Dr. Cecile Thackeray

Dr. ThackerayDr. Thackeray suffered from migraine headaches as a child after a fall. She received chiropractic care and got excellent results. Dr. Thackeray also saw many people she knew achieve positive outcomes with chiropractic.

Finding the Brain Fascinating

Dr. Thackeray originally wanted to become a pediatric neurosurgeon because of her interest in neurology and the brain. She knew, however, that not every child would survive brain surgery. Having to share such news with families deterred her from heading down that career path.

Luckily for me, I discovered chiropractic. I saw that this was a better way for me to communicate hope to people. The brain-body communication was an integral part of the healing of the body.

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

Dr. Thackeray earned a Doctor of Chiropractic from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. One of her favorite classes was anatomy, particularly when she was able to study the intricacies of the brain. Dr. Thackeray studied pediatrics through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Additionally, she studied communication so she could connect with her patients. “It was important to learn how to be empathetic and provide hope to my patients.”

Helping People Naturally

In 2020, Dr. Thackeray will be marking her 35th year in practice. “I still love what we do and particularly enjoy helping solve patients’ problems.”

One of the appeals of being a chiropractor for Dr. Thackeray is the ability to help patients without drugs or surgery. It’s highly fulfilling to work with patients and see them get better as the body helps itself in the healing process.
