Meet the Doctors

 

Drs. Scott and Melissa

Drs. Scott and Melissa selected Hastings, MN to open Millner Family Chiropractic (MFC) over 19 years ago. Their practice has grown over time building upon their shared passion of helping people of all ages experience the greatest level of health the most natural means available.

Soon after opening MFC, an even bigger dream was born: owning a health facility where people in Hastings and the surrounding communities could experience a new natural approach to whole person care. With the opening of Health Solutions Center, the dream has now become a reality. Health Solutions Center (HSC) is a gathering of like-minded health professionals, all in one building, offering scientifically backed services for whole person care.

Dr. Scott is one of the first doctors of chiropractic to have earned the prestigious status of Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practitioner (C.C.W.P.) He successfully completed the comprehensive post graduate educational program and was awarded the C.C.W.P. status by the International Chiropractors Association’s Council on Wellness Science.

Dr. Melissa has earned her Diplomate in chiropractic Pediatrics with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA.) This three year, 360 hour postgraduate course has armed her with the advanced skills and techniques to better care for children and pregnant woman.

The specialized training gives the doctors the ability to find and correct the source of your health concern through individualized care plans versus the more conventional practice of treating and masking your symptoms.

Drs. Scott and Melissa care for adults and children suffering from migraines, acid reflux, sleeplessness, ear infections, stomach and bowel disorders, carpal tunnel pain, stiffness, allergies, asthma, food and environmental allergies, and many other conditions stemming from a low functioning immune system. Another area the doctors focus on is stabilizing your body’s core allowing for optimum performance. Whether or not you are an athlete, a strong and stable core is critical for your health.

“True health is so very valuable. We believe with proper education and knowledge, people gain more control over their health than they previously thought possible. We are truly excited to share our vision of total body care with you. Come experience well rounded, whole person, corrective care approach at Health Solutions Center. We believe you will be amazed at the difference.”

Hundreds of local and professional athletes worldwide have used ARPwave technology along with the “In-Balance” technique for injury prevention, accelerated recovery, and improved performance. ARPwave is a patented, FDA approved method for working with various types of soft tissue injuries. ARPwave finds the origin of the pain, treats it and rapidly eliminates the symptoms for real results ­­– fast. Typically the pain symptoms are reduced about 25% after one ARP treatment.

The “In Balance” technique is a blend of applied kinesiology and functional neurology that highlights the “disconnects” in how the nervous system is communicating with the muscles. Slow or weak communication will cause the muscles to respond late and with less strength.

Once these “disconnects” are stabilized (think of gapping a spark plug properly) the absorption and transfer of force is maximized. Along with the ARP  protocols compensation patterns can now be eliminated, increased circulation optimized healing, overall strength and stability increase and recovery time is greatly shortened.

The ARPwave machine can also permeate scar tissue, increase the circulation in the area, and flush the toxins from inflammation and scar tissue out of the body.

After achieving unparalleled results with my personal injuries as well as my family’s I decided that this was my “missing link.” After years of various therapies and unacceptable results I had finally found what worked. The proof is in the results reported from friends, family, and clients!!

Tammy 

 

Tammy was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. She moved to Bay City, WI March 2016 with her husband, Greg. They love the outdoors. They like to float around on the pontoon, jig for fish through the ice, invite friends and neighbors over for cookouts, or just sit on the deck watching the barges and boats float along the Mississippi. Tammy is an avid reader.  If a book is well-written she finds it difficult to put down. She enjoys being part of our patients’ journey.  Her favorite part of the job is when she notices a distinct change in a patient.  To see someone who once was in pain now walk into our office with a smile on their face is quite gratifying.
