Dr. Maranger is a graduate from the University of Ottawa, where he received an Honours Bachelor of Science with Specialization in Human Kinetics. Throughout his degree, he worked as a strength and conditioning coach with the Ottawa Mavericks volleyball club and a personal trainer specializing in training athletes.
Throughout this period as a strength coach, he quickly realized that many of the individuals he would work with also presented with various forms of painful movement disorders. This led him down the road of manual medicine and ultimately decided to pursue his Doctorate from New York Chiropractic College, where he graduated with academic honours and received an advanced certificate in Sports Science and Human Performance. Additionally, Dr. Maranger has specialized in neurofunctional acupuncture where he completed the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture and Advanced Neurofunctional Sports Practitioner program at McMaster University and is also certified in Active Release Technique (ART).
Dr. Maranger spent his last year of chiropractic school interning in Buffalo, NY. He had the fortunate opportunity to learn from the Buffalo Bills sports acupuncturist Dan Dominguez, a very influential mentor early on in his career.
Although he has a keen interest on mainly treating sports injuries, Dr. Maranger treats patients of all ages and all types of issues. Docteur Maranger est aussi parfaitement bilingue en Français et en Anglais.
