Dr. Jessie Rickerson is Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician and a Registered Yoga Teacher. A firm believer in active care, Dr. Jessie prescribes patients specific yoga poses to compliment their adjustments. She also uses yoga poses as an assessment tool in identifying biomechanical and postural pitfalls in patients.
In addition to adjustments and prescribing yoga poses, Dr. Jessie enjoys treating soft tissue especially of the shoulders and feet. She sought after becoming a Chiropractic Sports Physician because of her interest in treating the extremities and because of her work with adolescent athletes.
Dr. Jessie is the girls junior varsity swim coach at Corona Del Mar High School, which has afforded her the privilege of coaching, educating, and treating adolescent athletes. She implemented a yoga routine into the swim program at CDM 4 years ago, which has been a success in preventing injury and teaching body awareness.
Treating adolescent athletes is Dr. Jessie’s passion because she can relate to them and feels that they are receptive to adapting healthy lifestyle choices that will help them throughout their lives.
She graduated from the University of Virginia with a bachelor’s in Biology and attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL. She resides in Newport Beach where she loves to surf and swim.
