Dr. Tara Brown, D.C. Doctor of Chiropractic

dr tara brownDr. Tara Brown is excited to be a new member of the Momentum Health Team.

Dr. Tara’s philosophy of healthy living has been instilled since a very young age. Her entire family has participated in competitive sports and each still compete at a high level, especially in alpine skiing. Dr. Tara’s sister earned a ski scholarship and her brother is currently on the Canadian Alpine Ski Team. Dr. Tara ski-raced competitively, but now stays in shape by running road races at the 10K and half marathon distances. Dr. Tara most recently competed in the Scotiabank Waterfront Half-marathon in Toronto, where she ran her personal best in a time of an hour and 33 minutes.

Dr. Tara understands the significance of maintaining a healthy functioning body, not only for sport at an elite level, but for everyday activities in general. When a ski injury hampered her performance at 14 years of age, Dr. Tara turned to a chiropractor to help her recover. This gave Dr. Tara the passion and drive to become a chiropractor herself as she wanted to provide the same quality of care to others.

Dr. Tara began her pursuit of health and wellness by attending the University of Western Ontario earning a Honors Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology. She then attended the rigorous 4 year Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) program in Toronto to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Tara graduated with clinic honors and further enhanced her skills and education by attaining certification in Active Release Techniques®, Graston® Techniques, and Contemporary Medical Acupuncture. Therefore, Dr. Tara has a number of tools to be able to help patients recover from injury and get them on the path to wellness.

Dr. Tara gained valuable experience both within and outside of her education. While interning at the Bronte Harbour Chiropractic Clinic in Oakville, and the Sherbourne Health Centre located in downtown Toronto, Dr. Tara was exposed to a variety of complicated medical conditions and patient injuries. Dr. Tara has been part of the multidisciplinary medical team at various sporting events that included the Running Room & Mountain Equipment Co-op 10K challenges, Kid’s Health Day, Nik Zorcic Foundation Dawn ‘Til Dusk Ski Challenge, as well as part of the prestigious International Children’s Games 2013, in Windsor, ON.

Dr. Tara looks forward to working with her patients to reach their optimal health potential!
