Dr-Christy-Lock-SuttonMy personal struggle with Crohn’s disease ignited and fueled my passion for holistic approaches to wellness. My debilitating health experiences with Crohn’s, and the process of overcoming them, gave me the empathy and knowledge to relate to my patients. In addition, my experiences and education have taught me how to better support and help people with autoimmune diseases, digestive disorders, nutritional deficiencies, fatigue, adrenal, thyroid, and blood sugar issues.

I believe in the importance of treating the whole person through finding and fixing the underlying cause of illness rather than just treating symptoms. Regardless of the issue—autoimmune disease, low back pain, infertility, hormonal issues, knee pain, plantar fascitis, childhood developmental deficiencies, or headache—I approach all my patients with the perspective of treating holistically through correcting or removing the cause.

My strength is my ability to evaluate each patient individually and customize a tailored program that is based on an individual’s structural stability, body chemistry, and emotional health. Ultimately, my goal is for my patients to have improved quality of life, decreased pain, improved energy, and a better understanding of how their problems originated.

I graduated with honors from Parker College of Chiropractic, and received major and minor degrees in Microbiology and Biochemistry from Texas State University. In addition, I have bachelor’s degrees in Anatomy as well as Health and Wellness. Furthering my education with extensive post-graduate classes, I combine cutting-edge alternative medicine treatments with foundations in science.

I am constantly continuing my education so that I can keep up to date on progressive breakthroughs in the healing arts. I am currently enrolled in the Carrick Chiropractic Neurology Program, which teaches practitioners to improve brain and nervous system function without drugs or surgery.
