As a chiropractor trained at an evidence-based college, I am qualified to answer any musculoskeletal question. This includes questions related to nerves, joints, ligaments, intervertebral discs, tendons, muscles, fascia, etc… In addition, I have further certifications in acupuncture and functional medicine (also known as functional nutrition). This extra training will help me answer concerns about chronic, auto-immune, and degenerative conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Allergies, Asthma, Migraines, and much more. I am not currently the best source for emergency medicine questions or those relating to prescription drug treatments for overt pathologies.

We see a wide variety of patients from all over Idaho. Many of our patients were injured playing sports, working, or in an auto accident. In addition, I treat many patients that haven't had results with their chronic conditions in other places. These patients present with a multitude of complaints - reflux, chronic halitosis, chronic constipation, fatigue, weight gain, and more. I use natural and proven therapies by treating each patient individually and by offering customized lifestyle, diet, and supplement plans.
