Dr. Schwarzbeck is also certified in Acupuncture and loves to use this technique alongside chiropractic care to obtain optimal health for patients under her care.
Dr. Schwarzbeck is passionate about helping her patients to get out of pain and live a more active lifestyle. She believes it is important to treat patients holistically, by addressing all aspects of their health. In her free time Dr. Schwarzbeck enjoys exercising, reading, and listening to podcasts.
