Dr. Chris Grant - Sports Specialist Chiropractor
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 continue to stay involved with the sports world as a member of the medical staff for the Aurora Barbarians rugby team and the North York Rangers Junior A hockey team.
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 and became a resident of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (RCCSS).
In 2019, I graduated the CMCC Sports Sciences program and graduated the RCCSS Fellowship Examination to become a fellow of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (Canada).
I have completed additional training in Active Release Technique (ART), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) and contemporary medical acupuncture. As a chiropractor, I am well trained in treating spinal complaints, but that is not all I do. I am well trained to treat musculoskeletal conditions anywhere in the body.
My mantra is "Chiropractic Care for Athletes". I am passionate about providing excellent care for my patients and helping athletes perform at their optimal level. I view everyone as an athlete, from a professional football player to a senior citizen keeping active to maintain their independence. Evidence of this is seen in my treatment style which includes a combination of chiropractic manipulation, medical acupuncture, soft tissue therapy and rehabilitative exercises.
