Profile and Credentials
Dr. Amy Litteral, DC had her first spine surgery at the age of thirteen and realized that there must be alternatives to surgery and began her college education while a junior in high school. She then persued her baccalaureate degree at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio. She then moved to Houston, Texas and completed the chiropractic program at Texas Chiropractic College. While attending chiropractic college Amy also completed massage therapy training and became a massage therapist. While working with the Dean of Texas Chiropractic College, Amy was introduced to the benefits of yoga. By combing chiropractic adjustments and physical therapies, Dr. Amy is able to align your spine thereby decreasing nerve interference and allowing the body to function optimally. Amy then recommends massage and yoga programs to relax and lengthen the muscles that are contributing to your pain and disfunction. The combination of these sciences and healing arts provide a canvas whereby an individual program can be specifically created for you, to promote pain free health and mental well-being.
