Meet Your Halifax Chiropractors

Chiropractors Halifax Dr. Doug Penrose and Dr. Karen Smith

Dr. Douglas J. Penrose, DC

Dr. Doug experienced the initial benefit of chiropractic care through his mother, who suffered with back pain for years.

After visiting multiple doctors and trying a number of “solutions,” her search took a turn to chiropractic.

Dr. Doug’s mother finally saw an improvement in her back pain, with it ultimately resolving—something no other doctor had been able to accomplish for her.

From that day forward, Dr. Doug knew that his true calling was to become a chiropractor, and ultimately decided to attend Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) for his studies.

With a love of working with his hands and a kind, helpful demeanor, Dr. Doug makes patients of all ages feel at ease as he promotes healing and spinal health. Read more »

Dr. Karen A. Smith, DC

After many years of playing competitive sports as a child and teenager, Dr. Karen began suffering from back pain around age 15.

At that time, she explored several healthcare options without success.

Due to her back pain, she was told that if she played university volleyball she would not be able to walk by the time she turned 30.

After hearing this, she decided to give Chiropractic care a try, and her results were amazing, allowing her to play varsity Volleyball for Dalhousie.

An even more impressive feat? She has surpassed 30 and had 2 children —with no back pain! Read more »
