Dr. Melissa Sonners, a Doctor of Chiropractic, has extensive training in Prenatal/Post-partum and Pediatric Care. She is dedicated to bringing the latest research to parents and children, whether they are trying to pursue healthy lifestyles or navigating the complex world of developmental delays and disorders. Melissa completed the functional neurology childhood developmental course through the Carrick Institute, and she is also one of only 52 professionals who earned her Diplomate in Chiropractic Pediatrics from the Academy of Family Practice in North America.
Dr. Sonners and her husband, Dr. Jason Sonners, met at chiropractic school and quickly discovered their shared desire to impact people’s lives. They have three children, and do their best to help educate their kids to be the healthiest versions of themselves. Their oldest child was born at the hospital (6 weeks early) and spent time in the NICU; the other two were born at home. Levi, Wyatt and Kaia are currently 8, 6 and 2 and follow the 80/20 principle of eating clean 80% of the time and allowing treats now and then. Melissa and Jason are committed parents helping their kids navigate a healthy lifestyle while living in a world where that isn’t always the easiest or most obvious choice.
Since becoming a parent and experiencing health challenges of her own, Melissa has become passionate about the importance of self-care. Nearly two years ago, Melissa was hit with a neurological form of lyme disease that included diagnoses of meningitis and encephalitis. She calls lyme disease one of her greatest gifts, since it forced her to put herself closer to the top of her daily to do list. She enjoys speaking and teaching on self-care and hopes it helps inspire other women to take better care of themselves.
Together, Melissa and Jason Sonners use their knowledge to create comprehensive programs and help patients achieve their health goals. Their patients are dealing with a variety of autoimmune and neurological conditions, allergies, autism, cancer and many others. The doctors combine Chiropractic, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Nutrition, Exercise, Detoxification programs and much more to help naturally support patients and guide them through their health challenges.
