Dr. Matthew Phinney
Dr. Phinney happened on a career in healthcare while he was training and playing rugby with the Canadian National team. While on a rugby tour to New Zealand, he injured two discs in his neck during a match. The damage was so severe he was ruled out of any competition by team Doctors, and told that his career as a rugby player was essentially over. The limited ability of conventional medicine to understand and treat his injury left a strong impression on him. It wasn’t until he returned to his home in Victoria, BC that a chiropractor was able to help him, restore function in his body, and get him back into competition. It was then Dr. Phinney decided to pursue a career in healthcare.
Having trained and competed as a professional rugby player at a National and International level, Dr. Phinney is very familiar with what is required in terms of EATING BETTER, MOVING BETTER and THINKING BETER to perform consistently at the highest level. He has taken his experience and training as an ELITE level athlete and applied those principles to the CORPORATE and OCCUPATIONAL athletes that he works with.
Dr. Phinney has committed himself to lifelong learning, he continues to read, take seminars and pursue clinical excellence by keeping up with any information that might be helpful to his patients and give them that winning edge when it comes to their HEALTH and their LIFE. Dr. Phinney is dedicated to helping any and all businesses, organizations and groups in the community experience improved HEALTH, VITALITY, PRODUCTIVITY and PERFORMANCE. His love of all people and genuine concern for others drive his pursuit of excellence in his work as well as his service to the community.
“Chiropractic care is not just for eliminating pain, it is important for on-going preventative and wellness care, and it is effective for people of all ages – from infants to elderly.”
