When Sheri was a child, she saw her brother get adjusted by a chiropractor after a sports injury and it amazed her how much it helped him. She was even more intrigued when she had her own sports injury and found that chiropractic was the only treatment that helped her. This led her to study chiropractic in undergrad and graduate school and when she graduated from chiropractic college, she started her own business, Millard Wellness Center. Millard Wellness works with patients on a variety of conditions and ages to return their bodies to full health. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, they also offer acupuncture, nutrition counseling, detoxification and massage.
