Dr. Emma Minx, DC, CCSP, MS
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.

Dr. Saigh earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan (U of M) and a bachelor’s of science from Logan University.

While earning his doctorate, Dr. Saigh combined his love for high level athletics and rehabilitation, and became one of two students ever selected as chiropractic student residents at the University of Missouri (Mizzou). He administered chiropractic care to the 18 varsity teams and 700 athletes at Mizzou and observed surgeries first hand in the operating room to further enhance and inform his pre- and post-surgical maintenance of athletes under his care.

Paraquad leads the nation in helping patients with disabilities to increase their independence through choice and opportunity.
