Dr. Rebecca Blackburn’s interest in chiropractic began at a young age. As a dancer, she learned the importance of moving without restriction; it was chiropractic treatment that enabled her to keep training and performing at a high level, achieving her Advanced 2 Examination in Classical Ballet in 2003. This experience and a love of anatomy and physiology discovered while at Bluevale Collegiate encouraged her to pursue Kinesiology at McMaster University where she completed an Honours Bachelor of Science. From there, Dr. Blackburn went on to the rigorous four-year program at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and graduated top of her class in 2008.

Dr. Blackburn has a passion for an active lifestyle and loves to help patients of all levels along their fitness journey. Dr. Blackburn instructed group exercise and cycling classes for over 20 years, has worked as a Personal Trainer and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. During her time studying at CMCC in Toronto, Dr. Blackburn discovered the joy of running which led to many races, including the Boston Marathon and the New York City Marathon. Managing some injuries along the way inspired the addition of swimming and cycling to her repertoire. Dr. Blackburn has competed in numerous triathlons and raced in the Long Distance Triathlon World Championships in Sweden in 2015.

Dr. Blackburn is trained in numerous spinal and extremity adjusting techniques including Diversified (manual), Thompson (drop table) and Activator, which allows her to readily treat patients of all ages and abilities. For soft-tissue conditions such as muscle strains, ligament sprains, tendonitis and other overuse injuries, Dr. Blackburn incorporates myofascial release / Active Release Techniques® and is a Graston Technique® Specialist.

Using a new, custom-made manual flexion chiropractic table, along with other therapies, Dr. Blackburn can address low back pain due to tight muscles, facet joint compression, disc injuries and even lumbar spinal stenosis. Dr. Blackburn has extra education in the treatment of TMJ disorders as well as paediatrics, including torticollis and plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome). As a mom to a kindergartener, Dr. Blackburn has a lot to offer women at all stages of pregnancy and motherhood. Learn more about prenatal & postpartum chiropractic.

Beginning as a dancer and continuing through academic study and clinical practice, Dr. Blackburn has a keen interest in helping patients improve and reinforce their posture, both during static positions and in dynamic movement. All issues improve more quickly with exercise, so patients can expect an individualized prescription of rehabilitative strengthening and stretching to help them reach their health goals.
