Dr. Lindsey Calvert-Downey’s first brush with chiropractic medicine was at the age of 14.

Now at the helm of her own clinic, she helps alleviate her clients’ pain and treats fertility issues using chiropractic adjustments, spinal-decompression treatments, and acupuncture sessions. Dr. Calvert-Downey also holds a certificate in animal chiropractic, with a special interest in realigning the spines of dogs, horses, and stuffed animals that have been hugged too tightly.

The team at CML Health Centers believes that a person's overall health can sometimes be seen in how they treat their car. They say that when patients come to them, "they often wait until the point of crisis, as opposed to maintaining good health?True healthcare [is like] taking your car in every 3,000 miles to have the oil and tires checked, rather than waiting till the whole thing breaks down." The team at CML Health Centers helps patients avoid these crisis points with expert preventative care.
Through straight-forward, thorough assessments the provider will evaluate patients' posture, function and symptoms to pinpoint problem areas. This collection of data also serves as an objective measure so that along the continuum of care, both provider and patient can measure improvement. The team prides itself on listening to patients and putting their comfort as a top priority. In addition to massage, active rehabilitation and chiropractic sessions that work to relieve pain, aches, and other conditions, CML offers nutritional supplements and lifestyle workshops.

Dr. Ellensohn is also trained in acupuncture, which he uses to help relieve aches and increase energy flow by strategically inserting fine needles into the body.
