Dr. Rebecca Brown - Chiropractor
Dr. Brown's practice specializes in total body health and well being, starting with the proper function of all joints in the body, especially the dozens of joints in the spinal column. Malfunctions in these joints can alter the nervous system signals, distorting vital communication between the brain and the body. Dr. Brown says, "Seeing the magical transformations in people's health when these interferences are removed keeps me inspired and uplifted every day."
Dr. Brown consistently helps people with cases that others believed were hopeless. She is widely regarded for her ability to diagnose and treat the root cause of a problem, rather than just masking its symptoms.
Following an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Wesleyan University, Dr. Brown graduated Magna Cum Laude from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1990, and has been practicing in Yarmouth ever since. Her passions outside the office include playing classical piano and exploring Maine's spectacular coastline and landscapes by bicycling, kayaking, hiking, running, snowshoeing, or skiing. She and her husband live in Freeport and enjoy an active lifestyle and socializing with friends.

A graduate of Penn State University, Dr. Siu obtained his D.C. degree from the fountainhead of chiropractic, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

Dr. Andrew Wawra - Chiropractor
In addition to a well-rounded family practice, Dr. Wawra has additional expertise from post-graduate study in functional neurology, kinesiology, and rehabilitation.
Dr. Wawra works with patients of all ages to retrain poor strength, balance, and movement patterns. These patterns are often to blame for our chronic pain, re-injury, and poor performance in both sports as well as work. Common injuries treated include shoulder, low back, knee, and neck.
After performing a thorough examination Dr. Wawra puts together a structured plan to re-train, re-balance, and re-strengthen. Many patients have found after working with Dr. Wawra that they can break through their performance plateau and take their performance to the next level. For runners this training results often in taking a minute or two off their mile times. For workers the investment allows them to perform more work in less time with little or no pain.
Dr. Wawra is a native of Minnesota and graduated from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, with an engineering degree in 1999. He received his doctorate in chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2008. In his spare time, Dr. Wawra likes to do activities with his family including horseback riding, running, lifting weights, and kite-boarding.
Dr. Andrew deBethune - Chiropractor
An athlete himself, Dr. Andrew deBethune specializes in the assessment and treatment of athletic injuries and performance enhancement. After completing his undergraduate degree in sports medicine, he went on to complete his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Logan University. Dr. deBethune's unique approach integrates the best of traditional chiropractic and myofascial work with functional movement, screening and correction. He focuses on addressing the complete kinetic chain from spine to extremities optimizing its ability to perform and recover naturally.
Dr deBethune believes what makes you more athletic, makes you less prone to injury and pain. He engages his patients with care plans that are both active and goal oriented based on the patient's needs. This can be anything from navigating stairs pain free, picking up grandchildren, and reaching personal bests on the field as well as in the gym. Dr. deBethune excels in evaluating and treating tendonopathies, myofascial pain, joint and spine pain, repetitive overuse injuries and impingement syndromes. As an overhead athlete himself, he specializes in the evaluation and treatment of shoulder pain and pathology.
Dr. deBethune grew up on a small organic farm in Central Maine. He attended MCI in Pittsfield, Maine, where he pursued his passion for baseball and met his future wife, Audra. It is at this time when Andrew sustained injuries to his shoulder. Through the rehabilitation process, he found a mentor in the healing arts that would inspire him to do the same for others. He went on to play baseball at the University of Southern Maine and continues to stay active with lifting, running and intramural sports. Andrew currently lives in South Portland with his wife Audra and their Australian Shepherd, Coral. Together, they love exploring the beaches, rivers and hikes of Maine.
