Healing From Within
It is my great pleasure and privilege to bring a unique combination of evidence-based and intuitive healing techniques that caters to each of my patients individually. I do not have a "one-size-fits-all" mentality to healing. In treatment, each patient and we work as a team, not only focusing on pain, but improving function and overall wellbeing- physically, mentally, and emotionally. My goal is to provide excellent therapy and to educate and empower each patient by providing the tools necessary to be actively involved in the healing process and prevent further and future injuries. Every person has the power to become more deeply connected and aware of their body and how it is affected by physical, mental and emotional stress.
Being injured, experiencing pain or losing function can be as emotionally taxing as it is physically. Along with physical medicine including chiropractic adjustments/mobilization of joints, soft tissue techniques (involving muscles, tendons and ligaments) and therapeutic/rehabilitation exercise, I commonly utilize mindfulness and awareness exercises and energetic healing to help my patients reduce the emotional influences they experience.

Chiropractic adjustments come in a variety of techniques all with one thing in common, a force is applied to joints of the spine or extremities to create significant improvement in the joint's function. Dr. Nikki uses techniques that vary in the amount of force applied and include; chiropractic adjustments delivered either manually or with a tool, and various grades of mobilization.

Dr. Nikki assesses and treats muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerve tissues. A variety of techniques are used including; pin-and-stretch, instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation, muscle energy techniques, nerve flossing, and massage techniques such as effleurage and trigger point therapy.
MINDFULNESS and AWARENESS
Dr. Nikki uses functional assessments to recognize muscle imbalances that contribute to each patients condition. By bringing patient's awareness to these imbalances and providing home rehab exercises, lifestyle changes, postural habit changes and more, each patient have the tools they need to take ownership of their health, improve their outcomes with their treatment plan, prevent further and future injury and become stronger more balanced individuals
Experiencing pain and/or disfunction is frustrating; it can cause patients to experience sadness and anger. It is also common for emotional experiences and traumas to manifest as biomechanical pain and dysfunction in the body. Dr. Nikki utilizes mindfulness and awareness exercises to help patients reduce the emotional influences they experience. The patient can use these tools to improve treatment outcomes, prevent further injury, and improve overall quality of life by reducing stress and deepening one's connection between their body and mind.
