Meet the Doctors
Dr. Julie Schifferli, D.C.
When I was 16 years old I was in a life changing car accident. It was one of those accidents where afterwards you realize that you could have died. After I was stitched back together, I was left with chronic neck pain and headaches. My family was happy that I was alive and I disregarded my daily pain as something that I could live with and it just became “normal”. After seven years of pain killers to manage my day to day life, a friend finally strongly suggested that I see his chiropractor. I didn’t want to go because my family “didn’t believe in chiropractors”. But, at this point in my life I felt like I was out of options. That chiropractor not only took away my pain, he corrected my spine so that I haven’t had pain since. I’m so grateful that I saw a chiropractor who understood corrective care.
I have been a chiropractor now for 20 years and have been serving the Prescott Valley area for 16 years. Because of my experience, I’m passionate about helping people achieve their health goals. And I love helping people of all ages. I love biking, camping, hiking and exploring this beautiful part of the country we live in.
