Dr. Thomson’s educational background allows her to take a biomechanical and physiological approach when evaluating each patient. She believes that each patient brings new challenges, and no two cases are treated the same. “Chiropractic care is unique because it gets to the root of the problem as opposed to chasing symptoms.” explains Dr. Thomson, “I am a firm believer that the entire musculoskeletal system must be addressed in order to restore proper function to the body.”
Her experience in the competitive world and the love of sports gives her the compassion and drive to keep her patients moving. Dr. Thomson not only enables patients to get back to their sport faster, but also helps them improve their athletic performance.
