Achieving Excellence: Reflecting on Our Journey




In 2014, I took a leap of faith and assumed the leadership of this clinic with a clear vision: to establish the very best chiropractic clinic in our mountain community. Over the years, we have tirelessly worked towards this goal, continually striving to enhance the quality of care we provide. Today, I am proud to say that with the addition of Dr. Michael Macri and Dr. Nichole Geary, we have truly accomplished this mission.


The Evolution of Our Clinic

When I first took over Evergreen Spine & Sports Medicine, my aim was to create a space where patients could receive comprehensive, patient-centered care, tailored to their individual needs. We wanted to integrate the best practices in chiropractic care with a deep understanding of each patient's unique circumstances. Over the years, we have built a team that embodies these values, and the addition of Dr. Macri and Dr. Geary has been pivotal in this journey.


Celebrating Dr. Michael Macri

Dr. Michael Macri joined our team with a wealth of knowledge and a diverse background in chiropractic care. His impressive credentials include:

  • Doctorate of Chiropractic from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon

  • Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from the University of Western States

  • Bachelor of Science in Biology from Syracuse University, focusing on Pre-Med and Evolution and Ecology

  • Board Certified Chiropractic Acupuncturist


Dr. Macri's specialization in chiropractic manipulation, dry needling, and Western Medical Acupuncture (WMA) has significantly enriched our clinic's offerings. He holds certifications in several advanced techniques, including Active Release Technique (ART™), RockTape Functional Movement Taping, and RockTape Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM).


His extensive background in pain science, proprioception, the nervous system, and functional medicine and nutrition is complemented by his experience as a lecturer. Completing a clerkship at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada, during his doctoral studies at the University of Western States, Dr. Macri brings evidence-informed practices to our clinic.


Dr. Macri's personal passion for outdoor sports and mountain activities, including skiing and mountain biking, has also influenced his professional journey. His own experiences with injuries inspired him to pursue a career in chiropractic care, with a focus on helping patients achieve pain relief and regain their active lifestyles. His commitment to providing thorough treatment by identifying and addressing the root causes of neuromusculoskeletal and biomechanical issues has been instrumental in our clinic's success.


Celebrating Dr. Nichole Geary

Dr. Nichole Geary's arrival marked another milestone in our clinic's evolution. With a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Northeast College of Health Sciences, she brought a unique perspective shaped by her diverse background. Her journey began with a Bachelor of Arts in Dance and English from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 2011. This early career in professional dance and yoga instruction deepened her understanding of the human body and sparked her interest in chiropractic care.


Dr. Geary is a licensed Chiropractic Acupuncturist, trained in needling techniques at prestigious institutions such as McMaster University, Evidence in Motion (EIM), and the American Academy of Manipulative Therapy (AAMT). She has furthered her expertise through Functional Neurology Seminars (FNS), gaining a deeper understanding of the central circuitry guiding our sensations, movement, and perceptions.


Her holistic approach to treatment, viewing the body as an interconnected system, has been transformative for our patients. Dr. Geary excels at identifying pain patterns and functional limitations, creating tailored treatment plans based on patient presentation, evidence-based practices, and her clinical experience. Whether her patients aim to excel in triathlons or simply wish to move without pain, Dr. Geary's dedication to finding the most suitable treatments has made a significant impact.


Outside of her professional life, Dr. Geary's passion for human connections, achieving goals, dynamic movement, reading, exploring new places, and continuous learning aligns perfectly with our clinic's values.


A Vision Realized

Reflecting on our journey since 2014, I am filled with pride and gratitude. The addition of Dr. Macri and Dr. Geary has been crucial in realizing the vision I had for our clinic. Their expertise, dedication, and holistic approach to patient care have elevated our clinic to new heights.


Our commitment to providing the best chiropractic care in the mountain community remains unwavering. Together, we continue to strive for excellence, ensuring that our patients receive the highest quality care possible.


Thank you for being part of our journey.
