Dr. Michelle MacCarthy, DC
Dr. Michelle MacCarthy is classically trained as a chiropractor, and she practices a special type of chiropractic work that helps the spine and central nervous system work more efficiently and more effectively. Dr. Michelle is one of fewer than 150 female Doctors of Chiropractic in the world with the highest level of certification in Network Spinal Analysis (a gentle chiropractic approach) through the Association of Network Care.
While completing her business degree from Eastern Washington University in 2002, Michelle MacCarthy began a search for ways to minimize the debilitating pain her body was experiencing as a result of her active involvement in team sports. She was healthy, but suffered from chronic upper and lower back pain, her feet ached miserably and she struggled with a form of asthma that severely limited her breathing; she also suffered from allergies and was forced to take an array of medications. Her search led her to discover an important and highly recognized form of chiropractic help based on Network Spinal Analysis and Somato Respiratory Integration.
The new therapy produced a dramatic change: Dr. Michelle’s once chronic upper and lower back pain began to disappear, the pain in her feet that made it difficult to play sports and walk began to subside. No longer affected by allergies, she stopped taking medications, and even her dependence on prescription eyeglass ended.
Greatly inspired by the work of Network Spinal Analysis, Dr. Michelle then enrolled in New College of California in San Francisco and then Life West Chiropractic College in Hayward, CA, an internationally recognized school for chiropractic training, to become a doctor of chiropractic. She earned her post-graduate degree in Doctor of Chiropractic and became Dr. Michelle MacCarthy, DC in 2008.
Dr. Michelle’s goal is to build a strong community of people who value their health and who feel empowered to understand how they are affected by the world around them.
Dr. Michelle is also a Crossfit Level 1 certified trainer and is highly involved with the Crossfit community and training for local Crossfit competitions.
