About Us

The most fulfilling part of what I do is having the ability to change people’s lives and improve their health.Dr. David J. Matheson

Practicing for nearly 40 years, Dr. Matheson took over his father’s practice in Sarnia, seeking to continue his dad’s tradition of providing high quality chiropractic care to the community. With an engaging personality and wardrobe to match โ€” frequent topics of conversation in the office โ€” Dr. Matheson is a favorite of patients in Sarnia and Lambton County.

Dr. Matheson’s Mission

My mission is to change the function of the nervous system in anyone who’ll let me adjust them. I specifically want to address the epidemic affecting our children and young adults โ€“ poor posture! Poor posture produces chronic insult to developing spines (which mature by age 19) and the nervous system, which will ultimately impact their health in later years. The constant, repetitive use of digital devices (esp. cell phones, video games & tablets), decreased physical exercise and an ever increasing sedentary lifestyle are responsible in large part for the poor health of our children. Research is proving that many childhood conditions (diabetes, obesity, asthma, allergies, etc.) are related to poor posture & sedentary lifestyle. PLEASE let me at least check your kids!

Our Position in Health

We believe our human potential is unlimited, yet for most of us, extremely underutilized. We further believe that we live in a highly organized universe and that each being in that universe has a specific purpose or mission to fulfill in this life.

Studies have shown that this organizational intelligence (in the universe) is manifested in each human being as innate or “inborn” intelligence. This intelligence is the inner power that allows our body to be a self healing, self regulating, self maintaining organism. This intelligence uses our nervous system to relay its information & exert control within our physical body.

The essence of chiropractic is keeping this system free of interference, so the body and the person will have the greatest opportunity to maintain their health and wellbeing. We challenge you to accept responsibility for your health & that of your loved ones.

The Practice Philosophy

One’s quality of health and quality of life are interwoven. Patients who are truly motivated to improve their health will often see dramatic changes as their chiropractic care progresses: Energy levels go up; kids’ handwriting improves; sleep is longer and more sound; relationships improve; work is easier and less stressful; digestion and elimination stabilize; sick periods are shorter and less frequent . . . . in short, life just gets better!

Our philosophy is based on 3 undeniable, scientific truths:

  1. The body is a self healing, self maintaining and self regulating organism.
  2. The nervous system is the master control system of the body.
  3. Any interference in the functioning of the nervous system will prevent the body from realizing its highest potential.

It therefore follows, that chiropractic care helps to improve health as it removes interference to the nervous system, enhancing the expression of life energy and its tremendous potential.

If you’d like to experience improved levels of health and a better quality of life, contact us today to schedule an appointment! We’d love to give you the chance to experience natural health care at its best.
