Chiropractor Lisa Owen D.C.
When I was 28, I developed a health condition that was to take over my whole life. It was that condition that put me on the path to becoming a chiropractor. After years of seeing the “top medical doctors” I realized they could not address my health concerns. It was my Chiropractor that was the first Doctor that made any sense. It was my experience with chiropractic adjustments and changing my diet that turned my illness around and gave me my life back. Part of my healing journey was journaling a meditation. It was here that I realized how much of the world was in need of doctors like that and how hard they were to find. Society was in need of this type of medicine and I set out to be a part of it.
I received my education at St. Andrew’s High School for Girls in Kingston, Jamaica. My favorite teachers were those that were excited about their subject and the strict disciplinarians, as they had a way of bringing about the best in me. Later, my family migrated to the United States and I attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles since it was close to our new home and pursued a Bachelors of Business Administration. Once I realized that my calling was chiropractic, I attended Life Chiropractic University in Atlanta, GA and this is where my chiropractic journey began.
What I found most interesting is the brain, neurology, how the brain worked and how it affected the body, from hormones to those desiccating nerve tracts. I have been extremely fascinated with the relationship between the brain, emotions, neurotransmitters, and how they affect your health so I continued my education and took a course in Applied Kinesiology which addressed many of these issues looking for the real cause. In 2003 I was certified by the International Board of Applied Clinical Kinesiologists. No education is complete without studying Chinese Medicine so I received Certification from the International Association of Medical Acupuncturists in 2012. I have attended numerous courses on functional medicine and nutrition and application of herbs in treating many common health conditions. I have always sought to study from the best in the field so that I can offer my patients the best possible care.
At Westside Chiropractic Center, we attempt to help as many people as possible obtain optimal physical and mental health. My philosophy is that real healing comes from the inside and works its way out. I feel that medicine should be redefined as that which improves physical and mental well-being. Many drugs and vaccinations would not fit in this category as they mostly cover up symptoms, manage chronic problems and often create even more diseases. Remember those old cowboy movies when an Indian would say something is good medicine, they were not referring to what comes to mind now, when we think of medicine, they were referring to herbs and natural healers. I can’t help noticing that one week at the beach with no stress often works better than 52 adjustments or $70,000 worth of drugs. Some of our most expensive drugs, such as chemo therapy have never been tested against the beach, a placebo or even vitamin C. Studies show that laughing, love, relationships, and prayer can have a far more beneficial effect on your health the any drug ever can.
Dr. Lisa Owen established her practice in Plantation FL near the Westside Hospital Vicinity approximately 4 years ago. She felt so many people suffered health conditions that resulted in hospitalization that could have been avoided with regular chiropractic care.
Dr. Owen has been practicing in South Florida for 15 years and in Broward County since 2003. She moved to Plantation FL because it is centralized in Broward County and easy to get to from most locations. The community is well kept with plenty of great places such as Central Park. She thought it would be a great place to connect with families that have prioritized their health.
The human body is self-healing, it has healed every cut or condition you have had from the day you were born. Until the day you die, you will maintain the potential for unlimited healing. The ads on TV actually encourage you to believe that this power comes from drugs and surgery and create a feeling of insecurity about your own healing abilities. Chiropractic works with the body’s most powerful healing power, you, and removes obstructions to healing, called subluxations. This is why chiropractic patients have defied science for years. Studies show chiropractic care is not only most effective for back pain, neck pain and headaches but is also effective in treating endless health conditions such as hypertension and asthma.
People that come to Westside Chiropractic Center are usually in search of fast natural pain relief, so getting you out of pain is our first priority. However, our philosophy is that if you are sick it is one of 3 issues: emotional, structural or biochemical. We have incorporated several modalities into our treatment plans to incorporate these issues if you desire. This includes hormone and neurotransmitter balancing, acupuncture, homeopathics, herbs, injectable nutrients, functional blood chemistry evaluation and much more.
At Westside Chiropractic Center, we always try to give our patients more than they expect, and provide the highest quality care. We respect your time and make it easy for Plantation FL families to incorporate chiropractic care into even the busiest schedule.
We offer years of experience combined with the most up-to-date techniques to help you get out of pain quickly and obtain optimal wellness. We utilize proven therapies in addressing other areas that affect your health such as biochemical issues (which would include issues such as hormones, inflammation, and neurotransmitters) that can be the real cause of pain. Our goal is to address the whole person, since you are unique, we offer complete health assessments and a variety of proven treatments to help you recover your health.
Dr. Lisa Owen and her team encourage everyone to see if chiropractic care can help them. No matter how long you have suffered and how many doctors you have seen, we have helped when many others have failed. Our biggest satisfaction is seeing patients who thought they would have pain or bad health for years, thrive after just a few visits. We also see children and love seeing them benefit and cope better with life after receiving chiropractic care.
What makes us unique is that Dr. Owen has extensive studies not only in chiropractic but many other areas of natural medicine as well, that can help you maintain your health. Our practice offers complete neurological and orthopedic evaluation. Our team is passionate about what we do and are always looking for new ways to improve the care we provide in our office. Dr. Owen has special training in functional medicine, hormone balancing, homeopathy, acupuncture and much more in order to provide the best scientifically proven health care.
