About Dr. Matt Tonnos

Dr Matt has been practicing in Grimsby for over 18 years.  In 2002, he and his chiropractor wife, Dr Amy, fell in love with Grimsby and made it their home.  Since then they have had 4 beautiful children (at home with the Niagara/Lincoln Midwives), ages 8, 11, 13 and 15.  They are deeply involved in the community with school, coaching and church and are more passionate now about family health than they have ever been.

Dr. Matt’s Story

About Dr. Matt Barden

Dr Barden ProfileKnown as Dr. B in the office, he has long had an interest in the human body and how it works. During his final year of high school, he sustained a significant concussion while snowboarding, which pointed him in the direction of chiropractic for the first time. After experiencing complete resolution of his low back pain and migraine headaches, as well as learning about the importance of the spine and nervous system; he knew chiropractic was his calling. This led him to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Redeemer University where he graduated with Honours.

He then worked as a Kinesiologist at a local orthotic lab where he gained knowledge, training and a special interest in gait analysis and foot biomechanics. After spending a year there, Dr. B attended Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Dr. B is passionate about helping individuals live the healthy and abundant lives they were designed for. He has also taken additional courses in Thompson Technique, Activator Methods, Functional Neurology and is a certified provider of Tonal Integrative Correction (TIC). When he isn’t in the office, Dr. B loves to golf, cycle and enjoy quality time outdoors with his wife Krysten and their dog Daisy.
