At Chiropractic Performance Center, Inc. I am always working to stay at the forefront of the healthcare industry. I work hard to offer the highest quality in conservative treatment options in Providence, RI. As the healthcare industry changes, insurance co-pays are only getting higher and it has become an increased priority for individuals to be proactive with their healthhealthcare. Just as important as seeking treatment early on when a painful problem begins, it is important to seek regular treatment to improve the presence of movement dysfunctions that lead to injury and pain overtime.
The CPC, Inc. approach is simple; I assess your movement with a whole body perspective, apply appropriate therapies to improve your joint and muscle flexibility and can support your strengthening efforts with physician guided personal training.


How will you know what to treat if I am not in pain?
The functional movement assessment and treatment approach practiced at CPC, Inc allows me to identify and treat current movement dysfunctions that lead to injury over time. I use a system of evaluation called the SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Screen) and FMS (Functional Movement Screen) to assess the quality of your movement in all areas of your body. These movement assessments are specific and reproducible, they are used to guide therapy over time even without the presence of pain.
The CPC, Inc. mantra is Prepare & Train, I feel strongly that preventative healthcare is the best approach to support your active life & training.


Methodologies include:
  • Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA)
  • Functional Movement Systems (FMS)
  • Titleist Performance Institute (TPI)
  • Active Release Technique (ART)
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Treatments
  • Soft tissue/ massage/ myofascial techniques
Treatment goals:
  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase coordination
  • Improve stability
  • Increase strength
  • Decrease threat perception
I cater to a wide range of individuals. Some patients are either currently injured and looking to remedy painful areas. Others are looking to clean up movement patterns with a goal to ultimately maximize performance.
Common injuries and ailments I typically deal with include but are not limited to:
  • Low back pain
  • Hip impingement
  • Shoulder impingement
  • Sciatica
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Neck pain
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
  • Golfers’ elbow (medial epicondylitis)
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Plantar fascitis
  • Ankle sprain
  • Arthritis
If you are looking to simply increase flexibility in areas that are stiff, gain your stability back, or improve your balance and posture, this office provides a one-stop-shop. Whether you are struggling with chronic pain or arthritis, or simply looking to incorporate a deeper level to your training, I am here to help you.

Pain is the last to develop from repetitve, faulty movement.








When I first came to see Dr McNally, I was in bad shape. After running the Boston Marathon for a second time, I had developed a chronic popping in my left knee. It was so bad, that I was worried I'd never be able to run long distances ever again. On top of that, I had developed chronic pain in my lower back that was keeping me awake for nights on end. 

From the moment I walked through the door, Dr McNally's energy, optimism and can-do spirit started my healing process. In just my first session, she diagnosed that I had a spondylolisthesis in my lower spine, I had a weak psoas muscle in my core, and that I was over-training the wrong muscles and under-training the muscles I needed for running.

She gave me a few simple exercises to do daily and talked me through what exercises were over-developing my quadriceps and hip flexers which were causing my knee popping. It wasn't easy adapting my gym routine, but I stuck to it (supported by her positivity and energy). Within two to three weeks, my knee popping subsided, and a few weeks after that, my back pain was gone for good.

I still do the exercises she gave me every day. They are so simple that I sometimes think that they couldn't have possibly brought this change in my life, but I have the evidence to prove it. I've dropped 90 seconds from my mile pace for my long runs, I walk taller, feel better, sleep like a baby, and this April, I'll be taking on the Boston Marathon again. This time, with Dr McNally's help, I'll definitely feel like a winner!
