Meet Dr. Nancy Salgueiro, B.Sc., D.C., F.I.C.P.A.

Choosing the Right Path

I knew I chose the right path when I attended my first pediatric seminar. Understanding why chiropractic is most important for children triggered my passion for helping families reach their fullest potential.”

Dr. Nancy headshotDr. Nancy Salgueiro always knew her passion was helping others. Her first job was as a home care worker, caring for the elderly and disabled children. This experience and volunteering in the emergency room led her to pursue health care as a career, originally planning on becoming a physician.

After beginning her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Manitoba, Dr. Nancy could no longer stand the chronic mid back pain and migraines she suffered from.

“Since junior high school I suffered from excruciating migraines, they interfered with school and my ability to spend time with family and friends.” On the advice of friends, she started chiropractic care. “The back pain and migraines went away, and I soon realized what it meant to feel great. I continue my chiropractic care because I want to feel this fantastic all the time. I love it!”

The Human Body is Meant to be Healthy

As she continued her university studies, focusing on science and the human body, and through the education she received from her chiropractor, she realized “the human body is meant to be healthy and it makes much more sense to support normal function then to mask symptoms with drugs.” This realization and the great success she had with her own chiropractic experience led Dr. Nancy into her chiropractic career.
