Dr. F. Michael Saigh, MD - Medical Director
Dr. Saigh, Sr., as he is called around the office, earned his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan (U of M) majoring in Biology with a minor in Psychology. He knew from a young age that he wanted to attend U of M and become a doctor. He wasted no time accomplishing both of those right after graduating from West Iron County High School in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
After medical school, Dr. Saigh, Sr. attended residency at Bon Secours Hospital in Grosse Pointe, MI. In his last year of residency, he was named Chief Resident at the hospital. Immediately after graduation, he became a board certified Family Physician and has held that distinction ever since. He previously held the post of President of the Superior Chapter Michigan Academy of Family Physicians.
Dr. Saigh Sr. has always had a love for the outdoors and you will find him spending most fall weekends in the woods when his beloved Michigan Wolverines are not taking the football field.

Dr. Emma Minx, DC, CCSP, MS - Clinic Director
Dr. Minx became a patient of chiropractic and ART after suffering from shoulder and back pain while playing high school softball. After receiving treatment, she saw her injuries disappear and her performance on the field greatly improve. Because of the care she received, she went on to have a successful collegiate career. This ultimately influenced her decision to pursue a career as a chiropractor.
Dr. Minx prides herself on understanding the biomechanics and injuries specific to many sports and activities. As a former high school and collegiate athlete and suffering several sports related injuries, she understands the importance of returning to play as quickly as possible. Her goal is to relieve the pain but also identify and treat the cause of the injury. She is certified in multiple treatment techniques – Diversified, Cox-Flexion Distraction, Active Release Techniques, kinesiology taping, and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization – which she feels is key to healing injuries more quickly.
