Biography

Through a referral I found myself in the office of a NUCCA Chiropractor in my college town. The NUCCA adjustment was so gentle that I did not believe the doctor had done anything. Two days later the sciatic pain that I had for months started to lessen in intensity and was completely gone within a week. I entered Chiropractic college about 3 months after my first NUCCA correction and have dedicated my Chiropractic career to the detection and correction of the upper cervical subluxation through NUCCA Chiropractic care. Education Palmer College of Chiropractic (Davenport, Iowa), 2006 •Doctorate in Chiropractic West Virginia University, 2002 •Bachelor of Science, Exercise Physiology (major) •Aquatic Therapy (minor) Experience 2013 – San Francisco, California I opened my own private practice, The Balanced Atlas, in San Francisco’s Sunset district. 2007 – 2013 – Virginia Beach, Virginia Senior Associate doctor at Precision Spinal Care, where I trained and practiced with David Packer, D.C., a NUCCA Board Certified doctor. 2006 – 2007 – Bend, Oregon I enjoyed a wonderful 9 month residency in beautiful central Oregon at Holtby Chiropractic Center with a 30 year veteran of the NUCCA work, Ralph Holtby, D.C.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I am a upper cervical chiropractor with over 10 years of experience in difficult and chronic pain clients. My approach is to figure out if my form of specialized chiropractic treatment (NUCCA - National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) is the right fit to get you better. If it is, we have over a 90% success rate with clients that have typically been to 6-12 other specialists and healthcare providers before even stepping into my office.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Our specialization is called NUCCA, which is short for the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association. NUCCA is an extremely light and gentle form of chiropractic which focuses on the re-alignment of the entire spine by gently restoring proper balance to the head and neck area. There is no twisting, popping or cracking of the neck or spine with the NUCCA method. We focus on the upper part of your spine because this is the basis for why your body becomes misaligned, and until properly re-balanced, is the root cause of most of our aches, pains and overall health problems.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am proud to give my clients their life and health back. Many of my clients tell me that that have regained their independence and enjoyment of life again.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I love treating families. I love it when a mother with migraines can play with her kids again. I get ecstatic when a kid can run and play with their friends because they are not having joint pain or the effects of asthma. And I smile ear to ear when a grandmother tells me that she is able to hold her grandchild without pain in her shoulders or low back. This is what we mean when we say that "We create healthy families."
