Dr. Apatiga received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree after four years of study at Life University, the world's largest chiropractic college in the world.
She has completed over 100 hours of training in the Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific (KCUCS) technique, which focuses on removing the greatest neurological interference in the top of the spine to permit optimal functioning of the nervous system.
During her chiropractic education, she traveled three times to El Salvador on spinal mission trips to serve in areas with no access to chiropractic care. She also assisted in one of the largest controlled studies in chiropractic history with over 300 patient-participants.
The study examined correlations between chiropractic care and blood pressure. She has published research on upper cervical care and how it can help patients with fibromyalgia.
Dr. Apatiga feels privileged to have the opportunity to care for people from all walks of life. Her personal mission is to provide patients the excellent quality care that she would provide her own family, and to educate her community in how to cultivate good health in order to live a life of optimal potential through proper spinal alignment.
Dr. Apatiga and Dr. Dragoo and their two dogs, Pinky and Frida, are excited to be living in Florida and look forward to serving the East Hillsborough area!
