About Dr. Day

Dr. Jessica Day a native of Barrie Ontario, received her Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, New York and her Master's of Science In Applied Clinical Nutrition from North East College of Health Sciences in Seneca Falls, New York. She is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, is certified in Webster Technique and is currently working towards completing her Fellowship in pediatrics.

At a young age Dr. Day knew she wanted to pursue a career in the medical field and that she had a passion for helping others. Through her love of sports, she became more interested with how amazing the human body can be. However, it wasn't until she was working with individuals with traumatic brain injuries and children with autism that she knew Chiropractic was her calling. Throughout her Chiropractic studies, Dr. Day developed a new interest in perinatal and pediatrics care. She strives to be an advocate for this population while helping close a gap in our current healthcare system.

When not in the clinic Dr. Day can be found volunteering within the community and is actively involved with the Barrie South Lions Club. She can also be found hiking and exploring with her friends and family and spending her Saturdays at the rugby field.

Chiropractic Therapy

Chiropractic is an evidence-informed, non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system.

Chiropractors practice primarily using their hands, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a history, performing an examination and establishing a diagnosis, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

One of the most common therapies a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), which can comprise a variety of adjustment techniques. Specific training in SMT allows chiropractors to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.

For many conditions, such as low back pain, chiropractic care is the primary method of treatment. When a multi-disciplinary approach is advisable, a chiropractor will coordinate care with other health care professionals. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical or other treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions such as _________________.
