Meet Dr. Emily Andersen

Dr. Andersen’s first chiropractic experience happened when she was only 16. She had been suffering constant headaches for two years. Within two months, the headaches had greatly improved and her body seemed to be working better. She was soon considering a career in chiropractic.

Chiropractic played a valuable role in her own maternity and labour care. She raised her children on chiropractic care from birth. Children of chiropractors are statistically healthier and take far fewer medications than the general population. She found that to be true in her own family. Dr. Andersen has always enjoyed working with maternity patients and helping them raise their infants and children in a healthy way.

She has practiced in Mississauga since 1990. She is an eclectic practitioner, taking effective procedures from many different technique methodologies and blending them into her own unique approach. Dr. Andersen also uses the Activator Method Technique, having achieved advanced rating for 30 years. She also provides First Line Therapy, a nutritional counselling program highly regarded for therapeutic lifestyle intervention.
