Dr. Trisha Yamamoto is a licensed chiropractor in the state of Virginia. She has practiced in Seattle, WA and Las Vegas, NV prior to settling in the Northern Virginia area in October 2016.
Dr. Trisha graduated with her Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Science from the University of Hawaii. She then furthered her education at Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA where she graduated with academic honors. Dr. Trisha has also studied over 180 hours in the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association program and is Webster Certified in the care of pregnant women.
While in Seattle, Dr. Trisha used an upper cervical technique, focusing on the top two bones of the neck to rid the body of subluxation. This gentle wellness model was applied to all ages, from children to older adults, allowing them to function at an optimal level without hearing any “popping” noise.
Working in Las Vegas was a significant change for Dr. Trisha. She focused on patients that were injured in motor vehicle collisions only. Due to the nature of the injuries, full spine adjusting, extensive therapeutic modalities and exercise were involved with the treatment of each patient. Dr. Trisha was the primary care physician for each of these legal cases. She had to know when and where to refer the patient if needed, keep in contact with each attorney, and keep track of everything that was provided to each individual patient.
Throughout her career, Dr. Trisha has learned a variety of adjusting techniques and models to serve patients exact needs. She has experienced the true healing power of chiropractic and has dedicated her work to helping others live life to the fullest.
