Dr. Scott McGillivray was born and raised playing elite levels of hockey in Sterling Heights, MI. He studied pre-medical health sciences while also playing men’s ice hockey at Oakland University. With injuries to deal with through his experience as a hockey player and no success with recovery guided by the medical profession, he was finally introduced to chiropractic care. It was only after seeing a chiropractor regularly that his body began to heal the injuries. At this point in time he realized that a future in the medical field was not right for him and that chiropractic is what he is supposed to do in order to most effectively pursue his passion of improving the lives of others.
In 2013, Dr. Scott graduated cum laude from Life University with a Doctorate of Chiropractic. During his time at Life, he excelled in his practice of the Thompson Technique and eventually served teaching other students as Life University’s Thompson Club president. In March 2013 Dr. Scott received his professional certification from the Thompson Technique Foundation. He has since advanced his analysis and adjusting expertise by incorporating the Pierce Results Technique.
Dr. Scott’s purpose is to empower his community and others around the world to control their health by educating people on the principles of specific chiropractic care and living a natural wellness lifestyle. For fun he likes playing hockey, working out, playing guitar, boxing, doing anything outdoors, and spending as much time as possible with friends and family.
Dr. Lynn Strazzo was born loving horses. When she was 6 years old, she refused to go to school until her parents got her horseback riding lessons. Needless to say, they obliged and from there her love for horses only grew deeper. She got her first horse when she was 12 and has been competing in horse shows ever since.
Due to the style and competitive nature of her riding, Dr. Lynn sustained several injuries. One day, Dr. Lynn was walking down a staircase and severely injured her lower back. She sought help from medical doctors and orthopedic surgeons who told her the only option was to have surgery on her spine. A family friend suggested she seek the care of a chiropractor for her injury. The chiropractor explained to her how she did not hurt her back from walking down the stairs but from the repetitive traumas associated with horseback riding, bad posture and poor sleeping habits, among other things. With chiropractic care, Dr. Lynn was able to recover fully without drugs or surgery. She also noticed the reduction of the need to use medications for symptoms related to bad allergies and asthma while under chiropractic care. A few months after starting chiropractic care, Dr. Lynn’s horse Lexi suffered an injury as well and no veterinarian was able to help her. It seemed natural for Dr. Lynn to take her horse to see a chiropractor too, since she personally has had great results. Because of this Dr. Lynn decided to become a chiropractor.
After graduating from Penn State with a degree in neuroscience, she applied to chiropractic college. Dr. Lynn headed down south to Atlanta, Georgia where she earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in 2013. While studying at Life University she became very involved in the work of Dr. Walter V. Pierce and became a certified practitioner in the Pierce Results System.
When she’s not in the office caring for patients, you’ll most likely find her in the barn or out riding.
