As a licensed professional Doctor of Chiropractic, I aim to offer adequate medical services in order to meet my patients’ needs. I’m highly committed to offering high quality care to the Washington community. It’s taken me years of hard work to get where I am today, to the point where I can say your health is in good hands.
Underneath It All
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
The day of an accident, you may experience immediate discomfort. However, there are many times when victims of the accident only feel, some pain in the neck, back arms or legs. The amount of adrenaline that streams through our bodies following an accident can tend to mask the severity of the injuries that a person may have sustained during the accident.
Taking Care of You
Massage Techniques offered - 30 min, 60 min, and 90 min sessions. Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Prenatal Massage, Sports Massage, Neuromuscular Massage, and Thai Massage are offered.
Chronic Neck Pain Treatment
Taking Care of You
Through a holistic approach to medicine, I try viewing each patient as a whole rather than a single symptom to be treated. This is just one of many procedures I perform when coming up with any diagnosis. Your health deserves proper care and attention and I’m able to provide. Please contact me today to schedule an appointment.
First Days of Health
Establishing pelvic balance and alignment is an important reason to obtain chiropractic care during pregnancy. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby. This restriction is called intrauterine constraint. A misaligned pelvis may also make it difficult for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery. This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth.
Helping You Get Healthy
Even if you are not a chiropractic patient, you may come in for a nutritional consultation. Dr. Ritchie received her bachelors degree from Life University in dietetics in 2006 and will advise you based on your medical history, available lab results, medical diagnosis or other recent, valid test results to allow for a proper assessment of nutritional needs.
There are two featured services that we offer for (?):
Erchonia - Cold Laser Pain Management & Zerona - Body Contouring
ZERONA is the only FDA cleared medical procedure for the circumferential reduction of the waist, hips, thighs, and upper arms. ZERONA contours an anatomical area by safely disrupting the fat cell’s outer membranes, resulting in the release of stored intracellular lipids. Once released, the stored lipids can be safely removed and processed by the body.
Erchonia Laser Pain Animation
The North American Association of Laser Therapy (NAALT) adopted the term Phototherapy in 2003. This inclusive term is defined as: a therapeutic physical modality using photons (light energy) from the visible and infrared spectrum for tissue healing and pain
I stopped by Dr’s Choice today and found out that you had moved out. Not that my current insurance situation allows me to go there for treatment. You frequently cross my mind, every rain day for instance. I remain and will always be a big fan of how you do what you do! My ankle is still in an improved state from your expertise!
If you’re having pain in your jaw, Dr. Ritchie will be a tremendous help in diagnosing and treating the problem. As a Dentist I see numerous patients with TMD and I believe this disorder can be treated using Chiropractic treatment and Dental treatment in conjunction with each other. Terrific Person. Terrific Doctor.
