Dr. Heather Bailey
Dr. Bailey graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2012 with both honours and clinical honours. Her undergraduate degree is in Human Kinetics (Kinesiology) from the University of Windsor.
Her first position as a Chiropractor found her working in downtown Toronto where she worked alongside a family doctor, physiatrist, orthopedic surgeons (specialising in knees and feet), kinesiologist and personal trainers.
She has a very strong exercise and rehabilitation background, and believes the key to any successful recovery comes with changing how the body works through exercises. She also stays up to date on current research and "best-evidence" practices.
In July of 2015, Dr. Bailey took part in the PanAm Games as part of the volunteer medical staff, providing chiropractic services as well as assisting the first responders for the athletes, coaches and owners at the Caledon Horse Park.
She has also been involved with Junior "A" hockey team, The Bradford Rattlers, since the 2016-2017 season as the Team Doctor. She spent 3 of these seasons as trainer rink-side at home games.
Dr. Bailey is also a part of the Low Back Rapid Access Clinic, where patients receive rapid low back pain assessment (less than four weeks on average), education and evidence-based self-management plans. It is designed to decrease the prevalence of unmanageable chronic low back pain, reduce unnecessary diagnostic imaging as well as unnecessary specialist referral. It also aims to reduce wait times for specialist referral when necessary. It is a part of the Local Health Integrative Network and is OHIP funded (referrals to this particular program must be made through a family doctor who is registered with the Central LHIN).
She is a member of both the College of Chiropractors of Ontario and the Ontario Chiropractic Association.
Dr. Bailey maintains an example of a healthy lifestyle. She is an avid equestrian with 2 horses of her own. She competed in Three-Day Eventing with her 1998 born horse, Tessa (pictured). She is also a seasoned hiker and is always looking for new challenges. She can often be found on the trails with her dog, Sandy, who joins Dr. Bailey on all of her adventures!
