Dr. Jessica grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. She would go to the chiropractor with her parents and watch them get adjusted. She became a chiropractic assistant and enjoyed being in the office, working with patients, and watching lives change because of chiropractic. She loved the natural healing aspect of chiropractic and knew that she wanted to help others heal without the use of drugs and surgery. Dr. Jessica frequently suffered from debilitating migraine headaches and had a huge sense of relief following adjustments.
Dr. Jessica earned her bachelor‘s degree from Excelsior College followed by her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University. While attending school at Life University, Dr. Jessica grew a special place in her heart for women and children. It didn’t take long before she became a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She has a focus in treating pregnant women, newborns, and adolescents, providing safe and effective chiropractic care to those we hold most dear. Dr. Jessica is certified in the Webster Technique, for more information see our page on pregnancy. She loves caring for and supporting women throughout their pregnancy. The letters after her name stand for Certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP), indicating she has passed the requirements to be a certified pediatric chiropractor. As always, Dr. Jessica’s favorite part of her “job” is meeting the newest additions to your family and caring for them throughout their development and life.
In Dr. Jessica’s free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, outside of the office, with their two dogs, Bella & Elly Mae. She also enjoys outdoor activities such as running, walking her dogs, kayaking, photography, and spending time with her friends and family.
Dr. Jeff has specialities in Functional Neurology and Functional Medicine. After studying under Dr. Frederick Carrick and Dr. Robert Melillo, Jeff is able to help those suffering from complex neurological disorders such as: concussions, vertigo, motion sickness, post-stroke rehab, phantom limb pain, parkinson’s, and many more. This is what the extra letters after his name stand for: Diplomate of American Chiropractic Board of Neurology (DACNB). This is a very prestigious degree showing his deep understanding of the brain and nervous system.
His training with Dr. Michael Ruscio has also allowed him to help numerous visceral ailments including small intestinal bowel overgrowth (SIBO), dysbiosis/digestive related issues, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disorders, acid-reflux, and many other hormonal dysregulations. Utilizing dietary changes, supplements/ herbs, and cost-effective lab testing, the root issues can be discovered for these health issues and a plan of action for the body to heal can be taken.
Also unique to Dr. Jeff is his ability to work with extremities. Just like the spine can be adjusted and mobilized, so can feet, ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, etc. Issues such as sports injuries, frozen shoulder, tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and many others have all seen results under his care.
