Robust Health Radio Episode #12: A Chiropractic Approach with Dr. Emily Kiberd


Dr. Kiberd started Urban Wellness Clinic with a mission: to optimize every patient’s health, so they live—sprint, lift, race, or stand—without pain.


Her expertise spans several therapeutic fields: biomechanics, yoga, and functional movement patterns. She is fascinated by how the body compensates with injuries, and how good form varies based on the person and context. Dr. Kiberd loves tackling tough cases, and she is adept at hunting down an injury’s true cause. Her active, cross-discipline treatments emphasize alignment and precise movements that offer long-lasting results.




Dr. Kiberd earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the University of Western States, in Portland, Oregon. She is a 200-hour-certified yoga instructor, and develops wellness programs for corporate clients, including Fortress Investment Group, Corbin Capital, Sundance Channel, and Fortune 500 companies. Dr. Kiberd also helps yoga instructors deepen their understanding of anatomy and biomechanics through in-depth workshops.


Dr. Kiberd loves what she does, and her passion continues outside UWC. She’s always game to try new workouts, to better adapt them for her patients. She also experiments with yoga sequences to heal different injuries, and enjoys settling in for the night with a few health journals. Beyond fitness, Dr. Kiberd loves cooking with her new husband and relaxing on the beaches of Fire Island come summertime.
