Dr. Cary DeSmidt is a board certified chiropractic physician who graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas.
She grew up in a town an hour outside of Chicago, Illiniois, graduating from North Park University with an undergraduate degree in Biology. Although she has spent most of her life in the Midwest, she is pleased to have the opportunity to deliver chiropractic care to the people around Charleston, South Carolina.
Dr DeSmidt is trained in cranial adjustments Turner style (C.A.T.S), non-surgical Cosmetic Correction Technique for facial distortions, Webster technique (WT), and Advanced Clinical Kinesiology (ACK) using meridian therapy (an Eastern healing art).
Dr. DeSmidt found that chiropractic greatly improved her quality of life as a freshman in high school. With treatment, she was able to perform athletically without using an inhaler at track meets and tennis matches, as well as participate in swim meets without the annual bout of bronchitis. More noticeably, were the chronic ear infections since birth and constant use of medication that became non-existent with chiropractic adjustments, improving her overall hearing. She began to “practice what had been preached” to her by implementing more organic and raw foods, sprouting foods, juicing, and pro-biotics to aid in digestion and allow her body to heal.
It was during graduate school, that Dr. DeSmidt realized the importance of fitness and health in today's society. To better assist patients with physical exercise “do's,” she worked with both experienced trainers and chiropractors to understand how to keep the brain and spine functioning at a higher level by using specific exercise techniques, weights, and body weight to stay in shape. It was through her learning and applying on a daily basis that enabled her to participate in the Texas Shredder Figure Competition before graduating. With her experience, Dr. DeSmidt has helped patients, sport enthusiasts, body builders, and the injured- male and female. Whether you have many years of exercising or just looking to start exercising, Dr. DeSmidt can assist you.
An advocate for infants and children with autism, learning disabilities, ADHD, and other common conditions, Dr. DeSmidt works with parents to enable their children to live life to their highest potential.
