Finding the Path to Chiropractic
‘’I was just four years old when the doctors informed my parents that I had crooked hips. I had leg braces, hip braces and special shoes, wearing them during all waking hours for two entire years. In the end, nothing had changed. The doctors told my parents that I was going to be physically challenged for life.
“It wasn’t until I was 8 years of age that we found a better solution through chiropractic care. A chiropractor was performing scoliosis screenings on all students in my school, and I tested positive for it. When my mom saw the information I was sent home with, she said I should see a chiropractor. My scoliosis cleared quickly because of receiving chiropractic care at such a young age. My hips balanced, too, and we realized the problem was actually in my spine.
I knew chiropractic was my calling and that this amazing profession would allow me to help others like I was helped.
Becoming a Natural Healer
Dr. Antoinette completed her undergraduate education at The Medical University of South Carolina and continued her pursuit of her chiropractic degree at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. Although originally, she was unaware of how vast this chiropractic philosophy, science and art would deeply connect with her inner passion for helping others; at Life, everything quickly began to fall into place and she felt at home in this chosen profession.
Chiropractic care for the pediatric patient quickly became a passion for Dr. Antoinette. She completed extensive 120+ hour coursework with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) as well as the EPIC Pediatrics Program. She has trained with well-known chiropractic pediatric specialists such as Dr. Anthony Ebel, Dr. David Jackson, and Dr. Ogi Ressel.
