Doctor of Chiropractic Kimberly Woudsma understands that the best healing treatments should be less traumatic than the problems they’re intended to cure. With that in mind, she studied Atlas Orthogonal, a crack-less spinal adjustment method, at the side of its inventor, Dr. Roy Sweat. Now, she is the only chiropractor in the area to be board certified in this gentle technique, which uses a ProAdjuster wand to deliver mechanical pulses to the body while simultaneously taking computerized readings that monitor patients’ mobility and number of remaining extra lives. In addition to tending to patients, Dr. Woudsma finds time for professional improvement, regularly attending continuing education events to bolster her knowledge of physiotherapy, nutrition, and preventative healthcare.
