Dr. Allie became a member of Maximized Living more than 10 years ago after being introduced to a network of doctors and chiropractic practitioners that changed her life and her views of the profession forever. Dr. Allie fully incorporates, into her West Hartford practice, co-located health food store, and her personal life, Maximized Living’s mission to fundamentally change the way people view and manage their health, while adopting the movement’s 5 essentials of health.
Dr Allie’s offers a functional approach to her comprehensive Chiropractic, helping patients to reach and maintain their best health and fitness. Dr Allie’s philosophy is to establish long-term relationships with patients through direct involvement with patient education and lifestyle and nutritional counseling to complement specific, efficient spinal correction; all vital components to successful and lasting recovery, natural pain management, immune support and relief from symptoms of chronic disease.
Growing up, Dr. Allie suffered multiple ear infections, strep throat and tonsillitis and spent a lot of time in her pediatrician’s office. At 18, she fell ill again with tonsillitis, but this time the antibiotics didn’t work and instead she was getting sicker and even had trouble drinking and eating. A marathon runner, she ended up hurting her back in a race around the same time and was in so much pain she wasn’t able to walk or drive a car. That’s when her parents sought new alternatives and decided to see a chiropractor.
The results were amazing; she was back running in a week and shortly after adjustment, 5-month long battle with tonsillitis ended. For Dr. Allie, seeing a chiropractor was a life-changing experience. She entered Chiropractic school, determined to share her experience with her patients and help them live a healthy life free of medication.
