Welcome Home Dr. Paul!

Sauble Beach has a new professional. Dr. Paul Knechtel, who has over 30 years of experience in chiropractic, has taken over the patient files of Dr. Douglas Fry

Dr. Paul Knechtel recently returned home to live in Southampton. Paul was born in Goderich, completed all of his elementary school in Owen Sound, and graduated in 1979 from SDSS in Port Elgin. He went to Western and then completed his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 1986. After graduation he initially practiced in Ottawa for three years then in Hudson and Westmount, Quebec.

Paul Knechtel DC is a member of the College of Chiropractors of Ontario, Ordre des Chiropraticiens du Quebec, Association des Chiropraticiens du Quebec and the Canadian Chiropractic Association. He regularly attends postgraduate Chiropractic educational conferences. While practicing in Quebec, he received numerous medical referrals for Hollywood celebrities who requested chiropractic care while filming in Montreal. He also received referrals to help take care of several professional athletes while in Quebec.

I have many years of healthcare experience working in collaboration with medical professionals, physical therapists, massage therapists and other chiropractors. I enjoy helping my patients improve their quality of life, feel less pain, experience better function, mobility, and balance. I use a combination of manual and instrument adjusting giving gentle, safe, hands-on chiropractic and soft-tissue care.
I provide my patients with lifestyle advice, posture tips, and other therapeutic suggestions such as at-home exercises. I also offer my patients dietary and food choice counselling when appropriate. I take care of one patient at a time in a private room, giving my full attention to them during their scheduled appointment time.
I believe in an active healthy outdoor lifestyle that involves regular physical activity in the form of recreational exercise or work. I have been active all of my life and I love the outdoors. The Grey-Bruce area is a recreational paradise with so much beautiful nature all around us. I’m really happy to be living here once again. I left this area over 30 years ago and when someone would ask me where I was from I would always proudly say that I was from Bruce County. My enthusiasm for my home area resulted in many people discovering this region during the past three decades. It has been my dream for many years to return home to be closer to my family. My two children are now adults, so it was finally the right time to move back home.
