Dr. Emily McManus – DC

Dr. Emily McManus

Dr. Emily McManus has been practicing in the lower mainland since 2013. She knew she would be a chiropractor after her first adjustment at the age of 12. She loves that chiropractic respects and honours the body’s capacity for self-healing and decided she wanted to inspire others in the same way.  Dr. Emily considers herself a family chiropractor and tends to attract women seeking chiropractic care and improved quality of life for their prenatal through postpartum periods and beyond. She also sees many newborns and children to support their optimal spinal alignment, overall health and biomechanical development.

Dr. Emily has a background in kinesiology as well as hospital administration. Prior to becoming a Chiropractor she worked in several of Canada’s top pediatric hospitals. She believes we benefit most when we take a broad view and proactive approach to optimizing health; she loves inspiring people to live their lives in more aligned ways when it comes to their health.

When she’s not adjusting, Dr. Emily and her husband, Kevin, and their two sons can be found enjoying the great outdoors of BC – hiking, camping, swimming, or skiing – and when has time to herself she still enjoys playing the piano, meditating and writing.

Dr. Emily is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (www.icpa4kids.com) and is trained in the Webster technique.
