Dr. Andrew Kleinknecht B.Sc., D.C.

Dr. Andrew Kleinknecht, the son of a chiropractor, was born in Elmira, Ontario.  He completed his undergraduate degree at Mt. Allison University and graduated from The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1993.  In 1994, he moved to Nova Scotia to establish his current practice with his wife, Dr. Wanda Lee MacPhee, who is originally from Prince Edward Island.

Their hope is that their daughter Claire and son Thomas will be third generation chiropractors.  (And it looks like 1 of 2 may end up there!) Dr. Kleinknecht is an outdoor enthusiast and he enjoys fishing and canoeing when he is not with his family.

Dr. Kleinknecht maintains his expertise in chiropractic with continuing extensive post-graduate training in chiropractic care for the entire family.  He has great interest in paediatrics and geriatrics as they pertain to chiropractic.  Dr. Kleinknecht is a member of the Nova Scotia College of Chiropractors, the Canadian Chiropractic Association and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.  Previously he has served on the Board of the Nova Scotia College of Chiropractors, the regulatory division of the profession, and the Nova Scotia Chiropractic Association.

He has a special interest in family health, quality of life and longevity. A sought-after speaker in his own community, Dr. Kleinknecht is fascinated by human potential and helping others maximize their unique gifts in life.  This, he has learned, is much more easily accomplished when we are as healthy as we can be!
