What is Thrive?
Thrive is a rebuttal to the growing trend of fast food medicine, and profit driven healthcare. Just high quality, one on one, patient-centric care.
3 Areas of Practice
The Recipe to staying fit and healthy is simple: Perform, Recover, and Repeat. At THRIVE we focus on these 3 ingredients to facilitate your health and fitness journey.
Want to perform better?
To get you performing at the top of your potential we offer sport specific movement and mobility assessments such as the Titleist Performance Institute assessment for golfers, and the WODMedic Movement and Mobility Assessment for fitness athletes. We then use the results of the assessment to prescribe custom mobility or stability exercises to boost your performance.
How about recover faster?
Our Performance Recovery Therapy (PRT) sessions are absolute game changers for fitness athletes, runners, or triathletes. It's true that you can only train as hard as you recover, and now thanks to PRT you will be able to recover hard! Learn more about our medical grade recovery options by clicking below.
Need to shake an injury?
Injury can get in the way of your ability to continue to train or function at the level you desire. Don't let injury slow you down or keep you from the activities you enjoy. We offer high quality one on one treatment utilizing cutting edge Chiropractic care, Functional Rehabilitation, and Manual Therapy.
Who we're for:
At THRIVE, we are uniquely positioned to meet the chiropractic and rehabilitation needs of the active individual and weekend warrior's in the Montgomery area. This includes runners, fitness athletes, golfers, and active families.
What we Do:
Our Fueling Beliefs:
1. We believe the only factor that should guide healthcare decision making is, "What is best for the patient?", not "What will reimburse the most?".
3. We believe in forming a partnership with the patient, to establish what their individual goals and needs are, rather than attempting to impart our own goals on to the patient.
5. We believe in supporting the communities that support us, so if you feel we could be of service in any way please reach out.
2. We believe that the traditional mill style, mega clinic is, and should be, a dying model, as patients grow smarter and take charge of their health.
4. We believe in spending the extra time with patients to ensure that all of their questions are answered, and that they are fully educated on their condition.
6. We believe in using our medical knowledge as a tool to optimize our patients lives and maximize their performance, rather than merely to control pain.
The Thrive Story
Of course this isn't the entire story, just the parts that are relevant to the launching of THRIVE. In fact, it's not really MY story. More accurately it's OUR story. The story of how after 6 years of swimming upstream, I had grown ever more frustrated by a broken model of healthcare and the patients that are left to deal with it. I've seen medical providers make healthcare decisions for their patients based on what their insurance covered, rather than what may be best for the patient. I've seen doctor's supposedly "diagnosing" patients without ever touching them or moving them around, choosing instead to take unnecessary X-rays or MRIs. I've seen patients getting bounced around between different medical specialties without anyone ever taking the time to educate them on their conditions and their options.
However, I've also seen that patients are growing smarter and getting more involved in their healthcare, often times choosing to self treat rather than go to a doctor that they know will only tell them to quit running or quit working out. Patients are tired of being seen as merely nameless stats and dollar signs, and that's a good thing! It's a justified frustration, shared by an increasingly more educated patient base that is crossing over the summit of an informational tipping point, that will eventually push the balance of power back to the patient to whom it belongs.
As I admitted earlier, I've been on the front lines at one of these mega,box clinics. Although I never gave in, I've been pressured by corporate to follow scripted care plans, to limit my time with patients, to bill more, and to see patients more often than I felt was necessary. I've willingly chosen my principles over a fatter paycheck and more money for the suits.
As much it frustrated me, I eventually grew to realize that if the patient was EVER expected to be the most important part of the equation, that I would have to build a model from the ground up that reflected that principle. A model that proves that there are still medical providers that are dedicated to being masters of their craft, because that's what patients expect and what they deserve.
THERE'S A BETTER WAY. THERE IS A SOLUTION.
