Dr. Green's personal experiences with chiropractic inspired her to become one of the best chiropractors in Richmond, VA, by specializing her care plans to the specific injuires and goals of her patients.
"My mother was the first in our family to seek out chiropractic care. I remember her having significant low back pain and watching her take 10 to 15 minutes to bend over to put on her shoes each day.
She went to see Dr. Tom Becker in Lemoyne, PA and a short time after that she was able to bend over like a normal person should and put her shoes on in seconds. I was amazed!
Shortly after that I began to experience numbness on the outside of my foot while I was doing flip turns in the pool (I was a swimmer in high school). She took me on to see Dr. Becker and the numbness stopped!
What I didn't realize was that I had been such a fidgety student and was that kid who was ALWAYS taking the bathroom pass to roam the halls. It wasn't because I couldn't pay attention; it was because my mid back had been bothering me while sitting in those desks. Shortly after beginning chiropractic care, I no longer needed to take the hall pass because I felt SO MUCH better and my school performance definitely benefited from that!"
Dr. Green is a physically active person, which helps her relate to the needs and goals of her patients. She ran the Seattle half-marathon in 2003, and competes in sprint triathlons each year.
She and her husband, Lance, have a wonderful daughter to keep them busy outside of Aligned Chiropractic.
