Dr. Gregory applies a "whole person" holistic approach to chiropractic care, which means searching for the underlying causes of dis-ease, discomfort, and pain as opposed to just chasing the pain and symptoms. Symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column and body, improper lifestyle habits and accumulation of stress. Non-invasive methods are used to be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit your individual needs.
Dr. Gregory not only works on your initial complaint but also incorporates the right technique for you. Though there are many ways to reach your goals, two of the therapies she specializes in are the Zone Technique and Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy which cover the full body as a unit. The Zone Technique, ignites specific areas from your brain to communicate with your spinal cord to function properly together as a unit. These nerve signals then go to specific "zones" in your body leading to full body balance leading to optimal health. Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy is a therapy that uses small wearable medical devices (discs) to relieve pain and help strengthen any area of your body. Not only does this decrease pain and inflammation but this therapy normalizes your nerves, tissues, organs, lymphatic and circulatory systems to stay in homeostasis and normalize keeping stress and inflammation away. Whether you are have back or neck pain, injured yourself during a workout, have headaches or just want to start taking care of yourself, she can help guide you to whatever your goals are.
More about Dr. Amie Gregory, DC, CCEP and Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy Instructor
I became interested in chiropractic while training as an amateur boxer. After workouts, I began to have wrist, lower back, and elbow pain. This was starting to affect my desk job duties and I began to see a chiropractor because a co-worker’s husband had a local practice. My physical problems diminished quickly, I caught colds and flus less often and it allowed me to continue doing what I loved. I could work out without pain and didn’t notice any problems at my job. During my care, I began to discover how amazing the natural process of healing was without medication or surgery. I had never experienced this type of care before. I was so blown away at how a chiropractor could facilitate such effective healing only using their hands and specific tools. This sparked my interest in chiropractic, anatomy, and physiology. I quickly quit my nine to five job at a San Francisco high tech company and enrolled in chiropractic school. I wanted to become a doctor to help other people the same way I was. I also wanted to give people something they may have not experienced before when seeking help from a doctor. I am passionate about what I do, constantly learn new techniques and modalities to help my patients any way I can. Health and wellness take some work along with changes in lifestyle habits and I am here to listen, guide and help you get results.
I love working with people who want a natural and holistic method of healing. I truly care about your health and well being and though you may come in with a specific issue, I will analyze your whole body to find out why this issue has presented itself and look to see if anything else is festering in your system and at risk to show up. I monitor your progress with hands-on tests and state of the art technology (“The Insight”) to cover all facets of health. Whether you are coming in with an athletic injury, car accident issue or to make sure you are in the best health you can be in, your health is my top priority. Using the Insight is accurate but non-invasive and painless. I will allow me to see what stress your body is under and areas to focus on that may not have surfaced yet so we can address them and make sure they do not impede your life in the future.
Being a former patient and athlete (boxing, softball, triathlete, tennis, boot camp), I understand the demands put on the body. We work together as a team to keep you not only able to do the things you love but make sure your health is in tip-top shape!

- Why go to the chiropractor for your full body health instead of just neck and back pain?
Well, neck and back pain is a health problem caused by stress on the body. This stress can be physical, emotional or chemical. The source of stress that is causing issues need to be addressed to make sure they don't fester and become long term problems.
Symptoms normally arise because of improper lifestyle habits such as repetitive actions, sitting, sleeping or standing in stressful positions, physical accidents, poor eating habits, and emotional stress (job, family etc.) Normally when people first come to the office they are in pain. We want to make sure you are not only pain-free but also healthy. In order to do this, we track your nerves from head to toe (feet, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles and hips) and discuss other habits you have in your life that may be contributing to your health issues.
We understand that each person is unique and may require different treatment methods in order to heal, so we tailor an individual care plan to get quicker and long lasting results just for you. We guide you in any way we can and are here to answer any questions you may have along the way. We know you have a lot of choices out there and we are confident that we will get results and keep you on the road to health.
STRESS ADAPTABILITY AND ANALYSIS:
When performing exams, in addition to any orthopedic, muscle testing and body analysis conducted on your first visit, it may also be necessary to use our Insight station which is the most innovative and scientific technology to track your care and progress. This is a great way to find out where your health is now and track progress along the way. This was developed by the space foundation which has been used on astronauts before being cleared for flight. It is used by Cardiologists, Physical Therapists and professional athletes to track health and progress and make sure their body is working efficiently and keeping them ready for competition.
What is included in this analysis?
- Thermograph (heat sensor)
- Electromyograph (muscle evaluation)
- Heart Rate Variability which listens and monitors your heart and your autonomic nervous system which regulates all functions in your body. It also measures skin temperature, circulation of blood and makes sure your systems are running efficiently and able to handle any stress your body is under. This means all organs in the body are analyzed to see if they are stressed as well. It is completely painless, non-invasive, safe and has no side effects.
