She was introduced to the benefits of chiropractic care during her childhood when her mother started suffering from extremely severe and debilitating migraine headaches. She was in and out of medical doctor’s offices and trying different medications for years before one of them suggested she visit a chiropractor. Her chiropractor was able to manage the symptoms quickly, so she could get back to having a real life. Eventually, the migraines were gone for good. After seeing her mother on and off so many different medications, Dr. Gill was committed to staying healthy and teaching others how stay healthy through the body’s ability to function and heal itself.
