Dr. Abbey Hernandez, D.C., believes in the body's capability to heal itself through the power of chiropractic adjustment. That philosophy is embodied in Prana Health Chiropractic, located in Huntington Beach, CA.
A graduate of the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, Dr. Abbey performs specific spinal adjustments to a diverse population, specializing in prenatal, post-natal, and pediatric patients. She emphasizes that health is multi-faceted and needs to be addressed in several different areas such as regular chiropractic care, proper nutrition, functional movement, ample rest, and positive mental attitude.
Dr. Abbey works with patients of all ages, but working with mothers and their young children is truly her passion.
"I love focusing on children and mothers' needs because I believe every person deserves a chance to live fully connected lives," Dr. Abbey said. "Providing healing adjustments on the spine is vital to the well-being of the nervous system, especially for mothers who are expecting. Chiropractic adjustments also allow a child's developing brain to speak directly to the rest of the body without interference, which is important for healthy development."
Prana Health Chiropractic's philosophy is utilizing the body's innate vital force and helping patients to harness that power to heal their body of toxins, trauma, and the daily stresses of life.
Dr. Abbey's wellness approach involves complete one-on-one attention.
"My goal is to educate others on various methods to stay healthy and live a full life through the healing power of chiropractic," Dr. Abbey states. "I want people to feel empowered and to be able to take charge of their health so they can live fully enriched lives. That is the cornerstone of Prana Health: to enlighten, empower, and enrich patients."
Outside working with her clients, Dr. Abbey enjoys practicing yoga, staying active through boot camp style workouts, reading, cooking, and spending time with her family. She is a graduate of Ocean View High School and attended Golden West College and St. Mary's College in Moraga, CA before earning her doctorate of chiropractic from Southern California University of Health Sciences.
