MY CHIROPRACTOR'S STRONGER THAN YOURS
DR. LAURA ROWE
Dr. Laura Rowe knows what it takes to be healthy and feel great. Her lifestyle epitomizes the fitness and healthy habits that she preaches to her patients. As a mother of 2 children and chiropractor in Cornell for over 20 years, she has seen it all - personally, and in the lives of her patients - and has figured out the secret of how to feel great.
Too many people go through life living with pain and discomfort, stressed to the max with no thought that their bodies can feel better.. Upon meeting Dr. Laura, you'll know she has it figured out. She has competed in many multi-day, international adventure races, as well as 3 Boston Marathons, multiple trail ultra-marathons and cycling races of 50-400miles. If you live in Markham, you will have seen her training on the road, trails or in the gym. She knows what it's like to be injured, and she knows what it's like to balance work, children and fitness. Most importantly, she knows how to use her many years of experience and expertise to help you maximize your health. Dc.
