Meet Dr. Paul Taillefer

Lightbulb Moment

Dr. Paul Taillefer didn’t grow up wanting to become a chiropractor. He worked for a consumer packaged goods company and, after several years there, developed a kink in his back. His father, who was interested in natural healthcare, suggested he visit a chiropractor. Dr. Taillefer was skeptical but decided he had nothing to lose, so he went. After his first adjustment, he felt great. He began receiving care regularly and, after a couple of years, he knew he wanted to help others in the same way that he had been helped.


Dr. Taillefer completed a B Soc.Sc. Degree at the University of Ottawa and later pursued a B Sc. in Applied Chemistry and Biology prior to successfully completing the Doctor of Chiropractic Program at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto.

After graduating, he settled in Ottawa and opened Motion4Life with the mission of helping patients in the downtown area achieve optimal health.


Dr. Taillefer’s approach is founded and guided by evidence-based chiropractic and a wide range of techniques that further assist in healing and rehabilitation. In addition to the services he offers, he is FMS™-SFMA Level 2 Certified and TPI Level 1 Certified. Dr. Taillefer draws upon this knowledge to enhance his assessments in order to improve patient outcomes.

Passionate about offering techniques that will optimize his patients’ long-term health, Dr. Taillefer incorporates Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression, Active Release Techniques® into most care plans. Graston Technique®, Acupuncture, Interferential Current (IFC) or Therapeutic Ultrasound may be included where appropriate. These techniques are ideal for older patients or anyone who needs or prefers a gentle approach.

In addition to his private practice, Dr. Taillefer also practises chiropractic as a member of a multidisciplinary team of nurse practitioners and medical doctors within the primary care clinic located at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health in Ottawa.
