ABOUT DR. LE BLANC
Dr. Charles Le Blanc DC
Doctor of Chiropractic
My name is Dr Charles Le Blanc, Chiropractor. I've graduated in 1995 from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. I am from New Brunswick but decided to practice in the Ottawa region because I've always thought that this city was amazing. I've been blessed to practice in your area at Ramilas. As a Chiropractor, I often get asked about the reason for choosing this profession.
When I graduated, my generic response was to help people. As the years went by, it became more than that. Today, that reason has become much more than just helping people. It has become a passion. Before elaborating on this passion, let's go through some case studies that will shed some light on this transformation.
A few years ago, Maria, a 47 years old computer programmer, came to see me depressed, with chronic back pain and walking with a cane. She was depressed because after 2 unsuccessful back surgeries, her doctor had mentioned that if her condition kept getting worse, she would need a walker or possibly a wheelchair. She was crying at our first meeting. She was tearful because she wouldn't be able to take her first, 10-month-old, grandson for a walk and to play in the local park. In the beginning of care and to her surprise, she soon realized that she became less dependent on her cane. And, as she progressed with her care, she was able to walk without her cane. At this time, she was walking with complete freedom, no more pain and no anti-depressant medications, but most importantly, she was smiling every time I met her and walking and playing with her grandson in the park. Maria has a better life.
One day, Roberta brought her 8-year-old son, Bobby, to the clinic. The reason for bringing her son to the clinic was different than your typical back pain and headaches. It was for bedwetting. At a frequency of 4-5 times per week, this condition bothered Bobby enormously. His friends would ask him often for sleepovers, and, with sadness, he and his mother would always find new excuses. Shortly after starting Chiropractic care, his bedwetting frequency started to dwindle. One day, Bobby wanted to ask me a very important question. He wanted to ask me if he could go to a sleepover because he hadn't wet his bed in over 3 weeks. As I nodded in approval for his first sleepover, his joy glowed brighter than the sun. Bobby has a better life.
Today, if you were to ask me about my reason for choosing my profession, it would be more than just helping people. My passion would be to transform people lives through Chiropractic care. Regardless of your condition, illness, pain and suffering, my passion is to give you hope, more strength and more healing by working with you to obtain a changed and better life.
