Dr. Jessica Paige :: West Valley San Jose Chiropractor
Dr. Paige Discovers Chiropractic
I just wish I had known then what I know now…
I am not sure if crawling into the chiropractor for the first time and walking out was how chiropractic chose me. I suffered a nasty back injury during basketball season my sophomore year which landed me on the adjusting table the first time. Most people would be amazed how I could barely walk on the way in and how I left the office upright. However what was most intriguing and appealing to me about my experience, was how care was not just about the adjustment alone but about the bigger picture of living the wellness lifestyle. Not only was I able to return to basketball quickly, but getting adjusted regularly was great prevention for tennis and lacrosse (my other varsity sports) and improved my performance.
After graduating from Union College in Upstate New York, I packed my things and drove across country to San Jose to attend Palmer West Chiropractic College. I have to admit, the weather was very appealing when I was making my choice about which school to attend. I was initially surprised at how grueling the course work is considering I heard from many people in New York that chiropractors “they aren’t real doctors.” After three and a half years and a million tests, exams, practicals and boards later, I am very happy with the education I received at Palmer West. Working at the Outreach Clinics while in school provided me with life changing experiences. Just seeing the gratitude on a child’s face, the healing which had occurred and their overall improved health over time with chiropractic care was amazing!
When not in the office, you will find me coaching for Santa Clara Universities, coaching club lacrosse with STICK WITH IT, participating in running events like the TAJI 100 or dabbling in Tough Mudders. I have helped City Team with their coat drive and feeding the homeless on Thanksgiving, donating my time adjusting participants of the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, sorting food at Second Harvest Food Bank and collecting toys for the Marines Toys for Tots drive.
I get adjusted once a week, I exercise 4-5 days a week, I do not own any bottles of Advil, Tylenol, Motrin, or Excedrin! Not just following but living the chiropractic lifestyle I recommend for my family, friends and patients is a priority of mine!
