dr. Matthew Diston
H.BA (Kin), D.C., Acu Provider
Dr. Diston graduated at the top of his class in 2018 from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College after graduating from the University of Western Ontario with a Honors BA with specialization in Kinesiology.
As a Chiropractor, he has a particular interest in using medical electro-acupuncture in order to increase motor recruitment for a variety of different purposes. Such purposes could include helping post-operative patients strengthen particular muscle groups, improve an athletes motor recruitment and movement patterns, or decreasing pain sensitivity in order to create a more positive healing environment.
He is no stranger to the world of sport as he was a national level gymnast, earning first place in the Artistic All Around Eastern Canadian Gymnastics Championships. At the university level, we competed in pole vaulting, and his record high jumps still stand at the University of Western Ontario. These days, he is a CrossFit enthusiast, for which he enjoys for the community; a community of people who are striving to better themselves through health and fitness.
Having experienced an athletic career-ending injury in his first year of university, Dr. Diston has a particular passion for working with athletes who have sustained traumatic injuries. He values a multi-disciplinary approach with physicians and musculoskeletal specialists in order to promote optimal healing environments so that athletes can return to sport as quickly and as safely as possible. Nothing is more rewarding then seeing an athlete return to their full potential and doing what they love after sustaining a traumatic injury.
Dr. Diston comes highly decorated from CMCC where he was given the Ontario Chiropractic Association Award for outstanding academic achievements, contributions to student life and a commitment to the chiropractic profession and their community. He also received the Judy Ladell Memorial Award for being nominated as the class valedictorian.
