Indianapolis’s Best Chiropractor!
The Fix RX is a unique chiropractic and massage facility that is motivated to help you move and live more comfortably. We wanted to take this opportunity to allow our patients (current and future) to get to know more about us and our practice.
How did you and Emilee decide to build the Fix RX and run it in the unique way you do?
Our decision to start The Fix RX was driven by a plan that is much larger than us. Emilee and I are blessed with a complimentary partnership and our different skill sets actually led to doors opening and a calling that we continue to step into. Each day we are personally motivated to be the best version of ourselves. The FIX RX challenges us in that while affording us the opportunity to pursue our joint passion of pouring positively into others. We truly believe that it is not our decision but our calling and we get up each day with a thankful smile in that we get to go do this together!
What do you see missing in the Healthcare System as it is today?
Excellence being ‘the standard’, common sense being a driver for patient treatment plans, and the reality check for all involved that quick fixes do not last. Accountability, responsibility, and willingness to do things right the first time is what delivers long term sustainable results. The challenge today is that the healthcare system, the doctor, and the patient are not perfectly aligned and as a result, trial and error has become more the norm than aligning everyone’s interest from the beginning for a more predictable success.
The way it works today
- The Dr is struggling to get paid and being told they only have so much time/bandwidth for patients.
- The patient is so maxed out with the speed of life that they seldom have the time to focus on taking care of themselves (enter medication and self medication).
- The insurers (big business) has been given the financial keys which drive the result in the entire scenario and they are intentionally difficult to understand & a challenge to get anything done with(patient or provider)
RESULT= ALL IN NEED OF ALIGNMENT FOR SUCCESS
How do you think The Fix RX can help remedy that problem?
Our biggest challenge is the question of : How are we getting paid to provide the level of care that we deliver to our patients. We don’t have all the answers and really all we can impact is what happens at The Fix RX. Our methodology is to deal with each patient scenario in an individual and focused manner. No two patients are the same and from the minute patients walk in the door at The Fix RX our goal is to make them feel at home, let them know that we are here to understand specifically what is going on with them, and then to partner with them in a medical treatment plan that we benchmark for their success. Our practice is holistic and as such we believe pain originates from the entire person- Emotional impacts Mental which impacts Physical and it all touches us Spiritually. Listening to patients and meeting them where they are has afforded us the ability to deliver a patient experience where the results can speak for themselves. One patient at a time…….
We will be going into much more depth about why you are a chiropractor at a later date, so let’s discuss something a little bit different instead–
Where are you originally from?
I was born in Logansport, Indiana. We moved around the first few years of my life to Plainfield and Eerie, Pennsylvania until we landed back in Indiana. My parents moved to Speedway when I was 5, so I grew up on the west side of Indianapolis.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love being home with our family. It’s not always easy to have three kids of very different ages and my husband and I all together so I cherish those times. Jeff and I have built a foundation on God so putting our faith into everything we do is important. I also enjoy crossfit, moving my body is so crucial to me, to what I can give to the world and to what I can give back to my body. I also really look forward to cooking at the end of my day, especially big meals when everyone is home.
What do you hope to accomplish when you see a patient?
Well mostly I long for people to not have pain. It’s become this normal part of our society, of us as a whole. I hate when people blame their age for pain. If I can get someone moving better, if I can show them what the most functional posture is and how they can benefit from changing simple things then I feel I have done my job. I get an immense joy when someone tells me they are better. Healthcare is hopefully changing and I’d like to see so much more growth in the field of biomechanics and pain but people have to take on some responsibility for what they can do as well to create a movement-oriented, pain-free lifestyle.
Why do you do massage therapy?
I love my job because I love seeing people feel better. When they can walk better and move better, it makes me happy. I truly believe massage therapy is my calling, and I am so lucky to have found it!
We know you are originally from the south. What is your favorite thing about Indiana and how long have you been here?
I have been here for 14 years. I love the distinct four seasons and how friendly the people are! I am from Florida and we only have Christmas and summer.
What is the most rewarding part of working with the patients at the Fix?
I love my patients and the relationships I build with them. They become like family! Our practice goes beyond knowing people from a medical perspective- we get to know people personally.
I like that we attract patients who are willing to buckle down and do what they need to in order to get better.
When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of my soul, as my soul is the mirror of the infinite God!
O my friend — but it is too much for my strength — I sink under the weight of the splendour of these visions! A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.
I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
