Dr. Jacquelyn Nicholls grew up in Lindsay with a family deeply involved in the social, political and economic aspects of the community. A competitive dancer while growing up, she eventually chose York University for a double major in Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. Nicholls went on to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College for her four year Doctor of Chiropractic. During this time she also went to McMaster University to study under Dr. Alejandro Elorriaga Claraco MD, learning Contemporary Medical Acupuncture.
For a time she lived in Alberta to work with the Alberta Ballet Dancers and also had her own private practice. Now, as of 2017, Nicholls is home in Lindsay and has opened the multidisciplinary Adelaide Clinic, which showcases techniques in Chiropractic and Neurofunctional Acupuncture along with state of the art Nutraceuticals. She also provides space for other practitioners, in acupuncture, massage, rehabilitation and kinesiology services, therapeutic dry cupping and reflexology.
“There is something amazing about being home in a community that knows you,” she says of her return to Lindsay. Her clinic location at 1 Adelaide St N., is also her home. “This is significant for me as home is a place where restoration occurs, a place of safety and comfort — all of this I strive to create for my patients.”
Nicholls says she thrives on treating whole families, or aiding someone who has had pain for years. Direct billing is also offered to over 12 different extended health insurance companies.
“I love being a Chiropractor as it allows me to solve difficult problems with creativity. It is a non-invasive, hands-on health care profession. I often tell patients if two bones are coming together to make a joint and it hurts; chiropractic is for you.”
Nicholls says her intent is to “create a lasting relationship of trust and care, assisting you to achieve happy, fulfilled and active life.”
