Dr. Lee Hazen, a Cox Certified practitioner and his wife Cheri, a Functional Nutritional Lifestyle practitioner share how they use a wholistic approach to healing by sharing a recent patient story.

Lee Hazen, D.C.

Dr. Hazen graduated Cum Laude from Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles in 1989. After a short post-ceptorship in Burbank, Ca, he was invited to become a resident in Dr. James Cox's clinic. From 1989 until 1998 he was co-director and resident in Ft. Wayne Indiana with Dr. Cox. While there, he attended and completed a 400 hour post-graduate Chiropractic Orthopedics training sponsored by National University of Health Sciences. Dr. Hazen has been serving the Murrieta-Temecula area for 15 years. 

As a Cox Technique instructor for the past 25 years, he has taught many chiropractors across the country the use of the specialized decompression table, diagnosis and care of spinal disease. Currently, he is on the post-graduate faculty of National University of Health Sciences.  

Lee Hazen D.C. and TCIM is committed to helping you regain and then maintain your quality of life, devoid of spine and extremity pain. Dr. Hazen offers specific protocols for spinal pain relief that are well-researched, well-documented, repeatedly-published and clinically-effective: Cox Technic Flexion-Distraction and Decompression Adjusting Manipulation.  The protocols were started 48 years ago by Dr. James M. Cox in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Cox Technic protocols have evolved as clinical application demands and research studies dictate. We are proud to offer the most cutting-edge, 21st century, non-surgical decompressive spinal pain relief.

 

Cheri Hazen, RN, ICHC, FNLP, LE

RN (Registered Nurse)

ICHC (International Cert. Health Coach)

FNLP (Functional Nutrition Lifestyle Practitioner)    

LE (Lifestyle Educator)

Cheri has dedicated her life to serving others and working with people on making true transformational changes in their lives. As a dedicated founder of TCIM, her unique approach to healing and her calming influence are appreciated by everyone that gets the privilege to work with her.

Cheri’s formal training is in Nursing. She graduated from BYU in 1984 and started her career by working on a very busy surgical floor preparing patients for surgery. Throughout her career, she has spent time working at a number of different hospitals in California and Indiana. She has helped countless patients ranging from those faced with cancer to helping mothers deliver babies. Cheri has also graduated from massage therapy school and most recently, she has worked with the love of her life, her husband Dr. Lee Hazen at Chiropractic Works, in Murrieta CA as his medical assistant.

She received her degree as a certified Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.  She is excited that her degree and unique life experiences will give her the ability to empower others and help to restore their health and vitality.

Cheri’s unique approach to healing comes from her own first-hand experience with suffering from a life-altering chronic condition.  Cheri’s journey through intense pain and chronic fatigue forced her to make permanent lifestyle changes, practice coping skills like deep breathing and meditation, and discover the power that proper nutrition has in reversing the disease process.  Now that she is healthy, she has rededicated her life to sharing her story and helping others faced with similar challenges.

Healing is possible…and Cheri is the living proof that her methods work. Cheri makes healing fun, exciting, and breaks everything down into small, obtainable steps. She will never overwhelm a patient with too much information or too much radical change all at once. She understands that this is all a process and she hopes to be viewed as a health partner helping her patients through it all!

Cheri works with patients on the following:

Health Coaching

Stress Management

Diet and Exercise Plans

Lifestyle Changes

Breathing Exercises and Techniques

Encouragement and Reinforcement

Nutritional Consulting

Spine specialist, Dr. Ed Barry shares a patient success story using Cox Technic.  Then he explains how he used the principles of flexion distraction to create a new home product for lower back pain called the Lift.

Dr. Ed Barry

As a board-certified chiropractic orthopedist and certified laser pain management physician, Dr. Ed Barry has spent the past 38 years helping patients get back to all the things they used to do. Over that time, Dr. Barry utilized traditional chiropractic techniques as well as laser therapy to treat a variety of conditions including arthritis, sciatica, spinal stenosis, hip pain, back and neck pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

​Many years ago, while Dr. Barry was exercising in the gym, he was drawn to a curious apparatus that was specifically designed for toning the abdominal muscles.  What made this piece of equipment so interesting was in the design and movement – a bench was fitted with a pivot bearing in the mid-point of the table so the user could alter the plane of movement in the abdomen as you contracted upward, creating resistance to both the anterior and oblique muscles in the abdomen.

