Meet Dr. Brittany (Brit) Ellis

Dr. Brittany EllisAs a little girl, Dr. Brit was always active. She participated in gymnastics and in just about every school sport. In her young teens, she started experiencing back pain. Dr. Brit’s doctor told her that she needed to quit every sport and end all physical activity. “I even had to have someone carry my backpack to prevent the further progression of my back pain.”

Although she was young, Dr. Brit knew that no doctor should tell you to stop doing the things you love, particularly physical activity which is so good for health and wellbeing.

I knew then that I wanted to become a chiropractor to raise the standard of care when it comes to fitness, pain, rehab and more.

Education & Credentials

Dr. Brit earned her Bachelor’s from Carleton University in Ottawa ON, then moved to the United States where she earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree at New York Chiropractic College. During her time there, she was senior clerk of the student clinic and interacted with many different types of patients.

She also spent time working at a US Veterans Administration hospital where she experienced a very different side of chiropractic – she saw many people with chronic pain and various emotional issues associated with their pain.

In addition to her doctorate, Dr. Brit’s credentials are numerous:

  • GrowCo Postnatal Fitness Expert
  • Holds multiple motion palpation certifications
  • Member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA)
  • Athletic Movement Assessment (AMA) certified

Helping Patients Do What They Love

Dr. Brit is passionate about helping patients get back to what they enjoy doing, whether it’s walking their dog, squatting 250 pounds, holding their child pain-free or other everyday activities.

She finds it particularly fulfilling when patients thank her for helping them to take care of themselves.


Outside the Practice

When she’s not helping patients, Dr. Brit enjoys being active, whether she’s going for a walk or working out. She’s also a recreational gymnastics coach. Dr. Brit is a self professed foodie and loves going out to dinner, enjoying different cultures and foods from all over the world.

This Halifax, Nova Scotia native moved to Ottawa by herself at 18 and immediately knew the city was for her. She’s happy to be planting roots here.
