Meet Dr. Felix and Dr. Maria
AKA: "The Hockey Doc" specializes in Spinal Biomechanical Corrections and Scoliosis, sports injuries, extremity injuries & taping. His background as a personal trainer and massage therapist before chiropractic school has lead him to work with Junior Hockey Teams since 2006. He has worked with St. Louis LIghtning, Illionois Frontenacs (3rd Place National Champions) and currently the Paul VI High School, Potomac Patriots and George Mason University Hockey Team.
Dr. Yesquen's combination of his true passion for spinal biomechanics AND sports is what makes sports performance his area of expertise. The Hockey Doc has taken classes in sports perfoamance at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. He is currenly working on completing his certification in Chiropractic BioPhysics(CBP). CBP has redefined Chiropractic and the treatment of scoliosis and all spinal misalignments.
"Being involved in the Hockey community has completely opened my eyes to all levels of sports and sports injuries. We need to be checking the kids who are currently sustaining the injuries and get them back to 100%. Also the ability to get adults of all ages posture fixed by looking deeper into the spinal structures that are starting to fail them due to these types of injuries earlier in life is critical. Patients of all ages can get permenant/long term relief from the type of treatments we offer"
Dr. Yesquen's ability to look at the body as one whole system and to show people that they do not have to live in pain and that Chriopractic is the solution is second to none.
Dr. Schafer's promary focus is to show that Chiropractic is for the whole fmaily. Dr. Schafer started seeing a chiropractor in high school after her dad was suffering from a low back disc problem. While in the office with her dad she saw that chiropractic could help with headaches too. She bacame a patient and discovered all of the other amazing benefits chiropracitc had to offer as well as getting rid of her all too regular migraines.
Dr. Schafer has completed several certification in various areas that deal with whole family health and wellness. Dr. Schafer's primary focus is in bloodwork analysis nutrtion. "Many patients just take a bunch of 'stuff' in terms of vitamins and supplements but never really know what it's doinf for their health. I like to actually look at the bloodwork to see if it's helping and from there get a picture of where their helath needs to go to become their best self. Combining that with structural analysis of the spine and posture and we can totally improve our patients lifestyles.The best part is retesting we want to know that what we are doing is working! "
These methosds can be used to help patients through detoxification programs, those suffering from diabetes, pre-diabetes, cholesterol and heart problems as well.
