Northoak Chiropractic Neurology

Dr. Burness has been serving the Oakville community with results-driven Chiropractic care for twenty years. Chiropractic is his second career. Originally trained as a Microbiologist, Dr. Burness made the decision to change his life’s direction after being helped by Chiropractic himself.

Graduating at the top of his class in 1992, his passion for learning continues to this day. He is currently certified in nine chiropractic and soft-tissue techniques. Always seeking to improve patient outcomes, he continues his studies to develop solutions for chronic and difficult cases for whom traditional chiropractic care has fallen short. In 2011, after 3 years of study he became one of only nine doctors in the country to complete board certification in Chiropractic Neurology.

Functional Neurology is the study of the inter-relationships of an individual’s neuronal systems within the context of their wider health. With the knowledge of the anatomical and embryological relationships within the normal nervous system, specific techniques are used to stimulate repair in damaged or dysfunctional areas improving function and quality of life.

This exciting field offers new hope for patients with neurological disorders that have failed to respond to treatments offered by mainstream medicine.

Further training in endocrinology, blood chemistry analysis and physiology have provided Dr. Burness with a unique skill set. His current approach brings together neurologic, metabolic, nutritional and biomechanical principles, providing effective solutions for many chronic conditions.

His comprehensive analysis leaves no stone unturned in order to develop effective programs of care targeted to the specific needs of each patient.
