Vernon H. Kaczmarski, AS, BS, DC

Dr Kaczmarski has been in practice since January 1991, having graduated from Western State Chiropractic College in December 1990, and is a member of the Washington State Chiropractic Association. He utilizes the Gonsted method as well as diversified techniques with his practice. He also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Microbiology from the University of Washington and an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Respiratory Therapy from Highline Community College. While attaining his degrees Dr. Kaczmarski worked for 10 years as a respiratory therapist for Group Health cooperative in Seattle and with various clinics within the Portland, Oregon area.

Dr. Kaczmarski's background experience working in hospitals and emergency rooms as a respiratory therapist has been a valuable asset that inevitably led to becoming a chiropractor. His diagnostic and radiographic skills are well-respected. In his practice he has successfully treated patients with sports-, work-, automobile-, and home-related injuries. In consulting with patients he takes a very hands on, personal approach in getting to know each individual by becoming familiar with their work and lifestyle habits. This enables him to evaluate, treat and educate them toward a more holistic path to wellness. He teaches each individual the values of chiropractic in relation to the spine and postural biomechanics. He motivates patients to be self-directed through recovery to develop healthy eating habits, exercise regularly and understand the importance of balanced physical and mental health in everyday living.

Dr Kaczmarski is very dedicated to his patients and the chiropractic profession. He continues his post graduate education by attending chiropractic, radiography and philosophy classes and seminars. He remains aware of new techniques and changes within the ever changing health care environment. In keeping with his beliefs regarding physical and mental health, sports play an active role in Dr. Kaczmarski's lifestyle. He participates in seasonal league softball and football, as well as snow and water skiing, river rafting, kayaking, running, cycling and weight training. He participates in health related fund raising events and routinely gives educational talks on the importance of chiropractic care to local businesses.

I hope that his background information may be helpful to you in choosing a chiropractor to help you with your injury health needs.

Amber Nixon, ND, LAc

Dr. Amber G. Nixon is a Naturopathic Physician and Acupuncturist, having graduated from Bastyr University, the leading naturopathic medical school in the nation. She also received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition and Food Science from San Diego State University. She has journeyed to Europe and China to learn the ancient therapies that are the origins of the medicine she practices, and has over ten years of training in the health care field, with extensive knowledge of chronic disease and the mind body connection.

She is invested in her patients’ success and works with them as a team to reach their personal and wellness goals. Dr. Nixon is extremely passionate about preventive medicine and loves coming to work everyday. She believes in getting to the root cause of what ails you; and that the body has an innate power to heal itself given the right tools. Dr. Nixon will work with you personally to find the cause of the problem and to restore the natural balance of your mind and body. Being a Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist, and Chinese herbalist gives her an advanced and unique perspective on health and wellness. Of special interest to her is how psychological health can limit or enhance quality of life and recovery. Dr. Nixon is most interested in working together with her patients to over come obstacles to cure, and improve their quality of life using the naturopathic principles and acupuncture. Dr.Nixon takes a functional and integrative approach to patient care; and prefers research focused and results based medicine.

Dr. Nixon can run basic screening lab as well as cutting edge labs that your regular primary care physician does not. These tests can show her how to prevent chronic disease that runs in your family so you can stop chronic disease before it starts; and allows her to find food sensitivities and allergies that may be causing low-grade inflammation in your body leaving you feeling less energetic, unmotivated, having uncomfortable GI symptoms, increased pain, weight gain and disturbed sleep.

Dr. Nixon uses diet and lifestyle therapy, herbal medicine and nutritional supplements to restore energy and help you get the lifestyle that you used to have or have always wanted. Dr. Nixon will take the time to get to know you personally and treat you as a whole person.

Dr. Nixon has been formally trained in RIT (Regenerative Injection Therapy). If suffering form chronic joint pain and muscle tension due to injuries and/or arthritis, or acute injuries with tendon and/or ligament rupture Dr.Nixon will use prolotherapy and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections to re-stabilize painful or injured joints. These injections strengthen the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints by stimulating stem cells; unlike cortisone injections that degrade tissues with repetitive use and weaken the surrounding tissue and joint.
