What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness, LLC offers affordable chiropractic care for patients of all ages. Dr. Kelley Mulhern has been in the healthcare industry for over 11 years-as a chiropractic physician in private practice, mentor, consultant, professional speaker, educator and published author. Since graduating with her doctoral degree, Dr. Mulhern has been licensed in five states and has attended over five hundred hours of post-graduate continuing education. She's proficient in several adjusting techniques, including instrument and low-force techniques. As a family wellness chiropractor, Dr. Mulhern works with her patients on all aspects of their health, and educates them so they can make better choices to improve their lives and the lives of their families. In addition, we're currently the only facility in the Tampa Bay/St. Pete area with a cutting-edge HIVAMAT 200 machine. This machine uses the natural electrostatic field of your body to create a pumping action to improve circulation in the skin and underlying lymphatic system. This treatment may relieve symptoms associated with plantar fasciitis, sciatica, shin splints, lymphedema, diabetic neuropathy, tendonitis, bursitis, and other inflammatory conditions.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Dr. Mulhern and her husband, Michael, don't believe people should be sick or suffer because they can't afford to be healthy. That belief inspired us to create a business model where people can get the care they need at a price they can afford.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing the spark of understanding the moment people grasp how their bodies work. I love watching as patients reach their health goals. But what I love most is when a patient comes in who has seen several other healthcare providers to no avail, and we help them get results.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Too many to pick just one! "Infertile" patients becoming pregnant; neurological symptoms resolving, pain relief, restored function, improved health... Having a patient INSIST on driving more than two hours each way to be adjusted by me, and not considering a referral to a closer chiropractor.
