Meet The Doctors

Dr. Amerjit Dhillon, B.Sc. Microbiology, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Dhillon has practiced at McLeod Chiropractic for almost 19 years since opening the clinic December 02nd, 1998. He is also a long time resident of North Kildonan where he resides with his wife Sandy and their two children, son Sartaj and daughter Armaan. Dr. Dhillon currently is the Vice President of the Manitoba Chiropractors Association.

Dr. Dhillon's approach to chiropractic care for his patients has always been to tell his patients the truth in regards to their health. His approach is to provide patients what they need opposed to what they want. Some patients will access our office for what they call a "quick crack" without understanding the full nature of their condition. There is no "quick crack" at McLeod Chiropractic. A comprehensive history, examination, and X-ray analysis is performed and then a detailed report of findings is provided to the patient answering three fundamental questions a patient will have:

  1. What's wrong with me?
  2. How long will this take to correct?
  3. How much will this cost me?


At that point, it is now up to the patient to consider their options given the information provided. No two patient's conditions are alike and there is consequently no cookie cutter approach to their individual chiropractic care. There is no pressure tactics, no hand sell, or repeated calls to your home if you decide not to seek care. Not everyone is ready to initiate care, which is ok. But at least they have a better understanding of what has been causing their disease or current health concern. For those ready to initiate care, Dr. Dhillon provides 100% attention and focus on your care. Once stability has been achieved with your condition, Dr. Dhillon's attention will focus on wellness or maintenance care to prevent your condition from returning again. Our experience has been that those patients who participate in wellness care have fewer exacerbations and aggravations of the original condition that brought you to our office.

For those patients involved in a motor vehicle related accident or work related accident, our office can communicate with either MPI or WCB to initiate chiropractic care. A medical doctors referral or physicians note is not required by MPI or WCB to access chiropractic care. You can directly access chiropractic care. Dr. Dhillon can also proved information to these agencies in regards to time loss from work, loss of income, any specialized tests that maybe required, or referrals to other practitioners that maybe required. We know during any injury there can be hardships one may endure both physically and financially. Our goal is to help ease that burden to get you on the road to recovery.

Dr. Cynzia Virgilio, B.Sc., D.C., CAFCI

Doctor of Chiropractic and Acupuncture

Dr. Cynzia Virgilio was raised in the North Kildonan area of
Winnipeg, Manitoba. The chiropractic health field has fascinated her since she
was very young and after interning at a chiropractic office in her middle
years, her career choice became clear. Dr. Virgilio attended the University of
Winnipeg and obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. After graduation she moved
to Marietta, Georgia in the United States and attended Life University. She
graduated Magna Cum Laude as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2008.

Dr. Virgilio met her husband while in chiropractic school and
they moved to South Carolina to open their chiropractic & wellness office.
She became Board Certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners in
the United States and licensed in South Carolina by the S.C. Board of
Chiropractic Examiners. In 2012 they made the decision to move home to Winnipeg
in order to live closer to Dr. Virgilio's large Italian family. Dr. Virgilio
became a licensed chiropractor in Canada and a member of the Manitoba
Chiropractors Association.

Dr. Virgilio is experienced in the Activator technique and chooses
to utilize it for a large portion of her chiropractic practice. The Activator
is an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine or extremity joints and
allows her to treat complaints literally from head to toe. She is
constantly continuing her education throughout the fields of Chiropractic
Acupuncture and Allergy Elimination technique (N.A.E.T.).

N.A.E.T. is an allergy elimination technique that has
revolutionized the practice of medicine. Allergies
can cause symptoms such as pain, swelling, headaches, fatigue, and digestive or
skin problems. When you decide to eliminate your allergies
once and for all, this method provides an excellent chance of not just
improving your symptoms, but making them disappear alongside the need for
medications.

Dr. Virgilio is also pleased to offer Apollo
Cold Laser Therapy to treat a variety of pain syndromes. Apollo manufactures
one of the most powerful, FDA cleared, cold lasers on the market. Cold lasers
are painless, non-invasive, drug free pain management tools. They help heal a
wide range of chronic and acute syndromes and diseases such as Rotator Cuff
Tendinitis, Low Back Sprain/Strain, to Plantar Fasciitis.

Her goal is to provide you quality healthcare using an
integrative approach with a caring touch, while also empowering you to manage
your health day-to-day through education and prevention.
