Oakville’s most experienced chiropractor!
Dr. David Healey, D.C

Prior to chiropractic college, he earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University, in Kingston, and attended University of Toronto Law School for two years. Midway through his second year at law school, he realized that his own health had improved a great deal as a result of regular chiropractic care, and he decided to make a fundamental shift in career plans to become a chiropractor.Dr. Healey established his first practice in Toronto in 1976, and began a second in Mississauga in 1984. By 1986 he had sold both of these practices and established Upper Oakville Chiropractic, in Oakville, where he currently practices.

He earned his Advanced Proficient Rating in Activator Methods in 1993. He also uses the Thompson Terminal Point Technique, and Diversified adjusting methods.

Dr Healey regularly attends post-graduate seminars and workshops to keep abreast of new developments in his profession. Early in his chiropractic career, Dr Healey realized that his primary role as a chiropractor is to release the tremendous potential for health and healing that exists within the human body.
Dr. Healey, and his wife Kathy, have lived in Oakville since 1985 and have four children. They feel very fortunate to be able to live and work in the same vibrant and welcoming community.
