Meet Dr. Alison Cummings

A Remarkable Experience With Chiropractic

Dr. Alison CummingsDr. Alison returned home for the summer after her sophomore year in college complaining of chronic knee and foot pain. Her parents had just started seeing a chiropractor and saw great results.

After finding out about Dr. Alison’s problems, the chiropractor recommended they bring her in. Her mom replied that it wasn’t neck or back pain, so what could it do? The chiropractor explained that they work with the entire body because of chiropractic’s focus on the nerve system.

I went in, had my first adjustment, and it changed my life.”Dr. Alison

The chiropractor suggested to Dr. Alison that she consider chiropractic care, and it was a turning point. With a health psychology and neuroscience focus during her undergraduate years, she enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic.

While she was completing her Psychology undergraduate degree from Allegheny College in Western Pennsylvania, Dr. Alison also pursued a minor in English and Chemistry.

Since patient care has always been very important to Dr. Alison, she also completed a grant funded two-year research project titled, “Patient satisfaction, functional ability, perception of pain, and chiropractic care.”

Understanding the Body’s Abilities

Entering chiropractic school was a profound experience for Dr. Alison. She knew that the body was self-regulating and self-healing after completing an extensive, grant-based research project about chiropractic. Her chiropractic education, however, gave her the opportunity to be a facilitator of change.

I love helping people realize their true potential and understand that they were designed to be healthy. It’s a privilege to be on a healing journey with my patients.”

It was during her years at Palmer that Dr. Alison discovered upper cervical chiropractic care or NUCCA. With a science-based, neurological approach, it made perfect sense, and she decided to take advantage of this technique in her practice.

Dr. Alison is a member of NUCCA, the New York Chiropractic Association and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She is also certified in the Webster Technique through the ICPA to care for expecting moms.
