Meet Dr. Lin L. Chicoine-Peterson
“I’d like to explain my philosophy as a doctor of chiropractic, I would see my patients leave the adjusting table and go to the front desk and be out of alignment already. I questioned that because I am a very good chiropractor. So I began to study orthopedics, neurology, sports medicine, physical therapy, geriatrics, pediatrics, and clinical nutrition. All of these things help me assess the patient, but not really help them. In 1990, I found Dr. Dick Versendahl and Contact Reflex Analysis (CRA), where I learned that we live in a sea of chemicals. So the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the food we eat is inundated with chemicals. So what CRA did for me is help me to get to the core root of why the patient would not hold alignment.”
Yours in health, Dr. Lin
