Dr. Jaritt Ptolemy,
Dr. Jaritt’s interest in sport and fitness lead him to pursue an Honours Kinesiology Degree at McMaster University (2005). Being a sprinter on the McMaster Track and Field team allowed him to experience and journey through multiple injury recoveries.
What started as a frustration soon became his passion, which lead him to pursue a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College so he could help others recover
faster and perform better.
As a student at CMCC, he became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and worked part-time as a personal trainer.
He also went back to McMaster University part-time to become a Certified Medical Acupuncture Provider (Not offered in BC). Within his first few years of clinical practice, Dr. Jaritt was a team therapist
on two national level teams with the Women's National Soccer team and the Canada Rugby League.
Dr. Jaritt also had the privilege of working with one of Canada's
foremost fitness experts and educators in Kevin Darby,
where he educated personal trainers and coaches across Canada
on client assessment and program design.
