“Chiropractic is a wonderful profession of service. Lawlor Family Chiropractic is a place where people come to get well. Our job is to remove subluxation of the spine that interferes with the innate intelligence of the body. When the body has the ability to adapt, it will do so.

Chiropractic Eldridge IA Gigi Meet Team

Chiropractic Assistant

Gigi Adams-Seibel

Long story short, Dr. Josh Lawlor employed my daughter Hannah, and it so happened the clinic needed an assistant. Hannah told Dr. her mom could do it. I met with Dr. Josh one Saturday morning in 2008 and have with them ever since. As I was spending 3-4 days weekly assisting Dr. Josh Lawlor, I became increasingly conscious of our health and wellness.

I love seeing the victories and hearing the praises of the patients' experiences at Lawlor Family Chiropractic, as well as leading a life of good health.

When I am not assisting doctors and patients in the clinic, I delight in spending time with my family, reading, scrapbooking, and enjoying good company.
