I’m Dr. Emily Hurley. I am a chiropractor and owner of Hurley Chiropractic and Wellness center in Conway Arkansas! Hurley Chiropractic was founded by my mother, Dr. Christine Hurley over 25 years ago. I recently graduated as a Doctor Chiropractic and was able to step in to lead the Hurley team when my mother passed away last year. I am honored to continue to carry on her legacy. Although the clinic is very well known in our community, since I am new here I wanted to introduce myself and share my mission.
I grew up in Conway and was truly raised at Hurley Chiropractic. My mom and my grandma ran the clinic in its first years and I remember being put to work from a young age in the clinic. I was able to get to know patients and hear their stories of how their lives were changed through Chiropractic care. They would share with me that they were able to return to their golf game again, or were now able to play with their grandkids. I saw my mom adjust pregnant moms with breech babies and after their bodies were balanced the babies moved into head down position. I personally was adjusted by her the first day I was born and throughout my life. Around the age of 16 I knew I wanted to follow in my mother’s footsteps as a Doctor of Chiropractic.
I began her undergraduate studies at the University of Central Arkansas and later transferred to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. I graduated as a Chiropractor from my mother’s alma mater, Logan University in St Louis Missouri in August 2019.
I met my husband while in St. Louis, and although he was born and raised there he was willing to follow me back to Arkansas to be a part of the legacy my mom spent the last 25 year building here. I did take his last name, Baumann, but I also wanted to keep the name Hurley, because I feel a strong connection to my mom and her life’s work through this name.
Like my mom, I have a special place in my heart for working with families, especially pregnant moms throughout their pregnancy and birth. I am passionate about empowering pregnant moms to advocate for the birth experience that they want and I am trained in Webster technique and Logan Basic Technique.
My mission as a doctor and as a clinic is to change the lives of families through lifelong Chiropractic care and empower them to take charge of their health.
Another of my passions is serving the Spanish speaking population. I studied abroad in Spain, served a Spanish speaking mission for my church in California and have attended several Chiropractic mission trips in Mexico. I understand how intimidating it is to not feel confident in a foreign language and how difficult a language barrier can be. I have a love for providing Spanish speakers with the healthcare that they need.
My favorite thing is traveling to the beach and my husband’s favorite thing is watching TV at home with our (many) pets. We recently had our beautiful daughter, Violet Christine and are enjoying all her smiles and snuggles.
