How did Dr. Amie Gregory become interested in Chiropractic?
She became interested in chiropractic while training as an amateur boxer. After her workouts, she began to have wrist, lower back, and elbow pain. She began to see a chiropractor on advice from a co-worker and her physical problems diminished quickly and it allowed her to continue doing what she loved. During her care, she began to discover the natural process of healing without medication or surgery and had never experienced this type of care before. This sparked her interest in chiropractic, anatomy and physiology. She quickly quit her nine to five job at a San Francisco law firm and enrolled in chiropractic school. She wanted to become a doctor to help other people the same way she was. She is passionate about what she does and constantly learns new ways to help her patients achieve health and wellness.
“Most athletes are normally pretty involved in what keeps them able to function at there best and achieve the best health possible. Being a former patient and athlete (boxing, softball, triathlete, tennis, bootcamp), I understand the demands put on the body, how to eliminate stress and achieve health and wellness. I am here throughout my patients health and life journey and will help in anyway I can to achieve health and wellness greatness!”
Dr. Gregory cares about your health and well being and though you may come in with a specific issue, she analyzes the full body to find out why this issue has shown up and if anything else is festering in the system. She monitors progress with hands on tests and state of the art technology (“The Insight”) to cover all facets of health. This technology is used by professional athletes, cardiologists and physical therapists to track progress throughout care. This is non-invasive, painless and shows what stress your body is under and areas to be focused on that may not have surfaced so they do not impede your life in the future.
Her intuition, diversity, sense of humor, resourcefulness and intelligence not only allows her to be an excellent doctor who gets results, but enables her patients to feel comfortable, welcome, understood and feel like family while obtaining their optimal health goals.

Why go to the chiropractor for your whole body instead of just neck and back?
Well, neck and back pain is a health problem caused by stress on the body. We need to find out where this stress is coming from and what you are doing in your life that is contributing to these issues.
Symptoms normally arise because of improper lifestyle issues such as repetitive actions, sitting, sleeping or standing the wrong way, physical accidents, poor eating habits and emotional stress. We help find the cause by analyzing your whole body in search for any stress that may be dormant waiting to surface and cause symptoms. We want to make sure you are not only pain free but healthy and able to function correctly so problems don’t arise later. In order to do this, we focus on your whole body from the spine to everything else thereafter. We track your nerves from head to toe (feet, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles and hips) and discuss other habits you have in your life that may be contributing to your health issues.
We understand that each person is unique and may require different treatment methods in order to heal, so we tailor an individual care plan to get quicker and long lasting results just for you. We guide you in any way we can and are here to answer any questions you may have along the way. We know you have a lot of choices out there and we are confident that we will get results and keep you on the road to health.
Stress and Wellness Monitoring:
When performing exams, in addition to any orthopedic, muscle testing and body analysis we may perform at our office, we also utilize the most innovative and scientific technology to track your care and progress. We use the “Insight” monitor for stress analysis. This was developed by the space foundation which has been used on astronauts before being cleared for flight. It is used by Cardiologists, Physical Therapists and is a great way to track how your body is responding to care. It is used on professional athletes to track health and progress to make sure their body is working efficiently and keep track of any changes that need to be addressed during training. This unit includes a Thermograph (heat sensor), Electromygraph (muscle evaluation) and even interprets your heart beat, skin temperature and circulation of blood in the body. It tracks your autonomic nervous system which is responsible for all functions of the body. This means all organs in the body are analyzed to see if they are stressed as well. It is completely painless, non-invasive, safe and has no side effects.
Car Accident Rehabilitation:
We are experts at treating car accident injuries. We use advanced diagnostics to track your body and nerves during treatment and treat your whole body making it easy for you to recover. We help with whiplash, headaches, low back pain, shoulder pain or any other problem that may occur after an accident. We accept all PPO insurances, car insurance (Med-Pay), will work on a lien with your attorney or have affordable cash plans.
Soft Tissue Repair:
We are experts in SASTM (a Graston Technique). SASTM is a physical therapy technique used on professional athletes to help repair injuries and keep range of motion at its optimal level. These tools get rid of scar tissue, knots and adhesions from sports injuries or repetitive stress injuries. This technique is great for anyone that has had a chronic musculo-skeletal issue, joint stiffness or trigger points in muscles, tendons and ligaments.
We are certified in the Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This technique has been greatly successful during pregnancy for decreasing low back and pelvic pain, sciatica, turning breech babies and has even shown results in twins. Keeping the pelvis and low back moving properly allows your baby to be comfortable, making you comfortable and ready for birth. Even if your baby is not breech, this technique can help during your full pregnancy and help promote an easier labor.
Because we care about your full health and well being, some of our existing patients may need help with diet. To help we also do Nutrition Response TestingSM and Morphogenic Field Testing which address areas in your diet that may be contributing to ill health.
We have a wide variety of patients and get great results with athletes, expectant mothers, infants and children. We are dedicated to help you reach your goals. You will transform into the healthy, strong, vibrant individual you want to be naturally without drugs or surgery.
