Dr. De Brine is a cancer survivor 15 years post-treatment for lymphoma. She brings this life experience with her into practice as she helps her patients who are going through their own cancer scares, battles, and survivorships. She understands how radiation and chemotherapy treatment can affect their musculoskeletal and psychological heath, as well as the physiological effects the treatments have on the body and adapts chiropractic treatment in order to achieve realistic goals. Dr. De Brine is very open to discussing her experiences with cancer and this has helped many of her patients, along with their family and friends, cope with this devastating illness.
Dr. De Brine vows to provide only the highest quality of chiropractic care for her patients and their families. She has been trained in a variety of chiropractic treatment techniques, and selects those that will best enable her patients to reach optimal health as quickly as possible. She will also work in conjunction with Primary Care Physicians and other doctors to ensure that patient care is handled with sensitivity and conscientiousness. Most importantly, she is not only committed to the treatment of symptoms, but also to the maintenance of the body's natural ability to heal itself and to patients’ overall health and wellness. To this end, we offer a variety of holistic health services.
Outside of the office, she enjoys listening to her son play live music whenever she has the opportunity. She enjoys oil painting, refurbishing her historic home, yoga, biking, hiking with her dogs, sewing with her daughter, and spending time on her boat on Canandaigua Lake.
