Brad Jones, DC

Dr. Jones started chiropractic care as a teenager playing hockey and found tremendous relief from back pain and sports injuries from chiropractic care. This started him on the road to becoming a chiropractor.

He attended the University of Western Ontario and received a honours degree in kinesiology and a degree in education. The Dr. Jones attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and graduated in 1997.

His practice philosophy has always been trying to move patients along the road to wellness. He gets to see positive changes in the office every day.
