Purpose of my practice: To provide a space where people can go to – learn about their health and health in general (doctor translates to teacher in Latin); have answers to their problems; (and) have stressors removed from their body and mind.
Goals I have for every patient: To help my patients – understand that they are in control of their health; overcome THE CAUSE of their physical and mental setbacks, quickly and permanently; (and) help themselves.
How do I (we) achieve this?
I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic where I pursued becoming a chiropractor after realizing it would allow me to be able to help people with a wide array of ailments on all levels of health: structural, nutritional, and emotional. This is why I use muscle testing and specialize in Applied Kinesiology, which is a comprehensive system of diagnosing and treating people as individuals. This is of utmost importance because many people have the same ailments with different causes, therefore I treat people with ailments, not ailments with people.
My goal is to help patients understand why their condition is manifesting and administer the best possible, customized treatment plan to help stop and reverse their condition. Using a “whole person approach” to treatment allows me to treat a wide array of people with a variety of different conditions. I also teach patients to help themselves by determining the optimal foods they should (and should not) eat, which dietary supplements can help them most, and what type of exercise regimen is most beneficial to support their body. Through lifestyle changes, natural remedies, and hands-on treatment; this approach allows people to regain balance and alleviate their conditions. I have a family practice and have successfully treated people ranging in age from 4 weeks to 87 years old.
I have had success helping patients with the following conditions achieve greater health: spinal, pelvic, extremity, rib, and TMJ pain, structural and sports injuries (ankle sprains, IT Band syndrome, patellar tendinitis, patellar tracking disorders, meniscus problems, piriformis syndrome, sacroiliitis, cervical/thoracic/lumbar intervertebral disc syndrome, bursitis, rotator cuff syndrome, frozen shoulder, golfer’s and tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fascitis, achilles tendonitis, and more), headaches (tension, pre-menstrual, toxicity-related, sinus, blood sugar, and migraine), sinus problems/sinusitis, digestive problems [heartburn/GERD, indigestion, ulcers, constipation, diarrhea, colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome], intestinal infections (yeast, bacterial, viral, parasitic, and protozoal), food sensitivities/allergies, chemical sensitivities, heavy metal toxicity, skin rashes, hypothyroidism, adrenal stress disorder, blood sugar imbalances (hypo- and hyperglycemia), cholesterol and triglyceride imbalances, inability to lose weight, female hormonal problems (PMS, uterine fibroids), insomnia, arthritis, obsessive/compulsive behavior, and more every day. This is accomplished by treating people and NOT their symptoms or diseases; in addition to my patients helping themselves through lifestyle changes, when necessary.
In addition to chiropractic and Applied Kinesiology, I’m also trained in Neuro Emotional Technique®, Total Body Modification®, Emotional Freedom Technique®, individualized nutritional testing, cranial/sacral adjusting, acupressure, lymphatic drainage, cold laser therapy, percussion therapy, Bio-Impedence Analysis, custom orthotic fitting, trigger point therapy, and much more. I also use standard diagnostic tests including blood, urine, saliva, orthopedic, neurological and radiological testing when necessary. The combination of these tools allows me to combine the best of alternative and mainstream medicine in a truly holistic approach.
