A little about the Doc

Dr. Mark Bird holds an Honours Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph, a Master’s of Science from the University of Waterloo, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Dr. Bird approaches manual care with the intent to help establish better mobility and function. He has additional training in Medical Acupuncture, Functional Range Release,  Athletic Movement Assessment, and concussion assessment and management.

Dr. Bird grew up in Niagara Falls, Ontario and moved to Waterloo in 2009 after spending two and a half years working abroad. Dr. Bird has not always been a chiropractor. After completing a BSc (Hon) in Physics and a MSc in Physics and Vision Science, Dr. Bird moved to The Netherlands to work for a medical optics company. Coming back to Canada, Dr. Bird worked for the University of Waterloo and transitioned to Christie Digital where he was a member of their research and development team. Having an itch to do more in health care, Dr. Bird made the decision to pursue his interest in how the body functions by going to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. And here we are today!


Fitness and athletics have always been a big part of Dr. Bird’s life. Through his undergraduate years, he was a competitive rower and coached a high school crew. During his time as a MSc student, Dr. Bird picked up ultimate frisbee and played for both the University of Waterloo’s Men’s team and for the co-ed KW touring team. Moving to Holland didn’t stop him from playing his sport of choice as he played ultimate frisbee for the city of Groningen and eventually for the National Men’s team there. Nowadays, Dr. Bird stays active by working out and going for walks/hikes and bike rides with his family.
