Our Patients

This page is dedicated to our patients. We are fortunate to have so many people that find our work valuable in their extremely busy and active lives. We want to share some of them and their achievements with you. Virtually all of them subscribe to the same philosophy as we do…life is meant to be lived and the minute you stop moving…you begin to fall apart. Never give up. They don’t. Neither do we.

“Dr. Covey was an invaluable part of my marathon training. Thanks to her I was able to get my aching hamstrings under control, and successfully finish the Boston (3:55) and Big Sur (3:28) marathons just 13 days apart with no injuries”

“Thank you SO MUCH for your treatments so far. The ART has been invaluable to me – to my continuing recovery and to my mental sanity. I only wish I had known about you during the FIRST two years of my injury.”

“Lisa is an outstanding healthcare provider, not only for her ART and chiropractic work but also for her holistic approach to body work. Her caring and compassion are always evident in her sessions. Lisa consistently takes the time and energy to explore how various aspects of the patient’s life may be contributing to the aches and pains. With Lisa’s therapy, guidance, and encouragement, I’ve been able to stay healthy while training for and completing multiple ultramarathons. Many thanks to Lisa and Rikke for all their kindness and support!”

“The trip of a lifetime – I didn’t think I’d be able to stroll the beaches of Crete, much less do this strenuous hike to some distant ruins. Thanks Dr. Lisa and staff for helping get my plantar fasciitis onto a healing path without invasive techniques!”

“Dr. Covey has helped not only get rid of the pain I was feeling every day, but also has improved my way of thinking about my body and lifestyle. Thank you for all your help, Dr. Covey!”

“Thanks for keeping our rickety old bodies performing like well oiled machines…

I am very grateful for Fitwell Chiropractic. They were recommended to me separately by several different people including a trainer at my gym (Conner McGuire) and two teammates, Millie Dydasco and Annie Hoddinott. Millie struggled for years with an injury that she referred to as her “butt thing”. She tried all kinds of stuff but never got any relief. Finally she tried ART and was very pleased with her results. Unfortunately for me I developed the same problem and I constantly felt like I was going to pull something….I was very uncomfortable running much less trying to break out into a sprint. After working with Lisa only a few times, I felt comfortable running again and over time, I think I even improved my speed. I believe that working with Lisa helps me continue to participate in this game I love. Another thing I find very valuable is the help I get from Rikke. She takes customer service to a whole new level!

Anyhow, thanks Fitwell!”

“In a culture where we are usually too rushed, too busy and too impatient to listen to each other much less our own bodies, Dr. Covey is the rare practitioner who truly takes the time to get to know her patients. She embodies patience, compassion, knowledge and skill. More importantly, this is all topped off with a highly intuitive nature and warm personality that makes for a unique personal yet professional style that is rare. She listens and gets to know what you need in order to maintain a higher level of fitness and wellness. She has taught me to pay attention to the signs in my body and how my lifestyle impacts my health. Dr. Covey continues surpass my expectations in every way each time I visit her. Thanks Dr. Covey!”

“For over a year, I couldn’t make the pain in my shoulder go away, despite stretching and resting. I saw an orthopedic surgeon, who told me that a cortisone shot would be the next step. I was sure that a less invasive solution existed. Lisa was that solution, and it was not only less invasive, but more effective. She’s great!”

Thank you Dr. Covey.
