Dr. DJ Wombold
Dr. DJ Wombold grew up in Kelowna, B.C. playing sports throughout high school and undergrad. A jack-of-all-trades athlete, he focused on hockey and volleyball. Exposed to chiropractic from a young age, he was constantly utilizing the profession to help the aches and pains of competition. Realizing that he needed more than a prescription for lasting relief to nagging injuries, he decided on a career involving a natural and holistic healthcare approach.
Dr. DJ completed his Bachelor of Science in Biology degree at Burman University. Shortly thereafter he married his beautiful wife and they had their first son. In 2014. they made the move to Portland to begin his chiropractic education at the University of Western States. Two years later, they welcomed their second son. After 3 demanding years, he graduated the Doctor of Chiropractic program, Summa Cum Laude, with a Masters of Science in Sports Medicine. DJ and his family are thrilled to be living back home in the Okanagan.
