DR. AMANDA, CHIROPRACTOR, COLUMBIA MO
Dr. Amanda Alcamo was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. Growing up, she was always very active in sports and the arts and noticed that having regular chiropractic adjustments allowed her to perform at higher levels and avoid injuries.
When she was in her adolescent years she developed Scoliosis, which forced her to be put in a back brace 18+ hours/day for years. Unsuccessful due to the large curvature of her spine, she underwent her first Spine Surgery which was 22 hours at the age of 16 in which they placed 2 Harrington Rods and over 40 screws in her spine. After a long recovery and intense therapy, she went onto college and played basketball at the collegiate level as well as participated in theater throughout school. She obtained a double Bachelor’s in Science in Biology and Broadcast Media Communications from Missouri Baptist University. While attending college, due to severe complications of her spine, she went on to having two additional spine surgeries which accumulated to 36 hours combined surgery time, and ended with the surgeons removing the hardware from her spine completely.
After two more long recoveries, she began her chiropractic training at Logan University, College of Chiropractic. Understanding pain herself, Dr. Amanda felt God had led her to a wonderful profession in which she could help multiple people get off medications and live a drug free/pain free life the way God intended.

Once Leah and Dr. Taylor were married, and she had seen her amazing improvements under principled chiropractic care, she decided to step away from her engineering career in order to open an office with him in Columbia, Missouri where she will be the Office Manager. Her new passion for helping others find health and healing through principled chiropractic care has given her the the faith to pursue this mission!
