Dr. Darrell J. Morin, B Sc, DC
Welcome to my bio! I graduated from U of Alberta with a B.Sc. in biochemistry. I loved biochemistry so much I almost pursued a career in it. After some thought I realized I enjoyed working with people much more than microscopes. I still find that background very helpful when counseling patients on nutrition. There is so much misinformation out there. A solid science background helps one separate the wheat from the chaff quickly when providing nutrition advice. I then went to chiropractic school in Portland Oregon. I really enjoyed my four years there; great school and lots of hiking, swimming and mountain biking.
I have been in practice here at South Edmonton Chiropractic for 22 years and love it. There is a tremendous void in common sense in our society as it relates to issues in nutrition, physical activity and life style. It's great to be able to fill that gap in knowledge with information that is not influenced by drug companies or selling a product. We do carry a few common supplements but mostly I refer to other practitioners or stores where services or products can be accessed if required.
In my off time I like to train for triathlons and have completed several small triathlons and three Iron Man events; two in Canada and once at the World Championships in Kona Hawaii. Priorities have shifted to my wife Sarah and our three boys in recent years. My more senior patients and long time wellness clients are quick to point out that children don't stay young for long so cherish every moment. I feel blessed to have such wonderful people who come to our office and for all the advice I often receive in return!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the website. If we seem like a good fit for your health care needs then I'll see you soon; if not, feel free to ask a question on-line or sign up for the health tips that are updated every month. The part of our website that I love the most is the Wellness Blog. I really love researching health topics and sharing them with people. I find that I don't always have time to tell each patient all that they may benefit from (plus it's a tad boring repeating the same thing). The wellness section changes every week or two and is usually focused on nutrition. They are great and may enhance or even save your life or the life of someone you love, so pass it on.
Warm Regards, Dr. Darrell

Dr. Boston Langley, B Sc, DC
Dr. Boston Langley was born and raised in Edmonton, playing both hockey and baseball during his youth. Seizing an opportunity to play baseball in the United States, Dr. Langley took flight to Kansas, playing in the Jayhawk Baseball Conference. This opportunity led Dr. Langley to receive a scholarship to Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. Throughout his career however, Dr. Langley was plagued with injuries which were only managed and maintained through the help of Chiropractic Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree, Dr. Langley trained high level athletes at a sports performance clinic in Orlando, Florida. It was there he observed consistent dysfunctional movement that only seemed to be corrected when his clients saw a Chiropractor. This pushed Dr. Langley to pursue his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida.
It is through personal and professional experience that Dr. Langley derives his passion for not only correcting but maintaining proper spinal alignment. This helps to maintain proper neurological function to the muscles and organs of the human body, decreasing the overall stress on the patient's body and nervous system. Chiropractors are spinal specialists, capable of assessing and removing interference from the nervous system, promoting optimal health and wellness for the patient. If you feel that muscular dysfunction due to nerve interference is impacting your day to day quality of life or athletic pursuits, Chiropractic care is the change that your body needs.
