This was followed with a 3-year sports fellowship specialization, FRCCSS(C), from CMCC.

    As a sports specialist he has travelled with the Canadian Men's Bobsleigh and Skeleton Teams on the World Cup Circuit, worked for the Pan Am Games, Canadian Winter Games as well as Ontario Summer & Winter Games. Dr. Hudson was the team Chiropractor for a AAA Women's Hockey Team, the Swiss National hockey team and worked at the Women's World Hockey Championships numerous times.

    An athlete himself, Nigel has played football, rugby, hockey and field lacrosse as well as rowing at Western University, run a few road marathons, trail marathons, half marathons and a 50km Ultra, 2 half and 2 full Ironman races, 100km, 50km, 40km and 24 hours mountain bike races as well as 36 hour adventure races and adventure runs (he gets bored easily and change disciplines a lot)!   However, through all his own experience racing and competing at different sports, working with multiple sports teams in many disciplines, as well as my sports specialization and anatomy knowledge, I have become very good at diagnosing and treating sports injuries of the extremities (shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet!)

    Dr. Hudson looks forward to meeting people of Alliston and area and figuring out challenging sport injuries as well as the everyday ordinary spinal issues we all succumb to through wear and tear and aging.
