Dr. Joel Simpson – Chiropractor
Dr. Joel Simpson grew up in a small town in the corner of Southwestern Ontario. It was here that he first learned the benefit chiropractic care could provide following a football injury. The benefits of chiropractic care continued to blossom in his life as his chiropractor was able to help him resolve his chronic headaches. The benefits grew deeper as care was not simply focused on the pain he was experiencing, but concentrated on improving his overall health and prevention.
Dr. Joel moved to London to study kinesiology at Western University where he began his post secondary education. It was during this time, he was awarded the opportunity to work directly with the Western Mustangs Football program and their medical staff. Dr. Joel also became a certified strength and conditioning specialist. This provided the opportunity to train people looking to improve their overall health, prevent disease and high-level athletes training for competition. After receiving his degree, he continued his education at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. It was here he received his Doctorate in Chiropractic.
Throughout his career, Dr. Joel has had the opportunity to work with many different populations. These include working with athletes recovering from a sport injury, patients’ recovering after surgery, and seniors improving their health to maintain their independence. All these experiences have allowed Dr. Joel to improve these individuals health and prevent unnecessary suffering.
Dr. Joel has additional training in many chiropractic techniques to get people back doing the things they love! He also has a special interest in helping people with their nutritional needs, supplementation, health, exercise, and wellness advice.
In his spare time, you can find Dr. Joel enjoying everything Wasaga Beach has to offer. This ranges from golfing, enjoying the world’s longest fresh water beach, and hiking the trails found throughout the County.
