Chiropractor Melissa Eiben
Dr. Melissa Eiben, the owner and chiropractor at PHC utilizes a systematic approach to getting to the source of the problem. Her treatments consist of specific manual medicine and chiropractic manipulation. Dr. Eiben's approach to treatment is that she understands the body as a functional unit. She believes that finding one's true cause for dysfunction is similar to peeling back an onion. As the many layers are peeled away the source of the problem will be discovered. Dr. Eiben is able to use many forms of manipulation to fit all people’s needs. She understands that many people are fearful of the “cracking” noise that occurs with certain manipulations and she has the ability to use other avenues to meet the needs of all.
While attending Chiropractic school, Dr. Eiben had the opportunity to intern for a well-respected orthopedic group in Florida. There she learned the skills to treat pre and post-operative spinal patients. She has attended spinal conferences where orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and chiropractors discussed surgical patients and their various treatments. The knowledge that was gained from this experience is translated into Dr. Eiben's practice today.
Dr. Eiben traveled the world and treated hundreds of patients in impoverished countries, such as Vietnam and Dominican Republic. Through these travels, she gained knowledge that no textbook can teach, such as communicating with a patient and their family when there is a language barrier. This experience also gave Dr. Eiben the opportunity to have more of a global view on healing and an open mind to different philosophies and ideas when it comes to treating a patient.
Dr. Eiben is licensed in the state of Michigan and Florida and is board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. She received her Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida.
A PURE approach to achieving and sustaining better health and wellness.
The philosophy at PHC is to provide the highest quality care in a peaceful, stress free and healing environment. Each patient is an individual with individual needs and goals, the staff at PHC understand and emulate that through their practice. Pain and suffering can cause us to be fearful of certain treatments, here at PHC we work with you and your body’s limitations so your visit with us can truly be comfortable.
