Jennifer L. Bratt, DC
Dr. Bratt believes that the true job of any doctor is to ultimately restore the proper functioning of the body and quality of life. Critical to her belief, is her focus to improve overall health and not just to alleviate disease or mask symptoms with the use of medications. A Chiropractor’s main job is to find and correct vertebral subluxations (misaligned vertebra that may cause nervous system interference). Because the nerves extend from the spine and go to every cell, tissue, and organ in the body, many conditions can benefit from Chiropractic adjustment, including:
• Neck pain
• Shoulder pain
• Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
• Carpal Tunnel
• Back pain
• Sciatica/Hip pain
• Knee pain
• Plantar Fasciitis
As a previous cross country and half marathon runner, Dr. Bratt can also alleviate pain associated with IT Band Syndrome, the feet, hamstrings, & shin splints.
For those with diagnoses of Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Addictions, and other various stressors, Dr. Bratt will work with you to understand how emotional pain creates physical pain that can be alleviated through Chiropractic adjustments.
Dr. Bratt works together with other practitioners, including Massage Therapists and Psychotherapists, to coordinate care in an effort to maximize health and function for a truly holistic perspective; mind, body, and soul. She also embraces the unique and individual needs of each of her patients. For those who are already familiar with Chiropractic care, she utilizes several highly-effective adjusting techniques including Diversified Technique, Gonstead, Thompson Drop, and Extremity Adjusting.
Dr. Bratt received a Bachelor of Science in Zoology from the State University of New York at Oswego. Immediately following the completion of her undergraduate work, she began her graduate studies at the New York Chiropractic College, located in Seneca Falls, New York. Dr. Bratt graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. She now lives in Central PA with her husband and two children.
