I’m excited to introduce myself to you all and start this blog at Active Health Solutions. My name is Maya Radonich, and I’m a Doctor of Chiropractic joining the AHS team. My full bio can be found on our website here. I recently finished school in Portland, OR at Western States University, where I’ve been full-time learning about chiropractic, injury rehab, and sports medicine for the past 3 years. I’m so excited to finally be in practice and seeing patients here in Anchorage!
I’m originally from Anchorage and grew up like many Alaskans - skiing, biking, hiking, and adventuring all over the state. That led me into skiing for the UAA cross-country ski team for several years during my undergraduate studies. Having sustained many over-use injuries from training and racing, as well as several concussions and assorted other injuries, I have been a patient of chiropractic for a long time. My focus is mainly on sports rehab, but I treat a wide variety of things in practice.
Most importantly, I understand that when athletes are injured, the last thing they want to do is take time off from training. I do my best to get people back to full speed with as little impact on training as possible. I focus on teaching patients to strengthen weak areas that are the root of their injuries, and not just chasing the pain they may be having. Treating pain as well as the root cause of the pain goes together in our practice.
I am joining two awesome chiropractors at AHS – Dr. Michael Fleming and Dr. Ben Cain. Our office focuses on chiropractic sports medicine and rehabilitation. We treat all areas of the body including but not limited to full spine, ribs, extremities, and jaw. We see all types of injuries walk through the door ranging from acute injuries like falls or crashes, to chronic over-use injuries such as rotator cuff pain and postural dysfunction. Our docs use a variety of techniques to perform myofascial release, chiropractic manipulations, instrument assisted soft tissue therapy, kinesiotaping, and therapeutic exercises for rehab. More on what we offer can be found here.
Thanks for joining me on this blog, and look for more posts soon about the types of injuries we treat and the rehab that goes along with them!
