ABOUT DR. SCOTT
Dr. Scott’s journey into Chiropractic began when he was a young boy growing up in his parents’ Chiropractic clinic. Both of his parents are successful Chiropractors and Naturopaths (Since 1962). While growing up, he and his brothers were raised completely free of medications–it wasn’t an option (not even Tylenol). His parents taught him that true health comes from within and can be maintained though consistent healthy lifestyle habits. Upon hearing stories from patients about the incredible changes that people had experienced while under chiropractic care, he made the decision at five years of age that he was also going to be a chiropractor.
In the fall of 1992, Dr. Scott began his Chiropractic education at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, in Toronto, Ontario. It was here that Dr. Scott developed his passion for educating patients on the transformative powers of living the chiropractic lifestyle, and earned his qualifications to care for patients. Four years later, he founded Scott Family Chiropractic in his home town of Woodbridge, ON.
His focus has remained the same for over 25 years of practice: to optimize the healing power of each and every patient through optimal function of the nervous system. Throughout his many years of practice, Dr. Scott has helped many children and families heal, grow, and stay healthy together. In more recent years, Dr. Scott has developed a passion for helping patients who are suffering from concussions and other related brain injuries. Over the years Dr. Scott has pursued additional education and training in Pediatric Chiropractic, Prenatal Chiropractic, and Functional Neurology and Concussion Recovery. Dr. Scott utilizes cutting-edge techniques and methods to help each and every patient, regardless of their age or pre-existing conditions, reach their optimal level of health.
Teaching people about the amazing healing potential that they have within them is the primary focus of many of Dr. Scott’s standingroom- available-only workshops that he provides to the community on a wide array of health topics. A core component to his tremendous success, was his ability to empower his patients and teach them how to live a healthier lifestyle. Dr. Scott teaches his patients about how health challenges often emerge, and then works to coach them through steps necessary to reach and maintain their health goals.
He often can be quoted as reflecting on how he is "blessed to take care of the most wonderful patients in the world". Dr. Scott’s ability to provide excellent health care to his patients is reflected in the numerous awards his patients selected him for over the years, including, THE TOP CHOICE AWARD, THE READER’S CHOICE AWARD, THE TOP THREE IN VAUGHAN AWARD, and THE CONSUMER’S CHOICE AWARD.
Another passion of Dr. Scott’s is mentoring and inspiring young chiropractors. Over 20 of Dr Scott’s patients have chosen to follow in his footsteps and become Doctors of Chiropractic themselves. Two of his three grown children and their partners are also on route to becoming Chiropractors themselves.
Having spent much of his youth on Georgian Bay and having a small town heart, in 2018 he decided to move his practice out of the ever-expanding city and continue his journey of empowering families to live healthier in the beautiful town of Midland, Ontario.
Dr. Andrew and his wife, Andrea, have three grown children that they raised drug-free through the chiropractic lifestyle. All three children were delivered naturally, checked for subluxations at birth, and continue to receive chiropractic care on a regular basis. He teaches families about living a healthy, natural lifestyle by first living it himself. Both of Dr. Scott’s parents are still continuing to serve patients, even as they are well into their 80’s. Dr. Scott intends to do the same. His passion for helping people is just getting started.
Dr. Andrew believes that educated patients are healthy patients. If you have questions or concerns about your family’s health, get involved in our free community workshops or book a consultation with Dr. Scott.
A MESSAGE FROM DR SCOTT
Since I began practicing Chiropractic, I have been on a mission to promote natural health and wellness to people of all ages and all backgrounds so that they can enjoy their life to the fullest. When you visit us, it would not be unusual to see three (and on occasion four!) generations of a family heading off together for their adjustments. That's because, at Scott Family Chiropractic, Chiropractic is a family affair! We want all the families in our community to be healthy together. Wellness empowers families to live better and happier lives. In fact, we have created affordable family care plans that allow patients to achieve and maintain their wellness goals. We also provide the health information and encouragement needed to do so.
Far too many people in our culture today, regrettably, when they experience a health challenge, reach for a pill or some form of medication, and ignore the underlying life-style problems that might be causing them in the first place. Doctors often are too busy to educate their patients about these life-style issues and as a result rely on prescriptions to alleviate symptoms. This approach ignores the natural healing abilities our bodies were equipped with. I feel our facility is quite unique because of the philosophy that we share with each patient; focusing on the entire person and their lifestyle choices as well.
So many ailments and health challenges slow us down or even keep us from achieving our goals altogether, but it doesn't have to be that way. We take a full-body, comprehensive approach that will help support you with all of your health and wellness issues and needs. Over the years we've observed patients healing themselves of headaches, numbness, chronic back pain, blood pressure challenges, allergies, infections, digestion issues, ailments like Menieres disease and vertigo, through whole body wellness care. And the best part is, not only do we work with people who have health challenges, but we also help the healthy take their wellness, and quality of life, to the next level. We were meant to feel good and heal well. Let us show you how.
Dr. Andrew Scott
