Chiropractor D.J. LeDrew D.C.
Dr. DJ LeDrew has been a SW Calgary Chiropractor at Full Potential Chiropractic for over 10 years.
My chiropractic story begins when I was a child suffering from severe migraine headaches. After extensive testing and investigation within the conventional medical system—to no avail—my parents turned to another solution: chiropractic! After one spinal adjustment, my life changed. For the first time in years, I had complete relief from debilitating migraines. From that point on, I was intrigued by chiropractic and began to ponder becoming a chiropractor.
I began my post-secondary studies at the University of Calgary (U of C), where I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Kinesiology with an emphasis in Mind Sciences. During my tenure at U of C, I wrestled for the varsity team and learned the value of hard work by juggling my studies and athletic training.
In 2000, I was recognized as the University of Calgary Scholar-Athlete of the Year, one of my proudest moments. I am grateful for the life lessons learned during my ten-year wrestling career. During those years, I was a five-time national medalist and three-time National Champion, representing Canada at many international competitions.
Although I was just reaching my prime in wrestling, I decided to move on to chiropractic and fulfill my mission of serving humanity instead of pursuing the Olympic dream.
When I began classes in January 2001, I set the goal that I wanted to graduate at the top of my class to be the best doctor I could for my patients. I achieved that goal, graduating as the valedictorian, summa cum laude, and was selected by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as the fee waiver recipient.
I began a solo practice in Calgary, Alberta, in January 2005; and still remain. I maintain one of the busiest family wellness chiropractic offices in the country, helping thousands of patients live a healthier life.
I have a passion for ongoing learning and continue to expand my knowledge by attending regular post-graduate conferences to provide my patients with the most current chiropractic care. I am a Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practitioner (CCWP), I have received many other certifications in pediatrics, upper and lower extremity techniques, TMJ disorders and neurology.
On a personal note, I have two children, Burke and London with my wife Melissa. We are an active family that loves the outdoors and staying fit. We do our best live the chiropractic lifestyle in all areas!
