Following a Childhood Dream

Transcona Chiropractor, Dr. Vaughn White

Dr. Vaughn White

“An important moment in my childhood happened when I was about 10 or 12 years old. I was alone with my father at his work and I pointed to the anatomy charts on the wall. I confidently declared, ‘One day I’m going to know all that.'”

From that moment forward Dr. White knew he’d help people as some sort of a healthcare professional. It wasn’t until his second year of sciences at university that he chose to apply to chiropractic college. “Until then, I’d thought I would go into either dentistry or medicine. But neither had ever seemed to completely resonate with me.”

Small Town Roots

“I was born and raised in Neepawa, Manitoba. Our small town proudly boasts this sign as you drive into town: Population just 996,000 short of a million.”

Dr. White graduated from NACI where he received the prestigious Chown Centennial Scholarship for academic excellence. He completed his undergraduate studies at The University of Manitoba and was accepted into The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. “My four long and intense years of study there were also immensely gratifying. I graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1989.”

“I worked in the small towns of Virden and Melita, Manitoba for a year and a half after graduation, and then opened my own office in Winnipeg. I’ve been here now since 1991.”

A Sceptic With An Open Mind

“If you’re skeptical about what chiropractic can do for you – don’t worry; I was too!”

Dr. White keeps an open mind to new ideas and concepts, but he tends to start off with a bit of a “prove it to me” attitude. “Some of the concepts I was taught in chiropractic college raised questions in my mind. But I can honestly say that as the years go on, my conviction in chiropractic continues to grow and not a week goes by that the results I see in patients’ lives don’t excite me.”

“This is part of why I believe it’s so important to respect your goals and care for you in the manner that you desire. I can’t want wellness for you and make it so. I truly care for each patient, do my best to help, and am willing to refer patients elsewhere when it makes sense.” If another type of health care professional is better able to care for a patient’s problem at a particular point, Dr. White will refer you because all that matters is that you get well and that you get the help you need.

Outside The Office

“My wonderful wife, Cheryl, and I have been enjoying marriage since 1992. Our three fantastic children – Quintana, Graeson and Rhonan – all play hockey 10 months of the year, so when I’m not at work I’m usually at a rink!”

“We do almost everything as a family. We love trips, family movie nights, walks, bike rides and just hanging out together. We love going to the family cottage in the summer, where we swim, snorkel, scuba dive, fish and have fun. I enjoy regular workouts, reading, spending time with friends and family and learning new things. We’ve also added a Mini Schnauzer named Sherlock to our family, and he ramps up the energy around our home!”
