Dr. Nall’s Healthcare Background
Dr. Nall worked in traditional healthcare for more than sixteen years before beginning her career in chiropractic care. She proudly served in the United States Air Force for ten years where received her dental and medical training. She was promoted over her years in the Air Force from dental hygienist to oral surgery and eventually to maxio-facial reconstruction. After finishing her service, Dr. Nall was hired in the 1990s by the Loma Linda School of Dentistry to create a satellite dental facility for low-income patients.
It consists of a sixteen treatment room dental facility at SAC Norton in San Bernardino, CA, which is still in use today. She was later offered a position at the Veteran’s Medical Center in Loma Linda, and then went on to work in Implantology at the Loma Linda School of Dentistry as a surgical assistant/nurse. As she tells it, an on the job injury led her to the field of chiropractic:
All that Urgent Care offered me was pain pills and a lumbar brace belt, so I stopped at a chiropractic office on my way home. I honestly didn’t think that there was anything that Dr. Chase could do for me, but he changed my life. After two years, all sorts of things in my body corrected itself, including some of my allergies. I decided then that I wanted to change careers.
The Story Continues
At Nall Advanced Chiropractic, Dr. Nall’s goal is to help patients find natural solutions to postural imbalances that allow for increased range of motion and reduction of pain. Her extensive chiropractic education and training make her highly qualified to handle muscle and joint issues, as well as non-crisis healthcare needs. With the philosophy that it takes time to truly help a patient, Dr. Nall thoroughly investigates health concerns and does everything in her power to discover and treat pain at its source, rather than covering up symptoms of bigger issues. The positive results from her ability to gently but effectively perform techniques that allows for the body to heal itself in musculoskeletal and nervous system issues, as well as her genuine compassion for each of her patients, has set her apart from her peers around the country.
Using the latest equipment, Dr. Nall has successfully corrected cases that were deemed incurable by other medical professionals. She is constantly looking out for the newest technologies on the market and is certified in the Graston Technique, a therapeutic method for diagnosing and treating disorders of the skeletal muscles and related connective issues. She noted:
The Graston Technique physically breaks down adhesions, scar tissue, and knots to increase sensation, range of motion, and circulation. Many times people associate a knot as to the cause of a slight back or shoulder pain, but if you get a knot that’s compressing a nerve, it can cause the nerve to not function at full capacity, so removing the knot, adhesion or scar tissue can be essential in the reduction of pain and for the correction of reduced range of motion. It has even helped those with diabetic neuropathy to regain sensation and circulation of the feet and legs.
Still relatively early on in her career, Dr. Nall’s priority right now is to focus on treatment, but in the future would like to be involved in seminars and lectures as well as sharing what she has learned both first-hand and from other top chiropractors. She has already been asked to speak about her techniques and in the future hopes to teach other chiropractors how to fine-tune their treatments to get the best possible results.
