DR. ELIZABETH FARRELL
Dr. Liz is a 2006 graduate of Palmer Chiropractic College West, San Jose California and offers over 12 years of experience as a practicing Board Certified Chiropractor. Dr. Farrell’s overall experience began at age 5 when she first began receiving holistic chiropractic treatment from her now mentor. By the age of 12 Dr. Farrell decided her career path and by age 15 was employed as a Chiropractic Assistant, further exposing her to and strengthening her desire to assist people in improving their well being. As a student in chiropractic college, Dr. Farrell further broadened her experience by participating in the Clinic Abroad Program and by providing voluntary chiropractic care to the communities and orphanages of Brazil.
Dr. Farrell’s treatment philosophy is to identify faulty alignment and associated dysfunctional movement patterns, allowing an assessment of the complete picture. Through this process, the best treatment plan is determined to assist the patient in meeting his/her goals. She will then use manual, hands-on chiropractic treatment to assist in the correction of the alignment of the affected area to improve the patients’ condition or improve their pain.
Dr. Liz continues to advance her knowledge in rehabilitative exercises and is passionate about helping her patients. Her personal interests in sports and wellness transfer over to how she approaches and cares for her patients. She is an avid runner completing over 17 half marathons, 3 full marathons and 5 182 mile relay runs. In addition to running Dr. Liz has a steady practice in Yoga and Pilates as well as hiking and enjoying the beach with her husband.
