Dr. Benn Drysdale is a lively, open, good natured and intrinsically driven athlete/Chiropractor with a ready smile and a hearty laugh.
Growing up in the small mountain town of Golden, BC as an avid outdoorsman, Benn's educational career has been intimately connected with sport and health since he began his Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology from the University of Calgary in 2008. His undying curiosity and passion for the human body and all its facets in health then led him to pursue a Doctorate of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, graduating in 2015 with noted clinical excellence and community involvement. While excelling within the program, Benn's intrinsic drive for knowledge and learning drove him to seek further education in certificate programs from the Motion Palpation Institute, the Mindfulness Institute of Toronto, and the Trigenics Institute.
While Benn enjoys every opportunity to aid in care and education, his passions lie in the treatment of muscular and spinal conditions. Benn particularly enjoys working with low back pain, neck pain, headaches, dizziness, TMJ disorders, as well as sport-specific treatment for climbers, skiers and triathletes. In addition to these areas, Benn immensely enjoys treating and educating on chronic pain conditions, sport performance nutrition, healthy aging, treatment of osteoarthritis, post-stroke, and the care for populations with Autism and Cerebral Palsy.
Benn is often spotted doing an eclectic array of sports including Ironman triathlon, rock climbing, mountain biking, and kitesurfing. When he’s not engaged with work or sport, Benn likes to educate on various health conditions and stay active as an athletics coach. He can also make a stellar cup of tea, which he likes to sip while he practices his drawing skills—mostly stickmen and the odd stick-elephant.
He approaches his patient care and life in general with the same core values as Tall Tree Integrated Health: excellence, caring, and fun.
