DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC,
Born and raised in Peterborough Ontario, Shayne grew up playing competitive sports but hockey was his real passion. After playing four years in the Ontario Hockey League and on a full hockey scholarship at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, he completed his undergrad in Kinesiology. While pursuing his masters in Rehabilitation Science, Shayne worked with a cardiac and diabetes rehabilitation program as a clinical exercise physiologist and research assistant in the development of the first diabetes educators exercise tool kit. This tool kit was recognized by the Canadian Diabetes Association as valuable in helping educators promote exercise to their patients. Shayne realized that though most of the patients he was assessing were sedentary, there might be underlying causes for their development of heart disease, diabetes or COPD. Most patients were sedentary due to injuries, chronic pain, arthritis and a variety of other MSK issues. He understood the importance of not only fixing these MSK issues for short-term relief, but also to help fight long term health risks.
A graduate of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, Dr. Shayne Fryia has always had a passion for exercise. He feels it plays an essential role in the outcome of a patient’s recovery, as well as helping amplify the benefits of chiropractic treatment. His theory is getting the patient to a pain free level is just the start of the journey. He practices diversified method, Graston, and muscle release therapy.
