Meet Dr. Heather McDowell

Chiropractor Wellington, Dr. Heather McDowellFrom a young age, Heather understood the benefits of chiropractic. It was her family’s go-to solution for any injury. After being hurt playing soccer, the chiropractor got her back on the field. Since then, chiropractic was Heather’s chosen career. First, she attended the University of Waterloo. There, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Then, it was on to San Jose State University for a master’s degree in exercise physiology.

Expertise From Around the World

This experience caused Heather to fall in love with California. She enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose. There, Heather graduated cum laude as class valedictorian. Toward the end of her time there, she shadowed various chiropractors. These visits allowed her to see how others practiced. Heather completed an internship with Apple’s chiropractor, who treats the company’s employees.

Heather has taken additional studies. These include courses with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She is certified in both the Webster Technique and the PIPS Technique and is a member of the ICPA. Additionally, she is a certified kinesiologist.

With her love of travel, Heather has an appreciation for different cultures. Her adventures have taken her to India for a Palmer Clinic Abroad Program. She also lived in Newcastle upon Tyne in England.

Loving Life in Wellington

Heather and her husband John are loving life in the county. They welcomed their baby girl, Poppy, into the world and have enjoyed their new roles as parents. They also have three pets: Ruby, Royal and Zoey. Heather grew up in Newmarket. Her sister is a chiropractor in Nobleton.

In her spare time outside of County Chiropractic Centre, Heather loves being outside. She likes walking the dogs, going hiking, doing yoga, playing soccer and running.
