The Doctors

Dr. Nicole Loucks B.H.K., D.C.

Dr. Nicole Loucks Chiropractor Peterborough Ontario

Originally from the Peterborough area it is an absolute honour and privilege to be practicing back in my home community. I was a competitive athlete growing up to which I competed provincially in gymnastics, baseball, volleyball as well as being a multi-sport athlete all throughout my youth. I was always fascinated with working with the human frame and helping others achieve excellence and a higher quality of life.

I was first introduced to chiropractic care in University when I completed my co op placement under the guidance of Dr. Keith Thomson in Peterborough Ontario. I had never been to a chiropractor before let alone worked alongside one, but I was always fascinated in health care and the human body, needless to say after one placement I knew my passion and purpose in life.

It was incredible witnessing daily aches and pains and symptoms that others perceive as “common” or “normal” dissolve (ie headaches, low back pain, knee pain, neck pain etc etc). It made me realize how important our spinal health and foundation we build on is for our human bodies and our future self. It opened my eyes to a new kind of doctor, a doctor I would strive to become so I could also help families and people of all ages live pain free

Following completion of my Bachelors of Human Kinetics I applied to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, ON. I was accepted and 4 years later I graduated with the title Doctor of Chiropractic in a pandemic! What a ride… but it led me back to where it all started here at Kawartha Family Chiropractic.

Throughout my education I took a special interest in pregnancy and post-natal care completing my GROWCo Certification focusing on pelvic floor rehabilitation. Pediatric Intraoral Soft Tissue therapy helping babies and mothers experiencing latching difficulties or any breastfeeding challenges. I also completed my Neurofunctional Acupuncture Certification through McMaster University in 2019. I have my level one SMART tools certification also and provide a variety of manual hands on care using diversified adjustments, arthrostim adjustments, Activator, exercise prescription, soft tissue therapy and more!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you and your family thrive!
