After receiving treatment, she saw her injuries disappear and her performance on the field greatly improve. Because of the care she received, she went on to have a successful collegiate career. This ultimately influenced her decision to pursue a career as a chiropractor. Dr. Minx prides herself on understanding the biomechanics and injuries specific to many sports and activities. As a former high school and collegiate athlete and suffering several sports related injuries, she understands the importance of returning to play as quickly as possible. Her goal is to relieve the pain but also identify and treat the cause of the injury. She is certified in multiple treatment techniques – Diversified, Cox-Flexion Distraction, Active Release Techniques, kinesiology taping, and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization - which she feels is key to healing injuries more quickly.
