Chronic Pain Clear Lake WA Sarah Kotlerman

Dr. Sarah L Kotlerman

Dr. Kotlerman got her professional start into holistic healthcare as a Nutritional Therapy practitioner. She started a successful business based on foundational nutritional testing for patients with a variety of health challenges. However, not all patients got the wanted results through better nutrition alone, though they responded positively with change in the right direction, their positive results would not maintain leading to eventually falling back into self-harming patterns of behavior.

Dr. Kotlerman knew that if she wanted to help patients in a more sustainable way that she would need to be able to affect changes to the patient’s brain and neurology. Dr. Kotlerman then enrolled at Life West Chiropractic College and graduated four years later with her D.C and many clinical honors. Dr. Kotlerman is known for coining the term “Test, Not Guess” and her philosophy is that the patient has the right to know why breakdown or abnormality is likely causing their symptoms. It is through honest healthcare and medical guidance that Americans can regain sustainable health, one person at a time.

Chiropractor in Clear Lake Avery Martin

Dr. Avery N Martin

Dr. Martin has been practicing for over 40 years. Dr. Martin has run and managed many successful multi-disciplinary clinics and facilities throughout the years and shares a wealth of clinical knowledge. It was about ten years ago that Dr. Martin realized that patients were not responding to care in the same way they were in the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s. Patients with the same amount of damage and disease were requiring more and more treatment to get sustainable results.

This is when Dr. Martin began to conceptualize a facility where the limits would be removed and patients would be treated with as much care as needed to start to facilitate a change in their body, brain, chemistry and often…in their results. This was the beginning of Averio Health Institute, a cutting-edge facility that uses functional neurology, photobiomodulation, brain retraining and a myriad of holistic treatments and therapies to stimulate tissue change and function change even in the most challenging cases. Averio Health Institute is a facility of more; more testing, more care, more treatments…and for many this also means more results.
