Vancouver WA Chiropractic Care: Activating Wellness from Within
Dr. Jeffrey Melin hails from Silverdale, Washington where grew up playing varsity football and baseball as well as wrestling for Central Kitsap High School. Following high school, Dr. Melin attended the University of Washington, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. An alumnus of Dr. Melin’s fraternity first introduced Dr. Melin to chiropractic care. Dr. Melin spent a morning with the alumnus, a practicing chiropractor, and was fascinated by how the alumnus adjusted patients to relieve chronic pain and treat complex health ailments. The experience sparked Dr. Melin’s curiosity in chiropractic care, and he began learning as much as he could about the health benefits of chiropractic adjustments. Three years later after that initial encounter, Dr. Melin enrolled in chiropractic school at the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. Today, he’s excited to share the knowledge he gained with his patients and pass on his passion for whole body health.
As an avid snowboarder, wakeboarder, hiker and gym-goer, Dr. Melin understands that physical stress on the body is inevitable. But it is not just physical stress that affects the body – mental stress can also have a big impact on an individual’s well being and create tension that becomes trapped within the fascia, the body’s connective tissue. This tension can lead to restricted mobility and increases the risk for chronic pain and injury. A herniated disc, slipped disc or bulging disc can further complicate this situation, triggering recurring pain. Our Vancouver WA chiropractic care focuses on whole body health, which means that Dr. Melin addresses both physical and emotional stressors to restore proper alignment to the spine and relieve tension.
Dr. Melin uses Diversified manual adjustments and myofascial release techniques similar to the Graston technique and ART. These adjusting techniques are essential to bringing proper alignment back to a patient’s musculoskeletal system and releasing trapped tension. Additionally, these techniques strengthen the body and deliver enhanced pain relief. Dr. Melin takes care of himself with routine chiropractic adjustments, a healthy diet and regular exercise for a daily dose of post-workout endorphins. As a chiropractor, he works closely with his patients to not only help them manage pain, but also transition to a healthy lifestyle.
To complement his background in chiropractic care, Dr. Melin is currently completing coursework in sports rehabilitation and will soon be studying to receive his “Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner” certificate.
