Dr. Michael Kennedy BSc., Licensed Chiropractor
Dr. Kennedy grew up in the Kitchener-Waterloo area where he was very active in sports joining the football, basketball, badminton and ski teams during high school. After completing his Secondary School Diploma as an Ontario Scholar, he attended the University of Western Ontario and completed his degree in Physiology. During this time his father sought out a chiropractor for a degenerative hip condition and this exposure to chiropractic led Dr. Kennedy to apply to Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. Dr. Kennedy was extremely interested in Chiropractic’s natural approach to health care using the innate healing abilities of the body to balance the nervous system without the use of drugs or surgery.
After being accepted into CMCC in 1986, he completed the 4-year program and graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1990. He began his career as an associate doctor at Shoppers World Mall in Brampton; and in 1993 he purchased the practice and became clinic director. He has run a family practice for the last 32 years in Brampton. Since 2004 Dr. Kennedy has been the Chief Examiner for Ontario for the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board responsible for the practical licensing exams run three times a year in Hamilton. For the past 9 years Dr. Kennedy has been a peer assessor for the College of Chiropractors of Ontario, conducting assessments of colleagues as part of the quality assurance and self-regulatory body of the College. Dr. Kennedy treats a wide variety of patients and conditions including athletes, seniors, children and pregnant women. In his spare time, he enjoys racquetball, squash, skiing and golf.
