Chiropractor Leah Meadows D.C.
For years I suffered with terrible headaches. It wasn’t until one of my friends suggested chiropractic, that I got any relief. I was oblivious to the benefits of chiropractic care.
A Life Changing Experience
I was at University, applying for Dental school and still suffering. My headaches interfered with my schoolwork and social life. One of my friends read about a chiropractor that could help with headaches and suggested I give it a try. Other doctors and pain medications didn’t help, so off to the chiropractor I went.
After just one visit with a chiropractor, I felt like I was walking out on pillows. I felt relief. My headaches were gone completely in a couple of weeks and I noticed the back pain due to scoliosis since childhood was improving.
It was within the first two weeks of my visits that I decided to change my career from dentistry to chiropractic. It was very important to me that I get the word out there and let people suffering from headaches and back pain know about the benefits of chiropractic care.
A Chiropractic Education
I moved to Portland, Oregon to attend Western States Chiropractic College. WSCC has been a leader in evidence-based chiropractic care, and has long encouraged an integrated approach to health. This is where I met my husband and partner in practice, Dr. Jeremy Meadows.
I’ve completed many post-graduate adjusting technique courses including CBP, and Torque Release (an instrument assisted technique). This gives me the ability to tailor my adjustment style to the patients specific, needs. Currently I am in training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association for a Diplomate in Pediatrics and I am fully certified in the Webster Technique.
A Positive Experience with Chiropractic
At Energize Chiropractic and Wellness we have a great team working to cater to you. We’ll make you feel comfortable and answer any questions you have. We want you to have a positive experience and forget about any past negative experiences you’ve had.
We’ll do a full exam and help you understand what your condition is. We’ll explain what we’re going to do before we do anything. If we determine we can’t help you, we won’t accept your case. We try to help you find out who can help.
Chiropractic Is Rewarding
Our goal is to help you get back to your normal activities and experience life again.
With chiropractic care, you can do the activities you used to – even if you though you never would again. I’ve had patients that have come in for their visits in a wheelchair and with our excellent chiropractic care they now leave walking.
It’s rewarding to see our patients get back to a healthy family life or get back to work without drugs or surgery.
Practicing What We Preach
When I'm not helping my patients with quality chiropractic care, I spend time with my husband and two young children, Maia and Lawson.
My husband and I preach a healthy lifestyle and focus on living a balanced life. We believe that health needs a holistic approach. Not only do I promote a holistic approach to healthcare to my patients, but I make a healthy diet, stress reduction, exercise and chiropractic care a part of my family’s lifestyle as well.
Health is all encompassing; it’s what we eat, how we take care of ourselves, how we exercise and it’s also determined by the lifestyle choices we make. My husband and are raising our children the same way. We skate every week and live a healthy balanced life together as a family.
Chiropractor Michelle Irwin D.C.
At the age of 11, as I was waiting on my mother’s treatments I observed how another patient of the treating chiropractor was improving from coming in using a wheelchair and after adjustments and treatments he was able to walk out the door.
A Positive Direction
My experience with chiropractic touched home as my mom underwent chiropractic and I saw how she improved. During my mother’s treatments, I observed a young man being treated for his degenerative Multiple Sclerosis. He began care in a wheelchair and after several weeks of treatment he was able to walk short distances and do basic tasks himself. In high school I began working to see that my childhood dream became a reality.
Pursuing Educational Excellence
Dr. Michelle holds a degree from Oklahoma State University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology. She continued her education by becoming a licensed massage therapist working in tandem at a chiropractic clinic as a Chiropractic Assistant and Massage therapist. In 2008, she began her journey at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, OR receiving her Doctor of Chiropractic Degree in 2011.
In Her Spare Time
Dr. Michelle truly enjoys the people she works with and seeing firsthand improvements that can be provided with the diversified techniques she performs. She loves working with patients of all ages but is especially connected to and passionate about helping children live their best, healthiest life.
Chiropractor Melissa Morris D.C.
I have been an active person for most of my life. Whether it is playing sports or participating in outdoor activities, I am always engaging in something physically challenging. During that time, I have seen a lot of individuals get seriously injured or start to experience chronic pain throughout their bodies. Many of them sought relief from dangerous operations or medication which did not sit right with me. I knew there had to be a better alternative.
Getting into Chiropractic
My passion for helping people utilizing holistic approaches is what led me to pursue the chiropractic field. I was amazed to learn about the bodies functionality and how it was able to heal itself with minor assistance. After learning about the benefits of chiropractic care, I knew I made the right choice and wanted to make sure to spread the news.
A Cherished Memory
One of my favorite chiropractic memories is getting to adjust both of my daughters. The adjustment took place almost immediately after they were born, and it was amazing to see how well they responded to it. Chiropractic care provides many benefits to children and helps improve their overall health as they grow.
Outside of The Office
