Chiropractor in Kanata, Dr. Pierre Paradis
Looking back, it’s amazing to see how the chiropractic care I received as a teenager would have such a wonderful impact on my life years later. Especially now in my own Kanata chiropractic office.
I received my first chiropractic adjustment when I was 14 years old. I was playing contact hockey at that time and a body check during a game caused a great deal of pain in my back. As a result, my parents, who themselves were receiving chiropractic care, decided to bring me to their chiropractor, Dr. Kenneth DeHaas. I’ve always had an interest in health sciences, but ever since my first adjustment, I was drawn to the chiropractic profession. Dr. DeHaas was great; not only as a chiropractor, but also in guiding me in my decision to become a chiropractor.
I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, USA. The school came highly recommended not only from Dr. DeHaas, but also from other chiropractors which I had met. It is the fountainhead of chiropractic. Palmer has always had a strong focus on the art, science, and philosophy of chiropractic, but looking back on all my studies at Palmer, I realize that the philosophy classes were the most valuable. The principles that: healing comes from above-down inside-out, and that the
power that made the body heals the body, have been life changing.
Chiropractic Amazes Me
Dr. Paradis: Over the years, I have witnessed first-hand the healing that happens when the alignment of someone’s spine is corrected and pressure is taken off their spinal cord. You would think that you would get used to it, but I am still amazed every time it happens! This is why, to this day, our chiropractic clinic is heavily involved in the Kanata, Stittsville and Richmond communities. We want to teach people that health is not achieved by becoming dependent on medications; with a properly functioning nervous system, proper nutrition, and regular exercise, your body has everything it needs to lead a maximized life. See how chiropractic can help with other health issues.
My wife, Nathalie, and I have two beautiful children, Emmanuelle and Danik. Away from the office, I enjoy cooking (I love the Food Network), playing hockey, hiking, and our family camping trips.
My entire family and I get adjusted on a weekly basis. Along with regular exercise and proper nutrition, these have been the key factors to ensuring our optimal well-being and health.
Giving Back to the Kanata Community and Beyond
Through my chiropractic practice, I hope to serve my community with the best of my abilities, by helping them maximize their lives with chiropractic care and our wellness programs. In the process, I hope to raise awareness of the goals of our charity, Chiropractors with Compassion, dedicated to funding child-centered projects around the world.
