About Christina Lasich, MD

Christina Lasich, MD, author of High Heels to Hormones: A Woman's Guide to Spine Care, is a concerned physician who suffers from spine pain herself.

Dr. Lasich has practiced in the area of spine rehabilitation for more than 10 years and is an award-winning graduate from the University of California, Davis School of Medicine. Although she focuses on back, neck, and other musculoskeletal injuries, she also meets the rehabilitative needs of people with spinal cord injuries, strokes, traumatic brain injuries, muscular dystrophies, ALS, multiple sclerosis, amputations, and other painful conditions.

Prior to entering medical school, she worked as a firefighter for the California Department of Forestry. She loved the job and she found her husband. Loyal to her original dream of becoming a doctor, she hung her firefighting helmet in the closet forever in 1993. (Thankfully, she still has a great husband.)

Dr. Lasich currently has a private practice in Grass Valley, near Sacramento, CA. Her philosophy is simple: "Pain is your doorway to transformation." For more information, please visit and
