DR. PATRICK MANDUCA
Dr. Manduca earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic (now Northwestern Health Sciences University) in December, 1988 and studied at the University of Manitoba in the Faculty of Science from 1982 to 1984.
He began practicing in June, 1989, at the Thunder Bay Chiropractic Clinic with Dr. Harald Rosenfeld, D.C. and practiced there for 13 years. During that time, Dr. Manduca also maintained a weekly clinic at the Atikokan Medical Centre. In December, 2002, Dr. Manduca and Dr. Trevor Foshang D.C. (DACBR), chiropractic radiologist, founded College Park Chiropractic at 774 North James Street in Thunder Bay. They practiced together until Dr. Foshang accepted a college faculty position and a radiologist position at a diagnostic centre in Dallas, TX. Since that time, Dr. Manduca has practiced with Dr. Shane McCormack, D.C.. Dr. Manduca also currently practices in the far north at the Fort Severn First Nation Nurses’ Station with Dr. Chris Giles, M.D..
Dr. Manduca has lectured in clinical diagnosis at the Scandinavian School of Manual Medicine in Stockholm, Sweden on a number of occasions and enjoys these teaching sojourns very much. He has served as staff chiropractor for the Los Angeles Kings and Florida Panthers NHL Rookie Camps in the late 90’s and has been part of the medical staff for the Canadian National University Championships in basketball, hockey and wrestling.
Dr. Manduca’s practice is devoted primarily to mechanical spinal pain, postural syndromes and headaches but he also has a very special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of vertigo (dizziness). He has forged alliances with a number of health care providers in the community and frequently consults with these professionals.
Dr. Manduca loves spending time with his wife Kim and their three sons and also enjoys mountain biking, playing hockey and tennis.
