About Dr. Brown

Align_Chris_5151.jpg

I am a licensed chiropractor, certified clinical nutritionist, certified chiropractic sports physician, certified yoga instructor and certified personal trainer. As long as I can remember, my life has been about health and wellness. From elementary school through college, I participated in competitive as well as non-competitive sports. As an athlete, I became intimately aware of the interdependence and interrelationship of behavior, diet and attitude with overall health and well-being. I discovered that the more in sync that these factors are, the better my performance both on and off the field.

Since graduating from chiropractic college, I have continued to expand my knowledge base and understanding of health and wellness by studying and practicing yoga, meditation, fitness, nutrition and functional wellness. This integration of disciplines has greatly influenced the way in which I look at and practice healthcare.

As a practitioner in the field of functional medicine, I view the patient as a unique individual with a unique lifestyle, and thus unique needs. In other words, my practice is patient centered as opposed to symptom centered.

Over the years since graduating from chiropractic college I have appeared on the CBS Morning Show, Lifetime TV and E! TV, as well as in Bride's Magazine, Conde Nast Sports for Women, and Los Angeles Health & Fitness Magazine. 

In addition to being a National Board Certified Chiropractor licensed in New York, New Jersey and California, I also underwent additional graduate training to become a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, specializing in sports physiology and injuries. As a fitness specialist, I am a Certified Master Trainer with the Equinox Fitness Training Institute, where I taught fitness trainers anatomy and exercise physiology. Most recently, I have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher certification course.

I continue to engage in a variety of athletic and fitness endeavors, enjoying yoga, weight training and inline skating.
