Why I am a Doctor of Chiropractic
Because I honor the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy.
Because I desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope.
Because I choose to care for the patient with the dis-ease, not the disease.
Because I wish to assist rather than intrude; to free rather than control.
Because I seek to correct the cause, not its effect.
Because I know doctors do not heal, only the body can heal itself.
Because I have been called to serve others.
Because I want to make a difference.
Because everyday I get to witness miracles..........
Because I know it is right!
Henlopen Chiropractic Center was founded in 1992 by Dr. Debra Hobbs, chiropractor extraodinaire, devoted mother and "witchy woman". She graced the community with her exceptional care for over 20 years. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond anyone's control, she was forced to medically retire and turn her thriving practice over to me. My goal is to continue the level of quality, safe and effective chiropractic care to my patients.
Patients are treated primarily with the Sacro-Occipital Technique of Chiropractic. Also implemented are Activator, Thompson, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Acupuncture, extremity adjusting, visceral manipulation, craniopathy, massage therapy, ultrasound, and spinal decompression. Each of these techniques are described in detail in later pages. Offering a variety of techniques allows me to individualize each patients care plan, taking into consideration age, condition, level of fitness, etc.
I treat infants from 10 days old to seniors 100 years old! (It's usually better to start before you are 100 though.)
