Dr. Cynthia Boyd, D.C.
Dr. Cynthia Boyd is the owner and founder of Symmetry Spine & Wellness Center. Initiating positive, permanent change in the body without drugs or invasive surgery puts Dr. Cynthia Boyd, D.C. of Symmetry Spine & Wellness Center at the forefront of an advanced type of chiropractic knowledge and care known as Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP®). As one of the only CBP® practitioners in the East Bay, Dr. Boyd uses highly specialized techniques that put patients on a path to healing and recovery, proven far more effective than traditional chiropractic methods. Dr. Boyd says, “CBP® is to spinal care what orthodontics is to teeth—permanent change.”
Early in her education, Dr. Boyd was fortunate enough to witness the profound effects of CBP® in a small chiropractic office, where classic symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, migraine headaches, ear infections, asthma, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and TMJ problems were commonly alleviated. Bringing this knowledge into her own practice, Dr. Boyd is well on the way to developing Symmetry Spine & Wellness Center into The Community Center for Optimal Health and Healing. As spinal health becomes more widely acknowledged for directly affecting one’s overall health and vitality, the benefits of modern chiropractic are also becoming more widely recognized. In a natural extension of spinal healthcare, Dr. Boyd now addresses the five principles of wholistic health through her practice: Structural Chiropractic care, Health & Nervous System, Nutrition, Stress Relief and Sleep. She explains, “The amount of chemicals people are given as part of their health care regimen is appalling. I’m committed to helping people refocus on the body’s natural ability to heal, something that’s under-acknowledged in the current medical system.”
Dr. Boyd continues to broaden her knowledge with the most up-to-date research while pursuing the latest techniques related to a diversity of spinal issues. She attends advanced seminars on an ongoing basis and is an instructor in CBP® at Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA. With less than 5% of U.S. chiropractors certified in CBP®, she wanted to ensure it was taught correctly while giving back to the same institution where she received her doctorate in 2005. Being immersed in a stimulating, learning environment with the latest equipment and resources readily available to her also benefits her patients.
With a successful history of applying CBP® for everyone from children through all life stages, Dr. Boyd is always looking for newer, better ways to help her patients. She was honored for her work and contributions in CBP® with the prestigious Chiropractic BioPhysics® Chiropractor of the Year Award, 2009, at The 31st Annual CBP® Convention. Now for the second time, Symmetry Chiropractic was recognized in Alameda Magazine’s “Best of Alameda” issue, September/October, 2009. Her commitment to ongoing education in her field keeps her on the leading edge of chiropractic care in the Bay Area.
Originally from Boonton, NJ, Dr. Boyd has called the city of Alameda home for several years. Prior to her post-graduate studies at Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Boyd was a 2001 graduate of Bloomfield College, from which she holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a focus on Pre-Chiropractic studies.
Symmetry Spine & Wellness Center offers a unique and comfortable healing environment, and is known for advanced chiropractic services. Dr. Boyd helps the body with spinal adjustments, exercise, specialized techniques, nutritional counseling and patient education to help patients not only get out of pain, but structurally healthy so their spine is as near normal as possible. Dr. Boyd has always been passionate about finding ways to enrich the everyday living experience and motivate her surrounding community towards living healthier lives, people she sees not just as patients, but at her neighbors.

In serving as a coach for Symmetry’s physician monitored weight loss program, Ideal Protein®, Dr. Navid has demonstrated her diverse ability to walk into any role in the office and perform with both excellence and ease. She looks forward to the completion of Symmetry’s upcoming expansion and hopes to be able to continue on with Dr. Boyd on her mission to provide the ultimate community resource center for optimal health and healing.
