Thunder Bay Chiropractor Dr. James DiGiuseppe

“I really had no idea what chiropractic was about. The only thing I knew was that my mother had been visiting a chiropractor for years which prevented her from requiring back surgery.”

“As a child, I knew that I wanted to do something in my life that included the biological sciences. As a teenager, I was athletic and I became very interested in the workings and performance of the human body. It was after my experiences with two sports injuries and observing firsthand the health-care workers around me that I knew I would devote my life to helping people improve their health. I was a big fan of natural healing practices and I wanted to learn more about how I could be part of that.”

Dr. DiGiuseppe began his pre-chiropractic education at the University of Toronto where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology. He was accepted to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto, where he then earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After graduating in 1995, Dr. DiGiuseppe returned to Thunder Bay to establish his practice. He was president of the Thunder Bay Chiropractic Society for six years and has been asked to speak to numerous groups & organizations including WSIB, local industries, schools and clubs.

“There can often be fear due to misinformation about chiropractic. People are often concerned and apprehensive on their first visit. So, in our office we make it a priority to answer all of your questions and to explain everything in advance in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Our patients really appreciate the thoroughness and professionalism that we provide.”

Away from Port Arthur Chiropractic Centre

Dr. DiGiuseppe and his wife Kathy have three sons, Dante, Julian and Matteo. He and his wife had made a conscious and informed decision early on to make natural and healthy living choices a priority for their family. Dr. DiGiuseppe spends his time away from the office volunteering on a soccer club board and also with charitable organizations.

Dr. DiGiuseppe goes for weekly chiropractic care to ensure his nervous system is fine tuned and to keep him happy and healthy. Other important health lifestyle cornerstones that Dr. DiGiuseppe follows are regular exercises like: walking, jogging, swimming, hockey and cross country skiing; eating mostly wholesome, homemade foods, and hobbies such as gardening.

“I am continuously looking to improve myself physically, mentally, and spiritually to grow as a human being and as an example to my family and community.”

“I believe that everyone has the right to have good health and happiness. Chiropractic care is a core prerequisite to good health and I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the positive impact chiropractic can have on them and their family’s life and vitality.”
