Dr. Nicole Laird
Chiropractor, DC, BScKin
Nicole grew up in Saskatchewan, where she trained heavily in cheer and gymnastics. She decided to pursue chiro after a back injury in her youth introduced her to manual therapy, which sparked an interest in learning more about the human body.
She completed her Bachelor’s of Kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan, before pursuing her Doctor of Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. Nicole has received additional education in acupuncture, dry needling, and Functional Range Conditioning.
Nicole developed a passion for climbing while living in Toronto. She now enjoys bouldering and sport climbing, and gets outdoors whenever possible. She attended the Canadian Medical Climbing Symposium in 2023 in order to help treat climber specific injuries and improve performance.
Nicole’s treatment style involves an individualized, rehab focused approach. She utilizes manual therapy to increase mobility, decrease pain, and restore function. Then gives exercises and modifications to strengthen tissues, and get you back to doing what you love. She highlights establishing clear, achievable goals in both the short and long term. Nicole works with the entire body as a whole, and has a special interest in treating hand, shoulder, and knee injuries.
When she isn’t working, Nicole enjoys climbing ( you will probably see her around the gym), yoga, skiing, and hiking with her dog, Ahri. She is also an avid reader, and has a problem putting a book down once she has started.
