About Precise Moves and Dr. Amie Gregory, DC, CCEP
I became interested in chiropractic while training as an amateur boxer. After workouts, I began to have wrist, lower back, and elbow pain. This was starting to affect my desk job duties and I began to see a chiropractor because a co-worker’s husband had a local practice. My physical problems diminished quickly and it allowed me to continue doing what I loved. I could work out without pain and didn’t notice any problems at work. During my care, I began to discover how amazing the natural process of healing was without medication or surgery. I had never experienced this type of care before. This sparked my interest in chiropractic, anatomy, and physiology. I quickly quit my nine to five job at a San Francisco high tech company and enrolled in chiropractic school because I was so blown away at how a chiropractor could facilitate such effective healing only using their hands and specific tools. I wanted to become a doctor to help other people the same way I was. I also wanted to give people something they may have not experienced before when seeking help from a doctor. I am passionate about what I do, constantly learn new techniques and modalities to help my patients any way I can. Health and wellness take some work along with changes in lifestyle habits and I am here to listen, guide and help you get results.
I love working with people who want a natural and holistic method of healing. I truly care about your health and well being and though you may come in with a specific issue, I will analyze your whole body to find out why any issue has shown up and if anything else is festering in your system waiting to present itself as a symptom. I monitor your progress with hands-on tests and state of the art technology (“The Insight”) to cover all facets of health. Whether you are coming in with an athletic injury, car accident issue or to make sure you are in the best health you can be in, your health is my top priority. Using the Insight is accurate but non-invasive and painless. I will allow me to see what stress your body is under and areas to focus on that may not have surfaced yet so we can address them and make sure they do not impede your life in the future.
I not only focus on your body as a whole but understand that most athletes are normally pretty involved in what keeps them able to function optimally to achieve the best results at their chosen sport and stay as healthy possible. Being a former patient and athlete (boxing, softball, triathlete, tennis, boot camp), I understand the demands put on the body, how to eliminate stress and achieve health and wellness. We work as a team to keep you not only able to do the things you love but make sure your health is in tip-top shape!
I will do my best to make sure all of my patients feel comfortable, welcome, understood and 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. This stress can be physical, emotional or chemical. 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 habits such as repetitive actions, sitting, sleeping or standing in stressful positions, 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 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” system 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 and if changes need to be made to your treatments. 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), Electromyograph (muscle evaluation) and monitors your autonomic nervous system which is responsible for all functions in your body. It controls and interprets your heartbeat, skin temperature, circulation of blood and makes sure your systems are running efficiently and handling any stress your body is under. 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 in 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.
Nutritional advice & Nutrition Response Testing
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.
