LaHave River Chiro & Health Centre - Our Team: Dr. Laurel Cowie

Dr. Laurel Cowie

Dr. Cowie has been living in and practicing chiropractic in Nova Scotia since 1990. After graduating from chiropractic college in Toronto, she took over an existing practice and has loved every minute here. She grew up in health-oriented family where her father was a chiropractor. "I found it amazing that patients here in Nova Scotia were so like the ones in my Dad's practice where I worked on Saturday mornings as a secretary. Hard-working, sincere, with love of their homes and families."

Dr. Cowie enrolled in chiropractic college somewhat late in life! She had already worked for fifteen years as a counsellor in community colleges helping people make changes in their careers and wanted to help people in an even more important way with their health and wellness. Not withstanding the late start, she graduated cum laude from clinic internship.

Dr. Cowie has served on the regulating body for chiropractic in Nova Scotia for many years in various capacities. She is the recipient of the Chiropractor of the Year award from Nova Scotia and of the Award of Merit for service to the profession from the Canadian Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Cowie lives in Bridgewater with her husband, Bill Pyke, a cabinet-maker, and Winston the canary. She likes to go up to camp at Kedge and to sail with Bill on Ra.

Shelby Adams

LaHave River Chiro & Health Centre - Our Team: Shelby Adams

Shelby grew up and has lived along the beautiful South Shore's beaches all her life. Following from being a hairstylist in her early years, she graduated from the Medical Office Administration Program at NSCC in 2012. She pursued her career working for another great Chiropractor in the Bridgewater area. Shelby then took time to raise her girls and worked closer to home for a few years. She is now so grateful that she's back in the chiropractic home. "I truly believe showing your support with a big smile on your face helps with the healing of patients when they come in the clinic."

In Shelby's free time she's with her two beautiful girls, going back and forth to ballet, and enjoying some time four wheeling in the woods.
