Meet Dr. Matthew Bortolussi

Chiropractor Dr. Matthew Bortolussi loves that his job is to assist people with their healing and leading them to a healthier life with a gentle and natural approach that’s really simple and elegant, when you get down to it.

Changing Course to Chiropractic

Dr. Matthew headshotDr. Matthew was an undergraduate at the University of Western Ontario, studying physiology, on his way to medical school, when he made the decision to change his career to chiropractic. He worked summers for a specialist in internal medicine assisting with his research, and noticed the patient files all had a similar approach.

Patients would come in with the same condition and receive the same medication year after year. It seemed to Dr. Matthew that the doctor was just managing the downward slide of his patients, instead of finding ways to make them better. Their futures looked hopeless, destined to continue to suffer. He didn’t see how this model of a career in medicine could prove fulfilling for him.

That’s when a friend suggested chiropractic to Dr. Matthew. He started to look into it, and the more he investigated, the more he liked the big ideas and premise, because it simply made sense. Chiropractic was about giving people hope and finding ways to make their lives better. The concept resonated with him, and he received his Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 2004.
