Meet our Spine & Patient Care Specialists…

  • Dr.
    Neil Fico
    Managing Physician

    “We try to be proactive in health care – not reactive to crisis situations. Health is something you have to gain and maintain. We love to educate people about wellness as a way of life. Our goal at Strand Spine Institute is to help you restore your well-being. Our unique approach to care is what sets us apart. It is truly amazing to see each one of our patients live a pain-free lifestyle again.”

  • Kristy Whitehead
    Lifestyle Therapist

    “As a Lifestyle Therapist I partner with practitioners to give their clients the best care possible helping them gain the tools that they need to achieve their health goals through nutritional plans, proper nutrients, stress and weight management while assisting them with adopting healthy lifestyles to promote optimal health.”

  • Lisa S
    Patient Care Specialist

    'As a patient care specialist, I work closely with our chiropractors in assisting and educating our patients to a better way of life. At Strand Spine Institute we are passionate about maximizing our clients' health and wellness and improving every quality of life.'

  • Diane
    Massage Therapist

    Massage works with the body's regenerative capacity to promote self-healing, release locked-up energy, correct imbalances and provide the enjoyment of deep relaxation and sense of well-being. I work closely with the doctor to understand individual needs and assist with reduction of inflammatory response and lymphatic drainage to promote health and healing. 

  • Darin
    Laser Technician

    As a certified laser technician my goal is to provide the best treatment possible. Partnering with our physician and reviewing individual needs is most important in order for you to achieve the best results. I take great pride in my work at Strand Spine Institute and look forward to meeting you and assisting you on your road to recovery.
