Laurie’s interest in chiropractic began when as an eighth grade gymnast with frequent low back pain and her mom brought Laurie to a chiropractor. She experienced quick relief and was captivated by the whole body approach to her care. After a car accident in college, Laurie again sought care to recover from her injuries. Through the years Laurie sought care for asthma and also realized that occasional check-ups kept her feeling good.
Once in Chiropractic College, Laurie developed some other health issues that were effectively managed over time with nutrition and lifestyle changes, using the model of Functional Medicine.
Philosophy of Healing
Root cause identification is a huge part of functional medicine, nutrition and chiropractic care. I love helping people reach their best by exploring how my clients feel and how they function.
