This Summer, we hired Dr. Erik Arter as our fourth Colorado Springs Chiropractor, and he has added two main services to the Thrive Health Systems menu of services: Atlas Orthogonal and Auricular Therapy. Likely, you haven't heard of either of these health care solutions because they are niche techniques within the chiropractic and acupuncture industries.
Auricular therapy uses a micro electronic stylus applied to various areas of the ear. It has its origin in acupuncture, but it is not acupuncture. There are no needles or puncturing of the skin.
To read about some of the success stories Dr. Arter has experienced while practicing Auricular Therapy and to learn more about the technique, simply go to our Colorado Springs Auricular Therapy page.
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."
