Hi, my name is Alexandra Weibel, and I am the owner of Weibel Chiropractic.

I have always been fascinated by the intricacies of the human body. As a little girl in Bulgaria I would go against the advice of my aunt who’s a pediatrician and would hide so that I could look through the pages of explicit anatomy texts.

At the age of 22 while on a one-year visit in the United States I discovered Chiropractic and embraced its holistic approach towards wellness with the full understanding and acceptance that all fields of patient care can and should coexist.

After graduating in Dec. of 2004 from Chiropractic College I began a three-year radiology residency program at the Clinic and Academics departments of Life Chiropractic College West and along with Highland Hospital of Oakland and Redwood City and Los Gatos MRI centers. The residency program and its completion gave me the opportunity to build the confidence needed to lecture on post-graduate seminars for chiropractors as well as to chiropractic students at Life Chiropractic College West.

I maintain a film-reading practice from home since October of 2007. Having studied about muscle relationships throughout my years in school and later, I realized the limitations of the field of radiology in diagnosing intrinsic muscle dysfunctions.

One day, by serendipity I came across Dr. Bronk's website on Advanced Muscle Reconditioning (AMR) http://labackandbody.com/and knew that same moment that I had stumbled upon one of the biggest TRUTHS in the field of pain management. When aggressive findings such as tumors, infections, fractures, and some congenital anomalies are ruled out and there is no clear understanding on what may be causing a person's pain, LOOK AT THE MUSCLES in the area and nearby. Ignore what looks like severe arthritis, muscle tendinopathy, disc disease, meniscal tears and so forth on the images. Start by evaluating the adjacent muscle patterns. There's a great chance the patient will respond positively right away. But like Dr. Bronk says, in most cases the results are earned with hard work from the practitioner and the patient. They work as a team in finding the most effective location in the body to work the pain pattern out.

AMR is a gentle technique that never causes over-pressing the spasmed muscle. Causing damage by applying it is impossible if you see how it's done, although discomfort for a few days after getting the technique done on a symptomatic region may be experienced. It is superficial work that feels deep as it does eventually recondition clumped muscle fibers.

I am a firm believer that proper joint movement and a body free of nerve interference is key for one's well being. And I am also a firm believer that AMR's powerful work allows for these two things. Give it a try especially if you have tried everything else and you think that your only solution is surgery or a steroid injection. They can be great and very powerful when necessary, but when it comes to pain management, you have probably seen the statistics on their (non)success rates.
