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!
Hi my name is Sarah and I am a Chiropractic assistant here at New Life. I have been helping Dr. Brad heal our community since 2009 and absolutely enjoy it. I love coming to work everyday and know that what I do will help make a difference in peoples lives.
Working here is like having an extended family, not only with the team and the doctor but also with the patients. We are fortunate enough to have many AMAZING patients here at the clinic. I am so grateful to have them in my life.
Before coming to work at New Life I had been seeing a chiropractor for almost my whole life. My mom always believed in chiropractic but I never really understood how it all worked until I came to work for Dr. Brad. Here at our clinic we make a point of educating our patients on exactly what chiropractic is. I think this is AWESOME!!!
I came to the clinic suffering from seasonal allergies; headaches, that came with barometric pressure changes, and lower back pain. This concerned me, as I was the ripe old age of 26 when I started here!!!! Within a few months of Dr. Brad adjusting me I no longer got headaches, and my lower back pain was gone. A few months after that I noticed that I was able to breathe and my allergies were much less severe then ever before!!! What amazed me the most were the changes in things I never thought were a problem! My digestion is so much better and Dr. Brad has really helped not just me but our patients live a WHOLE healthier lifestyle.Needless to say I am ecstatic and I look forward to seeing you in the clinic!
Hello, my name is Candace. I am a strong independent Mom who knows the importance of being healthy for myself and my son. My world revolves around him. We love the outdoors and the time we spend together. I am new to chiropractic care. I was completely unaware of the benefits. What I love about New Life Chiropractic is that Dr.Brad and his team take the time to teach you about the body and the importance of chiropractic care. I found it extremely helpful in understanding my results and the care I needed to improve my health. I have learned so much since starting here. I suffer from lower back pain and severe migraines. Since starting care, I have seen a change in severity and frequency. I am using less Tylenol and Advil. I feel very optimistic that medications will be a thing of the past as I continue in my chiropractic journey. I have also found such great relief in my lower back. I can’t remember a time where I didn’t have a constant throbbing in my lower back. We have an amazing and loving team that I am extremely blessed to be a part of.
Hello, my name is Ashley
I am a hard working mom so it is extremely important that I am healthy. I have a beautiful son and we are always on the go. We love spending time outdoors and playing sports. I help assist with my son’s baseball team so we are very active!
Before I started working at New Life, I was very unfamiliar with how chiropractic plays such a significant role in our health. I suffered from neck pain and headaches which made it difficult for me to live my busy life.
Since I have began my journey with Dr. Brad and the team, I have come to recognize the positive changes in my life. I have minimal neck pain and have not had any headaches since I started care.
I am so honored to be part of a team that focuses so completely on helping the community and each person in it!
