Dr. Laura McMorrow received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara. She later became certified as a massage therapist, and worked in a chiropractic office for two years. During this time, she decided to pursue a chiropractic career. She attended Los Angeles College of Chiropractic for a four year intensive program. The course work for chiropractic includes anatomy, biochemistry, microbiology, physical and laboratory diagnostics, radiology, physiology, pathology, nutrition, and public health. There are also detailed classes of the clinical sciences with a good deal of "hands on" experience. In fact, chiropractic education is similar to medical education, except that medical practitioners emphasize surgery and pharmacology while Doctors of Chiropractic focus on diagnosis of musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders and treatment through clinically and scientifically established conservative procedures. Consequently, Doctors of Chiropractic have the expertise to diagnose, treat, and/or manage many different health problems including:
| Neck Pain
|| Carpal Tunnel
| Back Pain
|| Hip Pain
| Sports Injuries
|| Foot Pain
| Shoulder Pain
|| Knee Pain
| Sprains & Strains
|| Auto Accidents
In 2006, Dr. McMorrow became certified as a Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (C.C.S.P.). She is the only one in the area with this certification, which gives her more extensive knowledge of sports injuries, especially soft tissue and joint injuries to the extremities. This also gave her training on being a Team Doctor.
Dr. McMorrow is also certified in Graston Techique which utilizes patented stainless steel tools to help break up adhesions and scar tissue. This helps to relieve pain and improve mobility from chronic pain or old injuries. It also works well on new injuries by helping to prevent adhesions and scar tissue.
Dr. McMorrow also uses a Rapid Release tool to break up adhesions, scar tissue, and trigger points (knots), and loosen up tight muscles. This tool works by vibrating deeply into the tissues.

Member of Yuba City Noon Kiwanis for 9 years, serving youth in the community
