It all started when…
“I have always been fascinated by how the body works and interested in natural ways to heal it. This interest started when I was 16 after my younger sister was diagnosed with scoliosis. She was told she would need to wear a back brace for 23 hours a day 7 days a week and possibly require surgery where they put two metal rods in your spine. She was devastated and worried beyond belief! Our parents knew that this a worst case scenario for my sister, who was 14 years old at the time, so they asked around and were referred to a Chiropractor for another opinion. After just a few adjustments with the chiropractor my sister was getting significant relief and feeling much better! At a later visit with the orthopedic surgeon she was told that the scoliosis was not progressing and that she wouldn’t need surgery! That’s when I knew I wanted to be a Doctor of Chiropractic…”
After completing his undergraduate studies at Carleton University, Dr. Travis W. M. Cox went on to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. In his studies he focused his practice specialty on NUCCA and other effective chiropractic techniques that help with headaches, migraines, neck pain, whiplash and back pain. Dr. Travis is a Board certified Doctor of Chiropractic in both United States and in Canada since 2009.
He has upgraded his education over the years to complete the following certifications:
Master of Science in Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine (c)
Spinal MRI Interpretation – Levels 1 & 2
Spinal Biomechanics Certification
NUCCA Part 1 Certified
AminoBiofrequency (ANF) – Level 2 Certified
As a means of giving back to the Calgary community, he enjoys donating his professional services at the Calgary Drop In and Rehabilitation Centre one day per week when he’s not caring for patients at FuncMed.
Although being a proponent of gentle upper cervical techniques, like NUCCA, for his headache and neck pain patients, Dr. Travis enjoys providing multimodal care including Active Release Technique, full spine adjustments, Shockwave, cold laser, & spinal decompression. When an individual presents with health issues that go beyond chiropractic care, Dr. Travis enjoys integrating in personalized lifestyle medicine that goes to the root cause of an individual's condition. This will often include giving lifestyle strategies on diet, nutrition, exercise and stress management.
When Dr. Travis is out of the clinic he enjoys spending time with his two amazing boys, Cooper & Tristan. Such family outdoor past time activities include hiking, camping, and skiing. When he’s not busy with his two young boys he enjoys competing in obstacle course races, strength training, eating a Plant Based Diet, yoga, meditation and playing guitar.
