Dr. Margaret Radermacher BSc. DC

Dr. Margaret Radermacher graduated from the University of Calgary, Alberta, in 1987, with a BSC, Major in Zoology.  In 1991, after returning home from  extensive travelling, she returned to her studies to attend the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College* in Toronto, Ontario.  In 1995, she graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Between 1996-2002, she owned and operated the "Jasper Chiropractic Centre," in Jasper, Alberta.  Living in the Canadian National Park of Jasper,  allowed her to pursue her lifelong dream of living in a small mountain town.  Here, she was fully imersed in her practice, but at the same time, was able to balance professional life with her passions of mountain bike riding, trail running, skiing and equestrian riding.

In 2002, her family relocated to the town of Invermere, BC.  Nestled in the Columbia Valley of the East Kooteneys, Invermere became the site of her second Chiropractic clinic, "Radermacher Chiropractic," which focuses on a family based practice.  Outside of practice, she fills her time with her passions and managing the small acreage which her and her husband share.

Professionally, her and husband, Gary Boyd, have teamed up to operate their chiropractic and massage therapy businesses  under one roof in Invermere, B.C.   They offer their community exceptional care,  as their professions  greatly compliment each other.

Dr. Radermacher has taken many courses which have allowed her to be an integral part of Invermere's health care community.  She offers  her patients relief from many neuromusculoskeletol health disorders, aches and pains and joint degeneration. Professional affiliations include membership in the BC College of Chiropractors.
