Dr. Sara O'Flaherty is also a graduate of Western States Chiropractic College. Since graduation in 2006, Dr. Sara has worked in family wellness centers in both Portland, Oregon and Boston, Massachusetts, where she has discovered that her true passion is to work with families and children. She moved to Nova Scotia in 2009 and that is when both Drs. Jeff and Sara opened ChiroCare.
She truly enjoys pediatric and prenatal chiropractic care and is working towards her advanced certification in pediatrics through the ICPA (www.icpa4kids.org). Dr. Sara also engages in holistic dietary treatment and she strives to offer effective natural care for patients with many chronic health conditions. Dr. Sara works closely with doulas, midwives, pediatricians and other healthcare professionals to ensure the greatest health benefit for her patients. She prides herself in being able to meet patient's needs and questions with her gentle, safe approach and easygoing demeanor. Dr. Sara is a big supporter of groups and organizations that allow parents to become well informed about the healthcare options for their family.
Since giving birth to a beautiful baby girl in 2016, she has a renewed passion to support mom, babies and families!
She enjoys education and finds that empowering her patients to take charge of their health is one of the most rewarding aspects of her job as a chiropractor. Her approach to patient care includes teaching patients to take an active role in their health by emphasizing proper ergonomics, nutrition, and incorporating stretching and light exercise into their everyday lives.
Though Dr. Sara often focuses on her pediatric and prenatal chiropractic practice, she fills much of her day treating those with headaches, back pain, sciatica, neck pain, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis and many other common aches and pains!
