Dr. Deb is a recent graduate from the University of Bridgeport where she graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Originally from Long Island, Dr. Deb knew early on that this would be her path. With a Chiropractor in the family, her Mother believed in the holistic approach to treatment and from infancy through various sports related injuries it was their first line of medical treatment.
Dr. Deb relies, not just on spinal adjustments but also counseling in nutrition, exercise and uses various methods including soft tissue massage, manipulation and mobilization. Her focus is on treating the nervous system, which, as she explained, influences the immune system as well as the dynamic functioning of all organs not just the muscular/skeletal system. Since all nerves run first through the spinal cord, correct alignment insures that there are no energy blockages through these portals.
Dr. Deb came to Brookfield Family Chiropractic through an inquiry for a practitioner through her graduate school. After joining the practice, the former owners decided to sell and she took advantage of the opportunity to open her own business. She anticipates adding a massage therapist, other practitioners, physical therapists and creating a wellness center. She already offers seminars on various wellness topics.
Dr. Deb treats clients of all ages but her specialty is in pediatrics. Ear infections, reflux disorders, asthma can have benefits through chiropractic care. As a member of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association), she has taken extensive seminars in pediatrics as well as pregnant women. She does a thorough pre treatment exam for all of her patients which may include an assessment with an Insight Millennium Subluxation Station, X-rays, Thermal Scan and uses an antioxidant scan to help assess a patient’s overall antioxidant levels with advice on supplementation.
Dr. Deb hopes to become an active participant in the community and has already interfaced with various Mom’s Groups, the High School Boosters Club and sponsors the Park and Rec. Road Races. A runner herself, she has just completed her first full marathon. Dr. Deb does Yoga and teaches gymnastics in her spare time. Her key to success is to build meaningful individual relationships within the community through networking. Her goal is to help her patients achieve ultimate wellness.
