Welcome to Balance Chiropractic, located in Wyckoff NJ. Whether you have been referred here by a friend, are looking for relief from low back pain, headaches, neck pain, or you are looking for a natural approach to health and wellness, this is your first step. My focus in practice is to act as your “wellness coach” and help you be the best you can be.
I am a family chiropractor. What does that mean? My patients age from new born, to the pregnant woman, to the grandparent. I see patients of all abilities- from iron man triathletes to those with special needs. I chose to go back to school after graduating chiropractic college, to obtain a Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics. My second son was born with Down syndrome, and I wanted to learn everything I could to help him meet his potential. I learned more during this intensive three-year program than I could have imagined. Specializing in children and pregnant women is a passion.
Having a family practice has enabled me to see people of all ages and abilities. My background is sports. I started early playing basketball, soccer, and running track. My high school basketball team was state champs my senior year! I have competed in triathlons, biked from NY to Boston, run half and full marathons, and even competed in a body building show! I am a certified Yoga Instructor and Spin Instructor (although I no longer have the time to teach). Being an athlete gives me the connection to athletes to understand them not only as their chiropractor but as a fellow competitor.
I love my profession, and I am excited to continue servicing the community as a Doctor of Chiropractic, a wellness coach, and fitness instructor.
