Dr. Brad Norman
My name is Brad Norman. I am truly blessed to have my beautiful wife, Natacha, to share our dreams together and I am blessed to be the father of 3 super healthy and vibrant boys, who have unbridled potential, and who love life.
Not everyday is perfect, but most days we have fun and we always sleep well.I love being a chiropractor, in fact if I wasn’t, I don’t know what I would be.
It’s what I am. My life is simple. Each day I make sure that nothing gets in the way of my boys unbridled potential, I fall more in love with Natacha, and I serve God with all my heart through chiropractic.
A Dream is Born
It wasn’t until my 2nd year in London at the University of Western Ontario that I really knew anything about chiropractic. As I grew up I had an understanding that drugs were just not the right approach to health, so when some friends from school told me I should check out chiropractic, I did.As I learned what chiropractic was and how much it seemed to help people (my Mom started seeing a chiropractor in Barrie, who cured her of major headaches), I was given a new vision for my life. I decided to chase after the dream of becoming a chiropractor.I worked harder than ever at school and got the grades I needed to get into the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. In the late spring of 1998, the letter came in the mail saying that I was accepted – what a feeling!
My Dad watched me walk up the drive way and when he knew what the letter said gave me the biggest hug of my life – thanks Dad.During the four years I spent at chiropractic college I worked hard at my school work, but a lot of important time and study of the science of chiropractic was done outside of class. I became a member, then vice president and eventually the president of the Gonstead chiropractic club. I’m not sure why I originally chose Dr. Gonstead’s approach, but when I had my first Gonstead adjustment, I went 3 weeks without a single headache! Up to that point, I was getting them almost daily. That was it, I was convinced. Not only would I be a chiropractor, but I would be a Gonstead chiropractor. I started making trips to Chicago and other places in the United States to learn more about Gonstead technique from the masters, Dr. Gonstead’s personal students when they were younger. The more I learned about Gonstead, the more I realized that this was the very best way to help people, not only patients, but also my family.
In 2002 we felt lead to open our practice in Barrie so that I would be able to help my friends and family. We now enjoy living in Oro. We play and coach soccer, we love doing family hikes into the bush and having camp fires and have a great time in the winter time on the backyard ice rink. The one in our family I forgot to mention is Maximus our white golden retriever. He goes with us just about everywhere. Each day when I pull out of our driveway, I feel sad for a little while that I am leaving Natacha and my boys for the day, but as I get closer to the office, I start to feel excited about the amazing things that are going to happen that day.
I look forward to serving and inspiring you, our patients and community everyday with Gonstead chiropractic and our amazing team here at New Life Chiropractic!
