Hi! I’m Dr. Taryn Mason,
Patients that have been around for a long time will have seen me running around the office in diapers, working behind the front desk as a Chiropractic Assistant and now serving our patients as a Chiropractor since 2014. I guess you could say I grew up in this office and am now living out my lifelong dream of being a chiropractor.
All throughout high school, college and graduate school I was an athlete. I always thought I would want to focus on athletes in my chiropractic career. Athletes put a lot of demands on their bodies and chiropractic care helps with optimal performance so it seemed like a good fit. As I was studying a lot of neurology in chiropractic college my focus began to pivot. The more I understood about brain development and how abnormal patterns established in a child’s brain and nervous system can affect them for the rest of their life I decided I wanted to focus on pediatrics. I have committed myself to learning the best ways to care for pregnant women and children. I have been a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association since 2017. I am a Webster Certified chiropractor which is a technique commonly used with pregnant women to ensure that their nervous system and pelvis are optimized allowing for the best pregnancy and birthing process. I am currently participating in pediatric research and working towards a certification from the ICPA. I am constantly in the pursuit of more knowledge in order to better serve our patients. I still enjoy taking care of athletes and grown ups of all shapes and sizes but kids are certainly my passion.
