Dr. Micheline Cote has been in active practice in the GTA for 35 years. She is passionate about helping her patients achieve better health with chiropractic care.

To accomplish this, she believes a better understanding of the positive benefits chiropractic care goes a long way in our quest for better health.

This is why in 2005 she wrote and published her book “Pain Or No Pain; The Chiropractic Connection”; it is a simple explanation of chiropractic care beyond what is commonly known. Throughout the book are stories of real patients who might have suffered from problems similar to your own.

Dr. Cote has been active in her professional associations as she was a founding member of the Halton Peel Chiropractic Society in 1987 and served as its Vice President for over 10 years. She also served on several committees of the Ontario Chiropractic Association and was a Director on the board of the Chiropractic Awareness Council from 2006 to 2009.

Having used a gentle instrument technique called Activator Methods since her graduation in 1982, she became an Associate Clinical Instructor 15 years ago and has been helping other chiropractors use this very valuable approach to subluxation correction.

Dr. Cote and her husband Dr. Steve Soloduka, also a Chiropractor, have been part-time residents of Collingwood since 1997, appreciating all it has to offer. It is why the couple continue providing their services in the area they love so much. 

You might find interesting that Micheline is fluent in both English and French, both her father and father-in-law were Chiropractors, Steve’s brother is in the profession, as is one of Micheline’s uncles. You could say that it’s all in the family. That might be why their daughter Julie decided to pursue a career in chiropractic as well.

Micheline and Steve’s son Max, who has grown up on a pair of skis, worked as a ski instructor at Blue for a few years.
