With a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences, Dr. St. Thomas works with a wide variety of athletes including runners, bodybuilders, crossfit competitors and ballet dancers.
Dr. St. Thomas is certified in the McKenzie Method (also known as MDT, or Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy) for spinal complaints. With MDT, the same movements that confirm your diagnosis may be incorporated gently and safely into your treatment plan.
“This technique is powerful in both communicating vital information to my patients and helping them become directly involved in their progress,” says Dr. St. Thomas. “It is equally as empowering as it is effective.”
In addition, Dr. St. Thomas utilizes a specific blend of soft tissue techniques, such as functional movement assessments, myofascial release technique (MRT), active release technique (ART), Graston Technique, RockTape applications and corrective exercise to create a well-rounded experience.
Dr. St. Thomas is also a Fitness Nutritional Specialist (FNS). Because nutrition contributes to how we feel and operate on a daily basis, Dr. St. Thomas can provide nutritional guidance that can be easily incorporated into your daily life to give you more energy and mental clarity without making you feel as though you are on a diet or giving up what you enjoy.
“If health is a state of harmony within the body,” says Dr. St. Thomas, wellness is the habit that creates it.”
