I have continued to stay involved in the sports world as a member of South Simcoe Dufferin Track & Field Club, Barrie Rugby Club and the North York Rangers Junior A Hockey Team. I was also part of the medical team for the North American, Central American & Caribbean Track & Field Championships.
In 2016, I graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC). As one of the top students in my class, I was accepted into the Sports Sciences program at CMCC. In 2019, I became a Fellow of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (FRCCSS(C)).
I am passionate about providing excellent care for my patients and helping athletes perform at their optimal level. This is evidenced by the additional training I have completed, including Active Release Technique (ART), Contemporary Medical Acupuncture and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS). As a chiropractor, I am well trained in treating spinal complaints but I also treat a variety of athletic injuries.
SPORTS INJURY EVALUATION & TREATMENT
Getting you back to what you love
My goal is to get you back to performing at your best as quickly as possible. This starts with gaining a further understanding of the demands of your sport and what you need to perform at your best. After a thorough examination, we design an individualized treatment plan which often includes a combination of chiropractic manipulation, medical acupuncture, soft tissue therapy and rehabilitative exercises. Nothing matters more to me than your health and performance, which is why I’ve put in so much time and effort into advancing my chiropractic practice and techniques. Please get in touch to schedule an initial consultation.
SPORTS MEDICAL COVERAGE
Closer to the action!
When I'm not in the clinic I enjoy working as a first responder at local sporting events. I am certified as an Emergency First Responder with the Canadian Red Cross and have additional training in athletic and clinical taping. I have experience working with many teams and organizations including the Aurora Barbarians rugby team and North York Rangers Junior A hockey team. Please contact me if you are looking for a trainer for your team or event.
CONCUSSION ASSESSMENT & MANAGEMENT
Taking care of you
If you or your child has suffered a concussion it is important to have it managed by a health care professional. A thorough examination is required to determine the severity of your symptoms and cognitive deficits. A progressive return to play protocol will ensure a safe and timely return to sport. Contact us to book your initial examination.
MOVEMENT ANALYSIS & INJURY PREVENTION
"First move well, then move often" ~ Grey Cook
If you don't move properly you are more prone to injury. I'll perform a comprehensive movement analysis and design an exercise/treatment program to develop your movement profile. Having a basic movement competency is important for athletes of all levels and anyone starting a new exercise program. If you're an athlete who has a recurrent injury or would like to reduce the risk of injury, book an initial consultation today.