​That got him thinking about the possibility of creating a device that could combine the two movements of flexion and traction for the lower back. And that’s when the seed for Lift was planted, and with those years of development, refinement, and engineering, Dr. Barry is now proud to introduce Lift to patients all over the world.

The Cox 8 Table made by Haven Medical is essential to the certified Cox Technic doctor.  It is a combination of Dr. James Cox's vision and the engineering genius of Mr. Don Wisner and his team at Haven Medical.  Mr. Wisner discusses the continuing evolution of the Cox Table and it's application in treatment spine pain and documentation of improving spine function.

About Don Wisner, the President of Haven Medical:

Growing up in Flint, Michigan in the 50’s and 60’s meant there was one thing ingrained in our culture: Cars!

This was the Golden Era of the U.S. Auto Industry and Flint was was a shining gem the crown jewel of Detroit’s auto manufacturing dominance. For the families who lived and worked here, cars were part of our DNA.

Haven’s founder, Don Wisner, grew up in Auto Mecca surrounded by people who loved to get their hands dirty building things, working on things and fixing things; mostly (you guessed it) cars… parts for cars… or tools, equipment and gadgets to work on cars.

Since an early age, Don was afflicted with "Creative A.D.H.D.," the product of a curious mind, an active imagination and a short attention span. His dad trained him not to read instruction or assembly manuals, but to figure out how things went together and worked for himself.  (To this day, if Don gets lost he won’t stop to ask directions let alone use his GPS, and he thinks “moderation” – especially when it comes to building stuff to last -- is for wimps).

While most of the boys would run to the ball field or soda shop after school, Don would race home to his Pop’s workshop where he learned first hand how to repair anything that broke, or build anything the family needed but couldn’t afford to go out and buy. That’s how it was done back then.

By the time Don graduated high school he could rebuild an engine in his sleep, but the passion to invent and build things from scratch had him in its grip, so he went on to earn a degree in Engineering from the prestigious Michigan Tech, aka the “MIT of The Midwest.”

After graduating from Michigan Tech, Don quickly became a rising star in General Motors’ Buick and Cadillac Luxury Divisions where he invented ABTS (All Belt To Seat) Technology, a revolutionary new safety system which forever changed the way seat belts function, move and are installed in certain luxury vehicles. ABTS was first used in the Buick Park Avenue and continues to be a standard safety feature to this day.

Spine specialist, Dr. Shawn Nelson shares a story of a woman who had traumatic spine injuries that left her leg and the last four toes of her foot numb for 10 years.  He describes how he was able to help this patient return to a higher quality of life.

Dr. Shawn Nelson

My journey to becoming a Chiropractor began as a patient in my early teens.  I was being treated for some debilitating migraine headaches that would take my vision from me.  I began to get adjustments and these went away. Continued treatment then kept them away.  When the time came to make some career choices in high school; I chose Chiropractor, FBI agent, and stuntman (The Fall Guy was my favorite TV show and the impetus for this choice).  Due to my natural aptitude in science, my experiences with my own issues, and my overwhelming desire to be able to help in any situation I could; I made my choice. 

​I was educated my entire life inside the State of Iowa. First attending and graduating from Waldorf College with an AA in pre-med. I continued on at the University of Northern Iowa and then the Palmer College of Undergraduate Studies earning my BS in General Science. I finished my education graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa March of 2002.  I have practiced in Michigan continuously since moving here in April of 2002.

My wife and I have 2 boys and a girl which keeps us very active.  We have been living in nearby Grosse Pointe Woods for 8 years and stay very active with the local schools and churches.  My work ethic was shaped by growing up on our family farm outside my hometown of 500 people.  My parents worked full time jobs and I played 5 sports in high school, so we farmed at night when everyone else had gone in for the night.  If something broke we were up as long as we needed to be to get ready for the next night. 

