Dr. Health Alvidrez, DC
Dr. Heath Alvidrez, with a caring and compassionate personality and a passion to help people, decided at an early age to pursue a career in health care. While attending New Mexico Military Institute, and later the University of New Mexico, Dr. Heath had the opportunity to learn firsthand from local Chiropractors what the true benefits of Chiropractic care was and how Chiropractic could help all people live healthier, happier lives! Chiropractic is a conservative alternative to the mainstream medical model. Using no drugs or surgery but rather taking a natural approach to health, through Chiropractic adjustments to the spine and extremities, a person can experience an altered state of health and wellness. With encouragement from friends and family, Dr. Heath left the University of New Mexico to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa. Since receiving his Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree in 2004, Dr. Alvidrez spent the last seven years in Arizona actively involved in helping many people to live healthier, happier lives through the benefits of Chiropractic care. He has recently relocated his family back to New Mexico to be an asset in the Albuquerque community. In his free time Dr. Heath enjoys spending time with family and friends and loves to revel in all the natural wonders that the great state of New Mexico has to offer!
Dr. Norman Toy, DC
My name is Dr. Norman Toy and I have been a licensed practicing chiropractor in the state of New Mexico since 1987 and held licensure in Colorado for several years as well. I have practiced in the communities of Farmington, Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Espanola and am happy to be on staff at The Joint since December of 2013.
I have a wealth of practice experience and I enjoy delivering chiropractic care which may include forceful, low force and non-force techniques, myofascial and trigger point soft tissue release as well as instruction in proper stretching, home traction. My personal bedside manner is laid back, compassionate, thorough and my byword is Loving Kindness. I enjoy a healthy sense of humor to cushion the stresses and demands of life and to energize my interactions with my patients and to help them shed the stresses of the day while they are on my table. My style of practice ranges from non-force , low-force to to more firm manipulation techniques depending on the requirements of my patients.
I have really enjoyed The Joint and the wellness concept which is front and center there. It is refreshing to be in a practice that welcomes walk-ins and makes Wellness through consistent chiropractic care affordable. My other passions are skiing, hiking with my year-old puppy Bodhi, playing in numerous local musical groups , sound design ,audio recording and post production for theatrical, video film and music productions.
