Meet Dr. Shara Posner

Discovering the Chiropractic Lifestyle

A College Park Scholar at the University of Maryland, Dr. Shara was studying for her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology when she first encountered chiropractic.

As an intern at a chiropractor’s office, she saw people walking into the practice bent over in pain but leave happy and feeling well. Since then, Dr. Shara has been hooked on the idea of living a more health-minded lifestyle.

“No one has a deficiency of pain medication in their body. Chiropractic helps get to the source of your problem and uses your body’s own abilities to heal.”

– Dr. Shara Posner

A Chiropractic Education

She finished her degree in kinesiology, then enrolled at the University of Bridgeport to complete her chiropractic education.

It was there that a fellow student provided chiropractic care that took care of the headaches she suffered for over a decade. Dr. Shara graduated magna cum laude with her Doctor of Chiropractic and a Master of Science in Nutrition.
