Dr. Blanchard is the 4th chiropractor I'm seeing in the Bay Area for the past year.
Finally problem solved.
I've had chiropractor suggested that I've dislocated my ribs, that my low back is the problem and what not. the pain lingered and got worst with time. It felt as if no matter what I'm complaining about to the other chiropractors I get the same treatment, some ninja moves, or as you would call it adjustment...yes, I'll admit it feels good, but not for more than 20 minutes.
I came to Dr. Blanchard when I was 38 weeks pregnant and all I could think about is "how am I suppose to deal with labor when I cant even move?"

For almost 2 months I suffered extreme pain in my low back. Sophie was recommended to me by a great friend . I schedules an appointment immediately. It took Dr. Blanchard minutes to identify the actual source of the pain - which wasn't the low back FYI.
Dr. Blanchard had the right approach, equipment and knowledge to deal with my pregnancy, physically and mentally.

I highly recommend Dr. Blanchard to my family and friend.

I thoroughly researched chiropractors in Alameda coming from Manhattan and decided to try Dr. Sophie. It was one of the best medical decisions I have ever made.

I am a pilot and am forced to sleep on different bed and sometimes hard surface 60% of the time. My back was in extreme pain, including suffering from a tingling upper extremity. After a few months of treatments and exercises, my pain is almost entirely gone. The exercises she assigned were crucial to my recovery, and I wouldn't have figured them out without her guidance. The proof was clear when she showed me before and after MRI of my spine and neck from my first visit and last. My spine had a slight curve but is much straighter now, and the vertebrae in my neck are aligned much more correctly. I was actually shocked to see the improvement. Obviously I felt it, but to see it via x-rays was amazing. Quite simply, I haven't felt this good in years.

Dr. Blanchard loves what she does, and it is apparent in her unwavering enthusiasm for her patients and their recovery. Her sunny disposition and friendly office staff makes each visit a pleasure.

If you need a chiropractor in Alameda, you can't go wrong with Dr. Sophie. She is amazing, and receives my highest recommendation.

Thank you

My back got worse after her adjustment and I had to go to my MD to get pain killers

After the adjustment, I was very immobile for about 3 months.

I then went to another chiropractor but they didn't want to adjust my back because of some kind of damage from the adjustment I got.

I think she got distracted... She was talking with her friend most the time and I dont think she was very focused on my back issue. Not very professional.

Overall, it was a bad experience and my back actually got WORSE which obviously was not the purpose of the meeting and I won't go back again.

I've never before gone to a chiropractor. I've always been skeptical. However, I've had some serious pain in my lower back and...well...frankly...in my left rear-end.

So, I decided to make an appointment. And it was great.

Dr. Blanchard is fantastic. She was very thorough, very informative...and they work with triathletes, runners, cyclists, and Joe the Plumber.

My left glut and hamstring has kept me from being able to pedal forcefully on my bike. I walked in the door, filled out my paperwork, went into the room...and let the Active Release Technique begin!

I felt much better immediately after leaving the office.

I'll be going back many more times to continue workin' out the probs...good times!

So I know chiropractors tend to get a bad rap... but honestly, Dr. Blanchard knows about alternative medicine and health care in general! I've been seeing her for almost a year now and she has been helping me time and again. I was involved in a very bad accident and had chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain. (our vehicle turned upside down and I happened to be strapped by the sit belt hanging upside down. I am lucky didn't break my neck.) Needless to say, it was difficult for few month. I am use to work out all the time so it became frustrating to not be able to work fully or enjoy leisure. I had headaches which i never had. I was more irritable than my usual self.

Dr. Blanchard and staff to the rescue! Dr. Blanchard took the time to learn my medical history in detail and educated me on her philosophies but wasn't overbearing about them. She is an expert on nutrition and exercises. Her assistant, runs the billing part and she is extremely efficient and the friendliest woman you'll ever meet. Furthermore, she's a smart worker and will find a way to work with your insurance company so that your copay is as low as possible for your visits.

So note that I say 'Dr. Blanchard AND STAFF' to the rescue... my secret obsession with going to the chiropractor as often as possible is not only because of Dr. Blanchard and Felicia, but because of Jamie shutt, the acupuncturist and also the Licensed Massage Therapist that works with them. Now, I've had a lot of massages in my life - I admit, I am kind of obsessed with them. Joelle is AMAZING! She knows how to hit every tense muscle in my body and she uses just enough pressure so that my body just melts when I'm on her table!
They recently added to their team a Rolfer: Sasha Prescott, which I have not tried but met and seem to also know her stuff.

I try to stay proactive with my visits even when I'm not experiencing pain, because I feel that it's a treat to my body to get adjusted, realigned, rubbed down, etc...
My pain level is down to a 2 and I'm back to working out like I used to. In order to be healthy i feel that I need to continue to visit. By the way, they are conveniently located in Alameda. You're in good hands (literally) with the team at Alameda Marina Wellness Center!

I've been seeing Dr. Sophie for nearly 9 months now, and I honestly don't know how I ever lived without her. Before I started to see her, I would have a massage once every while, usually when someone bought me a gift certificate, and I would go to work out regularly (about 1x wk). From my prior massage experiences, it never occurred to me that I would WANT to go weekly! My trainer recommended her (there are a bunch of us who are all like this 'family' who use them both.). I went, and had never experienced anything like it. She is so much more than a nonsense crack and else...she gets into the muscles, she knows their names and how they are connected inside your body and she works stuff out that you never even knew that you had! Recently, my hip flexors have been messed up, giving me all sorts of problem w/ my lower back. She has me lie on my side and gets in there w/ her elbow. Don't get me wrong--it hurts like a B---! But I know it is good for me and I know she knows what he is doing, so I breathe deep and deal. She calls this technique ART

Last summer, she was out of town and my back was killing me, so I decided to use an old gift certificate I had to the Sports Club. Halfway through that massage, I literally wanted to get up off of the table and walk out. Seriously, once you try this Doc, you will realize that you have never had a real chiropractor before.

Oh, and I now see Dr. Sophie Blanchard once a week, every Sat morning...and my Trainer? I have seen him also regularly and our work out is much better! This gal is the real deal, and I encourage any one who's given her a negative review to check her out before you open your mouth....it just makes you look so stupid, because literally there is NO ONE who has ever gone to her that i know of (and i've sent at least 10 people) who has not raved.

Horrible! After a few visits, this office is lacking in more than a few areas. Office organization and customer service is non-existent. Appointments are dropped and and patients are left waiting in the waiting room up to an hour after a scheduled appointment, that's it, you're dropped. Come back again soon? I think not. And if you do get a table, you'll have to wait some more. Just a few seconds with her and out the door she goes. I could have put a warm pad and read a good book at home! Absolutely no personal attention. If you like being herded like cattle, go for it.
I received a bill almost 2 years after my last appointment which included one of those dropped appointments. Then, they have the nerve to write "last attempt" on the bill as if they had sent a bill in the first place!

Blanchard is not as good as a DC as she presents herself and certainly not worth it. My back still hurts but not as much as my headache.

Dr. Sophie started treating me as a worker's comp patient. Since then, she has become my primary physician. She is also treating my husband and teenage son for shoulder injuries. From our own personal experiences we can tell you she is top notch for the following reasons: attentive, great listener, caring and compassionate about overall wellness, results oriented, very knowledgeable and experienced, has a great personality and a high level of positive energy...and her office is open weekends for the working people. Staff is attentive, cordial and caring as well. What more could we ask for?
