While growing up in New Jersey, majoring in the sciences at Ramapo College of New Jersey, attaining a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, completing her residency program in Wisconsin, volunteering chiropractic services in Morocco, attaining her certification in Pediatrics, graduating with international certification for large & small animal chiropractic (IVCA graduate), becoming a certified medical examiner for FMCSA; Dr. Huntsinger has always been fascinated with the sciences and even more so with the inner workings of the body and its systems. "Everything is connected within, the body as a whole is a bunch of intra-related systems dependent on each other to keep the body up and running in homeostasis (balance). So naturally, if something is not working in rhythm with the rest of the body, then the body won't work properly as a whole." Plus, Chiropractic is a safe and drug-free way to attain better health. That is why chiropractic makes perfect sense to Dr. Huntsinger as a great and proven cost effective way for achieving and maintaining your health. "I feel fine, so why should I see a chiropractor?" or "I only get pain when I do this …" or "The pain is only for a couple of days and then it goes away…" or the dreaded "I've had it for years and I just thought it was normal…" says the average everyday go-er, meanwhile doctors of chiropractic gasps in disbelief someone could live this way! These are statements common among people that are mis-informed or aren't familiar with the preventative benefits that chiropractic care can offer for one's health. Research now shows what many happy chiropractic patients have been experiencing for years…that is… that chiropractic adjustments of the spine leads to improved performance and decreased deterioration. Typically, most people don't follow preventative guidelines recommended by doctors, for example, when was the last time you flossed your teeth, performed a prostate/breast examination, had your cholesterol tested, or had a spinal screening…have you ever? Surprising, some people can actually say never to all of the above! Usually, most people wait till their body's sends out warning signals (pain & other unwanted symptoms) that something is out of balance within, before seeking help to correct the problem. This is becoming even more common now, especially with the rising costs of healthcare and lack of coverage. Worse yet, some people may even choose to avoid seeking help all together and just wait it out; thinking it will go away on its own. This waiting game usually becomes a downward spiral, because the underlying problem often continues to goes uncorrected, allowing symptoms to linger and many times become worse, harder and/or more expensive to treat. Sometimes people wait till their symptoms are so unbearable that they are unable to participate in common activities of daily living. This pattern of behavior should be avoided because it is destructive and allows for the onset of more permanent and chronic degenerative changes…a.k.a. arthritis. The real importance of chiropractic care is to make sure that these systems within the body are communicating openly and fluently, by a nervous system that is free from interference and fixations. The body is wonderful at adaptation, but STRESS (thoughts, traumas, toxins) can and often do overpower the body which leads to Vertebral Subluxation Complexes..aka... "misalignments." When the body is stressed, it makes sense that you become more prone to illness and disease. Obviously you should not wait till you have a major breakdown. Dr. Huntsinger realizes that Chiropractic is not a cure for everything, and will refer out when deemed medically necessary, but a "subluxation-free" body having strength / flexibility & energy can lead to a healthier, happier life!

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
