Dr. Rachel A. Northern
Dr. Rachel Northern graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She is certified and specializes in Advanced Activator technique, which is a specific, low force chiropractic adjustment. Using the Activator method, Dr. Rachel can easily adjust all patients, from newborn babies to senior citizens, without twisting, turning, or “cracking” the body.
Dr. Rachel also specializes in nutrition therapy, and utilizes whole food supplements to provide nutritional supplementation for many deficiencies in the body caused by physical, chemical and emotional imbalances. By using hair and saliva tests, she can also determine chemical toxicity, hormonal imbalances and mineral disparities, also often treatable through nutritional supplements.
In her efforts to be actively involved in the community, she gives regular health talks and spinal screenings at various public community events. She is an active speaker on numerous health topics, such as female hormones, stress, detoxification, and pediatric chiropractic.
Dr. Rachel's mission is to provide quality healthcare to all who desire it; to educate people on the body's ability to heal itself with the elimination of nervous system interference; to work in harmony with other healthcare professionals to provide the best care for the patient; and to offer care to those who have less access—especially the aging population.
Dr. Rachel lives in Richmond with her husband and two children, and is an active member of her church, and of the Johnsburg Area Business Association.
