Dr. Cunningham’s interest in the health field started early on after sustaining numerous injuries in competitive gymnastics. Despite her injuries, she competed in gymnastics for 10 years, afterward taking up marathon running. After graduating with her bachelor’s, Dr. Cunningham put her passion for running and desire to understand human physiology to the test, working as personal trainer/fitness coach to make a difference in people's lives.
Understanding the body’s mechanics and joint mobilization helped her not to just become a better runner, but a better doctor. She went on to compete in five marathons, five half marathons, and multiple 5Ks per year, which has helped understand the importance of treatment and underlying biomechanics of running. Dr. Cunningham is a firm believer of regular chiropractic care because it gives high-performance athletes an extra edge so they can perform at optimal level and prevent injury. She also emphasizes maintaining a healthy lifestyle and the importance of exercise and nutrition.
