Dr. Andrea Petersen
Dr. Petersen is at CrowWest Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:00 - 1:00. She spends the rest of her practicing hours Monday to Friday at Spring Hill Chiropractic in Silver Springs.
Dr. Petersen began seeing a chiropractor in Calgary at the age of 15 when she was a member of the Canadian Junior National Luge Team. She found relief from her injuries as well as improvement in her sport performance following chiropractic treatment. This was her inspiration for pursuing a career in chiropractic. She went on to study biological science at the University of Calgary, followed by the Doctor of Chiropractic program at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Upon graduating, she provided locum coverage in rural Alberta, and British Columbia. She went on to open a practice in Prince George, British Columbia while she served as Director of Northern Health Region on the BC Chiropractic Association Board of Directors. She now once again resides in Calgary, a decision made to be closer to family and to provide care in the community that she grew up in.
She has a keen interest in athletics and family wellness-based care. Her specialties include manual adjusting, soft tissue techniques, Shockwave therapy, Activator and Sigma-Pro instrument techniques (gentle low-force techniques used to improve joint function and decrease pain). Her mission is to help improve people's health and wellness through evidence-informed chiropractic care and advice.
