When several MRIs and doctor's appointments led to Katie Summers's diagnosis of osteochondritis in her right ankle, she was understandably concerned—running was her life. So instead of surgery, she gave acupuncture a shot. It took only one session for Katie to find relief from her pain, and it had such an impact that she decided to pursue exercise science, clinical nutrition, and, of course, acupuncture as a career path. Now in the comfort of Pathways Center for Health & Wellness, Katie can ease deeply rooted pain with a personalized acupuncture session.
At The Fix Rehab and Wellness, Doctors of Chiropractic Fayaz Ather and J. Tate Medlock work to restore clients' health, whether they are recovering from auto accidents, sports injuries, or chronic pain. Before beginning treatment, the chiropractors conduct comprehensive neurological, orthopedic, and advanced movement screenings to find the cause of pain. Then, they set to work on a plan of action, which might include chiropractic adjustments, movement-based ART massages, Kinesio Tape applications, acupuncture, or another of their many available treatments.
Chiropractors Dr. Brendan Lee and Dr. Eric Soule have been in business for about 17 years, but despite the large number of clients they’ve amassed over that time, it’s very rare that a client has to wait more than a few minutes to see them. That’s because their two offices have a no-wait policy, and staff aim to usher patients from the lobby into large, private treatment rooms as soon as they arrive.
During appointments, the doctors consult with patients about their health history, then analyze chronic pains caused by injuries, accidents, or medical conditions. Drawing upon a wealth of chiropractic knowledge, doctors will then decide on one of several treatment options and make adjustments to the skeleton or recommend massage therapy that can remove tensions and toxins from soft tissues. In addition, they also practice acupuncture to treat the nervous system, which controls the patient’s ability to walk, run, and hopscotch, among over things.
Deborah Arneson, M.S. Nutrition Specialist, utilizes her degree in Food Science and Biochemistry at The Nutrition Advantage, providing personalized nutrition consultations. The process starts with saliva, hair, and blood testing, which she uses to assess her patients' metabolisms and vitamin levels. Next, through seminars or one-on-one consultations, she doles out nutrition tips and recipes tailored to specific issues: a lack of energy, safe supplement use, and even meals for dogs. She complements her nutrition services with Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional Indian healing philosophy that involves internal cleansing for parts of body from the sinuses to the intestines to the dorsal fin.
