Meet Dr. Nyman
Dr. Jason Nyman was born in Toronto, Ontario. He became interested in chiropractic following a sports injury to his foot while in high school. He was amazed when a chiropractor was able to relieve his foot pain in seconds with a simple chiropractic adjustment. Subsequent sports injuries also responded rapidly to chiropractic care. These and other factors influenced Dr. Nyman to pursue chiropractic as a profession.
