Aimee completed her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in December 2012. She is also licensed to practice chiropractic in the state of Washington.
In college, I competed in track and field and ended up with a bad neck and shoulder injury. After two years of no relief with the traditional treatment with medical doctors, I was referred to a chiropractor, and I began to see changes immediately, not just in my neck and shoulder, but in my overall health! I was inspired to find out more about chiropractic and after I did, I decided to pursue a career so that I could help others like me - people who have been living with pain for a long time and were losing hope in getting any relief.
I absolutely love what I do! Helping and serving other people is an amazing thing! I love that I get to talk to people all day, hear their stories, learn about their experiences and who they are. And getting to share my knowledge and use it to help people get to a better state of health and back to the activities that they love is a dream come true!
The first thing I noticed about the Lawlor Clinic was how they treat people. They are honest, patient-centered and treat every person with individual care and attention.
Aimee takes a whole-person approach to treatments, utilizing chiropractic adjustments as well as soft tissue treatments, exercises, and nutrition.
Aimee enjoys working with many people, but she has developed a particular interest in treating pregnant women. She is certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and has studied other treatment methods, including the Sacro Occipital Technique. She also has a passion for working with athletes and active people. She has worked at numerous sporting events in California, including the San Francisco Half marathon, NorthFace endurance challenge, Masters Track and Field Championships and the Sea Otter Classic.
