PATRICK KIRKHAM D.C.
Dr. Patrick Kirkham D.C. joined Britannia Chiropractic Clinic Clinic in 2008, replacing Dr. Carole Ouellette D.C. after her move back to New Brunswick. He is a familiar presence at the clinic after his past work as a locum for the chiropractors of BCC. Dr. Kirkham D.C. was raised in Chelmsford, a small town outside of Sudbury, ON.
He has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Waterloo (1992) and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto in 1996. He is married to Kyla and they have 4 children; Gabriel, Isaiah, Adam, and Camille.
From a young age, health and wellness have been important for Dr. Kirkham D.C. His first experience with chiropractic was at the age of 13 when severe knee pain started to affect his walking and running. His track and field coach brought him to his chiropractor who found subluxations in his spine and pelvis that were affecting the way he walked. After having these subluxations corrected, Dr. Kirkham D.C. went on to be successful in track, volleyball, and hockey, competing throughout high school and university. He still pursues an active lifestyle with interests in running, hockey, and general fitness and believes that this, combined with a healthy diet, positive attitude, and chiropractic care is essential to great health.
Dr. Kirkham D.C. brings this philosophy to his practice with a natural, wellness-oriented approach: spinal evaluations, orthotic assessments and advice on nutrition and lifestyle are key to his practice. He utilizes different techniques, including traditional chiropractic adjustments as well as post-graduate training in cranial adjusting (which helps to resolve head trauma from accidents, birth, etc.) and Webster’s technique (which helps to minimize pelvic misalignments in pregnancy). Family and community care are a strong focus of Dr. Kirkham D.C., with particular areas of interest in athletic performance, workplace performance, posture evaluation, and prenatal and pediatric care.
Dr. Kirkham D.C. is a member of the College of Chiropractors of Ontario, the Ontario Chiropractic Association, the Canadian Chiropractic Association, and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
He is available to speak at lunch and learns, and groups and organizations about the benefits of chiropractic. Please contact the clinic for more information.
