Dr. Lorraine Ginter received her Bachelor of Science in biology from University of California, East Bay in 1996. She attended the Holistic Health Institute in San Francisco and graduated with a holistic health educator and practitioner certificate in 1979, and graduated from University of Western States (UWS) in 1989 with a doctor of chiropractic degree. Dr. Ginter is board eligible for a diplomate in internal medicine. She also has additional training in Graston technique, kinseiotaping, enzyme therapy and primary care practice. She has been engaged in clinical teaching at UWS since 1991. Prior to becoming a licensed chiropractic physician, Dr. Ginter was a massage practitioner for 10 years in a chiropractic office, which motivated her to get more schooling so she could increase her skill set and provide care for more patients.
Dr. Ginter has a particular interest in treating the whole person, which means evaluating and addressing the patient’s primary concern, as well as taking a holistic approach by evaluating for and minimizing risk factors for illness and encouraging optimal health through nutritional and lifestyle support. She treats patients of all ages who present with most any condition, but specializes in chronic pain and palliative care.
Dr. Ginter maintains balance in her own life by engaging in activities with family and friends. She particularly enjoys interests that bring her closer to nature, which include gardening, bird watching and creating fiber art pieces through quilting and applique (check out her wool labyrinths in the UWS library)! She also maintains an active meditation and walking practice.
