About Dr. David De Camillis
David De Camillis has been practicing since graduating from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic
College (CMCC) in 1977. By 1999, he had attained a fellowship in rehabilitation and a diploma in
McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). In 1999, he made a discovery and has since
been teaching and conducting research.
His seminars have been approved and endorsed for continuing credits by various professional bodies
such as the Registered Massage Therapists of British Columbia (RMTBC), the Canadian Sports
Massage Therapy Association (CSMTA), the College of Chiropractors of BC (CCBC), Central College
(Vancouver location), and the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists (BCAK). He has taught
internationally in Korea, Hong Kong, and Thailand.
His discovery in 1999 has resulted in a logical explanation why many musculoskeletal disorders exist.
It mainly concerns the lack of blood flow and oxygen supply to the affected parts of the body. A
second discovery several years later explains why posture distortions such as forward head
presentations exist. Because of these realizations, two proven mechanisms of action for assessing
and treating these conditions have emerged.
He presents two common pathophysiologies and their effects. He also presents assessment tools and
treatment methods. The clinical reasoning is elegant and simple. These ideas are so fundamental
they can be incorporated into what you are doing now. Every practitioner is unique in their methods like different ships in the harbour. This theory is like a compass that can be use by all.
The measurement of postural sway is uniquely in your scope of practice. We have developed a postural sway analyzer that records several parameters in quiet standing. You can use this in practice now and also for research purposes later.
