Meet Dr. Derrick Nolan

Dr Nolan can help you.

With more than two decades of experience helping thousands of patients and having personally encountered all the sprains/strains, pulls/tears, injuries and fractures that an active competitive lifestyle brings, I will be able to help you – either directly myself or by tapping into my extensive network to find the just the right team for you and what you want.           

Though I started out in Fine Arts winning scholarships at the University of Calgary and the world famous Banff Centre, I shifted into the Sciences to study health and healing; earning first a BSc then an MSc in Molecular Genetics from the University of Calgary and then graduated top of my class from Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose.  In addition to this academic background, I have a broad base of notable experience: teaching blind kids to ski, provincial bike racing champion, running multiple marathons, firefighter and emergency response, scrambling and climbing, actively compete and practice karate and am raising a family of two active teenagers with my wife Cassy.    

Most notable about this diverse academic and experiential background is that I have honed my main skill – which is listening to people to quickly and effectively determining what is going on, then efficiently implementing a plan to bring out the best in you as quickly as possible for as long as you wish.     Thank you for visiting our website, clicking through and reading this far.     

 If you have any questions about how I can help you or to explore if my office can help you meet your needs and goals, you can contact us for a complimentary consultation (403) 279-2229.   

I am excited to meet you and am committed to helping the families of our community express their full potential at Douglasdale Family Chiropractic.
