Dr. Edward Gray has been a practicing chiropractor since 1996. He is a graduate from Queen’s University where he completed an honours Baccalaureate degree in Biological Sciences. He attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, where he graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Once in practice, he further advanced his education through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute, where he received his certification status. He now works with Acupuncture Canada on the National Education Committee and as a Clinical Lecturer and Facilitator, teaching other health professionals the art, science, and philosophy of acupuncture. He is also an Examiner for Acupuncture Canada, ensuring the organization’s high standards are met by other health professionals as they are trained in acupuncture. Dr. Gray is registered with the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO).
Dr. Gray has received awards in recognition of his contributions to rehabilitation. He has been published in a peer-reviewed journal for his research in rehabilitation, specifically outlining the benefits to patients when a multidisciplinary approach is used in patient care. He utilizes acupuncture as an adjunctive modality to his chiropractic practice, where his experience is that the two therapies complement each other, working in synergy, and offers patients more options for the management of their health care. Other modalities used in his practice include Low Intensity Laser Therapy, Ultrasound, Electrotherapeutics, Foot Orthotics, and a variety of soft tissue therapies.
His philosophy to patient care is to treat the patient, and not just the injury. By focusing on the source of the problem it can be corrected quickly, at which point he can give the patient the necessary tools to prevent future recurrences. “I want to be your chiropractor for life. I don’t necessarily want to see you weekly, but I want to leave a good enough impression so that the next time you have an injury or a problem, I am the person you go to for the ‘solution’.”

Dr. Gilliard graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2015, receiving Clinic Honours recognizing proficiency during his clinical internships. He also completed his acupuncture certification with McMaster University in 2015 by completing the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Program. Prior to all of this, he completed a Bachelor of Kinesiology, graduating with first-class honours at Brock University in 2011. Dr. Gilliard is currently a member of the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) and Ontario Chiropractic Association (OCA), as is registered with the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO).
Dr. Gilliard strongly believes in the ability to stay active as a key element to functional well-being. Finding and treating the source of a patient’s complaint, rather than a single painful spot, allows him to help patients stay active in whatever capacity they desire. Dr. Gilliard believes in working with patients to achieve their goals, and combines a variety of treatment approaches including manual therapy, acupuncture, modalities, and rehabilitative exercises to impart evidence-based treatments.
Golf and Chiropractic
Dr. Gilliard also has a special interest in golf, seeking additional expertise in this field by getting Certified with the Titleist Performance Institute. This gives him a better understanding of swing biomechanics, common injury patterns, and how physical limitations result in changes in swing mechanics.
Dr. Gilliard understands that every golfer has a unique swing — there is no one “right” way to swing the club! But he does believe there is one efficient way for each golfer to swing the club that is unique to them, based on the physical abilities of the golfer. By improving the function of each golfer’s body (by decreasing pain, increasing mobility, etc), Dr. Gilliard hopes to improve your golf game as well.

I have been working as a Registered Massage Therapist in Oakville since 2004. I am registered with the College of Massage Therapists’ of Ontario, a member of the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario, and soon to be a member of the Society for Oncology Massage.
There are so many aspects and benefits of Massage Therapy that I love. Being a part of a client’s recovery process, whether it be surgery, injury, cancer, stress, depression, etc. has been incredibly rewarding. That level of personal involvement continues to motivate me to learn a wider variety of techniques, and has in turn led to major advances in my clients’ health and well-being.
Over the years I have expanded my interest and knowledge in areas such as Oncology Massage, Sports Injury Therapy, and incorporating Spider Tech Tape with the treatment of injuries. With every course I take and implement into my practice, I have seen positive results for my clients. I am also better able to educate them on their current conditions, and can use more varied approaches to treatment and rehabilitation. I continue my commitment to study different conditions, approaches, and treatments every day and to use this knowledge to inform my clients, so that together as a team we can achieve their goals.
