Native to the city of St. Catharines, Dr. Daniel Prinsen spent most of his weekends and summers working on a local farm in Niagara-On-The-Lake tending to the peaches, grapes and flowers found in many Niagara supermarkets. Dr Prinsen’s ambition to become a healthcare professional was sparked during medical campaigning tours in Peru and Ecuador where he provided medical services to various communities in need. He had a personal interest in athletics and health, and went on to receive a 4-year Bachelor of Health Sciences from Brock University. He continued his education with another 4 years at Toronto’s Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College from which he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Dr. Prinsen is proficient in Diversified (hands-on) Chiropractic Technique, muscle-release Therapy and Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy (IASTM) and various auxillary modalities. Certification in Functional Integrative Acupuncture provides him with a biomedical approach to acupuncture that addresses function and movement along with pain and nervous system modulation
Dr. Prinsen has a passion for sports - his personal athletic interests include soccer, volleyball, and weight-lifting. A history of competitive sports provides him with a greater knowledge of athletic movements and stresses allowing him to better understand, care for and train his patients. Dr. Prinsen believes in prevention as the best medicine. For injuries and physical care he takes a functional approach - strength, range of motion, and control are at the core of his Chiropractic treatment philosophy.
