Meet Dr. Sarita Smalley
Dr. Sarita Smalley is a chiropractor licensed in Texas by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE). Dr. Smalley is certified in Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), and working towards her Pediatric Chiropractor Certification from the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP). At Texas Chiropractic Family Health and Wellness, her goal is to create a receptive, nurturing environment in which to provide chiropractic care to the community. Dr. Smalley’s guiding philosophy is movement. Your body loves you, love it back. The role of the spine is to support us in movement throughout our daily lives and to keep us climbing the mountains, promoting the strength to reach those personal records, and allowing your body to have the birth you dreamed of. The role of motion cannot be understated; when the joints have full range of motion; when the spine is well-aligned, the body has freedom to move the way it is intended and women experience greater comfort throughout pregnancy and people are able to return to their favorite activities pain free. Dr. Smalley’s goal is to help you achieve pain-free movement down the entire kinetic chain, which combined with spinal health, nutrition, and exercise, are the key to a healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Smalley earned her Bachelors of Science from Houston Baptist University in Houston, Texas, and her Doctorate in Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida.
