Dr. Emily Wiggin BA RYT TPI DC
Dr. Emily Wiggin is a native of Dartmouth, NS and has been practicing in her hometown since August, 2013. She began her journey into chiropractic after completing her undergraduate degree in Physical Anthropology and Archaeology from Memorial University in Newfoundland, where she developed a fascination with the human body. Honing in further on this interest, she entered the Doctor of Chiropractic program at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College where she graduated in 2013 with clinic honours.
A former varsity athlete, Dr. Wiggin enjoys involvement in various athletic communities in the region. She volunteered as a trainer with the Whaler’s Bantam Major Hockey team for two years (2014-2016) in addition to being member of the Hockey High Performance medical staff for the 2015 try outs and challenge cup for U-14 boys with Hockey Nova Scotia. Dr. Wiggin has also served as the Chair of Medical Services for the Sidney Crosby Hockey School since its inception in 2015.
Dr. Wiggin has a specific passion for the world of golf fitness and swing development. Working alongside several local golf teaching professionals, she develops comprehensive training programs and treatment protocols designed to correct physical limitations in order to optimize swing dynamics. It is a great adjunct to the role of the teaching professional in creating break-through performance. Dr. Wiggin completed her Titleist Performance Institute Certification in California, where she trained under elite level fitness, medical and golf professionals who work with the top names in golf. Using the TPI movement screen and her knowledge of swing mechanics, she identifies mobility and strength deficits in her clients. She has served as the official Chiropractor and Sport Sciences Consultant to the Nova Scotia Golf Association since 2015 and works with the athletes on both the Provincial Junior and Development teams. Dr. Wiggin’s clients range from the weekend golfer to the touring professional, all of which have benefited from a committed training regimen.
When she is not treating patients at Kinesis Health, Dr. Wiggin can be found spending time with her partner, Jeff, and two daughters, Avery and Kate. She is also committed to working on her fitness in addition to hitting the golf links in the summertime.
Dr. Wiggin has an overall passion for helping people reach their health and lifestyle goals and she is always looking for new avenues to deliver her message of health and well-being to the community. Being part of an integrated health team at Kinesis Health Associates was the next step in that journey. She loves to treat a wide array of chiropractic patient subsets and is always looking to develop and expand her knowledge base and skill to provide them with exceptional care.
