The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease.
Dr. Dodie Elkins joined the community of Seeley’s Bay in January, 2001. Her mission is to provide the highest quality of chiropractic care and to inspire the community to live in optimal health and wellness. It is a pleasure to be apart of such a welcoming community.
Chiropractic is a natural, drugless, hands on approach to health care. The goal of chiropractic care is to correct the vertebral subluxation complex – which arises when your joints, particularly those of the spine, are not moving properly.
Your spine protects your nervous system and it is this system that determines how you feel mentally, emotionally and physically. An overworked or stressed nervous system can cause symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, muscle pain and a host of other unpleasant symptoms which can become more serious as time passes.
Treatment incorporates chiropractic “adjustments”. These adjustments help return your spine to optimum health by restoring and maintaining nerve and joint function. Treatment may also include nutritional changes, stretching and strengthening exercises, and custom foot orthotics.
This means that you can enjoy full expression of your health and enjoyment of life!
A chiropractic examination will evaluate the health of your muscles, joints and nervous system. It will then be determined what approach to care is best for you.
I have had a passion for chiropractic that started in grade 7, after shadowing a chiropractor for a school project. With a clear goal in mind I completed my Bachelor of Science at University of Guelph in 1996. I pursued my Doctor of Chiropractic studies at the National College of Chiropractic in Illinois, from which I graduated in 2000. My career started as an associate in Gananaque and have since established a family practice in Seeley’s Bay, Ontario since 2001.
I offer a warm friendly approach to care using a variety of techniques including Diversified, Thompson, Activator, NET, Integrator and SOT. Following a complete initial examination I determine what approach to care best suits an individual.
Certified to practice the Webster In-Utero Constraint Technique, I love working with families of all ages – including children and pregnant women to help everyone experience and maintain their optimal health.
Playing many roles in my life, I am a wife, mom, chiropractor, friend, athlete, and coach. I enjoy hiking, exercise, skiing, curling, continued learning, speaking, travel, and spending quality time with family. My Passion is helping others regain their health, and live their most ideal life,
My Health is extremely important to me. Whether it is keeping up with my girls or working in the garden or on the farm, I want to keep doing what I love.
Chiropractic Care has been a part of regular health care for myself and my teenage daughters for many years. It keeps our bodies functioning properly and our immune systems strong. Increased performance in sport and faster healing and recovery time are another great benefit.
I have been the first smiling face you see when you come into Seeley’s Bay Family Chiropractic for over 10 years now. Once of my strengths is being organized, which allows me to guide patients through their care and help keep them on schedule to achieve optimal health and wellness.
If you don’t have your health, life can be very challenging! I will keep getting adjusted so I can keep doing what I love!
