I take a holistic and personalized approach to chiropractic care and customize my treatment plans to meet the needs of each patient. My primary focus is on the restoration and maintenance of cervical spine (neck) health & function. That includes helping people resolve acute and chronic neck pain, headaches, whiplash & post-concussion symptoms, and upper extremity conditions. My approach incorporates gentle spinal, cranial, and extremity adjustments, manual muscle testing, cervical traction, injury recall techniques, neuromuscular rehabilitation, functional evaluations, postural awareness and self-care exercises. I recognize that postural habits and lifestyle choices can have a dramatic impact on ones health and ability to recover. For this reason, I help my patients discover areas of improvement in an effort to minimize the aggravating factors and maximize the conditions for healing. The goal is to help you get well quickly and stay that way. The more you learn about your body, the better choices you can make on how to best care for yourself and I want to empower you to do just that. I’m a firm believer in teamwork and have developed a large network of physicians and bodyworkers that I collaborate with, especially when the complexity of the condition requires multi-modal treatment.
I’m a lifelong learner and attend numerous conferences and training programs throughout the year. In June of 2019, I received my Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP). The DCCJP is a rigorous, post-graduate 300-hour/2.5 year advanced study in upper cervical spinal biomechanics, neuroanatomy, neuro-physiology, advanced imaging, chiropractic diagnostic and corrective techniques, outcome assessments, and upper cervical research. I am currently the only DCCJP in the San Juan Islands, Seattle, Bellingham, Mt. Vernon, and Everett area & one of 3 in the WA-state.
I’m available for complementary phone and in-office consultations, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
