Dr. Smith is originally from Newport News, Virginia. She graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences. During her time as a student she was introduced to chiropractic and sought care for herself in order to address the underlying cause of her low back pain. She found that being under chiropractic care had truly improved her overall quality of life. While learning the true meaning of chiropractic, she remembers being transformed and desired to be a part of a profession that is not only wellness based, but patient centered. From there, she enrolled at Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, and earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. She is happy to have made her home here in the Okaloosa area after relocating with her husband, who serves in the United States Air force.
Dr. Smith offers a variety of adjusting techniques to help restore and maintain spinal health and function. This is important because every patient requires treatment tailored to their individual needs, goals, and physical conditions. Dr. Smith believes that her patients should want to play an active role in their health journey. By committing to a healthier life for yourself, you are able to encourage your loved ones to follow in the same path. Her goal is to promote a community of healthier families and to share the importance of chiropractic care for all ages. Dr. Smith has received extensive training from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, which focuses on the care of children and pregnant women and is certified in the Webster Technique. At this time, Dr. Smith is working to earn postgraduate certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics.
The reality is that many complaints are smaller pieces of a bigger problem, and that problem is a decrease in body function due to disturbances to your nervous system. Dr. Smith hopes to communicate a message of overall wellness to every person that she encounters because with a nervous system free of interference, there is no limit!
