Dr. Ed Chicoine, BPHE, DC graduated from Chiropractic College in 1983 and has been delivering chiropractic care in Wakefield and Maniwaki, Quebec for many years. He practices preventive health care and has a weekly radio show on wellness. He is the author of two books, one of which was a Canadian best-seller. Dr. Ed loves family adventures; in 1997, he and his wife Gaye and their six children, Tanya, Ben, Dayna, Karina, Jake and Whitney, aged three to twelve at that time, drove down to the bottom of South America from Ottawa, Canada, and came back three and a half years later. He helped introduce chiropractic to thousands of people in Peru, Chile and Brazil during the family adventure. In 2011 the whole family ran across Canada and the United States in relay fashion, completing 15,000 kilometres (9400 miles)in 7 months and setting a record, being the first family of this size to run across 2 countries. Their mission was to inspire as many people as possible to take responsibility for their wellbeing and help create a wellness revolution. Dr. Ed`s passion is to make sure his family and his patients maintain a higher level of health and to share strategies of improved performance and longevity with as many people as possible.

“I strongly believe that everybody has the potential to achieve great health, lots of energy and an overall increase in vitality, when they are given the proper information and are equipped with the right tools. Since graduating from Chiropractic College in 1983 I've always strived to help as many people as possible and of all ages to achieve better health and I've literally invested many hundreds of thousands of dollars in learning different approaches to natural health restoration. I've witnessed many thousands of people improve their health and you can read some of their stories in the testimonials section.”

“Now that I`m in my sixties I feel as good as when I was in my thirties. The only difference is that I don't run as fast now. Getting old does not have to be synonymous with pain and disease. My goal is to help others live as long as possible, while at the same time feel as young as possible.

Julie Gendron

I’ve been working as the chiropractic assistant to Dr. Chicoine in the Maniwaki clinic, since 2012.

Before that, I managed the finance department at our family owned business, “Gendron Automobiles”.

My passion at this point of my life is my health as well as the well-being of my family, friends and the many patients who come to the clinic for help. My favourite pass-time is playing with my four grandchildren, which my two children, Michelle and Pierre have happily provided.
