Dr. Dennis Mizel

My purpose is to help create a more loving planet. My Vision is to alleviate pain, to restore health and to prolong life.

Dr. Dennis Mizel

Growing up I had never heard of chiropractic. My parents constantly reminded me of how annoying my habit of knuckle, wrist, elbow, hip, back and neck cracking was to them!

All I knew was that it felt GREAT! Little did I know that all of this stretching and joint repositioning would be leading me into discovering chiropractic.

What I didn’t know at the time was that all of this stretching and joint repositioning was actually part of a science that would help my body get stronger, more vitalized and more energized!

Chiropractic Education

It didn’t take long before I was enthusiastically exploring the profession of chiropractic and consequently enrolled in Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. I was excited about the idea of helping people regain their health through natural and gentle methods. I attended University of Toronto for my undergraduate work and did my post-graduate Chiropractic degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. These two world-class facilities provided me with tools to provide the best of health care to our community.

Chiropractic care has the potential to save lives

I have seen some very sick people get well in our St. Catharines Chiropractic office. Chiropractic care has the potential to save lives if the adjustment is delivered to the right bone, in the right direction, with the right force at the right time. Tissues deprived of proper blood and nerve supply cannot thrive. With chiropractic care you can remove the interference to the tissues to allow the proper blood and nerve supply to reach all tissues.

It has become very clear to me that those that take care of their spines and nervous systems by regularly having themselves checked and corrected by their chiropractor enjoy overall better health. In my opinion the healthiest people on the planet are under chiropractic care. If more people understood and embraced this notion our hospitals would not be as busy!

Outside the office

I grew up in Toronto and most of my family is still in Toronto, Ontario. My wife grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario and most of her family is here.

My wife Maxine and I have two wonderful children that we are very proud of. Samantha is a elementary school teacher at an independent school in Toronto, Ontario. Ilana is a Lawyer practicing in Windsor.

In my personal time away from the office I enjoy attending educational seminars. I am one of those lucky ones, as Chiropractic is not only my vocation, it is also my hobby. I like learning as a hobby. I am always taking courses. One of my highest values is EDUCATION! If I am not at a course you can find me visiting my daughters in Toronto and Windsor. For vacations I enjoy cruising and we have been exploring Europe the last few years.

I have been receiving chiropractic care for over 45 years. I have enjoyed maintenance care chiropractic adjustments at a frequency of weekly to monthly. This has assisted me in being pain-free, healthy and full of energy.

I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Give our office a call or email me.
