DR CINDY DOWNING
Dr. Cindy Downing DC, DACNB is also a board certified Chiropractic Neurologist. This next level of knowledge has given Dr. Downing the tools to address more complex neurological symptoms. It has also supported her in looking at the brain health and integrity of her patients.
Her passion of learning about the human body began with her undergraduate studies in nursing to become a registered nurse (RN). After being accepted into the RN program, she had a strong desire to change her focus towards a natural approach, to achieve and maintain peak health and wellness. Once she learned the holistic foundations of chiropractic she was inspired to begin studies to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. She received her degree from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA with academic honors of Magna Cum Laude. While pursuing her degree, Dr. Downing was involved with student council and volunteer work in the community.
Dr. Downing understands the potential of the body to heal itself with supportive measures. In 2006, while in Chiropractic College, she learned of Active Release Technique (ART) and began to study and apply it in the clinic as an intern. She volunteered at the 2009 Avia Wildflower Triathlon to provide ART to the athletes during the 3-day weekend event. Witnessing the positive effects it had on the athletes, she knew that was a key part of treatment needed to help her patients.
As Dr. Downing’s thirst for knowledge is never quenched she continues to add to her functional nutrition education as well. She incorporates this into her practice with cutting edge nutritional models and assessments to determine what the possible underlying metabolic issue is relating to her patient’s symptoms.
