Dr. David Tysdale has worked in health and education for over 40 years. In addition to his 23 years as a chiropractor, he has taught primary and post-secondary level programs, and worked in family counseling and pre-hospital emergency medicine. His approach to healthcare is to use whatever works. Sometimes that means hands-on adjustive techniques and sometimes that means hands-off energy methods. Since every individual is unique, every treatment is unique.
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts specializing in the correction of bio-mechanical disorders involving nerves, joints and muscles. Chiropractors use spinal manipulative therapy (an adjustment) as their primary tool to reduce pain and normalize body function. Chiropractic therapy often has profound and far reaching effects on an individual’s overall health and well-being. This is because the nervous system coordinates and controls all bodily activity, and the chiropractic adjustment works to optimize nerve function.
Energy Medicine is a blossoming field that seeks to integrate traditional practices with modern understanding. Dr. Tysdale’s approach is to combine manual procedures with energy techniques, Applied Kinesiology, electronic acupuncture and percussive modalities, in order to normalize the body’s various systems, thereby reducing stress and increasing well-being.
