Dr. Heather Hunscher (Owner)

Dr. Heather grew up in Salem, NH. Her journey to becoming a doctor started there as a chiropractic patient 22 years ago. Her childhood was plagued by illness, pain, and an endless array of doctor's appointments and prescription medications; all of which provided no explanations or solutions to her many health problems. The day her father brought her to see a chiropractor was the day Dr. Heather would later recall as the one that changed her life forever. Chiropractic dramatically changed her life by improving her immune system to allow her to overcome asthma, allergies, and recurrent bronchial and sinus infections as well as eliminating 10 years worth of headaches, neck pain, back pain, and knee pain. Prior to becoming a chiropractic patient, Dr. Heather aspired to be a pediatrician so she could help children. She felt as though the medical profession had failed her and she never wanted another child to feel the hopelessness she had experienced. She vowed she would do everything possible to bring health and hope to as many children as she could.


The transformation in Dr. Heather's health, from that very first adjustment, changed her mind from wanting to be a pediatrician to wanting to be a chiropractor. The journey towards becoming a chiropractor began with a high school internship with her chiropractor and mentor. Upon graduating from Saint Anselm College with her Bachelors Degree, she attended the Fountain Head of Chiropractic, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. Upon graduation from chiropractic school, 8 years after her first adjustment, Dr. Heather returned to NH to bring wellness to the community she had grown up in.

In 2009, Dr. Heather and her husband moved to Oahu, Hawaii where she practiced for 4½ years in a small historical surfing town. In November 2013, Dr. Heather opened Oceanside Chiropractic after moving back to the east coast. Dr. Heather's passion has been working with the pediatric and maternity populations. She is Certified by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP) and is Webster Technique certified. Dr. Heather loves learning and attending advanced seminars in pediatrics and pregnancy.

When not at her office taking care of patients, Dr. Heather can be found with her husband, Brendan, her daughter, Savannah (age 11), and her sons, Ryan (age 8) and Liam (age 5). Brendan served our country in the US Navy for 12 1/2 years and is currently in the Navy Reserves. 

Dr. Heather Hunscher, DC, CACCP is a licensed Chiropractor in Rhode Island.
