"Being a professional fighter and wrestler who travels a lot, it is extremely difficult to find quality health care professionals in the various cities I visit. I can honestly say I found a great chiropractor in Edmonton at the Chiropractic Wellness Studio. I was a little skeptical during my first visit with Dr. Mailie because I'm 6'3" and 260lbs while Dr. Mailie is small in stature. She completely proved me wrong, she is nothing short of incredible. After treatment by Dr Mailie, my body felt better than it has felt in a long time. Dr. Mailie is the best! Whenever I'm anywhere close to Edmonton I will definitely pay her a visit. Thank you Dr. Mailie!"
"I'm an avid trail runner and was training for an ultramarathon when after one run I had a sharp pain in my knee. I rested a week then tried a short 20min run and the pain was back worse than ever. I went to a sports doctor who diagnosed it as IT Band Syndrome. He tried to ease the pain by using the active release technique and recommended orthotics. After 6 weeks of no improvement I tried a few sessions of acupuncture with no relief. Finally I came across Dr. Megan's website and went to see her - after two adjustments I was able to run over 2 hours with no knee pain."
