Who We Are
Dr. Brian Ferguson
Brian Ferguson, D.C. was exposed to chiropractic from birth. He received his first chiropractic adjustment 10 minutes after birth from his father, Dr. Peter Ferguson. Growing up around chiropractic he always knew that was his life’s mission, but he had an aha moment while in high school at Central Catholic and there would be no turning back. In sophomore English class they spent an hour discussing the meaning of life and Dr. Brian took from that class that the meaning of life was to help others. He knew of no one that helped more people than his father, so he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps. After graduating from Central Catholic he went on to earn a bachelors in Science from Miami University. He continued his education at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, New York where he earned his doctorate of chiropractic degree. Following graduation from New York Chiropractic College, Dr. Brian joined his father’s practice, Ferguson Chiropractic, where he has worked as an associate doctor from 2007 until 2013. During that time he served as a member of the Phoenix Rising board of trustees, a member of the Salvation Army Canton chapter advisory board, team doctor of Timken High School football and boys basketball teams, and team doctor of the Perry High School track team. His postgraduate studies include multiple certifications in ART (Active Release Technique), a certified activator methods provider, and has completed a 3 year diplomat in Chiropractic Pediatrics program from the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association. He is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association, a member of the Ohio State Chiropractic Association, and continues to serve as team physician. Dr. Brian learned a great deal in his 6 years working under his father including the importance of community involvement, dedication and desire to serve, how to love and care for patients as well as an continual desire to help others. Dr. Brian and Amanda met after Amanda graduated from Chiropractic College and moved back to Ohio. They share the same interests and philosophy of chiropractic. They both live the chiropractic lifestyle. They focus on whole food nutrition for themselves as well as their children, Emma, Landon, Elle and even their dog, Charlie.

Dr. Emily Rehm
Dr. Emily graduated from D’Youville College in May of 2018. While in chiropractic school she was top of her class and graduated magna cum laude while obtaining her Doctorate of Chiropractic. Her clinical experience was top notch as she was able to work in a major trauma hospital and a busy neurosurgical clinic. Before pursing her doctorate, she earned her Bachelors of Science in Biology in 3 years at Walsh University. She loved the North Canton community while attending Walsh and could not think of a better place to serve.
Dr. Emily first became interested in chiropractic while she was a freshman in high school, when she went with her mom to a chiropractic appointment. While her mom was pregnant with Emily, she actually fell through a barn floor and herniated two discs in her lower back. She only found relief from getting adjusted. Dr. Emily loved the natural holistic approach that was taken as she has always wanted to help others, but did not know her true calling until after seeing the benefits from chiropractic.
Dr. Emily is also trained in Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) which adds in an additional layer to her treatment which taps into the emotional/stress component associated with pain. She is an active member in the Ohio State Chiropractic Association (OSCA).
Since completing her degree, she now resides in her hometown of Orrville with her husband Justin and dog Brady. As a family they love to go hiking, play sports, garden, help on the family farm, and any other outdoor activities. Dr. Emily’s favorite quote is by Thomas Edison and states, “The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” She believes this quote describes what chiropractic has to offer for patients perfectly.
