*Chiropractic does not treat any condition, yet addresses structural shift in the spine that breaks down normal function, leading to secondary conditions/symptoms*
We look forward to meeting you and allowing you and your family to experience the Excel Chiropractic difference.
Why Excel is Different!
Excel Chiropractic is an office that focuses on Structural Correction of the spine.
The majority of chiropractors focus on goals such as reducing pain and increasing range of motion. These are good goals however they may be temporary at best. It also falls under the category of symptom management.
Imagine that your spine is a house’s foundation and your ceilings have been cracking and leaking for a few months. Would you rather continue to patch the leak up and wait for the water to come through and cause more destruction- or look at your body’s foundation to see if the underlying problem lies there?
Instead of achieving true correction of the problem -approaching problems this way never leads to TRUE correction and uses chiropractic as a natural and sometimes expensive aspirin. You would have to repair the problem again, and again.
What are My Treatment Options?
There are numerous ways to go about treating symptoms. Medical doctors and other types of doctors will focus many times on relieving pain or dulling a symptom in order to help a patient, and they do this well.
Many times prescription pain medicines are given and physical therapy can be prescribed to work on numerous problems including decreasing spasm and increasing mobility. Shots may be given to decrease inflammation and control pain. More invasive procedures are considered once these have been tried.
Each of those options has its own goal and is achieved well through those means.
At Excel Chiropractic the goal is simple, to restore structural integrity to the spine allowing for proper neurological communication within your nerve system which allows for higher function, human potential, and health and healing potential for you and your family.
What You Choose Is Up To You!
The approach at Excel Chiropractic is unique by using Structural Correction- we are looking for the actual underling cause of a person’s condition by checking for problems within the structure of the spine- your Foundation. This is different than patching problems up repetitively or as symptoms arise.
We understand that this type of chiropractic is not for everyone, but for people who are no longer wanting to constantly patch up problems and symptoms and would rather look for a true solution to their problems, this may be the right office for you and your family.
Once correction is achieved it is of supreme importance to teach you how to keep it that way, so you may continue to feel and see the benefits of chiropractic care for your health.
We will do this through recommendations made just for you, so that you are confident the problems will not return.
A deviation from the normal structure of the spine that may create pressure and chaos within your nerve system is called a Structural Shift. Structural Shifts within the upper spine (neck) create not only postural imbalances, but pressure within the nerve system which leads to Secondary Conditions.
Secondary conditions are what brings a person into the office seeking our expertise.
Once a structural shift is present and disrupting the spinal nerves and spinal cord, it can create many different secondary conditions or symptoms. The reason these are called secondary conditions is because they are a result of the primary condition- the Structural Shift.

Meet Dr. Liz Morin
Dr. Liz is very passionate about chiropractic and allowing the body to do what it is meant to do.
She lives in Key west with her partner, Steven and her two step children who are both about to be in high school. Her dog has high energy too and that helps keep the family active and having fun as much as possible.
She is originally from Northern Connecticut and came to Florida to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida. She attended undergraduate school in Westfield, MA where she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science. She has always loved warmth and year-round outdoor adventures and decided to make Florida her permanent home in 2011. She first moved to the Keys in late 2011, and has since tried other parts of Florida but has come back to make Key West her permanent home since 2015.
Dr. Liz enjoys reading, researching, weight lifting, running, fishing, diving, public speaking and education, and exploring new places. She loves animals and her fur-son Siggi. She is very happy to be in the Key West area where she can teach people and their families about health and its major connection to the spine and nerve system that most people are not aware of or addressing.
Dr. Liz’s Chiropractic Story:
Dr. Liz was introduced to chiropractic care when she was at her lowest point health-wise. As a young person she was plagued with chronic allergies and sinus infections. Being in contact with her grandparents’ cats would send Liz to the hospital and put on breathing treatments. This was devastating for Liz because she loves animals so much. She often had asthma attacks and had to be put on many medications. In college, her sinus problems came to a head and fear kicked in as her appetite disappeared, she was missing class due to excruciating “migraine-like” headaches, and she had no energy or zest for life. She was tired of being told it was another sinus infection and being put on more antibiotics that were destroying her immune system.
At a college career fair she met a local chiropractor and the rest is history. Through a chiropractic examination and x-rays, the cause of Dr. Liz’s health problems was found in her cervical spine-she had numerous chronic subluxations that kept her from being able to function and heal at 100% capacity. Chiropractic changed her life that year, helped her get off numerous prescribed and over the counter drugs, and inspired her to change her undergraduate focus to include Pre Medicine so she could enter Chiropractic school.
