About Dr. Sarah Wild
I discovered the profession of chiropractic when I found relief for my chronic headaches after many years of trying different medications and therapies. Having been a patient myself, I can attest to how life changing chiropractic treatment can be. Prior to my chiropractic education, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy with Distinction at the University of Alberta. As an Occupational Therapist, I practiced in Calgary, Alberta; Miami, Florida; and Toronto, Ontario; working in a variety of areas including ergonomic assessment, outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation, and long term care. I then completed my chiropractic degree, graduating Cum Laude and with Clinic Honours from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. I strongly believe in continuous education and training to keep up-to-date with best treatment methods available. As such, I have complimented my chiropractic training with courses in Active Release Techniques, Activator Methods, Graston Technique, and Mulligan Mobilization. I am also a Certified Medical Acupuncture Provider and a Certified Pre- and Post-Natal Fitness Specialist. While I enjoy treating people of all ages and a variety of conditions, I have a special interest in pregnancy and post-pregnancy related conditions, pediatrics, as well as headaches and jaw pain.
I settled in Peterborough to be close to my family and I am so happy to call this wonderful community home. When I moved to Northern Manitoba from South Africa at 15 years old (+40C to -38C!), I had never heard of Peterborough! My education and career took me from Alberta to Florida and finally to Ontario, where I met my husband who was born and raised in Peterborough. My own family had moved to the Kawarthas just a few years earlier and so this city has been a perfect fit. My little girl, Hannah, was born in November, 2015, and I have been able to appreciate how important good health care and a great support system are. The resources in Peterborough for new families are outstanding, and I am so happy to be contributing to them. I am privileged to work with new families and hope that I positively influence the decisions they make about their personal health and the health of their young ones so that the next generation of children to have a vision of health and wellness that is beyond what we currently have. Away from the clinic, I enjoy going at Crossfit Ptbo, doing yoga, running, camping in the summertime, and trying new recipes. I also love spending time with our Bernese Mountain Dog pup, Lexi, out on the beautiful Peterborough trails.
