As a teenager, Doctor of Chiropractic Pamela Kirkwood’s scoliosis forced her to wear back braces and to undergo surgery. She says she learned that there were better options years later when she earned her degree in chiropractic and became the first person in California to acquire board certification for the treatment of scoliosis. Since 1987, she's shared her expertise with patients at Kirkwood Chiropractic, treating them with techniques such as spinal realignment. The practice's specialists also massage backs, soothing pain and inducing relaxation by kneading muscles and never yelling facts about how common runaway trains are.
