Hello, my name is Dr. Jason Fox and I would like to welcome you to our clinic. My wife and I moved to Halifax in 2002 to set up the Glenbourne Chiropractic Clinic after graduating from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. We have absolutely enjoyed living here and being of service to the people of Halifax and many of it’s surrounding communities. I feel very privileged to be accepted in this community being that we are not originally from Nova Scotia.
I was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and by the age of three my family was well settled in Kamloops, British Columbia. As many young Canadian kids growing up where the ground is frozen for a good 4 months of the year, I ate, slept and breathed hockey. I played junior A hockey in BC for 3 years before retiring to the University College of the Cariboo Hockey team and shifting my passion to health care. I graduated in 1993 as a Registered Respiratory Therapist and began my career helping others. Over 5 years at Chilliwack General Hospital I worked in all departments and became the chief of the Respiratory Therapy department. As part of my role as an educator, I began to teach the public about the prevention of respiratory diseases such as asthma and other forms of pulmonary illness. It was during this process I realized that I wanted to do more in healthcare to serve to public in a more preventative way instead of waiting for people to get really sick and then try and help them!
I decided that I wanted to be a Chiropractor! I had been seeing a Chiropractor since I was 8 years old for regularly occurring headache and ear pain symptoms. My mother was a nurse and had taken me to many specialists for my symptoms. Antibiotics and “tubes” to drain my inner ear pressure were the usual remedies prescribed. Finally, my mother took me to a chiropractor and the rest, I guess, is why I am a Chiropractor today. I am very grateful for what I have learned in the hospital setting as it has brought me to this point and is a huge part of my 18 years of health care experience. I am excited about what we do here at our clinic and am looking forward to serving you and your family soon.
