My name is Tom McChesney, and I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and am originally from Ancaster Ontario. I attended York University, where I received a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree. Afterwards, I enjoyed two years in Germany playing professional basketball. Upon returning home I attended New York Chiropractic College where I was selected for a remote externship at the Buffalo Veterans Hospital. During my externship, I provided chiropractic management for a diverse group of veterans ranging from WWII to Operation Enduring Freedom.
I endorse a “patient centered” approach to the management of musculoskeletal conditions. My diverse background in chiropractic, Active Release Techniques (A.R.T), medical acupuncture, rehabilitation and sports allows me to use a multitude of therapies in the management of your condition. I have a special interest in sports injuries, pain management, low back pain and shoulder conditions and my treatments are catered to each patient’s specific needs and goals.
It has always been a goal of mine to work in the community that I grew up in. In my free time I enjoy working out and playing basketball. My wife Katie also works in the Ancaster community teaching grade three.
My philosophy is a “patient centered” approach. My ultimate goal is to help you, the patient, achieve your goal. This is accomplished through the coordination of manual therapy, patient education and health promotion. Every patient’s presentation is a unique case, and should be managed as such. Every patient’s treatment plan is customized to suite their individual functional status and presentation. It is my objective to improve your current condition, improve your functional capacity, and to prevent subsequent episodes from occurring. This paradigm is applicable for people from all walks of life, whether you are an elite athlete or an elderly individual, this individualized approach is effective for patients of all ages.
