About the Doctors
Dr. Poirier has dreamed of being a chiropractor since age 8 when she had her own life changing experience with chiropractic care after falling off a bike. “Chiropractic didn’t just help my aches and pains, it affected my immune system. When you go from being sick all the time to rarely sick, even as an 8 year old you take notice.” To that end, Dr. Poirier is passionate about helping families lead better, healthier lives that are pain free through natural chiropractic care. Dr. Poirier received her chiropractic degree from Palmer University in Davenport, Iowa in 1995. She earned a 120 hour certificate in Pediatrics and perinatal care through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in 2007 and her Diplomat through the American Academy of Family Practice in 2010. Where she presented her work: Improvements in Occulomotor, Auditory Function and Range of Motion in a Child with Down Syndrome Undergoing Chiropractic Care.
Dr. Poirier has received Hour Detroit’s Top Doc for the last 3 years. She is a Mom-Approved Doc by Metro Parent and a founding board member of the Michigan Chiropractic Pediatric Association. She is also a member of the Michigan Association of Chiropractors.
Dr. Poirier is married to Matthew Keenan and together they are raising Jackson, Scarlett and Sienna Sophia to enjoy health, naturally.
Dr. Megan Bauer, D.C.
Dr. Bauer had an eye-opening chiropractic experience when she suffered from debilitating headaches in her early 20s. She had been to a number of different health care professionals and was eventually told there was nothing they could do for her. She was referred to a chiropractor in her home town who educated her on chiropractic and the cause of the headaches. "Something just made sense about how he explained the cause of the headaches; it was like a light bulb went off". From there, Dr. Bauer knew her passion for wanting to help people should be done so through chiropractic care.
Dr. Bauer is originally from a small town in Southern Illinois but moved to Michigan after graduating chiropractic school. She graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri in December of 2014. She received a Bachelor of Science from Southeast Missouri State University in Biomedical Sciences and a Bachelor of Science from Logan University in Life Sciences. While at Logan, she was extensively trained in many chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Logan Basic, Thompson, Sacral-Occipital Technique (SOT), Cox Flexion-Distraction and others to help fit the personal needs of each patient.
Dr. Bauer is currently taking classes to further her education in pediatrics and perinatal care through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. "It is so rewarding to be able to help people and families achieve their best health through chiropractic care. I love having fun in the office, a smile and laughter has so much healing power."
In her free time, you can find Dr. Bauer enjoying crafts or do-it-yourself home improvement projects. She also enjoys the outdoors and spends her time camping, kayaking, fishing and spending time with her boyfriend Alex and puppy Remi. She also likes to explore new places and things in her new home of Michigan!
