Career and experience
With a special interest in sports and exercise related back pain and injuries Dr. Martynuik has treated professional hockey players, professional snowboarders & skiers, professional bikers, professional golfers, personal trainers and fitness instructors, endurance athletes, and fitness competitors while operating his practice within Collingwood since 2009.

In 2020 Dr. Martynuik relocated and re-branded his practice as Muscle & Spine with the intention of creating a practice that would combine the best of medical, chiropractic, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture and exercise rehabilitation to address common spine and related muscle conditions. He is also focused on training and mentoring young practitioners to become successful and caring clinicians.
After nearly 20 years of clinical experience, Dr. Martynuik’s practice follows the philosophy that treatment is most successful when patients are engaged and motivated to reach personal goals rather than just reacting to pain with passive care.
