Who is the player on the Canadian Women's Soccer team who is a chiropractor? Dr. Melissa Tancredi, Canada's Women's National Soccer Team forward, is a future Canadian practicing chiropractor. The Canada Women's National Soccer Team played excellent soccer while hosting the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup across the country in Vancouver, Edmonton, Hamilton, and Montreal. The team drew tens of thousands of live supporters to their games, with individuals becoming household names, including Tancredi.
Tancredi has worked on her Doctorate of Chiropractic education, an intense 4 year program, over the past 8 years, while taking time off to play in the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Her dedication to becoming a chiropractor was a full time job on its own; classroom times and clinical obligations easily hit 40 hours a week, not counting studying for course work and taking extracurricular credentials. Her dedication of taking time away from Canadian National team shows Tancredi's passion for chiropractic in Canada - a field that is still underused for diagnosis and treatment of low back pain, pregnancy care, and sports injuries.
