Meet Dr. Stephanie Knauer

Dr. Stephanie Knauer and Doug

Leading by Example

After high school, I was unsure of what career path I wanted to take. I was always interested in health care and decided that science would be a good place to start. I pursed a degree in Biology and Psychology with a focus in pharmacology at the University of Alberta.

Through the course of my undergraduate degree, a family member spoke of their experiences with a chiropractor and how their health and overall wellbeing had dramatically improved. Intrigued by their success, I researched and fell in love with the ideologies and techniques of Chiropractic. In 2012, I enrolled in the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and graduated in June of 2016.

On my first day of Chiropractic College, a classmate turned close friend said that one of the most important characteristics of a Chiropractor is “Leading by Example”- an idea I have truly taken to heart. I feel that in order to give my patients the best advice about their health, I need to take care of mine. To stay my best self, I run, spin and (very recently) practice yoga. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle for myself, I feel more confident in providing health advice to my patients.

Care for All

During my time at CMCC, I developed a keen interest in pre and postnatal chiropractic care.  I am formally trained in Webster Technique, which specializes in management of the pregnancy related pelvic and low back pain. I also have a special interest in the potential expansion of the chiropractic scope of practice to include prescription rights. I believe this would be an excellent way to combine modern medical treatments with traditional holistic techniques.

Outside of the Practice

Dr. Stephanie lives with her fiancée, Jamie, and dog Doug, in Edmonton. They enjoy travelling, being active, watching movies, and spending time with their friends and family.
