Dr. Mumma started seeing a chiropractor when she was 16 for low back pain. The changes she saw after chiropractic treatment were dramatic. She went from standing on the sidelines of her team’s track meets one year, unable to run due to pain, to breaking a school record in the 300m hurdles the following year. As an athlete, this was a huge success and very encouraging for Dr. Mumma, but she also noticed other benefits after seeing her chiropractor: she stopped getting migraines, she starting sleeping through the night, and she noticed she wasn’t getting sick as often. It wasn’t long before Dr. Mumma knew that being a chiropractor was exactly what she wanted to do.
Dr. Mumma received her BA from Kent State University in Kent, OH, and her Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA, where she was named the Clinical Excellence Award winner for her graduating class. In addition to the academic requirements of the DC program, Dr. Mumma has also completed over 600 continuing education credit hours in areas such as rehabilitation, developmental kinesiology, pediatrics, pregnancy, nutrition, pain management, sports injuries, TMJ disorder treatment, disc pain, and neurology. She has taken courses through various manual therapy venues including the Motion Palpation Institute, Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, the McKenzie Institute, and the Prague School of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine. Through her studies, Dr. Mumma has learned from some of the brightest minds in today’s world of chiropractic and other manual therapies.
