Napanee Chiropractor | Dr. Troy Nugent

Chiropractic Education


I decided to pursue chiropractic as a career while I was completing my undergraduate degree. I was drawn to a healthcare field that would allow me to help people through natural means (without drugs or surgery). I also knew that I was looking for the kind of practice where I could enjoy a truly personal and rewarding relationship with my patients. It was my conclusion that chiropractic was the perfect fit, and I’ve celebrated that decision every day since!


The first degree I earned was was a bachelor’s of science in kinesiology. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Ottawa in 1998. Next, I gained entrance to one of the most highly esteemed chiropractic colleges in the world – the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, Ontario. Here, the rigorous 4 year program of study prepared me well for future practice.

My goal is to provide the highest quality chiropractic care in a warm, friendly, and understanding atmosphere.

I simply aim to treat others the way that I would like to be treated. I respect every patient’s individual treatment goals and work within their comfort zone.


I was married to my wife, Christina, in June 2002. Our family has since expanded to include a son and a daughter. We take great pride and enjoyment in involving our children with the many local activities and experiences. Whether its a walk through local parks, or cheering them on at various sport events, family is so very important to me. This value fits nicely with our clinic name. At Family First Chiropractic, we value you and your family’s health because we know that optimal health is key to enjoying what life has to offer.
