Since receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Burns I have overcome so many conditions! I went to her on a recommendation to find relief from chronic neck pain and have overcome a long list of conditions. I was a doubter and had a lot of fear about receiving her care. She acknowledged it and always kept my concerns part of her treatment. She offers insight to the how's and why chiropractic adjustments work, and has been encouraging to pursue other methods of care to continue my goal to good health.

I started going to Dr. Burns more than a year ago after wrenching my back while gardening. She helped me get back to gardening. She also helped me get rid of my plantar fascitis. Dr. Burns really knows her stuff!

I loved how thorough Dr. Burns is. Her staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. I not only learned why I have back pain, but how to prevent it from coming back.

Dr. Burns says...

My career began in a San Francisco clinic with 15 chiropractors on staff. We delivered services to over 2000 patients per month, and provided Back Care Classes in Chinese, Spanish, Japanese and English on a weekly basis.

This immersion into the application of the art, science, and philosophy of chiropractic provided valuable insight regarding diagnosis and case management.  

My level of comfort in explaining the complexities of the nervous system in an easy to understand format came from those early days and has lead to long term success in the management of many chronic spine disorders.

Patients who have been plagued with back pain on and off for years find that they now have resources, enjoy greater overall health, and can maintain and activity level that they never thought possible.

We want to share this with you. Everyone should know how to care for their spine!

Just like teeth, Chiropractic is like Dental Floss for the spine!!!

Dr. Burns says...

In addition to having had the opportunity to work one of the busiest practices in San Francisco, I have successfully owned, and managed a Locum Tenens business providing relief coverage for other chiropractors in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts for over ten years. 

When the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic opened it's door in the late 90's I was privileged to be a Clinician for the first two graduating classes in the student clinic.
