Laura Adams, DC

Laura has been in practice as a chiropractic physician since 1982, after graduating from Western States Chiropractic College in 1981. She earned her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry in 1976 at UCSB. She entered the field with a strong sense of mission about empowering people through their health care choices. Over the years, her collaborative relationships with other practitioners have deepened and created a strong sense of how her work fits into the spectrum of healing, health care and life. The Chiropractic Healing Center has been a satisfying and fruitful product of that pursuit.

Laura’s skills are focused mainly on manipulation of the spine, extremities, cranium and internal organs (viscera). The core of her manual approach is soft tissue work. Diagnosis and clinical response are the guiding basis in her work for designing treatment.

Laura’s techniques include:
• Neurologically-based soft tissue work
• Chiropractic adjusting of the spine and all extremities
• Craniofacial manipulation and CranioSacral therapy
• Visceral manipulation
• Graston Technique® soft tissue mobilization
• Frequency Specific Microcurrent
• Self care and exercise instruction

Laura’s approach to treatment is eclectic and she works with people of all ages. Each person plays the most important role in their own healing and her passion is to spark interest in that process.
Dr. Adams is currently contracted with PacificSource only.
