Dr. Emily Watters has a lifelong passion for learning, having graduated cum laude with departmental honors from the University of Oregon with Bachelors of Science in Psychology and General Science, and minors in Biology and Chemistry. She then continued her education at the University of Western States, graduating summa cum laude as a chiropractic physician.
With clinical interests focusing on pediatric, pregnancy, and postpartum care, Dr. Emily has been an active steward to these populations, serving at the academic, clinical and legislative levels. She is certified in Webster Technique to help optimize pelvic alignment during pregnancy and is trained in Craniosacral Therapy. She was elected and is currently serving on the executive committee for the American Chiropractic Association’s Pediatrics Council.
Dr. Emily inspiration for entering into chiropractic was based on the help she received from a chiropractor during her most physically and mentally formative years. As a new mother, she also has a personal understanding of the importance physical medicine can play in helping nurture the mother-child dyad. It is from these experiences that she has devoted her future chiropractic practice toward helping aid in the optimal health and development of pediatric and perinatal patients. In her free time Dr. Emily loves to travel abroad, sing and spend time in the outdoors with her husband, Sean and son, Oliver.
