Brandi Rashidian – Clinic Director

Brandi grew up in the Midwest with chiropractic care as a part of her normal wellness regime, so it is no surprise that she ended up marrying one of the 3 most skilled Chiropractic Physicians this area has ever seen. Brandi and Dr. Amir have been married for 14 years and have 3 active little boys. Brandi and Dr. Amir started Mid Atlantic Chiropractic Center together 13 years ago and have really loved becoming an integral part of the Frederick Community. When Brandi isn’t taking care of the boys or the Clinic, she really enjoys sharing her gift of hospitality. She is known for hosting dinners and parties for the Clinic staff, family, and friends even sometimes at a moment’s notice. She has also been found using her skills and talents in the area of event planning assisting non-profits such as Habitat For Humanity of Frederick County and also Grace Community Church where they attend regularly as a family. She truly has a passion for Chiropractic and loves hearing patients share stories of their success.

When asked to give one piece of advice for individuals new to chiropractic care she said this, “Don’t let chiropractic care be your last resort. I have seen so many people suffer for far too long that could have been helped far sooner than they were otherwise. I have heard so many people over the years say, I wish I would have come sooner. One problem is that most of us are willing to spend a lot of money on the next big “quick fix” but the reality is that sometimes it takes time to achieve our health goals. Stop listening to the naysayers and just be willing to do something you have never done and maybe you will get the results you have never gotten! You deserve to be happy, healthy, and pain free.”

Kristen Willard – Lead Clinical Trainer

Kristen joined the team in March of 2017. Kristen received her associate’s degree in Medical Assisting through FCC where she graduated with honors. She also is a Certified Chiropractic Assistant. Kristen enjoys seeing how chiropractic care has improved the lives of her patients. She looks forward to continuing to see her patients achieve their goals and improve their health. Kristen is originally from California and moved to Maryland 13 years ago. Her favorite thing about living in Maryland is the changing seasons; she is one of those unique individuals who especially enjoy Maryland winters! She enjoys getting back to visit family and spending time with her husband. Prior to joining the team and receiving care, Kristen experienced severe pain and tingling all throughout her legs and feet, with occasional tingling throughout the entire body. The pain was so severe that it made the simplest things nearly impossible. On one occasion, she was trying to grocery shop and the pain became so overwhelming that she became nauseous and barely made it out of the store before she collapsed.

She had to wear compression braces daily just to walk. After seeing medical doctor after medical doctor and being told they did not know what was wrong and “sometimes things just happen” and they do not know why she began to give up hope. After her first adjustment, the tingling was gone. The pain has subsided for the most part, but even her worst day is 85% better than it used to be. She no longer has to wear braces daily and has started getting back to the things she enjoys, such as exercising and shopping. She is truly grateful for the life-changing effects chiropractic has had in her life, and loves helping others reach their goals as well.

Our family has a long term relationship with MAC. Our needs were addressed directly in our first visits and we were given an detailed program to follow.

The Mid Atlantic Clinic of Chiropractic continuously strives to provide its customers with holistic chiropractic wellness. Specializing in a range of different chiropractic techniques, our services can be utilized for various medical conditions. This includes posture correction and chiropractor treatment for migraines, back pain, sciatica, and pediatric chiropractic.

Our services have been carefully designed to incorporate state-of-the-art techniques and newer methods to provide safe and effective results. Taking a personalized approach to each client, we work with a set of “blueprint” techniques that are modified on a case-to-case basis. This strategy ensures patients benefit from tried and tested treatment methods while targeting their unique needs.  Since every condition impacts patients differently, our highly versatile approach provides consistent results across clientele and the severity of symptoms.

Here is a brief description of all the services offered at Mid Atlantic Clinic of Chiropractic:

Chiropractic Care:

This includes advanced spinal corrective treatment to address a range of issues, including leg pain, back pain, and spine misalignment. Our chiropractic care utilizes special manipulative therapy techniques that can help increase the range of motion, promote balance, realign the spine, and reduce inflammation. Chiropractic care can be beneficial for pregnant women suffering from back pain. It can also help athletes and veterans with injury rehabilitation.

Corrective Exercises and Spinal Rehabilitation Program:

Depending on their needs and requirements, clients may be assigned different techniques and exercises for faster recovery. However, corrective exercises and techniques are commonly used for spine rehabilitation and other back-related conditions. With over 30-40% correction rate, these exercises are easy to follow and can be conveniently carried out in the comfort of your home. In addition to spinal rehabilitation, these exercises are designed to help with muscle and connective tissue misalignment.

Cox Flexion Distraction:

Cox Flexion Distraction is a popular manipulative technique effective for chiropractic treatments. This hands-on spinal manipulation technique relieves back, neck and leg pain and severe spinal conditions. The Cox Flexion Distraction technique decompresses the spine through gentle stretching or applying traction to the lower spine. It is a non-surgical treatment that can also restore the range of motion in the joints and muscles, promoting flexibility and better posture.

Lifestyle Advice:

In addition to corrective and manipulative techniques for back relief, our chiropractic clinic also provides lifestyle coaching. Patients are informed and guided on avoiding specific activities that may make their symptoms worse. The service ensures patients can lead happy and fulfilling life without compromising their quality of living.

Nutritional Counseling:

Nutritional counseling services provide individualized dietary plans catering to patients' nutritional needs. This includes everything from a strictly structured diet for optimal recovery to prescription supplements to combat deficiencies.

Spinal & Postural Screenings:

Several reasons may contribute to posture and spinal issues. For effective results, we utilize screenings to reveal the overall functioning of muscles in alignment with the bones. This can help identify root problems and provides an indication of the overall condition of your spine.

Foot Levelers:

In cases where postural problems are caused due to a misaligned spine or pelvis, we also provide custom-made functional orthotics to correct imbalances in the feet. Unlike over-the-counter foot levels, our orthotics are designed to promote whole-body wellness.

    Due to the high volume of requests, the specific time you requested may not be available, but we'll work with you to find a time that fits your schedule.
