We'd like to welcome our newest Colorado Springs Chiropractor, Dr. Erik Arter, to the Thrive Health Systems team.
Dr. Arter specializes in two techniques, though he also performs the services you typically think of when you think "chiropractor." Those techniques are: Atlas Orthogonal and Auricular Therapy. Dr. Arter also uses functional medicine and nutrition to improve patients chronic conditions and diseases.
Dr. Arter is 31 years old and has four children. His family is from Colorado and he loves the outdoors, so he is excited to plug into the Colorado Springs community.
Thrive Health Systems added a fourth doctor to diminish wait times, improve scheduling accessibility, increase patients' time with the doctor, and serve the many new patients that seek Thrive out.
Dr. Arter came to Thrive Health Systems, "Because I wanted to work in a place that has a philosophy that aligns with my own. Where I worked before was a great place, but it had a very narrow scope and at Thrive we are able to treat so many conditions because we are a 'one-stop-shop.' Being a chiropractor, it is easy to get boxed into being a "back cracker" or someone who deals strickly with back pain, but that's not how I or Thrive sees this profession. At Thrive, I love that we have cold laser therapy, Class 4 lasers, blood tests, spinal decompression, and more. I have the tools and the philosophy I need to do great things for my patients."
Welcome to the new Thrive Health Systems website. This site means more than great information and web presence. This is website embodies our expanding mission and vision.
Thrive started as Thrive - A Chiropractic Experience. It was a Colorado Springs chiropractic clinic only, serving a very small segment of symptoms, like back pain and neck pain.
However, health is so interconnected that Dr. Molly Kallenbach, co-founder of Thrive, began expanding Thrive's services and eventually was forced to expand the brand name to Thrive Health Systems.
Thrive now offers massage, chiropractic, spinal decompression, cold laser therapy, Class IV laser therapy, personal training, weight loss, nutritional counseling, and more. It truly is a health system for preventative health care, which saves patients money and all the difficulty of enduring future diseases.
Kaiser Health News published that 75% of all health care dollars in the US (which amounts to about $1.5 trillion) are spent on preventable, chronic disease.
This is where Thrive Health Systems excels. We work to help patients maintain balance in the body - called homeostasis. We call this "align with your design." What has stuck with Thrive Health Systems from its previous brand is the philosophy that if the body is "aligned with it's design," then it maintains and heals itself.
We hope you enjoy the new website. We consider this site in its infant stage, so count on great progress and development: more content, forums, stores, and more. One of the newest things you will see is a new supplement store. You can order direct through the site, and your everyday supplements will be drop shipped to your door.
