Dr. Lacey Mendez, D.C.
I grew up in the East Bay, where I enjoyed swimming competitively and teaching swim lessons for over 10 years. I then went on to attend UC Santa Cruz graduating with a BA History of Art and Visual Culture. I truly enjoyed the opportunity to expand my communication skills and knowledge of the world, while living right by the beach! However, the long hours of sitting and studying left my neck and lower back aching. After graduating college, I was left searching for a career path where I could create positive change. I went online, and spent hours researching jobs that help people. During my search I discovered chiropractic, set up an appointment to tour the closest college, and received my first adjustment that day. The results were life changing, I began experiencing less pain, headaches, and fatigue. Furthermore, I received a thorough exam, treatment, and follow up care instructions which left me feeling in control of my health. I knew what I had to do next. I am proud to say I graduated as a Chiropractor from Palmer West College. I look forward to the opportunity to provide the community with a non-invasive and holistic approach to their overall wellness. I utilize Diversified technique, Soft tissue manipulation, and Thompson. I enjoy dancing, concerts, walking my dog, and cooking in my free time.

Prenatal and Pediatric Care: Prenatal chiropractic care can help soon-to-be Moms have a more comfortable pregnancy and help her prepare her body for the difficulties of childbirth. Also, we can employ a gentle technique to address common misalignments found in infants, toddlers, and young children.
Personal Injury (Auto Accident): Treating patients after they have experienced a physical trauma requires a particular kind of care. Time is of the essence as soft tissue damage in and around your spine, if allowed to heal out of line, can cause chronic ongoing issues. Having the less obvious of spinal injuries assessed soon after an accident is vital. Acute soft tissue injuries often get overlooked without the attention of a chiropractor. We have been uniquely trained to look for these subtle and potentially dangerous misalignments.
Corrective or Reconstructive Care: Many spinal misalignments do not arise from a traumatic injury or accidents. They tend to happen over time! Throughout our lives, certain habits – such as posture, heavy lifting, and even workouts can cause recurring issues within your spine therefore your entire nervous system. We use corrective care to help bring back the natural curvatures and alignment of your spine and return order to your nervous system. With a combination of adjustments, exercises, and massage therapy patients often experience improvements in sleep quality, energy, mood, and more!
Geriatric (Elderly) Care: We have the belief that every human should live a healthy life up to their last day on this planet! There are so many people in their 80’s and 90’s out there running marathons, still mowing their grass every week, or playing tag with their great-grandkids! It is no coincidence that their spines are in great shape! However, as the stresses of chronic (long-term) spinal misalignments compound over time – having gone unchecked by a chiropractor for decades – some of us aren’t able to experience life as we know we should! We can find that activities as simple as picking up a toddler or walking to the mailbox can be a difficult task. Through gentle, low-force techniques used to realign the spine, we improve the quality of life of these individuals so they can “thrive” through their golden years rather than simply “survive!”
