A team approach aimed at long-term results for chronic pain and discomfort is the focus of Tri-State Clinic of Chiropractic, which has opened at 2686 Huntsville Highway in Fayetteville.
Owned by Dr. Chad Mathey and his wife, Dr. Nicole Mathey, both doctors of chiropractic, the clinic is located in the former Wallace Construction Co. building in the Park City area, where the Fayetteville/Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce hosted grand opening ceremonies on Oct. 11.
A Fayetteville Rotarian, Chad is a graduate of the Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Mo., where he earned his degree in December of 2001.
“I was blessed to gain expertise and experience in a thriving practice in Overland Park, Kan., before moving to Longmont, Colo., in June of 2002,” he said, adding that he and his wife, a fourth generation chiropractor, opened their own private practice in July of that same year.
Nicole is a graduate of Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas, where she earned her degree in 1999. She is board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
“As a chiropractor for over 10 years, I have had the opportunity to help thousands of patients with a wide variety of ailments,” she said. “My mission has always been to restore health through natural chiropractic care, allowing my patients to live their lives to the fullest.”
Having grown up on the front range of Colorado and being a fourth generation chiropractor, she has deep roots in the profession – “I grew up knowing there is a cause for ailments, and treating the cause rather than the symptom makes more sense and is the much healthier way to go,” she said. “I want to share my passion for health by helping others through chiropractic.”
Chad was an amateur powerlifter in undergraduate school back in Oklahoma where he grew up. After sustaining an injury from the bench press, he sought out chiropractic care for help.
“The care allowed me to get back on track and continue to success as a powerlifter,” he said. “Needless to say, I was so impressed with my results that I decided to change from physical therapy major to a chiropractic major.
“I discovered that chiropractic is restorative, preventative, and has no side effects, and knew then it was my life’s mission to share the chiropractic massage with others that are looking for a natural solution to many various serious health conditions.”
Both being from small towns, the Matheys decided they wanted to also raise their family in a small town – “An opportunity popped up here, and after learning about the area, we sold our practice and got here as fast as we could!” said Chad. “We love here and expect great things for our family.”
“We are a Christian family and blessed to have three beautiful children,” Nicole added. “It is thrilling for us to become part of this wonderful community and begin the rest of our lives, serving and helping our neighbors.”
