Though it happened under unfortunate circumstances, Dr. Tara Urschel discovered chiropractic care at a very young age. At 12, Tara sought treatment due to injuries she received as a competitive figure skater. As she rebounded, Tara realized the benefits of chiropractic, and later, after teaching international athletes under the supervision of Olympic medalist Sergei Chetverukhin, she decided she wanted to help others achieve wellness in the same way. While training at New York Chiropractic College, she met her husband, Dr. Michael Urschel. Together, at Ashburn Medical Spa & Wellness Center, they help clients achieve optimal health through chiropractic care, neurological consultations, herbal medicine, and nutrition counseling.
