I love being able to meet new people and get them feeling better.
Currently a 13 quarter chiropractic student at PALMER COLLEGE OF CHIROPRACTIC WEST, Anne is interning at Golden Chiropractic.
In her training, Anne has performed physical, neurologic, and orthopedic examinations and other procedures. She has diagnosed and treated musculoskeletal conditions. She’s manipulated the spinal column and other joints — adjusting, aligning, and correcting abnormalities caused by dysfunction. She’s also educated patients on the importance of chiropractic.
Healthcare and wellness are Anne’s life.
Anne has worked in the healthcare and wellness fields for about 7 years. “In 2015 I volunteered in the Emergency Department at Mount Nittany Medical Center. That same year I volunteered in the Physical Therapy Department at University Hospital. I also worked as an Optic Tech, EMS/EMT, and a Medical scribe. Now I am a Chiropractic Intern.”
Why did Anne choose chiropractic?
I believe that chiropractic assists in the body’s ability to heal itself.
Anne likes chiropractic’s ability to heal people without opioids and surgery. She’s also excited to build her own practice and learn to be an entrepreneur. “It allows chiropractors to start a family and still have a social life, while also maintaining their practice.”
Chiropractic has helped both my mother and me.
Anne’s mother was diagnosed with an L4/L5 herniated disc and was advised to get surgery immediately. She knew this would put her down for a while, and decided to seek more conservative care before agreeing to surgery. She saw a chiropractor who was able to help her with pain management, as well as get her back on her feet. Anne herself has had many injuries, including her Achilles, ribs, and low back. All of her injuries have been resolved with the help of chiropractic care.
Physical health is very important to Anne.
I am very athletic and enjoy working out. Fitness is a passion of mine.
Anne has been a fitness model for major fitness companies such as ATHLETA. She plans to eventually build her own fitness brand.
Why did Anne choose to intern at Golden Chiropractic?
Dr. Goldi is a joy to be around.
Anne likes that Dr. Goldi is easy-going, friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. She also likes the positive work environment for both patients and staff. “Dr. Goldi is very organized, and willing to teach and share information.”
We welcome Anne to our practice. She shares our joy of building relationships with patients and helping them reach optimal health. We’re glad Anne is joining us to help provide patient care.
