Erin Sherman

Chiropractic Assistant

Erin is new to Colorado, but not to chiropractic care or working as a chiropractic assistant. She has been getting adjustments since she was a teenager when her grandmother suggested her parents take her for her migraines, which she was having a few days a week. After just a few visits they were much less frequent until they altogether stopped. Erin also noticed her allergies had gone away and her appetite increased. She was lucky enough to have been raised eating and living a healthy, active lifestyle. Her family camped and hiked for vacations and grew a small garden for summer food. Now, she is fortunate to be able to pass along the tradition of essential health to her two children.

Erin Enjoys sharing her knowledge, experience and passion about chiropractic care with everyone she comes in contact with, especially families, as she has seen what a benefit it is to the developing body and mind of babies and children. Her two children both received their first adjustments on the way home from the hospital. With good, clean food and regular corrective adjustments they have stayed healthy and antibiotic free, well into childhood, and not as young adults; not one ear infection growing up!
