Heidi Smith, D.C.
Born and raised in Southern California, Dr. Heidi Smith's love of chiropractic began when she was just 12 years old. She was treated by a chiropractor for a tailbone injury incurred during one of her several hours of ballet. After a few visits, she was back to enjoying what she loved, and even excelled at the art because chiropractic care kept her better balanced.
Now, as a chiropractor herself, Dr. Smith is happy to help her patients get back to doing what they love and thriving at the things they enjoy doing. She has a gentle touch and is passionate about restoring function and health to her patients. Using a combination of hands-on adjusting, non-force techniques, and physiotherapy modalities, Dr. Smith finds and eliminates the cause of discomfort and pain providing long-term correction and relief.
After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree from Azusa Pacific University, Dr. Heidi earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College, Los Angeles, graduating cum laude. She was honored as the sole recipient of the Clinic Excellence Award of her graduating class. She is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is participating in the CACCP certification program.
She is the proud mother of two wonderful, active daughters who love to get their spines checked regularly to ensure they grow up healthy and to their fullest potential.
