Dr Justin Schaeffer

Dr. Justin Schaeffer graduated from Life University’s College of Chiropractic in Atlanta, GA in 2011.  He graduated the youngest of his class, received magna cum laude, was accepted into the Pi Tau Delta International Chiropractic Honor Society for superior scholastic standing, and was awarded the Certificate of Merit in critical thinking and learning proficiency by his peers.

He takes a patient-centered, evidence-based, and analytical approach to each patient he sees. His objective is as much directed towards figuring out the cause of the problem and solution as it is to find out what goal the patient wants to achieve so that each patient receives a customized plan for achieving their health care goals.  While he personally focuses on adjusting as his core proficiency, using variety of adjusting styles including manual, instrument, and drop technique, he also believes strongly in a team-based, multidisciplinary approach to treatment that may include active rehabilitation, massage, or other modalities.

Dr. Schaeffer is a husband, father, and downtown lifestyle enthusiast, frequently taking walks with his young family to enjoy the sights, sounds, and many activities of downtown Winnipeg.
