    Chiropractic Assistant

    I have been a long-time patient at Spine Arts Center and I am so excited to be a part of the team as a Chiropractor Assistant! I have grown up in Springfield, VA my whole life. I studied at Liberty University and received my bachelor’s degree in Human Services. One day I hope to work in the Humanitarian Aid field and travel around the world helping people in need. In my free time I love being out in nature and going on hikes with my dog. I also love reading and watching movies or shows with my friends and family. I have benefited so much from Chiropractic care myself and I hope to help others benefit from it as well.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    It’s amazing! I can move so much more easily. My pain level has been reduced more than I could have ever believed it could.

    Brian L.

    I am amazed at the improvement that I have had. I have not had a full night’s sleep in 5 years, in spite of going to other doctors in other states. I cannot take pain killers, which is good because I got the root cause of the problem fixed, and not just covered up. My wife even notices that I have more energy and am happier without the pain.

    Armondo S.

    I strongly recommend Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic; it was a surprise that it worked much better than medications. You can’t beat getting better and feeling good without medication.
