Dr. Jordan Morton found his way into Naturopathic Medicine after growing up with a passion for using his body in sports, combined with a deep curiosity for how the body works. After graduating from the University of Victoria with a biology degree and minor in hispanic studies, he took some time off before deciding what to do next. In that time, he completed his yoga teacher training and was hired at Backfit where he worked as a decompression technician and spinal technician for Dr. Doyle. His time at Backfit made a huge impact on his appreciation for musculoskeletal medicine and patients dealing with chronic pain.
While chiropractic would have been a great choice for further education, naturopathic medicine contained such a wide range of tools to use for helping people, that was ultimately his choice. So after a year and a half working alongside the Backfit team, he was off to the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine.
While at Boucher, Dr. Morton helped establish a yoga club to help stressed out students, participated in the student association, and was student representative for the provincial association (BCNA). Upon graduation, Dr. Morton won the Dr. Nicole Robinson Memorial Scholarship, as well as the Spirit of Boucher award.
Since beginning his career at Backfit, Dr. Morton has done extensive training for regenerative injections, including a year-long prolotherapy mentorship with Dr. Tyna Moore, DC, ND from Oregon. He also completed a year-long ultrasound mentorship program with Dr. Frank Johnson, MD and Sports Medicine Ultrasound Canada.
Outside of his time in the clinic, Dr. Morton keeps busy training for ultramarathons, cooking delicious vegan meals, playing hockey, hiking and trying to squeeze in a round of golf now and then! He and his wife, Kait, are expecting their first child!
