DR. JESSICA NEIKIRK D.C.
Dr. Jessica is a graduate from the University of New Mexico where she received her Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. She later attended Parker University in Dallas, Texas to obtain her Masters in Functional Nutrition and her Doctorate of Chiropractic. While attending Parker University she spent her time studying rehabilitative therapy, functional movement screening, and myofascial release.
Dr. Jessica approaches chiropractic by looking at the body as a whole. She sees the importance of not only addressing the joints within the body, but also the muscles and tissues surrounding those joints. In addition to adjustments and soft tissue work, she wants you to be in control of your own health. This is why I believe it is essential to educate and provide corrective exercises to reduce the risk of re-injury.
Dr. Jessica is happy to explore a different part of the United States and likes being close to the mountains and beaches of the Carolinas. In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her goldendoodle, Ellie Mae. They like to go hiking and try different coffee spots around the city and surrounding area.
DR. JOHN BARTEMUS D.C., CFMP, BCIM, AFNI, DACBN(c)
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease"
- Thomas Edison
Dr. John Bartemus is a Chiropractic Physician who strives to meet the standard for health care that Thomas Edison set over a century ago. Now more than ever, our society needs holistic doctors who are devoted to finding the unique cause of each individual person's issues and correcting it in a natural, drug-free way. Time and research have shown that more drugs do not equal more health. Our nation is suffering from a burden of chronic disease that is not the result of a deficiency of pharmaceuticals. It is the result of a lack of knowledge as to what our bodies require to be healthy. Our society is built on a magic bullet paradigm, this will never lead to health. Disease did not happen overnight, neither will health.
If you are looking for an objective, evidence-based, holistic integrative health doctor to help you determine the cause of your dysfunction(s) and remove them, Dr. John Bartemus is here to help you.
