Today we’d like to introduce you to Allyson Pierce.
Allyson, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am a prenatal + pediatric chiropractor, Navy spouse and mama to the sweetest baby boy, Oliver. My interest in chiropractic stemmed from family tradition and my upbringing. I’m a 5th generation chiropractor — my family has been a part of the profession for over 100 years!
I feel so lucky to have grown up in a household that was passionate about preventative + holistic health care. I make sure to share this passion with my patients daily. Growing up, my dad practiced chiropractic while my mom was a labor + delivery nurse, childbirth educator and lactation consultant. I combined the interests I gained from both of my parents to focus on providing chiropractic care to moms-to-be and kids of all ages.
When we moved to San Diego in 2016, I was on a mission to provide affordable chiropractic care to growing military families like my own. My family knows first hand how difficult this military lifestyle can be, so I wanted to do what I could to make life a little easier for them. I began by seeing patients from our home with Oliver by my side. But, our practice has quickly grown to need more space!
Now, I see patients at Nature’s Whisper Yoga studio in University Heights.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Unfortunately, it hasn’t always been a smooth road. Being a military spouse is not easy on your career. I’ve missed out on several opportunities due to this lifestyle and that was really hard for me to swallow. However, I’m not one to give up. These hardships allowed me to adapt, grow and achieve my dreams through a little creativity. I love where I am at in my family life and career right now. I am exactly where I need to be.
We’d love to hear more about your business
I am a prenatal + pediatric chiropractor. I focus on providing affordable care to military + low-income families in San Diego.
There are so many benefits to chiropractic care during pregnancy. The uterus has attachments to your lower spine and pelvis, so chiropractic care can keep you and baby comfortable throughout the pregnancy. Regular adjustments can balance and prepare your pelvis for childbirth.
I also love taking care of babies and children — it can be so beneficial for those tough developmental stages! I take care of a lot of babies with latching difficulties, colic, reflux, etc. I find it so rewarding to help these families that otherwise may not have access to holistic care like this.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I’ve seen so many different types of success stories. They all have a common theme: connection. The connection that occurs within families after a stressor disappears is by far the best part of my job.
Whether that’s a baby who no longer cries for five hours a night or a pregnant mama who no longer has back pain and can now comfortably play with her toddler, my proudest moments are seeing these families reconnect.
