Dr. David J. Matheson

Chiropractor

As children, Dr. Matheson and his siblings wondered why they never got to miss school like so many of their friends often did, claiming to be too sick to attend classes. “My dad’s answer was simple: ‘regular chiropractic treatments would keep us healthy’.” Dr. Matheson’s father taught his children the power that made the body heals the body. “He did a fantastic job of keeping all seven of us kids extremely healthy without drugs.”

“I never really thought much about being a chiropractor (like my dad, who was very well respected), because I believed I wanted to be in a career that was more ‘worldly’ than being just a local chiropractor. In 1973 I returned home after having lived and worked in British Columbia for several years, to the somewhat shocking realization that my dad, who had built a successful practice, would be retiring in a few years, without anyone to leave it to. And the perks were too good to be true – He made a good income, was his own boss, worked in clean conditions, took holidays when he wanted to, loved his work & never worried about getting a pink slip one day.”

I was born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario. I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences and graduated in 2018. I have always been very passionate about nutrition since I was very young and after having completed my BSc in Health Sciences, I was determined to further explore and specialize in the field of nutrition. This led me to pursue a Master of Science degree in Clinical Nutrition at the University of Roehampton in London, England. Eager to gain hands-on experience, I decided to extend my stay in England for an additional year.

During this time, I had the opportunity to work at Equinox, a well-known fitness and wellness organization, alongside nutritionists and personal trainers.

Once I returned home, I decided to continue my educational studies at Fanshawe College in Food Service and Nutrition Management, which gave me a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in managing and delivering nutrition services. This program equipped me with practical skills such as menu planning, food safety protocols, dietary modifications, and much more.
