Dr. John Neal, BSc, CSCS, DC


John grew up in the small rural community of Brown's Flat, NB. From a young age, John excelled in his academics while having a passion for the sport of hockey. With the dreams of working in the sport of hockey, it was a hockey injury that opened his eyes to the healthcare world.

Upon graduating from Harbour View High School in Saint John, NB, John sought out to begin his post-secondary education at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, ON. While there, he excelled in the Honours Kinesiology program while completing the co-operative element of the program in a variety of health field occupations. During this time, he found chiropractic to be his calling. He went on to successfully attain his Doctor of Chiropractic from the prestigious Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, ON. While completing his studies at CMCC, John also attained his certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a certification in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture from the University of McMaster in Hamilton, ON, and become an Emergency First Responder through the Canadian Red Cross.

Along with his academic accomplishments, John loves being involved in his communities through volunteering and working with local sports teams and participating in a wide range of sports. John has been the trainer and sideline medical staff for a variety of sports including hockey, rugby, soccer, and even figure skating. In his spare time, John loves to stay active with playing a variety of sports including hockey, golf, baseball, volleyball, and curling!

Despite having a passion for sport, his greatest passion is to help others! John wants to see people at their best with being pain free and happy. As a chiropractor, Dr. Neal approaches his assessment and treatments with the goal of restoring biomechanical function to the human body.
