Chiropractic is a healthcare profession emphasizing non-pharmacological and non-surgical intervention. Doctors of Chiropractic (chiropractors/DCs) are neuromusculoskeletal experts who assess and treat conditions impacting movement, function, pain, activity, and quality of life.
Chiropractors work with their patients to develop individualized treatment plans and specific goals. At McCarthy Chiropractic Inc we take a holistic approach, recognizing the many physical, social, emotional, nutritional, and mental components of our patients’ experiences. We also empower patients to become active participants in their wellness.
Visits typically includes chiropractic joint manipulative therapy (adjustments), manual therapy, myofascial release, therapeutic exercise, and neuromuscular re-education for relevant conditions. Chiropractic care is safe and effective, with techniques to support every patient, from babies, kids, and pregnant people to athletes, veterans, and retirees—and everyone in between!
Dr McCarthy obtained her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic West, graduating as Valedictorian in 2021. In preparation for her degree, she completed a six-month VA chiropractic clerkship in Des Moines Central Iowa Health Care System. Since then, Dr McCarthy has developed skills in pregnancy and prenatal chiropractic, to serve a larger patient population. She is currently in the Animal Chiropractic Program at Parker University studying techniques to care for your furry friends, too!
