Dr. Barry McHardy B.P.E, D.C.
I have always been fascinated by the body's potential for natural healing and its adaptation to stress and exercise. As a high school athlete, I suffered a significant neck injury while playing hockey. My family doctor was having no success in helping me recover and advised me to seek Chiropractic care.
I am forever grateful that he referred me for Chiropractic; It changed my life. Not only did I progress quickly and regain my physical health.
I also discovered how much better my spine, muscles and extremities could function and be optimized for better athletic performance.
I am a 1998 graduate of Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (Cum Laude with clinic honours) in Toronto, and honours graduate of McMaster University in 1993. I completed an advanced certificate in Medical Acupuncture in 1999.
As I approach my 20th year in clinical practice my respect for the innate healing ability of the human body only continues to grow.
My practice involves manual therapy (hands-on adjustments/stretching and mobilization) and soft tissue therapy (myofascial release). I also utilize acupuncture and various electrotherapies when appropriate (eg. laser, ultrasound, shockwave therapy).
Home exercise prescription is generally provided as well as ergonomic and posture education to help avoid and minimize strain and injury.
I am proud to have surrounded myself with health professionals who contribute their specific expertise in the management of my patients, including Physiotherapy, Registered Massage Therapy and Chiropody. They share with me a passion for helping our patients achieve their best potential in physical health.
Away from the office, I spend the majority of my time trying to keep pace with my five children.
On occasion, I still find some time for golf, skiing, wake surfing, canoeing, and fishing. I have also had the pleasure of volunteering my time as a coach in various organizations. Most recently, I have coached hockey and flag football.
