For Dr. Craig Mix—the licensed chiropractor behind Discover Chiropractic & Wellness Center—the key to good chiropractic care is simple: work closely with each patient to find a technique that is both comfortable and effective. He views the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership and works hard to earn his patients’ trust. In turn, he works toward individualizing care plans and minimizing wait times—he sees most patients within 10 minutes of arrival. Dr. Mix specializes in spinal adjustments—he’s even certified in gentle techniques ideal for pregnant women and anyone made out of snow—but he can also alleviate pain from headaches or help patients reach their weight loss goals.
At a young age, Dr. James E. McMinn accompanied his army father across the world—a journey that gained the attention of Birmingham Medical News. This early exposure to other cultures introduced Dr. McMinn to a panoply of cultures, but most importantly, it taught him to find common ground between his beliefs and those of others. Now, as an established Western-trained doctor with more than two decades of experience, Dr. McMinn has found a balance between healing patients with science-based treatments and holistic therapies. And it is back in his hometown of Birmingham that he provides these integrative medical.
Dr. McMinn leads a dedicated team, working from the belief that health issues, including fatigue, hair loss, and low libido, can be prevented. He’s even formulated foundations of wellness, which label "nutrition, hydration, exercise, and sleep" as the basic building blocks of healthy living. From that foundation, the staff—which includes a doctor of Chinese medicine, registered nurse, professional counselor, and medical assistants—aims to attack maladies at the root with a variety of treatments, such as acupuncture, hormone therapy, and FDA breast-cancer screenings with thermography.
For more cosmetic concerns, an onsite aesthetician wards off signs of aging with antioxidant-rich Glo Therapeutic and Environ products. She augments that with a slew of advanced treatments, such as skin-tightening Thermage sessions and exfoliating chemical peels, both of which leave complexions glowing brighter than the glitter waterfalls that dot Candy Land.
