Meet Dr. Clarence Haitsma

“I like helping people and solving problems. To have an opportunity to change the course of their life and see people get better is highly rewarding. I would like the chance to be part of your healthcare team!”

Experiencing the Benefits of Chiropractic

When he was a university student, Dr. Haitsma was involved in a car accident that resulted in him having horrible headaches. “They hurt so much. I was told by a doctor that I had a concussion but was just told to put ice on my head and take pills.”

Dr. Haitsma followed the doctor’s orders but still had raging headaches. Then one night, he met a chiropractor at his neighbor’s barbecue. “I told him my story and he said, ‘why don’t you come see me; maybe I can help you.'”

Though Dr. Haitsma didn’t know about chiropractic, he did know that what he was doing wasn’t helping that much. “The doctor that helped me was a classic chiropractor. He told me what he was doing and why and it made a lot of sense to me. That experience changed my life and I decided to become a chiropractor.”

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

To prepare for his career, Dr. Haitsma earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Even after all his years of practicing, he remains passionate about developing his skill set. He has the following credentials:

Dr. Haitsma also has achieved certain levels of proficiency in the Activator® instrument. He also uses the Impulse iQ®.

Helping Patients Reach Their Potential

Dr. Haitsma finds it fulfilling to have a role in helping people to achieve their greatest potential.

Chiropractic is part of the healthy lifestyle puzzle; we don’t have all the answers but have a very important role to play.


Enjoying an Active Life

When he’s not at the practice, Dr. Haitsma loves gardening and tending his flowers. An avid hiker and fly fisherman, he and his wife Veronica enjoy exploring the trails and rivers of Southwest Alberta. One of their favorite spots is the Crowsnest Pass area. He also enjoys spending time with his wife of over 40 years. Their daughter and son-in-law live in New York City and they have another son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren that live nearby so they enjoy getting together with them often.
