Through this experience, she has learned the importance of rehabilitation, physical therapy, and non-traditional treatment modalities for the treatment of acute and chronic conditions, as well as the prevention of future injury. In her personal life, Becky had the opportunity to learn the benefits of ongoing chiropractic care alongside traditional medical treatment when her family decided to utilize chiropractic care for the treatment of her son’s chronic ear infections. After being blown away by the results, Becky has developed a passion for learning about holistic and integrative treatments for common injuries and illnesses. She believes in empowering people to take their health into their own hands by leading healthy lifestyles to not only treat, but, more importantly, prevent disease.
