Dr. Terre York has 40 years of Chiropractic and related health care experience. She spent her early career in a health-related field as a massage therapist to celebrity clientele. She quickly became interested to learn how to help people improve the overall quality of their health by studying and gaining accreditation as a Medical Assistant to general medical practitioners.
In 1978, Dr York enrolled at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles and completed her Doctorate in June, 1982. She opened her first office that year, York Chiropractic Center in Hendersonville, North Carolina, and grew that practice successfully.
Licensed to practice in three states, Dr. York came to the Coachella Valley in 1995 and continued her professional Chiropractic work managing her own practice in Palm Desert. She joined The Spine and Sport Clinic team in 2007.
Dr. York's specialty focuses on helping active seniors and 'Winter" season residents ensure best health and staying 'tuned'to achieve full enjoyment of their favorite sport and recreational specialties.
In her 27 years of private practice, Dr. York has studied adjunctive healing arts, including nutritional supplementation, microscopic cell analysis, essential oils and Bach remedies, energy medicine, and the use of therapeutic low level laser. She has served as the sport trainer for the USTA National League Championship tennis matches held in the Coachella Valley for the past 11 years.
"Dr. Terre", as she is known by many patients, is recognized for her personal and caring approach to her professional work. She takes time to understand each person's health concerns, problem and goals. Every treatment protocol is specific to each patient, and she ensures timely follow-up to check that the treatment plan is working beneficially and effectively.
Dr. York also encourages her patients to help themselves by providing them specific, detailed information and guidance regarding exercise and personal care. If patient problems are beyond the scope of chiropractic, she willingly assists them to arrange alternative help, such as further diagnostic testing and referral to appropriate specialists if necessary.
