DC, Chiropractor, Acupuncture Practitioner, Clinic Owner and Director
Dr. Patterson had been introduced to chiropractic at a young age as his father received chiropractic care to treat a rare arthritic disease and benefited first hand from chiropractic care throughout his athletic career. Dr. Todd enrolled at New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) where he excelled and was named to the dean’s list throughout his program and was awarded a number of scholarships. He was trained in diversified, Cox technique and pursued further training to become certified in Active Release Technique (ART) and in acupuncture through the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Programme.
In spite of the demanding academic schedule at NYCC, Dr. Todd was an executive member of the Sports Science and Human Performance Club. This club was responsible for organizing and providing chiropractic care to athletes in local and international events. Such events included the 2000 US Olympic 5Km Prequalifiers.
Upon graduating from NYCC, Dr. Todd was hired by the largest clinical group in Massachusetts and was quickly promoted to the flagship clinic. Within this setting, he gained invaluable experience working in a multidisciplinary clinic alongside orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists. Though Dr. Todd found this position to be highly rewarding and educational, it was always his dream to return to Canada and open a multi-disciplinary clinic of his own.
Complete Wellness Clinic Guelph was founded in 2005 and has been steadily growing while providing quality care to the Guelph community. Dr. Patterson held a position at Medix College for 3 years teaching anatomy, physiology and pathology within the massage therapy programme. For 4 years, Dr. Patterson held the position of team doctor with the Junior B Guelph hockey team (Dominators and Hurricanes) where he treated a variety of sports injuries throughout the season. A dedicated father of two young children, Dr. Patterson continues to grow both professionally and personally and continues to thoroughly enjoy having the privilege of treating members of the Guelph community with individualized, quality care.
