Dr. Derek has also been a ringside physician for some of Nashville's mixed martial art events.
Dr. Liz is a native New Yorker who is glad to be away from the snow! While attending college in North Carolina she was introduced to two chiropractors who performed acupuncture and found her calling. "I was so inspired by the tremendous results that were achieved without the use of drugs or surgery that I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life." She is a fellow with the Acupuncture Society of America and has a Master's in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. In the community she is a graduate of Leadership Donelson-Hermitage and has co-chaired the Youth Excelling in Learning Leadership program for local eleventh graders.
Dr. Charlie Amborn is an alumnus of The University of Mississippi, where he obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science.

He was amazed by the results the patients achieved and fell in love with the holistic approach of care. In 2012, Dr. Charlie graduated from Life University Chiropractic School in Marietta, Georgia.
After receiving his doctorate, he worked as a Sports Chiropractor for Life University Sports Science Institute and Kennesaw State University while completing his Master’s Degree in Sports Health Science.
