Do you wish that the Chiropractic profession in Canada could be less marginalized; that we could all be a more integral part of the mainstream of our health-care system?

Brenda Miller had been suffering from debilitating back and leg pain since her vehicular accident in 2005. She was having difficulty walking and was constantly taking a cocktail of pain medications – Baclofen, Naproxen, Cymbalta, Pregabalin, Percocet, even Marijuana – just to help her manage through the day. Her condition has significantly affected her mobility that she had to quit her job and go on the Ontario Disability Support Program.

After many years of meetings to review feasibility issues, the Manitoba Chiropractors Association, the Manitoba Provincial Government (Family Services Department) and Mount Carmel Clinic (MCC) in inner-city Winnipeg eventually came to an agreement. They agreed that the inclusion of chiropractic services at MCC would be a welcome addition to the current health services provided there.
Drs. Megan and Mailie Harris have taken almost the exact same path in their careers, albeit at different times. They went to the same university, took the same program, held the same summer jobs, operated a business together, went to the same chiropractic college, and now work in the same clinic. When it comes to practice, however, each sister assumes her own identity.
