Dr. Nenshi earned a Diplomate degree from the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (ACNB) in 2014. Since then, the application of clinical neuroscience and neurological rehabilitation, what we call Neuro Health, have become an integral part of her practice, especially when serving patients with brain and spine injuries.
As a practicing chiropractor in Alberta with special interest in brain function and plasticity, Dr. Nenshi’s uses safe and effective methods for promoting functional health of the body’s complex community of cells, organs, tissues and systems. Our senses, namely vision, taste, smell, sound, touch, proprioception, movement, gravity and balance, all offer valuable information about how your brain and nervous system are working. Once a diagnosis is obtained, Dr. Nenshi will use an integrated whole brain-body approach to remove stress and increase function in your nervous system. A healthy brain and nervous system are essential for energy, health and vitality.Book a free consultation
Brain based research studies show the brain has plasticity, a term meaning our neurons can adapt to changes in their environment and can grow. Neuro Health and Neuro Rehabilitation is the application of various therapies that aim to enhance nervous system function. Using our senses (vision, taste, smell, sound, touch, proprioception, movement, gravity and balance) and movement, these applications aim to stimulate receptors that in turn impact the brain and nerve system pathways that control the function of the body’s complex community of cells, organs, tissues and systems.
No. Our care is not intended to be an alternative to treatment by a medical neurologist. Our services are complementary to medical care.
We encourage close collaboration with numerous medical providers including neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, internists, and primary care providers, and in many circumstances we require you to be under medical care in order for us to take your case.
No. We cannot cure neurological diseases, or change the ultimate outcome for someone with a neurodegenerative condition. We treat people, not their diseases.
Our care is not designed to fix incurable conditions. Rather, our care is designed to improve function in the parts of the nervous system that still work in order to promote the best possible quality of life for our patients.
When you develop a neurodegenerative disorder, some nerve cells are unfortunately lost, and some pathways in the nervous system are irreparably damaged. There is nothing we can do to change that.
However, when you have such a condition, we can often find ways to influence the remaining working parts of the nervous system that still are healthy and precisely stimulate and exercise them, to make them more efficient, increase their endurance, and improve your ability to function in the world.
No. Our Neuro Health Examinations are very detailed and assess function of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Baseline neurological assessments are valuable for healthy adults and children, especially for those with active lifestyles and athletes who want a competitive edge. In addition should you be involved with an injury (car accident, head trauma, etc.) your post-injury examination findings can be compared with your baseline data, yielding valuable information about the areas that need to be retrained for recovery.
Migraines can significantly affect your life, and Dr. Nenshi has been assisting people overcome their symptoms for over 25 years.

Let's work together to find a treatment plan that is right for you.
We want to hear your story. Understanding your current health, medical history and your goals are the basis for creating the ultimate partnership with you so we can best serve your needs as our patient.
Do you know what the secret is to helping people with chronic pain? Don't treat the pain!
People have pain in all different areas of the body but don’t find relief because they are treating the symptom of a neurological problem. Chronic pain occurs as a result of constant firing of all the nervous system communication networks that send pain signals up into the brain. Chronic pain is often a perception of what is going on in your body. There are technologies in our office we use to help train the brain and nervous system to focus on energy, strength and other sensory perceptions that don't involve pain. If you're suffering from chronic pain, give us a call and let's talk about where your pain is, then we'll find out what we can do about it together.
Our in-depth examination procedures work to quickly and accurately identify the relationship between how your body is functioning and your symptoms.
Our custom programs address the whole person and are geared to meet your health goals, be it symptom relief, corrective care or wellness care.
Neuropathy is severe nerve pain that occurs as a result of the nerves degenerating and not working properly. Perhaps there's damage to the nerve or perhaps there is a stress, trauma or toxicity issue that is influencing how well the nerve is able to communicate signals in the body. Neuropathy is not a standalone condition, but a symptom that arises due to an underlying problem. The key to treating it is identifying the root cause, which could be related to how well the nervous system networks communicate signals to the brain and whether the brain is able to accurately perceive these signals to understand what is happening in the body. If you want more information about neuropathy and what we can do to help you please don't hesitate to call.
We strive towards excellence in education and health services in order to provide the highest standard of care for our patients, their families and our community.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of every patient we touch.

I've always believed that healing comes from within, and all we need to do is get stress out of the way so the brain and body can do what they are designed to do. It's possible to live long, healthy and productive lives of contribution, and not be a burden on society as we age. In fact, I believe we can biologically live much younger than our chronological age, and this is possible when we look after and nurture the communication systems in the body, namely the brain, spinal cord and the delicate nerves that electrically control every function in the body. - Dr. Alma Nenshi, B.Sc., D.C.
Dr Nenshi has been my chiropractor since 2002. She has been a true blessing in my life. Her empathy and desire to help me through so many physical challenges over the years has proven to be a saving grace so often. I highly recommend her as a doctor and a wonderful human being! Frozen shoulder, sciatica, jaw problems, all have been addressed and I found relief with her help and different modalities. Thanks Dr Nenshi!
I have been a patient of Dr. Nenshi for over 20 years. I am now in my early 80s and I swear, without her, I would not be in as good shape nor have the mobility that I have today. Dr. Nenshi is amazing. She is truly dedicated to her patients and very knowledgeable and is way more than just a chiropractor. I highly recommend her for all your chiropractic concerns and needs.
I’ve been going to Dr. Nenshi for chiropractic adjustments when needed over the years. She always helps me to get back on track so I can function well in my daily life. She is kind and caring and takes the time needed to make sure I leave feeling much better than when I arrived.
I have been going to Dr Nenshi since I moved to Calgary 12 years ago. She was there for me, when I required help with pain management while waiting for hip replacement surgery. Monthly tuneups have done my back a world of good since the surgery. Dr Nenshi is a caring individual and she always has the patient’s needs at the top of her priorities. Thank-you for being there for us! 🙂
I am a returning client of Dr. Alma Nenshi. No longer able to control the pain and discomfort of Arthritis in my spine I contacted the only person I knew that had the knowledge and ability to help me. Since the beginning of November my pain has decreased and my muscle strength has improved. There is no cure for Arthritis but I am confident the 'Magic Hands' of Dr. Nenshi will have my pain completely under control in no time. She is the absolute Best.
