Dr. Andrea focuses on improving health by pinpointing the cause of symptoms/dysfunction in the body rather than masking them. Dr. Andrea uses a whole body approach and does not just treat the spine, but also restores movement to the extremities (shoulders, hands, elbows, knees and feet) to ensure that the body is functioning maximally. Dr. Andrea concentrates on improving immune system function, decreasing prenatal discomfort, improving sleep, reducing allergies, eliminating aches/pains, and improving overall wellness.
