Chiropractor St. Petersburg FL

Welcome to Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness, located in beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida.  At Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness we understand you can’t be at your best for yourself, your family, or your community if you’re in pain or are concerned about your health.  Our St. Petersburg chiropractor Kelley Mulhern listens to your concerns, perform appropriate testing, and make prompt referrals when they’re needed.

Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness

Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness is located in Scott Medical Center, one block West of St. Pete General Hospital.  We’re approximately one mile from the Tyrone Mall, and 2 miles from the Bay Pines area of St. Petersburg, FL.  We have plenty of free parking!

Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness isn’t right for everyone in St. Petersburg, FL, and we don’t accept everyone as a patient.  If you’re looking for a quick “crack” or a “pop” once in a blue moon, or If you don’t understand the need for a comprehensive spinal exam before letting someone adjust your spine, this is not the office for you.  We work with people who are committed to making a change in their health.  If the chiropractic and wellness services we offer the aren’t what you need, we won’t waste your time or your money.

We take your health very seriously and have a thorough intake process.  First, you’ll sit with the doctor to review your current concerns, past health history, illness, injuries, medications, family history, and more.  Next, a comprehensive spinal examination is performed, including orthopedic tests, neurological tests, range of motion, and x-rays if clinically indicated.  This completes your first visit and can take up to one hour.  You’ll then be scheduled for a second appointment with the doctor. This is called a “Report of Findings” and is where the doctor will explain the examination results, the x-ray findings, and the diagnoses.  You’ll have plenty of time to ask questions.  Based on your goals and her findings, the doctor will make treatment or referral recommendations, and you can decide how you’d like to proceed.  Of course, a 15-minute consultation with our chiropractor in St. Petersburg is always complimentary.

Over the past few years, we’ve discovered a few common misconceptions about chiropractic in the St. Petersburg, FL, area.

1. All chiropractors are the same

This could not be further from the truth!  As with any other profession, there can be wide variation in the skills and abilities of a chiropractor in St. Petersburg, FL. 

2. One or two adjustments should "fix" me

While your pain may be greatly decreased or eliminated after a few adjustments, it takes repetition and time to change soft tissue patterns.  Most people would never go to a gym 2-3 times and expect to change their physique…yet many people think that 2-3 adjustments are all they need.

3. An examination prior to treatment is unnecessary or should be performed on the same day as my first adjustment

Chiropractors work with the spine, which houses part of your central nervous system.  Your central nervous system, along with your peripheral nerves, control, regulate, and maintain every single function in your body.  There are a lot of things for a chiropractor to consider before making an adjustment, and that is not a process that should be rushed.

4. I only need what my insurance pays for / I should only use a chiropractor who is “in-network” with my insurance company

While people pay a lot for their insurance benefits and understandably want to use their insurance, it should not be the deciding factor in selecting a chiropractor in St. Petersburg, FL or in deciding on treatment options.  Most insurance policies have high deductibles and high specialist co-pays, making out-of-network benefits or cash plans more affordable than insurance!  Additionally, most insurance companies are “managed care” systems, which means neither you nor your treating chiropractor can determine how many visits you can use in what time frame.  Those decisions get made by an employee of the insurance company.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want an insurance company making my healthcare decisions!

"Dr. Kelley and her husband Michael run a welcoming, energizing practice that you feel as soon as you walk through the door. Dr. Kelley's approach is ideal, it's almost like getting a mini massage, but she also uses appropriate force during the adjustments."

« Amy L. »

"I see Dr. Kelley on a weekly basis and that is one of the best decisions I have made. I highly recommend this chiropractor care center if you are looking for help with any aches and pains. You couldn't be in better hands."
