"Experience the Future of Medicine"

Wendy Willmon, DC

Dr Wendy WillmonDr. Wendy Willmon has provided excellence in chiropractic medicine for over twenty years .  She provides diversified chiropractic manipulation with a multitude of therapies including massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy, therapeutic stretching, lumbar and cervical traction, flexion-distraction, ultrasound and electric muscle stimulation and many other supplementary modalities.  In addition to the spine and extremities, she has a desire to optimize the overall health of her patients.  She will spend the time necessary to evaluate various health concerns including such things as chronic inflammation, autoimmune disorders and hormonal imbalances and offers ways to supplement the body's own natural drive for homeostasis. She also enjoys working with expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy and offers the Webster method and other techniques to ensure the most comfortable experience possible.

Issues such as inflammation, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and autoimmune disorders can have a huge impact on the body’s ability to heal and control pain.  As a provider at Avante I work to identify contributing factors that may be negatively affecting the musculoskeletal system and prevent positive treatment progression.  My goal is to encompass all aspects of your health, working with additional Avante providers when necessary, to implement a truly comprehensive and effective treatment plan. 

Dr. Willmon graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor’s degree in Pre-medicine and Biology and a minor in Chemistry and Psychology.  She continued her education at University of Western States where she received honors with a Doctorate of Chiropractic.  While acquiring her doctoral degree she spent additional hours learning massage and soft tissue techniques to further expand her skill set.  That motivation to learn has continued into her working career with a desire to develop new skills and advance her knowledge with a variety of complimentary education.

She appreciates communicating and cooperating with other health care professionals as part of an integrative team approach.   She strives to provide thorough, high-quality care, tailored to each patient’s needs while providing the tools her patients require to maintain optimal health and well being.  She understands that each person is unique and entitled to individualized consideration and that quality care usually involves the understanding and correlating of many factors into a comprehensive plan of well-being.

 Her spare time is spent with her family including her husband, an Anchorage fire fighter, two children and a couple of rambunctious dogs exploring Alaska and enjoying the occasional trips out of state. You’ll also find her at the gym where her interest in anatomy and kinesiology are combined with a love of weightlifting.

Patient Testimonials

  • "I love going to Avante...they take pride in patient care and are always willing to accommodate... simply the best.."CSL
  • "I have been a patient at Avante for 5 yrs now, and I have only positive things to say about the quality of the care that I receive from the entire facility. From the smiles at the front desk to the efficient lab techs and all of the staff in between. My health has turned around thanks to the care from Kiki Green and Grant Gibbs. Competent, caring and constantly striving for the newest information available to share with me. They embody the best in what I want in Holistic and Modern Medical care - JH 
  • "I came to Avante about 8 months ago when I was looking for a doctor after moving to Alaska, my husband and I saw Dr. Jana.  We were pleased with the office and esp. the care we received from Dr. Jana. It feels good to leave a doctors office not loaded down with lists of new medicines but  positive thoughts of lifestyle changes that will produce better health. I started seeing Tina at the first of November and two days after the first acupuncture treatment I was in the least amount of pain in over 25 years.  Believe me I have tried many different medical treatments some with more success than others.  I am so encouraged to look forward to more mobility and greater health! I feel younger and more energetic. Thank you Avante.  I also love the patient portal and have found that the staff always responds to my online questions." - PM

  • "I have been a patient of Avante's for several years now, and I have only wonderful things to say about their business. The place is beautiful and welcoming, the staff are all very helpful and kind, and the providers, all 3 I have seen, currently Kikki Green and Grant Gibbs, have been intelligent, intuitive and efficient. They care about you and your health. The lab is clean and full service and the nutritional supplements are extensive and high quality. The use of the Patient Portal is outstanding!  Give yourself extra time is my only recommendation as they sometimes get backed up on scheduling." - JH
