Ever wonder why you feel so terrible after a relatively minor car accident? Any kind of trauma can create changes in your body that make studying or taking tests more challenging than before the accident. Come explore how your body experiences trauma and what you can do to minimize the impacts of car accidents, skateboarding falls and other athletic injuries. Also discover the surprisingly easy ways you can prevent injuries and accidents.
Wiseman is an internationally board certified chiropractor, specializing in pediatrics and family care. Her undergraduate and graduate studies in environmental science prepared her to take on the human ecosystem, and she is fascinated by the miracle of the human body. She has practiced overseas and volunteered with Physicians for Human Rights. Using a variety of techniques and approaches to health, she strives to empower her patients to maximize their health and performance, whether academic or athletic.
Upon her return to the U.S., she created a new innovative practice. Dr. Carmel House Calls was founded in January 2016 to provide holistic care to patients from the comfort and convenience of their homes and offices. Her favorite part about this model of practice is that she can eliminate the stress associated with traffic and waiting rooms by going to her patients.
Wiseman is an active leader in her community, organizing festivals and other educational events to provide resources and information for people to optimize their health. She lives with her husband in Fairfax, Virginia, and loves to grow her own food in her backyard. She also enjoys teaching water aerobics and is a certified Water in Motion instructor and teaches biweekly at Sport & Health in McLean, Virginia.
