Dr. 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 the University of Western States where she received honours 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 complementary 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 firefighter, 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.
