Dr. Justine Rodrigues – Chiropractor
Dr. Justine Rodrigues earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC). She earned a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science degree from Gannon University where she played varsity soccer. Dr. Rodrigues uses evidence-based practice methods specializing in Diversified Technique. This includes manual treatment techniques such as spinal manipulation, mobilizations, exercise therapy involving stretching/strengthening and various methods of soft tissue therapy to treat a wide range of complaints.
Educating patients on lifestyle and ways to help themselves is also a very critical part of treatment plans. All treatments plans are individualized and patient centered with the aim to mitigate ongoing pain or discomfort to get patients back to their pre-injury state.
In 2020, Dr. Rodrigues was honoured to be invited as the athletic trainer for the Guyanese Women’s National team at the U20 Olympic soccer qualifiers held in the Dominican Republic. She supported the team with their health requirements, nutrition needs, and athletic therapy. This has been a highlight of Dr. Rodrigues’ career thus far and she is looking forward to similar opportunities in future competitions.
Dr. Rodrigues enjoys playing soccer in League 1 Ontario and travelling for the Guyanese Women’s National Team where she has played in multiple World Cup and Olympic Qualifiers around the world. In addition to Dr. Rodrigues being a very active individual, she also values the importance of proper nutrition and mental health in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When she is not at work or playing soccer, you can find her up North at the cottage and spending time with loved ones.
