Because of her extensive training and experience, Dr. Helen can help her clients live pain-free lives while increasing range of motion and strengthening their bodies through the application of multiple modalities, including:

    A variety of traditional, gentle and non-forceful chiropractic techniques to achieve the ultimate result of spinal realignment
    Soft-tissue work to reduce muscle tightness and spasms
    Physical therapy to increase flexibility, mobility, and strength
    Acupuncture to enhance the benefits of chiropractic adjustments
    Ergonomics to prevent re-aggravation and promote good posture

    Dr. Helen has worked with Thriving Chiropractic since 2007 and looks forward to serving the Mountain View community for years to come. She has received numerous awards over the last ten years, including Talk of The Town, The Best of Mountain View, and The 2017 Women of Distinction List.
