Ajax Chiropractor- Dr. Karen Beal

An Amazing Chiropractic Experience

Dr. Beal shares – “When I was a student attending the University of Toronto, I had headaches and neck pain on a daily basis. My boyfriend (now husband) suggested that I go see a chiropractor. Upon my visit, the chiropractor examined my spine and could tell that malposition of the bones in my neck was causing my pain. After 1 month of adjustments, my body was pain free. That was when I decided that I wanted to become a chiropractor.”

The Chiropractic Journey

Dr. Beal began her pre-chiropractic education at the University of Toronto where she studied the basic sciences courses. These included inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, calculus, biology, along with physiology and anatomy. After completing a Bachelor of Life Sciences (4 year) degree, she entered the Masters programme at the University of Toronto, Department of Zoology. Her research involved the cytochemical study of the pancreas cells in a fish model.

“I believe that everyone has the right to feel amazing, happy and full of energy. You deserve it, and your family deserves it. We can make a difference in the well-being of the world by being healthy. I hope that I can be a source of inspiration to you to live your best life yet! If not now…when?”

Dr. Messmer loves being back in home in Canada, and living close by to her family and friends in South Ajax.

“I believe in a holistic approach to natural health care because I have experienced first-hand the wonderful effects of regular Chiropractic care and eating a well balance diet. Chiropractic should play a fundamental role in everyone’s life in order to optimize health and the overall function of the body. The body has a natural ability to heal itself and Chiropractic enhances this ability by removing stresses from spine and allowing the nervous system to function to its full potential. I feel amazing today and rarely ever get sick thanks to regular chiropractic adjustments”.
