For Doctor of Chiropractic Sophie Jacob, chiropractic medicine goes beyond the bones—it’s in her blood. Jacob grew up watching her father care for patients in the field for 30 years, deciding early on to follow in his footsteps and become a second-generation chiropractor. She originally helmed two practices in her hometown of Quebec City, Canada, before moving to sunny Arizona, where she performs treatments ranging from adjustments and custom orthotics to a variety of detoxification services.
Perhaps her most important mission, however, is assisting patients with their weight-loss and fitness goals. During an interview on KGUN 9's The Morning Blend, Dr. Jacob admitted to struggling with her own weight as a child, exemplifying empathy with regards to the physical and emotional impact of excess poundage. She has designed an alkaline-food-based weight-loss program to restore bodily balance via detoxifying protocols, supplements, and hormone testing. Dr. Jacob has also treated professional athletes and has competed in several athletic events, including triathlons, swimming matches, and marathons to the moon and back.
