Dr. Sarah MacArthur graduated Summa Cum Laude from Life Chiropractic College West after completing her honors Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a minor in psychology at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. It was during her time at the University of Guelph where she developed a curiosity and passion for working with the human body from a natural standpoint. During her post-graduate studies Dr. Sarah specialized in upper cervical chiropractic and has continued to develop her skills through the Art of the Specific training program. Dr. Sarah loves to give back and has participated in a unique Outreach Program to Mexico City where she used objective measures to care for hundreds of people over the span of a week. Dr. Sarah has passed the National Chiropractic Board tests in both the United States and her home Country, Canada.
While attending Chiropractic College she played rugby for the Life West Gladiatrix. The team had only just started when she started school and over the course of her education had won the D2 and D1 National Championships back to back. She was the first female rugby scholarship athlete to graduate from Life West. It was during this time that she developed an interest in helping athletes through upper cervical chiropractic care, especially working with those athletes who sustained concussions from head and neck trauma. She also acted as the vice prime minister of the Canada club at Life West for a number of years and was part of the World Congress of Chiropractic Students (WCCS).
Dr. Sarah’s passion lies in helping people live better quality lives through chiropractic and her empathy and compassion to her patients is what makes her stand out. Her mother had many health challenges all while she was growing up and Dr. Sarah watched her mother undergo a number of surgeries and treatments in order to maintain her health and it wasn’t until she started receiving specific chiropractic care that she was able to get off some heavy pain medications and truly live a better quality life. This is what drives Dr. Sarah’s passion for helping people that are dealing with chronic health issues.
When Dr. Sarah isn’t in the office you could probably find her playing rugby, working out, or hiking. She also enjoys exploring local coffee shops, food trucks, going to concerts and all different types of festivals. In her down time she is also an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction. She loves bringing people from the community together to collaborate and create strong bonds in order to elevate the community as a whole.
