Guelph Chiropractor Dr. Frank Dallan
“As a child I suffered from intense migraines at least once every two weeks.”
Dr Frank recalls. “These migraines were so unbearable that my mother would put me to bed in a darkened room, where even the faintest light caused me great pain. My mother decided to do some research, and came across some information suggesting that Chiropractic care could possibly relieve migraines. My mother was skeptical in the beginning but didn’t want to rely on Tylenol or Advil as a source of relief so she decided to give Chiropractic a try. I started going to a Chiropractor and over the course of the next year the occurrence of my migraines diminished drastically. Since then, I have been fascinated with the field of Chiropractic. However, it was not until my experience volunteering at my brother in-law (Dr. Brent Lipke’s) clinic, that my desire to become a Chiropractor was solidified. At this point in time I was impressed with a Chiropractor’s vast knowledge base in the health sciences, and the art and precision with which they assist the body to heal naturally, to truly help the sick become healthy. It was this excitement about becoming a Chiropractor that motivated me to focus more time and energy on my studies. I knew then that I was truly destined to become a Chiropractor, and that I had found my calling, and made a commitment to myself that I would do whatever it took to realize my dream. Like my brother-in-law Dr. Brent, I have found purpose and passion in helping people unleash their own ability to lead a vibrantly healthy, and fulfilling life.”
Dr. Frank began his pre-chiropractic education at the University of Guelph, where he attained his degree in the Honors Biological Science program. There, he studied biology, physiology, organic chemistry, mammalian physiology, biochemistry, physics and human nutrition. After completing his study at the University of Guelph he was accepted into a variety of Chiropractic programs and chose to receive his Doctorate in Saint Louis Missouri, at Logan College of Chiropractic. During his stay at Logan, courses included, biochemistry, microbiology, embryology, X-ray physics, with a major emphasis on human physiology, human anatomy, neuro-anatomy, human neurology, differential diagnosis, diagnostic imaging, human nutrition, chiropractic adjusting techniques, physical rehabilitation, and patient care in the Logan satellite clinics. After graduating in 2007, Dr. Frank returned to his hometown of Guelph to practice with his brother-in-law.

“I would like to leave you with one very powerful quote, used by one of the pioneers of Chiropractic, Dr. B.J. Palmer which he used in his book The Big Idea (1944) ‘So, the adjustment of the subluxation to release pressure upon nerves, to restore mental impulse flow, to restore health, is big enough to rebuild the thoughts and actions of the world. The idea that knows the cause of dis-ease, is one of the biggest ideas known. Without it, nations fall; with it, nations rise.’ ”
