Dr. Emily Brady, D.C.
Dr. Emily Brady, D.C., earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic, which is the founding college of chiropractic medicine. Dr. Emily became extremely passionate about Chiropractic after experiencing the benefits of treatment first hand while recovering from her own serious sports injuries. Enduring countless months of rehab and various types of doctor visits, she found the most specific and integrative care she received was from her chiropractor. Dr. Emily has sought out to do the same, and make a difference for the vast number of patients who go through health care systems that merely mask individual symptoms instead of evaluating the body as a whole. Whether a patient is working towards getting through a work day pain-free or competing at their highest level of physical fitness, Dr. Emily will evaluate and establish an appropriate care plan to ensure optimal health and wellness to each individual. Outside of the office, you can find Dr. Em on a soccer field, enjoying exercise, cheering on Pittsburgh sports teams, or getting active outdoors!

Elina Murphy, MS, CNS, LDN is a Certified Nutrition Specialist certified by the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists and a Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist. She has always been interested in the science of Nutrition but really developed a passion for it after the birth of her first child and starting CrossFit.

Elina joined Dr. Dan’s team while finishing up her Masters in Nutrition and Human Performance and has been there ever since. She continues to stay on top of new developments in the field of Nutrition and Functional Medicine by attending various seminars and following the latest research.

In her free time, Elina enjoys being outside, working out, trying new recipes, and chasing after her two boys.
Preston Miller was born and raised in Somerset Pennsylvania and in 2018 I decided to make the jump to Pittsburgh. Since coming to Pittsburgh I have acquired my personal training certification and have been training others ever since. Some of my hobbies include watching football, playing soccer, riding my bike, and bodybuilding. Right now my biggest personal goal is to compete in multiple bodybuilding shows in 2021 and earn my pro card, which is very exciting for me because I’ve wanted to compete since 2015. I have been training and learning about bodybuilding for the last 8 years and doing so has led me to my ultimate passion which is training others and helping people to achieve their goals. Whether the goal is to lose weight, gain muscle, get stronger, or function better in everyday life, nothing is more exciting for me than to watch a client take steps toward their goals and develop a newfound confidence in themselves. I feel so incredibly fortunate to be a part of the team here at Turack Chiropractic and Beat Fitness. Dr. Dan and his staff really make this place feel like home. I look forward to meeting and working with every single one of you. Stop in and let’s chat about your goals!
