Chiropractor at Urban Wellness Clinic

Meet 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, 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.

What Patients are Saying About Dr. Emily Kiberd

  • I knew that it was imperative I find a great chiropractor if I wished to achieve my running goals. I have been able to run much more efficiently since starting treatment as my stride length has improved dramatically. I am able to recover from intense training runs much more quickly helping me take my training to the next level. Thank you!

  • I initially came to Dr Kiberd because of excruciating pain from an L4-5 herniated disc. I could barely walk when I came to her. By the time I left my first session I felt like a new person. Not only is she an incredible physician, she has a warm spirit and takes her time with each patient. Her understanding of the human body is incredible and I can’t sing her praises enough.
    — Danielle
  • I came to Dr Kiberd as an injured athlete and confused about what I should do next. She took the time with me to address the root of my problems and to identify the weaknesses that were the underlying cause to my problems. With the treatment and exercise plan Dr Kiberd provided, I have been stronger and healthier than ever before.

  • I felt very comfortable at Urban Wellness clinic. The staff were friendly and knowledgable and really took their time to help me and get to the root of the problem. I felt so much better even after my first visit.
    — Laura
  • Dr. Kiberd is an excellent doctor and healer. Not only has she used her diverse methods to help me with personal physical adjustments, she has been my anatomy coach creating a streamline anatomy program for my yoga teacher trainings, and has also co-lead the anatomy portion of my training. She is brilliant and articulate, and I highly recommend her.
    — BJ
  • I used to get injured all the time. It felt like any time I would try to take my training to the next level, either my weak glutes or tired hamstrings would put me on the sidelines. Since working with Dr. Kiberd and the Urban Wellness Clinic team, I’ve enjoyed the longest stretch of injury-free running I’ve had in years.
    — Jason
  • I threw my back out during the first act of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY and became so immobile that I had to let my understudy take over for the third act! Fortunately, Emily was able to see me the next morning and she had me back on stage that night–she’s THE BEST!!!
    — Kimberly
  • Dr. Kiberd worked with me to design a Summer Wellness Series for our staff. Every other week we offered a wellness opportunity – from chair yoga, to ergonomics at your desk…. it was customized, it was personal, and it was a BIG HIT! The subject matter expertise and quality of care that Urban Wellness is able to deliver is unparalleled in this industry.
