Dr. Marilyn Britton

Dr. Marilyn Britton specializes in helping people recover from injuries and find permanent relief from chronic pain. One of her greatest satisfactions is working with a client who formerly believed they will always be in pain or physically limited. She finds it professionally and personally fulfilling to see people get better, and get on with their lives. She quickly analyzes their situation, gets to the root cause of their symptoms and through Active Release Techniques or gentle Chiropractic adjustments, gets them moving comfortably again. >>((.))

A former dancer and dance teacher, Dr. Britton understands proper body alignment and functional movement and knows how important being physically fit is to overall health and well-being. She is dedicated to helping both athletes and non-athletes enjoy the activities that make them happy. 

Helping Patients for More Than Twenty-Five Years

A Chiropractor for more than twenty-five years, Dr. Britton graduated Magna Cum Laude from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward in 1990.  She assists in teaching Active Release Techniques to chiropractors, physical therapists and athletic trainers. Always wanting to stay on top of current therapy modalities, she regularly attends health and wellness workshops and conferences.

Dr. Britton also holds a Masters Degree in Psychology from the University of San Francisco. Having a psychology background helps her better understand the psychological component of injury and pain and to guide her patients through their recovery and rehabilitation.
