Meet the Doctor
Dr. Brenda Covell is a native of Lockport, NY. After receiving her BS from SUNY Brockport she traveled and worked in the outdoor adventure industry as a whitewater guide and ski instructor.
It was through her travels and the desire to maintain the ability to work these physically demanding jobs that led to an appreciation of manual therapies and alternative healthcare.
The understanding that proper movement, diet and lifestyle habits could not only maintain health, but also prevent future illness and injury led her to a career in holistic healthcare.
She graduated from New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY.
Dr. Covell is highly trained in many treatment techniques including: Diversified adjusting, Activator instrument assisted adjusting, various soft tissue techniques, whole foods nutrition, yoga therapy, postural correction and rehabilitative exercises.
Additional training in movement assessment and muscle rehabilitation was received from the Motion Palpation Institute (MPI), Active Release Technique (ART) and the McKenzie Institute.
Dr. Covell is certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in Webster Technique.

Chiropractic care during pregnancy can relieve tension on the pelvis, helping the baby achieve optimal positioning. This can reduce labor and delivery time, as well as make mom more comfortable throughout pregnancy!
