Benjamin Matheson – BKin Hons, DC

Registered Chiropractor

Whenever I am asked why I wanted to become a chiropractor, my answer is always the same. I want to be the person that people in my community count on when they are in pain. Through my six plus years of practice (Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College class of 2011), I have come to dub myself a “results-based chiropractor”. I use this term because there are many ways to approach chiropractic care. A focus on best outcomes for those who rely upon me, has led me to seek out different types of strategies and provided me with a very person-centred approach to care.

While I often say that my strongest clinical tool is my ability to listen, treatment strategies that I often use include: hands on treatment in the form of joint mobilization and manipulation and soft tissue manipulation, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (Graston Technique), exercise, and advise. I have recently become a certified practitioner in Complete Concussion Management. A well rounded and cooperative approach to care that involves several dimensions is key to optimal outcomes.

I am often asked about my recommendations chiropractic care when there is no pain or complaint. While chiropractic treatments can provide a sense of improved movement or less tension, not every person needs ongoing care. Some folks with busy work schedules, active lifestyles, history of injury and pain, or a combination of any of the above find that a regular treatment can help to keep them active and comfortable meeting the demands of life. I am happy to provide care in these cases.

I prefer the schedule of care to be informed by the person who receives the care and when there is an opportunity to decrease the need for care, we will always seize that opportunity.

I have had the pleasure of working in environments with medical doctors, massage therapists, kinesiologists, and other chiropractors. I find that all professions have something to offer in many cases and I do my best to incorporate the expertise of others to optimize results in any case.

  • FAKTR PM Level 1
  • Extremity Adjusting Seminar – Hip, Knee, Foot and Shoulder • Sport Coach Certification: Track and Field, Special Olympics •  Pro Health Systems IASTM introduction •  CPR-C AED •  Complete Concussion Management Practitioner Course

I am very excited to be working in the Westboro neighbourhood of Ottawa and look forward being a person on whom you can rely for any problems that might be causing you pain, stiffness, or decreased movement.
