Dr. Ashleah Linden


I have had the pleasure of working with Back On Track since 2013, I have since experienced working with a group of highly skilled professionals in health rehabilitation.

I earned my Bachelor of Health Science degree from Western University and earned early acceptance to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, and graduated in 2008. I initially began my career in private practice in British Colombia and eventually moved back home.

Since beginning my professional role with Back On Track I have pursued further study in Concussion Management and Vestibular Rehabilitation. I continue to pursue continuing education to further my clinical abilities.

Recently, as well as providing private service, I have been working with the Interprofessional Spinal Assessment and Education Clinics as an Advanced Practice Clinician for the Kemptville area. Through this training at the Ottawa Hospital and the ISAEC team, I have further advanced diagnosis and management strategies.

You should expect that an initial visit with a chiropractor should include a full history of symptoms and orthopaedic examination as well as a clear and concise diagnosis. A plan of management will then be determined and agreed upon, with an emphasis on evidenced based care.
