We believe that the human body should express abundant health! Given the proper environment we should always tend toward health. Every human being on the planet possesses the potential to have ridiculous mobility, radiate abundant energy, be symptom free, and have the life that they so desire. The first step is the conscious awareness that you possess this god given or innate potential to be insanely healthy. The next step is ensuring that you have the ability to express it fully. In order to do so it is paramount that you have exceptional nervous system health and a clear communication between the nervous system and the body, often referred to as the Brain / Body connection.

Entertain me for a bit as I take you through Human Anatomy 101. The Nervous System innervates every single cell, organ, and tissue of the body. Therefore, it regulates and controls every single system and function of the body. In fact, the nervous system is compromised of 3 systems: motor (your muscular system), autonomic (your organs, glands, cells), and sensory (your perception of your senses including pain), which governs the entire physiology of the human body. If interference occurs within the nervous system then it will ultimately affect all 3 systems causing an overall decrease in function, and ultimately a decrease in your health. Some may notice this more as the expression of signs and symptoms, i.e. neck pain and/or lower back pain, but nonetheless it is your entire health that is compromised here. I know that your next question is probably “how does this interference occur and what can I do about it?”.

–Insert Chiropractic Here–

Unfortunately, we live in a world full of physical, chemical, and emotional stressors which all play a significant role in the break down of our health. Subconsciously, our body displaces this stress by trying to continuously adapt to its environment and move toward health. If there is a system overload the body tends to compensate, as a defensive mechanism, and will result in a Vertebral Subluxation. If these Vertebral Subluxations persist within the nervous system for long periods of time they start to cause an interference between the nervous systems ability to communicate to the rest of your body. Furthermore, if left uncorrected they can actually start to break down the spinal structures leading to degeneration and permanent losses of function.

There is nothing simple about explaining the process and the physiology of Vertebral Subluxation, but imagine yourself functioning at 80% as opposed to the 100% that you have the potential for. Which percentage would you prefer to operate at? If you can understand that concept, then understanding Chiropractic becomes quite simple. My objective as your Chiropractor is to detect these areas of interference within the nervous system and remove them. By removing this interference we are changing the way that your body is able to adapt to its environment. After that, a lot of awesome things can start to happen in regards to human physiology. We are talking way more than your typical relief of neck and back pain, but I’ll leave that to your curiousity until I can show you first hand.

When myself, my sister, and my father first met Dr. Pope we knew very little about what a chiropractor did and we weren't even sure if we would have any benefit from it, but your treatments and personalized care has made such a huge difference to all of us and relieved us from issues such as lower and upper back pain, headaches, postural correction, and stress reduction. We've also benefited from the personalised attention that you give and the extent you go to help us understand and educate us on the true meaning of a healthy nervous system.

I came to Dr. Pope doubled-over with acute back pain after suffering a disc herniation. I had been suffering from lower back pain on and off for several years and though that by ignoring it, the pain would simply go away. Dr. Pope quickly assessed the situation and began me on a course of treatment that not only resolved the back pain issues, but also treated other issues in my hips and feet that were contributing to the pain and postural alterations that I had been suffering from for all these years. Dr. Pope's holistic approach to chiropractic care not only resolved my immediate pain issues, it gave me the tools I needed to prevent a re-occurrence of the same problem in the future.

I’ve been through a variety of treatments for my back problems (Schuermann’s disorder, scolosis, and a herniated disc), and none have shown me much progress until I was introduced to Dr. Ryan Pope. Under his chiropractic care, I have had noticeable improvements in my back – a reduction of pain, and an improvement in my mobility. My wife and I both see him for maintance care and we continually recommend him to all of our friends and family.

I would like to thank Dr. Pope for his skilled and proficient chiropractic care. Over the past year I have enjoyed increased mobility and flexibility, a significant reduction in neck and back pain and a greater overall sense of well-being. I have recommended Dr. Pope to several people that are looking to take their health to the next level but do not know where to begin.

When I first met Dr. Pope, I had been suffering from debilitating back pain and was told that I would probably require surgery to alleviate the pain. As an aspiring firefighting student, back surgery would have ended my career before it even started. Dr. Pope was able to alleviate my pain completely and restore full mobility. I continue to see Dr. Pope regularly because he helps me to train at the top of my potential, and feel my best. He may not have saved my life, but he definitely saved my livelihood.

I began to see Dr. Pope in June 2009 after I experienced sharp pain in my lower back. After receiving intensive treatments to repair the problem, I chose to continue my treatments as a preventative measure. Since receiving treatments I feel stronger and healthier which has had a major impact on my everyday life. I plan on continuing my regular visits with Dr. Pope to take my health to its optimal level and maintain it.


Before going to the Chiropractor, I was having headaches daily, and sometimes to the point of being sick to my stomach, and now I’m going weeks without a headache. This has been a dream come true. Although I'm sure Advil isn't happy that I'm using less, I know I am. Chiropractic care, more importantly, Dr. Pope, has made it possible for me to be Advil free!

When I started under Dr. Pope’s care, I immediately saw results. I was able to sleep, less headaches and over the course of time, less episodes of feeling faint and dizzy, and today, that feeling as completely disappeared. Before I started treatment, I could not get through a night without waking up at least 5 times a night. Now I’m waking up approximately one to two times a night, usually to go to the washroom, but I am able to go back to sleep very quickly. Today, I am able to sleep on my side again, and due to your sleeping seminars, as well as your guidance, I have been able to keep my back relatively calm and in place while getting a good night's sleep. I can also see a difference when I lay down on my back. I feel more...level or balanced. This has made sleep a lot more comfortable. I like to have sleeping options, and now I can sleep on my back or side and not be in agony the next day.


Knowledge is power, and I believe that Dr. Pope has a lot of information to share to the Kanata community about the restoration of health and wellness through the means of chiropractic care.
