"As a patient care specialist, I work closely with our chiropractors in assisting and educating our patients to a better way of life. At Strand Spine Institute we are passionate about maximizing our clients' health and wellness and improving every quality of life.
Massage works with the body's regenerative capacity to promote self-healing, release locked-up energy, correct imbalances and provide the enjoyment of deep relaxation and sense of well-being. I work closely with the doctor to understand individual needs and assist with reduction of inflammatory response and lymphatic drainage to promote health and healing.

Dr. Fico has been nothing short of a godsend to me….
I walked in with neck pain at a 7-8 on the pain scale. Dr. Fico worked me up with scans, x-rays and an examination and developed a treatment plan. I walked out two months later with a pain level of 2-3. Very happy me. I continue to go see Dr. Fico for regular treatments to stay well. Kristy, their nutritionist took me under her belt and provided me with natural remedies for my pain, anxiety, depression and stomach issues. I did a 10 day cleanse with guidance - Worth it! The staff is so very kind, compassionate and caring. I felt like I was going to see friends that cared about my entire wellbeing and health, not just my neck. Forever grateful!.
Meet with the expert practitioners at Strand Spine! You’ll enjoy the care, wisdom, guidance and accountability they provide. Working with Dr. Parada and Kristy Whitehead has helped me significantly in my progress towards a healthier, more productive life. My regular adjustments, prescribed exercises and nutrition plan have increased my energy levels, changed my eating habits and prepared me well for my marathon this past January. I’ve lost weight, increased my flexibility and feel great.

Dr. Fico was referred to me by Dr. Waters an Orthopedic Surgeon. I have also been evaluated by Neuro Surgeons with no hope short of surgery. I was in constant lower back pain, unable to stand or walk without the help of a cane. Dr. Fico and his very professional staff treated my wife and I like family.
Using the Spinal Decompression machine and spinal manipulation my compromised spine with two bulging discs, birth defects, began to heal. In only eighteen treatments I can now enjoy shopping for hours, travel in a car, vacation, and do normal house hold responsibilities without pain or limitations. I recommend the Strand Spine Institute to anyone that wishes to regain and maintain a healthy , happy life.
I was worse off than I thought and we talked about a long term plan rather than the quick fix I was used to. After recommending the DRX9000 for treating my neck and back problems, I was on board. But I have to admit, I didn’t have the highest hopes. My skepticism disappeared when we saw the x-rays of my spine after I had finished my treatments. The space that was missing between my lower discs from the initial X-ray was now back significantly. Having a multitude of tools at his disposal like K-Laser treatment definitely helped in my recovery.

Three years ago I came to Strand Spine Institute because I could not sit for any period of time without pain in my sciatic nerve. I had never been to a chiropractor but did not want to take drugs so I gave the chiropractor option a try. After taking a set of x-rays and discussing my lifestyle, Dr. Fico came up with a treatment plan which included Spinal Decompression, chiropractic adjustments every couple of days and ice daily. After a few weeks of this treatment, my sciatica had greatly improved and sitting for a period of time was no longer an issue. I did not want this to happen again so we discussed on-going treatment as well as wellness. I have continued monthly with Spinal Decompression, Chiropractic Adjustments and an occasional K-Laser treatment.
I have added probiotics to my supplements and changed to the Metagenics Wellness Essentials. All of these plus workouts with my personal trainer at the gym have greatly improved my back as well as my knees. The staff at Strand Spine Institute has been such a blessing in my well-being and even though I am 67 I feel like I am younger than that and able to do so much. Wish it would improve my golf game!!
