CHIROPRACTOR BRITTANY WATSON, D.C.
A native of San Diego herself, Dr. Brittany Watson has returned to North County to establish practice after having earned her Doctorate Degree from Life College West in the San Francisco Bay area. She welcomes all those looking to better their opportunity for optimal health within the office of Carlsbad Chiropractic and Integrative Wellness, conveniently located blocks from the coastline in downtown Carlsbad Village. With a heart to serve full families, the mission of her practice is to educate and empower future generations on lasting health, one family at a time.
Dr. Britt received her first adjustment at only a few years of age, although it happened to be many years later that she remembers starting chiropractic care initially for a swimming injury. Her interest in the human frame peaked while studying to eventually earn her Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at San Diego State University. While at SDSU she accrued much experience in the field of physical therapy in private outpatient offices, local hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and even a medical trip abroad to Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It became common that she’d find herself sharing time around plenty of children and a growing thread of neurologically-challenged individuals. It was by no accident that chiropractic found its way back into her life when she was searching for the approach of healing to which she could share her gifts most with others. As a regular chiropractic patient for wellness, she’s learned through her own health breakthroughs that a body well-connected is a life well-expressed.
You can find her staying up to date with the latest in family care, as Dr. Britt is a member of the International Pediatrics Association, where she is a qualified candidate for CACCP certification and certified in Webster Technique for pregnancy. Her gentle, specific approach to overall care in the office utilizes components of Drop Table, Torque-Release-Technique, and manual “hands-on” delivery of adjustments. Her patients appreciate the individualized approach to getting checked for vertebral subluxation and achieving gentle correction. State-of-the-art technology and digital x-ray is also readily available on-site to guide your care needs in the office. With health as our greatest asset, Dr. Britt enjoys leading her patients to understand that with every adjustment your body is reorganizing to a greater potential for your unique expression of life!
