The Ashland Beacon
The Ashland Alliance held a ribbon-cutting Wednesday, Sept. 1 at the newest location of CORE Health Centers.
Alliance President Tim Gibbs and Membership Director Susan Callihan were on hand to help snip the satin at the full-service chiropractic clinic, which is located at 1103 Seaton Ave., right off U.S. 23 in Greenup.
The Greenup location, which is CORE's third, actually opened Feb. 1. The intent was to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier, but, "With COVID and all the craziness at the beginning of the year, we just lost track of time, honestly," said Dr. Rebekah Dunn, clinic director and chiropractor.
According to Dunn, CORE provides a complete range of chiropractic services, including, but by no means limited to, adjustments and manual therapies. The center is currently "on the lookout" for a massage therapist and hopes to begin offering that service soon, she said,
CORE also does on-site x-rays and reviews them with patients to help them better understand their treatment options, Dunn said.
The services CORE provides are aimed at assisting those who suffer from reoccurring pain. Through chiropractic treatments and therapies, the center is able to provide effective pain management without drugs or surgery, Dunn said. And, by tailoring individualized treatment plans, the underlying causes of pain symptoms can be addressed as well.
"Everyone deserves to live a pain-free life and our goal is to help the people in the communities we serve to achieve that," Dunn said.
CORE also has clinics in Ashland and Grayson.
The Greenup clinic is always accepting new patients and Dunn said the business has been well-received during its first six months of operation. She also said had fallen in love with the community during her time there.
"The people here are so close-knit," she said. "Our patients are like family."
