Surbjit Herr D.C.
I am a native of Nepean and after living away from the city for approximately 10 years, realized that Nepean is where I wanted to start my family and continue to build my roots in the community. People often ask why I chose to become a chiropractor and my response is that I believe chiropractic chose me.
My mother suffered from chronic migraines and had been tested by many doctors. No one could seem to help. She was at the end of her rope, but then a friend suggested my Mom see a chiropractor. She got a check-up and the doctor told her that he could help. I was there when my Mom received her first adjustment and over time her headaches got less painful and less often. That’s when I decided that this was what I wanted to do; I wanted to help people.
I started my journey in health by studying Human Kinetics at Saint Francis Xavier University. While there, I became a personal trainer & Certified Fitness Consultant with the goal of using my knowledge to help people when I became a chiropractor. As a former provincial and national athlete, I realized how important optimal function was for peak performance. I love to help people that are suffering or frustrated with their health. My goal is to help adults and children experience more energy, better sleep, less pain, and a better quality of life.
While providing chiropractic care for children, I have earned my advanced certification in prenatal and pediatric care. This program is offered through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and allows chiropractors to address the very specific needs of children and pregnant women. I have also earned my certification in the Webster Technique, a development in prenatal care that can reduce dysfunction in the lower spine throughout pregnancy. In turn, this can ease the birth process for women, especially in the event of breech birth.
“I find my inspiration from the wonderful and sometimes miraculous changes in my patients’ health. Whether it is someone suffering from years of pain being able to enjoy the quality of life with their families again or helping children regain their health so that they can live to their full potential, I live for these moments.”
Life outside the office has me spending time with my wife and three young children, coaching and playing hockey. I’m active in teaching and running health and fitness workshops for our community. I have also helped out with local charities such as Ausome Ottawa, The Children’s Wish Foundation, Nepean Women’s Shelter, Nepean Humane Society, Barrhaven Food Cupboard, and Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart Program.
2016 marks a decade since I became a Chiropractor and I am amazed at ten years have passed. I am also excited about the future of being a partner in families’ journeys to better health.
I am a native of southern Ontario, growing up on the shores of Lake Huron. I have since made Greely my home with my husband and our two children. One thing that never changed was my love of water and now I spend the bulk of the summer weekends on our boat on the St. Lawrence River.
My passion for the power of chiropractic began after a skiing accident on a school trip in 1984. After the more "traditional" forms of treatment were unsuccessful, a friend of the family recommended Chiropractic to me. It was amazing! Not only did it help me with the tailbone injury from the accident, but it also helped with my chronic headaches and migraines. On top of that, I was able to focus better in school! Since then I have been a regular patient, as have all of my family. My role as Office Manager at Capital Chiropractic has truly been a blessing to me. Our patients are all incredibly special and feel like an extended family to me!
