Dr. Michael Hornick, D.C.




Dr. Michael Hornick has been a member of the Sutherland Chiropractic Health Care Clinic team since September 1995. He has thoroughly enjoyed his 20 years helping the Saskatoon community achieve better health and looks forward to 20 more. He feels very fortunate that he can still honestly say that he loves his job after all this time. His academic credentials include an Honours Genetics degree from the University of Western Ontario in 1990, a Diploma in Acupuncture from Sri Lanka’s World Health Organization recognized Acupuncture College in 1992, Clinical Honors degree from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1994, and recently a Diplomat in Chiropractic Pediatrics from the University of Wales. He married Dr. Stacey Lynn Hornick (nee Kramer) who is also an excellent chiropractor and the two of them have brought Benjamin and Max into the world. Dr. Mike has studied a large number of chiropractic techniques and has settled on providing four primary techniques in his chiropractic practice. Torque Release Technique (TRT), Diversified and CranioSacral Technique (CST). In his acupuncture practice he helps his patients achieve better health through treating Western diagnosis with Eastern acupuncture philosophy and care. When not with his family or at the clinic helping his patients you may find him on the golf course.


Dr. Ross Bodnar B. Sc, DC.

Dr. Ross Bodnar grew up in Saskatoon and attended the University of Saskatchewan, College of Kinesiology where he graduated with great distinction in 2013. During this time he also competed on the Huskies Track and Field team as a high and long jumper. After multiple sports injuries throughout his university career Dr. Bodnar found chiropractic adjustments to be extremely beneficial for his well being and athletic performance, which turned him towards a career in chiropractic. After his undergraduate degree, Dr. Bodnar attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, where he graduated in 2017. This was also where he discovered the benefits of acupuncture for injuries, as well as treatment of many other western medicine diagnoses. This led him to taking multiple acupuncture courses while in chiropractic college. Since graduating, Dr. Bodnar has moved back to Saskatoon and has practiced ever since. He believes each patient needs an individualized treatment plan to achieve their wellness goals, with a focus on adjustments, education, and physical activity. When Dr. Bodnar is not treating patients you can often find him outdoors riding a bike, fishing, hunting or volunteering with the Saskatoon Motocross club.


What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a healing science and art that is over 4000 years old and is the primary mode of health care for over 1 billion of the world's population. It affects the human body through tiny needles inserted into specific points which are able to initiate changes in the body to correct dysfunction. Acupuncture can treat a number of conditions. The reason that acupuncture can treat so many conditions is because the focus of the acupuncturist is on returning the body to balance. Essentially, the acupuncturist allows the body to heal itself.

What can I expect?

A common response to treatment is a deeper, more refreshing sleep. People are very surprised at how little discomfort the insertion of the needle creates. It may feel like a slight skin prick as the needle is inserted, this sensation usually diminishes completely after a few seconds. Often people find the treatment very relaxing, and it is not uncommon for people to fall asleep during a treatment.

How often will I be treated?

The number of treatments needed will depend on each person and condition. A change in health should be noticed immediately, within a few hours, or sometimes within a few days. Acute illness and chronic conditions will respond differently. Generally 3-5 treatments will indicate if you will respond or not.
