Meet the Doctors
Dr. Melanie Gartside
Dr. Melanie was born and raised in the small town of Breese, Illinois. She played volleyball throughout high school, helped out at her parents small business and also suffered with a severe case of Eczema since the age of 12. After bouncing from specialist to specialist for YEARS just to receive the same steriod creams, she was becoming desperate when told it was an "incurable disease" she would be stuck with for the rest of her life. Thankfully, a family friend referred her to a Doctor of Chiropractic that not only helped her body cure her Eczema but change the trajectory of her life and health forever. She was taught the true meaning of health and how it is expressed, shortly there after Dr. Melanie began attending the Logan College of Chiropractic. Through Max Living she learned to deliver key protocols that allow her patients to function at their full potential. After graduating Logan, Dr. Melanie dedicated another year of training to receive advanced certification in spinal correction, nutrition and detoxification.
Dr. Melanie has planted her roots here in NWA to continue her passion and help our community thrive towards TRUE health.
Our staff members work with our doctors every day to provide our patients with a professional and friendly experience.
Front Desk Chiropractic Assistant
Amber grew up on a very unstable foundation of health, constantly eating foods with no nutritional value led her to eat large amounts just to feel "satisfied" throughout the day. Growing up overweight led her down a slippery slope of self-esteem issues, unnecessary sickness/suffering, lack of physical activity and a perfect environment to brew disease. When Amber made it to InVision she found out her spine was in pretty bad shape for a 19 yr old who had never been in a car wreck, had a traumatic injury or been involved in sports. The X-ray review revealed the answers to her sleepless nights and sessions on the floor to get relief from her back pain; an unnatural curve in her upper back was close to Scoliosis, uneven hips, and a 50% loss of the proper curve in her Cervical spine were the culprit. A combination of these issues, unknowing of how her body worked brought about an extra 55lbs of extra weight, a wrecked digestive system and the unnatural misalignment's in her spine.. there was plenty of work to be done!
Dr. Melanie started her healing process with the knowledge of proper nutrition and an aggressive approach plan for spinal correction. After just a couple of weeks in the office Amber noticed multiple changes in her body and also in her mood/mindset. Fast forward 4 years... she's down to her lowest weight, has a perfect spine, feel's strong in her body and with her life and is now training to become a Licensed Massage Therapist to help patients further their healing.
