Dr Amber Kenmuir DC
Amber has practiced as a chiropractor since 2015. She first started seeing a chiropractor when she was 16 due to knee pain she was having while figure skating. She had tried massage and physiotherapy but nothing was helping. After seeing her chiropractor for a few visits her knee pain went away but also the daily headaches she had been suffering from also went away.
While chiropractic was not the first profession she pursued after graduating high school, she eventually found her way and wanted to provide the same care and relief to others who were suffering like she was. Amber loved caring for patients of all ages and has a special love for little ones and pregnant mommas. She also loves working with athletes of all ages and abilities.
Training and Education
While she was at chiropractic school, she did an advanced certificate in extremity management, meaning additional training in care of feet, knees, shoulders, elbows, and wrists. She also attended many seminars in caring for the pediatric population, and became basic certified in the Activator Technique in her third quarter of school.
After graduating, Amber practiced in Edmonton until the ocean and family called her home. She practiced in Nanaimo before moving to the big city in May 2021. Being in the city provides increased opportunities to serve in her community, but also importantly brings her closer to family that live in the area.
While not at work you can find Amber in nature hiking, trail running, or mountain biking, or she may be found on her couch engrossed in a new book!
