DR. THERESA FITzgerald, DC

 I've been a licensed California Chiropractor in clinical practice since 1991. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Cleveland Chiropractic College, Los Angeles, with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. Chiropractic education is similar in many respects to that of medical doctors, minus the surgery and medication components! I am a Lifetime Member of my school's Alumni Association. 

I engender a collaborative alliance with a focus on understanding how your past and current injuries, hobbies, and work experiences impact your well-being. I love to educate my patients about how their daily activities may be interfering with pain-free optimum health and how to best achieve it while tailoring their home care program to their life circumstances. My active participation in our therapeutic relationship helps you develop the skills you need to manage your own health conditions. This empowerment often leads to transformational healthier habits and improved functional levels.
