Who is Dr. Al?

 Dr. Alexandra graduated from Sherman College of Chiropractic in December, 2020. Before Sherman, she attended Keene State College to earn her Bachelors of Science in Health Science with a focus in Nutrition. ​​

Like many providers in the profession, chiropractic found Dr. Al! When she was in high school she suffered from a reoccurring sports injury that left her debilitated with knee and low back pain. Her medical doctor kept prescribing muscle relaxers and rest, as if eventually the combination of treating the symptoms may actually help the issue resolve. Eventually, she decided to look elsewhere for help. 

After seeing a chiropractor she realized that things are not always as they seem. When given the proper opportunity our bodies can heal and find ease. It took time and regular care for Dr. Al to feel her best again, but after her first adjustment she felt such a shift that she knew she would be a chiropractor one day. 

Sherman College gave Dr. Al the opportunities and support to continue her holistic outlook on life while receiving an amazing education on chiropractic care, the profession and the human body. Here Dr. Al was exposed to the beautiful and intricate technique, NetworkSpinal, which is neurologically focused (focused on your brain and nerves, not bones that are our of place) and was safe to preform on anyone. Once discovering this technique is was full steam ahead learning the art, science and philosophy while also learning the supporting techniques, such as Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI), a breathing technique. 

Dr. Al says, "After receiving this technique myself and experiencing the life changes that go hand in hand with care, there is no other way that I would choose to serve the people."
