Dr. Darcey Walraven Ladner was once told she would never walk again without spinal surgery. After being thrown from a horse, she suffered a herniated disc and decided to visit a chiropractor before agreeing to an invasive procedure. It took months of intense chiropractic care, but she soon recovered her ability to walk without surgery and eventually get back in the saddle. Despite her positive outcome, it wasn't until she witnessed a horse recover from a serious injury through chiropractic care that she realized she wanted to devote herself to this branch of medicine, which helped not only her, but also the animals she loves so much.
Thus it's no surprise that today at Omni Wellness Center, Dr. Walraven Ladner and her team of certified and trained professionals focus on bettering the lives of both humans and animals. For two-legged patients, their services cover everything from spinal adjustments to corrective exercises. And for animals––specifically horses, dogs, and cats––they offer an array of holistic options to treat joints and improve competitive performance.
