ABOUT

Dr. Phillips at Structural Regenesis;
I am a licensed Naprapathic doctor, which is a connective tissue specialist. Through physical therapeutic measures I address pain caused by physio dysfunctions. This pain can be due to chronic disease, injury, acute trauma, or misuse and overuse.  

To promote health, and prevent physical dysfunctions your first appointment involves comprehensive orthopedic evaluations, physical therapeutic treatments, and rehabilitation exercises. Additionally, if needed systemic measures will be recommended, such as nutritional coaching or natural remedies. 
 

The body has the capacity to find health and vitality. For example, we heal from a cut or the flu. As a practitioner my goal is to assist the body to repair itself by means of applied therapeutics, nutrition, exercise, natural remedies and in house assistive therapies such as e-stim, guasha, infrared and much more.  Whatever the circumstances that created physiological dysfunction and pain within you, it is my objective to aide you in feeling restored and

resolve the pain causing problems. To quote one of my professors, Dr. Beau Hightower, "results matter"!

     
I have actively been involved in workings of the body since 1989, with my first job as an opticians working for an optometrist. I'm a life long learner and my training continues until today. I bring years of diverse training and knowledge in, but not limited to only the following modalities:

 

  • Doctor of Naprapathic Medicine licensed

  • GAPS Practitioner certified 

  • Bio-dynamic Cranial Sacral Therapy certified 

  • Applied Osteopathic Methods (10+ years)

  • Muscle Energy Techniques

  • Myofascial Release

  • Esthiology licensed 

PHYSIOTHERAPY

Appointments include the following:

  • An extensive review of personal health history (initial appointment), and physical examination (all appointments).
     

  • Therapies are based on indiviual history, and findings. The appointments involve, hands on palpation and releasing of the associated structures by way of naprapathic release of  “buckled ligaments”, in addition to linked structural layers and corresponding neural tissue.
     

  • Postural counseling consisting of individualized exercises will be given at appropriate time within the therapy. Manual techniques are often combined with advice regarding physical activity, ergonomics and rehabilitative exercises in order to "teach you how to fish"  moving forward, to actively engage you in feeling great for days to come.
     

  • When necessary nutritional counseling is incorporated.

Utilization of restorative modalities, including the following:

  • Heat penetration via hot packs, heating pads, infrared, ultrasound and hydrotherapy resulting in pain relief, and improve localized blood flow. These treatments are generally used on patients with subacute and chronic conditions, to reduce pain, muscle spasms, via relaxing the skeletal muscles and decreased joint stiffness.
     

  • Cold dispersion by way of cold packs, ice massage, cold baths, vapocoolant sprays, and cold compression units. These modalities lower local tissue temperature to decrease pain, blood flow, edema, inflammation, muscle spasm, and metabolic demand. Indicated for treating conditions such as  acute inflammation and edema, spasticity, pain, arthritis, bursitis, muscle strain and ligament sprain, muscle spasm, and myofascial trigger points.
     

  • Light therapy such as LED uses low powered light frequencies to produce a response in the tissue with the purpose of stimulating fibroblast function and accelerating connective tissue repair. Advantageous for treating decrease acute and chronic pain and inflammation, stimulate collagen metabolism and promote wound healing.
     

  • Hydrotherapy such as hydroculator heat packs, and hot towels, used for pain relief, increase local blood flow, metabolism and elasticity of connective tissues.
     

  • Fluidotherapy such as blown hot air is most commonly indicated for upper extremities such as wrist, hands and arms to diminish pain, edema and stiffness.
     

  • Electrotherapies such as ultrasound, radial shockwave therapy and, transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TENS) to stimulate nerve or muscle via electrodes. This is beneficial for acute and chronic pain, neuromuscular disease, joint effusion and edema, disuse muscle atrophy, wound and bone healing.
     

  • Assistive devices including but not limited to exercise balls, thera-bands, lacrosse balls, all for the purpose of preventing, correcting and alleviating a physical disability.

When I found Structural Regenesis, I was in terrible pain from Trigeminal Neuralgia and TMJ. I got relief from the very first session.

Dr. Nancy is highly skilled in numerous modalities, and applies these techniques in unique, thoughtful and intuitive ways. It’s refreshing to feel my body was heard and responded to in this very healing way. I felt completely safe. Highly recommend!

I was seeing a chiropractor before Dr. Phillips and the difference in treatment is night and day. Went from what was a cookie cutter treatment plan with minimal results to, now with Dr. Phillips, major relief after two treatments. She is very knowledgeable and will take the time to explain exactly what is going on. Highly recommend!

I’ve found Dr. Phillips very helpful with her acuity watching me walk and perform my strenuous daily activities. She was then able to communicate clearly and bring awareness for shifting some of my painful movement patterns. What a profound relief to find a professional, compassionate and gifted Doc!!
