Dr. Erica Gifford
Background and Treatment Approach
My goal is to empower you through education and rehabilitation to take control of your health, decrease your pain and increase your motion. I practice using evidence-based care individualized to meet the goals and preferences of each individual patient. I treat with a hands-on approach using a variety of skills to meet each patient’s needs. My treatments include chiropractic manipulations and mobilizations, myofascial release techniques, acupuncture/dry needling, taping, instrument-assisted tools, rehabilitation exercises and education.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology at the University of Ottawa. I then went on to complete my Doctorate of Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto.
I enjoy treating a wide range of patients including office workers to high level athletes, with acute and chronic injuries.
