I believe that there should be a tiered approach to patient care, beginning with the most conservative treatment options before moving on to the next level of care. I also believe that chiropractors should be an integral member of every patient's team of health care providers. My primary goal is to restore normal joint function and to keep my patient's moving to the best of their ability and with the least amount of discomfort. In so doing, we are able to enhance musculoskeletal function and assist the pursuit of achieving optimal health.
I earned my doctor of chiropractic degree, along with a bachelor of science degree, from Northwestern University of Health Sciences, Bloomington, Minn. I also have certificates in diagnostic imaging, sports nutrition and am board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. If chiropractic care is determined to be an appropriate course of care after listening to and examining the patient, treatment may include: diversified manual manipulation/mobilization, decompression/distraction therapy, soft tissue release techniques, physiotherapies, exercise and/or nutritional therapies. My areas of interest include: treatment and prevention of sports injuries (adults and adolescents); osteoarthritis; fibromyalgia; head, neck and radicular arm pain; middle back pain and rib pain; mechanical, discogenic and radicular lower back pain; extremity joint and soft tissue injuries and plantar fasciitis/foot pain.
Married to my husband Brian, we are parents to five amazing children. When we aren't at the hockey rink with our two youngest, you'll find me swimming, running or biking with my husband and friends as we train for endurance triathlons.
