Dr. Carole Smith
Doctor of Chiropractic, Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Provider, Doula, Clinic Director
I graduated with clinic honours from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto, where I am currently on faculty. I am certified in contemporary medical acupuncture (McMaster University), and also have experience treating patients with a variety of different muscle release and instrument assisted soft-tissue techniques.
My treatment experience includes a variety of patient conditions, including sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, chronic conditions, as well as car accidents and other traumas. Of particular interest to me is the treatment of women’s health related concerns (including pregnancy and dysmenorrhea), as well as a variety of pediatric concerns in infants and children. I am Webster certified and have done continuing education with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. As a CAPPA trained Doula, I often attend births as well as teach workshops on pre- and post-natal wellness care for pregnant moms and their newborn babies and families.
My diverse experience allows me to treat you for a variety of issues including, but not limited to, headaches, back, neck, and joint pain, sprains and strains, TMJ (jaw) issues, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, and stress. I am always happy to discuss treatment options for your individualized conditions.
I worked for 12 years as an IBI therapist for children with autism, both privately as well as centre-based at Erinoak in Halton and Peel. My background working with a variety of special needs patients in a wide range of clinical settings includes a year interning at the Muki Baum Children’s Center in Toronto doing chiropractic and rehabilitation for the dual diagnosis students at the center. I continue to have a significant interest in treating a variety of special needs conditions in my current practice, including children with autism or other developmental and physical delays.
I received music and academic scholarships to attend Simon Fraser University and hold a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in psychology with a focus on children with autism. As an accomplished bagpipe player, I have competed in various bagpipe competitions across North America and Scotland, including winning two World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.
I am a proud member of the Canadian Chiropractic Association, Ontario Chiropractic Association, College of Chiropractors of Ontario, Canadian Contemporary Acupuncture Association, International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, and faculty at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.