​I have always been around athletics. After high school I was a 2 sport athlete in college on scholarship for both football and wrestling. I continued to receive Chiropractic care through these years specifically after severely spraining my left knee at the end of my freshman years.  Once those ended I changed my focus to rugby.  I was on scholarship for it through my chiropractic college.  My playing career ended in 2012.  I played in 2 countries, countless states, and for 6 teams (including a cameo for the Navy).  I have coached both the men and women of Detroit.  For the last 7 years I have stayed active with refereeing. I have been taking care of athletes nearly 20 years starting in our rehab department in college, treating the whole rugby team in college for a year, and then being the on field trainer and chiropractor for all of the teams I played on and coached for 17 years here in Detroit.

Spine specialist, Dr. Jasmine Hornberger and her patient share her story of recovery following a second back surgery.

About Dr. Jasmine Hornberger

I have been in private practice at Inspired Health in Grand Haven, MI for just over eight years. I was inspired to move here in 2012 to be close to Lake Michigan and infuse the grounded recommendations of being outside as part of my holistic approach to health and healing. I love nature and enjoy hiking, sailing, paddle boarding and the beach.

I have over 300 post-doctoral hours in functional nutrition and focus on balancing body chemistry using Standard Process whole food supplements. I believe in supporting the internal cellular environment to aid in the recovery of injuries and imbalances. I became Cox Flexion/Distraction certified in the fall of 2015 and have been implementing the gentle traction-force technique in my treatment plans ranging from minor over-use injuries to post-surgical pain syndromes and am trained to handle complex, multi-faceted clinical presentations.

As a lover of movement medicine, I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training in the summer of 2017 and began teaching twice a week. Yoga and cathartic movement have so many benefits for mind/body health and through rhythmic flow I believe heavy emotions that continue to block growth can finally be released and self-love is then the ultimate gift we can give ourselves. Currently I offer an online subscription of classes I developed called Primal Pulse. Each class varies slightly but includes a warm-up, yoga flow, breath work with aromatherapy and ends with a short meditation to crystal singing bowls.

I love being of service to my community and am passionate about helping people move away from pain-based, reactionary care and focus on long-term prevention and holistic natural living. I believe everyone has the capability to remove interference in their life, restoring mind/body harmony and reclaiming a full and vibrant life.

​I look forward to helping you discover your Everyday Alignment,

​Dr. Jasmine

Dr. Steven Baroody shares an interesting story about a woman who receives lots of treatment on her shoulder for shoulder pain, but her shoulder is not the problem.

About Dr. Baroody

Dr. Steven Baroody is a 2004 graduate of New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY. A martial artist for more than thirty years, he was introduced to chiropractic when he injured his lower back being thrown. The quick recovery that followed, and the opportunity to help others convinced him that chiropractic was the career for him.

Halfway through his education, however, Dr. Baroody sustained a shoulder injury serious enough to require surgery. After the surgery, however, active release therapy (ART) accelerated his rehabilitation and enabled him to return to both chiropractic and the high level of martial arts he had enjoyed before the injury.

Having been through the pain of a chronic injury, and the long search for someone who could help him, Dr. Baroody became very well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder injuries, and pursued full certification in ART to allow him to provide the same quality of care that he had received.

On this episode, I along with two patients share their stories of back and leg pain after having previous back surgeries.

ABOUT DR. JOHNSON

Hi…I’m Dr. Michael Johnson. I’m a practicing physician specializing in treating spinal related problems. My professional quest for over 25 years has been to find the most effective treatments for the most painful and debilitating spine conditions.

We live, exist, and function in a gravitational environment. This takes a toll on our spine, our posture, and thus our overall health. Conditions such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis, disc herniation, spinal stenosis, previous spine surgery, and pregnancy can cause back pain, leg pain, neck pain, arm pain, and a host of other spinal related symptoms.

My goal is to connect you with a doctor who can help you.
