Biography

Dr. Nguyen’s philosophy on chiropractic care can be attributed to his major passion for athletics, nutrition and achieving optimal performance. Dr. Nguyen obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Prior to attending CMCC, he completed an Honours degree in Kinesiology and Health Sciences at York University.

Dr. Nguyen utilizes the Functional Integrated Therapy (FIT) approach to patient assessment and treatment; integrating techniques including Medical Acupuncture, Active Release Techniques®, joint manipulation, exercise rehabilitation and shockwave therapy to treat injuries and achieve optimal performance of both recreational and elite athletes.

Most recently, Dr. Nguyen obtained the TPI certification in golf performance from the Titleist Performance Institute – specializing in improving golf-related performance, and managing golf injuries or dysfunctional physical movements that may affect golfers by using the TPI Golf Screen. The Titleist Performance Institute Golf Screen provides in-depth assessment of technique to determine if a golfer’s anatomy is prepared for an advanced game by screening for any physical limitations, connecting the limitations to swing mechanics and swing compensations, and developing a program to improve the limitations.

In practice, Dr. Nguyen has consulted athletes ranging from collegiate level runners to professional NHL players, including the St. Michael’s Buzzers hockey team. His objective is to help patients prevent injuries, recover faster and perform at the highest level without pain or discomfort.
