Dr. Amanda Lutzow

Dr. Amanda Lutzow graduated with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Rehabilitation Services from East Carolina University. While attending East Carolina University, she was a four-year division one volleyball player. Shortly after graduation, she began seeing a Chiropractor for low back and knee pain. Her aches and pains quickly resolved, but what was even more powerful was the fact that her headache frequency decreased, her immune system was functioning the best it ever had, and she was no longer experiencing her usual ADHD symptomatology. Feeling called to serve others through this principle, she enrolled into Chiropractic College to serve the masses and spread the truth about Chiropractic to the world. She completed her Chiropractic education at Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina earning her a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. Dr. Amanda is certified by the North Carolina Board of Chiropractic Examiners. 


Dr. Amanda has completed countless seminars which have allowed her to gain extensive knowledge in Chiropractic Technique and Philosophy. She was also a member of the Spartanburg Toastmasters Club for two years, gaining experience in public speaking. Dr. Amanda is passionate about serving the world through Chiropractic and has traveled to Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Colombia to teach others about a properly functioning nervous system. Dr. Amanda’s passion is to educate the WORLD about the incredible power of the human body and its Innate wisdom to heal itself.
