While some people know from an early age what they plan to be when they grow up, others encounter events that set them down the path they’re meant to follow. Dr. Josh was only seventeen years old when he and his brother were rear-ended by a vehicle travelling 40 mph. He sustained a severe shoulder injury that shut down the joint’s flexibility; his brother was left with debilitating migraines, for which he was told the only course of action would be antidepressants and muscle relaxers for the rest of his life. The Beaudry family sought myriad treatment options – physical therapy, medications, massage, acupuncture, etc – but it wasn’t until the boys saw a chiropractor that things started to look up. Within his first adjustment, Dr. Josh’s pain was reduced by 50%, and his brother’s headaches were down by 25%. Though the journey took 4 hours round-trip, it was well worth it as the Beaudry boys got their lives back after several months. Fate struck several years later in the form of another car accident, but this time Dr. Josh knew the relief he would get from chiropractic and because we sought treatment that very day, he was back on his feet in just 2 weeks time.
Fast forward to after he had completed his BS in Exercise & Health Physiology at University of Calgary: Dr. Josh was a pre-med student on the cusp of starting his journey to become a medical doctor. One day, through divine intervention, he became consumed by the question, “Why should we be trying to mask symptoms with drugs, when the power to heal ourselves lies within us?”. It was this question that inspired a shift in his post-grad journey, as no one was able to answer it for him — except for his chiropractor. So from here he completed his four-year degree at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia – from which he graduated Cum Laude – earning him his degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic.
