Dr Justin Schaeffer

Dr. Justin Schaeffer is a graduate of Life University’s College of Chiropractic in Atlanta, GA.  He graduated youngest of his class and received magna cum laude.  Dr Justin was chosen by his peers and faculty to be awarded the certificate of merit in critical thinking and learning proficiency.

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.  This means that each patient receives a customized plan for achieving their health care goals.  He uses a variety of adjusting styles including manual, instrument and drop technique as well as leading his team so that patients receive active rehabilitation, massage and more.

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.  He comes from a family of chiropractors including his father, his sister, and two uncles.
