Her perspective on care is to provide gentle, specific care for the body so the nervous system can function at its best. Dr. Sadie achieves this by understanding the goals and needs of each person, tailoring the approach based on the capacity and interests of the person.

Techniques she uses are:

  • Diversified (hands-on): Manual chiropractic adjustments effective for joint mobility and function. May or may not make “cracking” noise, this sound is gas releasing between the spinal joint fluid.
  • Activator: Instrument assisted care, allows for adjustment without bringing joints past normal range of motion.
  • Webster’s: Natural way to improve balance of ligaments, muscles, tendons, and joints in pregnant mothers. Can also be helpful for those trying to conceive or with menstrual strain.
  • Upper Cervical:  Highly specific and gentle technique addressing occiput and first two spinal vertebrae.
  • Thompson:  Gentle technique that uses drops on the table to assist adjustment.
  • Neuro-Emotional Technique: Identifying mind-body connection of traumatic events, gentle way to neutralize harmful cycles that can be stored in the nervous system.
  • Cranial Adjusting: The bones and joints in the skull have slight range of motion, when misaligned can impact sinus function, headaches, TMJ, eye tension, and nervous system tone.

Professionally, Dr. Sadie ensures best patient outcomes by researching her cases and working alongside other healthcare professionals. She has had great success working with postural stress, athletes, geriatric, CPTSD and prenatal populations.

She believes that at its core, the body is designed to move and communicate to us effectively. Dr. Sadie has seen first hand that restoring the nervous system’s function with movement can change the trajectory for people’s lives for the better.
