Chiropractic as a Way of Life

St. Catharines Chiropractor

Dr. Indira Pillay-Rego

My Mom and Dad (who is a family physician), immigrated to Canada from South Africa in the 1960’s. Shortly after arriving in Canada, my father heard about chiropractic and learned that the primary principle of chiropractic is: that while the body is designed as self-regulating and healing, removal of any nerve interference allows the body to heal and function optimally. This is what made him decide that we all need chiropractic, and my family have been patients ever since.

I have been receiving chiropractic for wellness care since I was just two years old! No more ear infections, less coughs and colds, and decreased antibiotic use for me. My parents had less heartburn, fatigue, headaches, back pain and experienced increased energy.

Choosing Chiropractic

A person’s health can be represented on a continuum line, with crisis (where you are sick or are experiencing SUBoptimal health) at one end and wellness (where you experience optimal health and zest for living) at the other:


While all forms of health care are important, I chose chiropractic because it not only helps people through the crisis of pain, it helps people reach their optimal health by ensuring that the communication system that controls the body is functioning at its very best.

Seeing how well regular chiropractic care made my family feel and function solidified my decision to pursue chiropractic (versus medicine) as my profession.


I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science from the University of Western Ontario in London. I then pursued my Doctorate of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, where I met my husband.

Seeing patients transition from crisis care is one of the most exciting things I encountered during my training. To see people realize that their bodies have the potential to function better than they ever imagined is the most rewarding part of my career.

I feel that it is our responsibility to educate people about the benefits of chiropractic. It is terrible to see people who come to chiropractic as a last resort, when we could have helped them so much sooner.

Our Family

Paul and I are very blessed to have two wonderful children. Both of our children are very active in sports, our daughter plays basketball and our son plays both hockey and soccer. Because my husband and I are fortunate enough to work together, one person is usually in the office while the other is responsible for home life. We recognize that we are very fortunate to be able to be involved with our kids and all of their activities. Our children have also become shining examples of living virtually drug free. By getting adjusted regularly, having a healthy diet and staying active they have been able to stay healthy without the need for many other forms of interventions.

So, for all you moms out there I get it. I know what it is like to juggle a career, family and a household. As a result, I have a special interest in female health issues and children.
