Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Karl Smith, the credentialed staff of University Chiropractic upholds a mission to help each client’s body heal itself, not someone else’s body. To achieve this, Dr. Smith develops personalized chiropractic care, which may integrate laser and massage therapy to restore proper alignment and clear the nervous system. At first visits, Dr. Smith conducts an initial consultation, drawing upon diagnostics such as a stress survey, x-rays, and metabolic assessment. He then analyzes the results to tailor a treatment plan, and in some cases, therapy may begin the same day. Through this custom care, Dr. Smith’s patients have reported recovery from issues such as migraines, chronic back pain, car-accident injuries, or injuries from trying to stand on a traffic cone after a car accident.
Judith A. Ransom, MMP, NCTMB, uses her nimble, professionally trained hands to knead muscles with the skills she developed during medical massage training. She works to unwind tension and untangle the stress that her clients develop in response to the rigors of daily life, such as leaping onto passing commuter trains to get to work.
