Come Meet Our Team
Dr. Alfin Mitha, Hons. B.Sc., D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
As a life-long resident of Brampton since 1974, Dr. Alfin Mitha endeavors to provide this city with reliable, informative Chiropractic care. He lives here with his 2 kids, Aura and Zen, and his wife Rupi. Having completed his Bachelor of Science degree in both Biology and Pharmacology at McMaster University, Dr. Mitha had the opportunity to work with Eli Lilly pharmaceuticals in their Research and Development of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Prozac. Deciding that the private sector in medicine was not for him, Dr. Mitha then took one year off to work in Ixtapa , Mexico as a land sports G.O for Club Med. Having considered Chiropractic in the past, it was only confirmed while having the chance to meet many Chiropractors during his time in Ixtapa.
The next part of his journey took him to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto , Ontario . During his education, he still maintained an active physical lifestyle while working as a personal trainer. His internship year provided him the opportunity to work at 2 very different and unique places. The first part of his internship was at Anishnawbe Health and Native Wellness Center which serviced much of Toronto ’s aboriginal and homeless community. The second part of his internship allowed him the chance to treat players of the Canadian National Soccer Team, and other elite Canadian athletes. Both of these placements allowed Dr. Mitha to understand many aspects of illness, injury and health. A focus which remains in his clinic; In GoodHands.
Having returned back to Brampton, he has since become an active member of the Rotary Club, Brampton Tennis Club, Brampton Volleyball League, Yoga instructor and more recently the Health Practioner Advisory Committee for the city. Dr. Mitha wishes to become a more integral part of Brampton’s community. “It is imperative that we take care of our body and mind, it is our most valuable asset. The first step is education and if anything else, we provide that for our patients”.

She uses a holistic approach in my treatments and a variety of therapeutic techniques to assist in the body’s self-healing and maximize it’s own health and efficiency.
Osteopathy requires the knowledge of anatomy, relation and function of each part of the human body, and is applied to correct the structures and imbalances. Treatments will improve mobility, reduce or remove pain while also easing restrictions and inflammation using, soft and effective techniques such as static joint play, muscle energy techniques (MET’s), soft tissue therapy, myofascial release, visceral manipulations, and craniosacral therapy. Osteopaths seek to get to the root cause of pain and dysfunction rather than to simply treat the symptoms!
