Dr. David S. Williams, DC has provided chiropractic care to residents of Castlegar for the past 30 years. What started out as a six week commitment to fill in for another chiropractor has turned into a life-long practice in Castlegar.

“By the time the six weeks were over we had grown to love the area, the mountains and the river,” says Williams, “and were floored by the welcoming, kind people in Castlegar.”

Dr. Williams graduated from UBC and the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Becoming a Chiropractor requires seven years of post-secondary education. He also participates in continuing education courses every year.

Dr. Williams provides chiropractic care for muscle and skeletal problems, using methods that are evidence based from studies that show effectiveness and safety. When asked about his career highlights, Dr. Williams stated, “Each case is a highlight. People come in pain and I fix them up.” He sums up his philosophy as, “Find it, fix it and leave them alone.”

He also believes in community involvement, having spent eight years on the library board and was chairman of the Kinsman Park Water-spray Project.  He has also been a member of the Castlegar Rotary Club for 26 years.
