Spine specialist, Dr. Jasmine Hornberger and her patient share her story of recovery following a second back surgery.
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,
Graduated Cum Laude from
Palmer College of Chiropractic, 2011
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.
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.
