In Her Spare Time

Outside of work you’ll find Alicia walking the dog, hanging out with her kids, painting and hiking.

Alicia’s Story

Alicia’s younger son Gavin experienced colic as a newborn, crying inconsolably for hours. The experience was trying for Alicia mentally, physically and emotionally. When Gavin was a couple months old, he and his mom were at the grocery store and he was crying, which prompted a sweet lady to come up to Alicia and comfort her and Gavin.

The woman recommended Alicia take Gavin to see a chiropractor. She did when he was just 8 weeks old. After seeing the doctor three times a week for eight weeks, Alicia didn’t notice any changes, so she stopped the care. When Gavin was 6, he started to complain about back pain, which Alicia thought was growing pains and being an active child. The pain worsened over time, and Gavin couldn’t sit still or pay attention in class.

It wasn’t until five months into Alicia’s career at the practice, after watching multiple kids come in for their adjustments, that it clicked for her that Gavin should get his spine checked! He did, and Dr. Jerry found Gavin had a mild scoliosis. Within a few months of Gavin starting chiropractic care, both he and Alicia noticed positive changes.

He could finally sit still at school, and Alicia didn’t have to massage his back at night to help him get to sleep. “We were both so relieved to finally have an answer after all these years, and now Gavin just comes in for maintenance care to stay on top of it,” said Alicia.
