Inspired by a close family member who recovered from a debilitating injury through chiropractic care, Doctor of Chiropractic Amir Rashidian knew he’d found his career path. Now, at The Mid Atlantic Clinic of Chiropractic, it’s his life's goal to bring about that kind of relief from pain to the members of his community so they may return to all the activities they hold dear. To do that, he uses a holistic approach that includes a combination of postural screenings, nutritional and lifestyle coaching, and manual treatments such as spinal adjustments and massage. He also specializes in drugless treatments for migraine and headache relief. Through physiotherapy, he enhances healing effects and alleviates discomfort with ultrasound, as well as electrical muscle stimulation and cryotherapy. With this well-rounded approach to treatment, he not only treats the cause of the pain, but can prevent its recurrence.
While working at a pharmaceutical company as an immunochemistry scientist, Dr. Autumn Frandsen had an epiphany: for all the good it did, the focus on medicine and palliative, symptom-focused care ignored the body's ability to heal itself. She went back to school to study holistic and naturopathic medicine, and learned how to treat the underlying causes of a range of maladies. Today, she treats problems and conditions including migraines, chronic pain, and arthritis at Velise Total Health. She addresses them with services as craniosacral therapy, nutritional counseling, and heavy metal detoxification that removes heavy metals from the body.
