Dr. Dr. Monica Toso recently joined our practice in December 2020. She grew up in Lawton, Michigan and received her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Nutrition from Western Michigan University.
She went on to earn her doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. During her years at WMU she became heavily involved with the Parkinson’s “Delay the Disease” exercise program at Bronson Athletic Club which led to a full-time internship in the Group Exercise and Personal Training departments. She was able to work with clients of all ages, skill levels, and starting points. She also worked as a Certified Personal Trainer for two years and completed several half marathons. Throughout her education Dr. Toso learned the importance of cross-training as well as the benefits of proper body biomechanics and weightlifting form.
She believes that in order to move well, we must move often. As a student at Palmer College, she interned in the Rehabilitation Department on campus where she shadowed and learned about many different types of soft tissue therapies. Recently she received certification in Level 1 Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). Currently, she is working on becoming certified in McKenzie Diagnosis & Therapy (MDT) and advancing her Personal Training certification through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA-CSCS).
