Enjoy our friendly office in the small mountain town of Payson AZ. Dr Elizabeth Summers has over 33 years of experience with back pain, neck pain, headaches, and most extremity problems. Patients are surprised to find that foot pain and shoulder problems respond well to Chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic is safe and effective as an alternative to addicting drugs and surgery.
Today's Doctor of Chiropractic is well educated. After completing the same undergraduate study that other types of doctors get, chiropractic doctors receive still another four years of postgraduate college education. Before practicing, they pass a rigorous National Board Examination and meet stringent licensing requirements.
The doctor graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic. She moved to Arizona and started practice in 1979. She is licensed in acupuncture and physiotherapy. She has also taken many courses in nutrition and can analyse your needs.
At our clinic you will find that you are more than a notation in a medical chart. Dr Summers maintains a personal interest in each patient's total wellbeing. We start with a thorough examination and assess your areas of concern, as well as carefully consider your health history. We are trained in x-ray techniques, however do not maintain an x-ray unit on the premises. Should Dr. Summers determine you need x-rays, you will be referred to Simon Med for them. Based on the analysis of your initial examination, your treatment could consist of activator adjustments (a non force instrument adjustment), therapies, applied kinesiology, and nutritional counseling. You may also receive some diet counseling as well as exercise therapy.
