Dr. Monica Adkins, Chiropractic Physician
Born on Long Island, New York, Monica Adkins earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at The University of New York, Plattsburgh and a duel program between Ithaca College and Cornell University respectively. When she graduated with her Master’s in Health Education she took a wonderful opportunity to work at Columbia University as a Certified Athletic Trainer. It was there that she realized that she had to do more to help people get healthy and to reach their own human potential. She decided to become a chiropractor. Monica attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia, from 1995-1999 and graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Upon graduating she and her husband moved to Missoula, Montana and opened A Simple Practice—Good Health Through Chiropractic. It was a fun and happening healing place with patients ranging from professional snowboarders, famous authors, mothers, fathers, children, and even new born babies. She also became recognized for successfully treating many children with special needs. It was exciting and very rewarding.
In Missoula, Dr. Adkins served patients in town at her modern office and traveled to serve neighboring communities as well. While raising 2 young children of her own, she became well versed and effective in treating babies with any number of health issues due to birth and birth trauma. Monica held weekly classes for her patients as well as other groups—with education oriented to general health, nutrition, spinal care and workforce health. Monica’s office received a best practices award for being bicycle and pedestrian friendly.
Dr. Adkins and her family moved to Eugene in June, 2007. Since then, she has been very busy raising her children. And now that her twins are in school, she has reestablished her practice as Adkins Wellness Chiropractic & Nutrition Haus, just a short bike ride from downtown Eugene.
To stay healthy Dr. Monica works hard at eating right and gets lots of physical exercise. Her family sold their car after arriving in Eugene and has bicycled exclusively for the past 5 years.
