“After college graduation and working a few years in a Chicago hospital I became very intrigued with the miraculous complexity and finely orchestrated workings of the human body. After exploring many health care opportunities I was stunned by the instant connection I had when introduced to the chiropractic profession.”
Dr. Cathy began her academic career with a Bachelor of Arts from Briar Cliff College. She completed her pre-med studies at Cleveland State University before her acceptance at Palmer College of Chiropractic. After 19 years in practice she states that initial desire to learn and teach others only continues to deepen and she still loves learning and implementing new theories and techniques in chiropractic and the field of physical medicine.
She is certified in spinal whiplash injuries and has specialized training and extensive study in clinical biomechanics of the spine, spinal rehabilitation, orthopedics, and neurology. She is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, Illinois Chiropractic Association, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, American Academy of Spine Physicians, and Palmer Alumni Association. She has been a member of Soroptomist International for 16 years, a women’s service organization working to advance the status of women and children worldwide. She was a charter member to the local organization and held several leadership positions.
Most people enter our clinic because they are in pain. It is our commitment to get to the source of your problem and to get you better. Our expertise is providing physical solutions for physical problems i.e. those problems which cannot be addressed by drugs or surgery. We are a bridge between the “human touch” of alternative health and the hard science of medicine. If we are unable to provide you with what you need we work with your family physician as well as make referrals to other health care providers.
Of course I love treating “conditions” such as shoulder, neck, back, knee, and headache pains but what really intrigues me is my patients response to their care. I like it when they experience the distinct difference a chiropractic treatment provides for them and the common “WOW” response after their treatment. They know it’s absolutely the right thing their body needed. Many patients report feeling more in control and motivated to be responsible for their health and well being.
I’ve taken on a Health and Wellness lifestyle since the day I became interested in Chiropractic. There is no question that lifestyle habits influence the quality of your life. And what’s even more wonderful it doesn’t matter your age when you begin. You can feel results immediately, and those results in turn motivate you to continue on to the next step.
