Dr. AJ Pacis always knew he wanted to be a health care practitioner. In his final year studying Kinesiology at York University, he was introduced to the wonders of chiropractic care. After regular adjustments for his chronic back pain, he fell in love with the hands-on, manual approach to health care, and moved on to achieve his Doctorate of Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.
Dr. AJ has learned a number of techniques and will take the time to listen to each patient’s needs and goals in order to recommend a treatment plan that best suits them. He also takes opportunities to learn new skills and approaches to chiropractic care to accommodate a variety of populations, from children to the elderly.
Dr. AJ has spent almost all his life in Mississauga. When he isn’t treating patients, he loves playing basketball and volleyball on a regular basis. He has also volunteered on mission trips to the Philippines to provide chiropractic care in remote areas devastated by natural disasters.
