Joel Manion, DC, MS, CSCS, joined The Joint Chiropractic team of holistic healthcare providers in 2019 with his arrival to LG Chiropractic Group, where he serves as the Director of Operations and Chiropractic Services. A graduate of University of Florida with a bachelor’s of science in exercise physiology, Dr. Joel received his doctorate of chiropractic from Logan University College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Mo.
“The thing I love most about being in the field is the power of the chiropractic adjustment,” he says, “the ability to improve a patient’s quality of life through chiropractic care.”
In addition to his role with The Joint, Dr. Joel serves as adjunct faculty at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange. A product of Orange Park, Dr. Joel worked previously in Peoria, Ill., as well as Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach Gardens, Miami, and Jacksonville.
“I enjoy the ability to provide chiropractic care to the masses and help continue to build The Joint brand in the communities we are serving,” he says.
In his spare time, Dr. Joel enjoys watersports, working out, and spending time with friends and wife Melissa. “We met in Jacksonville while she was managing a colleague and friend’s chiropractic office,” he says. “We share the same love for the chiropractic profession.”
His chiropractic journey was sparked by a first-hand experience.
“I was in a bad car accident in 2003 and referred over to a chiropractic physician in Memphis, Tenn.,” Dr. Joel says. “It was my first interaction with a chiropractor and went into it somewhat skeptical because I didn’t know a whole lot about the profession. Once I arrived at the office and realized how professional the doctor and the staff were, it was then I quickly became much more comfortable with the choice I had made.
“I was then blown away by how diligent and detailed the chiropractor was explaining my condition to me in a way that helped me understand how chiropractic care was going to not only improve my current status, but also how continued care would improve my overall quality of life. As I continued through the prescribed therapy plan, I realized how quickly the chiropractic adjustments were improving my pain levels and improving my overall quality of life. It was then that I made the conscious decision to research and apply to chiropractic college.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
If he could bring together anyone from history to create the dinner party of his dreams, Dr. Joel would invite a group that could headline any convention of corporate CEOs. “I would include Howard Schultz because he is the genius mind behind the rapid expansion of the Starbucks brand,” he says. “Zig Ziglar because he is the original master at the art of sales. Tony Robbins because he is the ultimate speaker regarding personal persuasion and understanding self-improvement. Also, I would invite actor Gary Busey because of his prolific and crazy antics, but most importantly because of his famous one-liners in my favorite movie, Point Break.”
The coolest thing that Dr. Joel has ever done took place while he was on vacation. “I zip-lined on the longest and tallest zip line in the world over open ocean in Haiti,” he says. “What made it so cool was that I did this lying flat on my stomach traveling at speeds of up to 60 mph.”
Dr. Barry Sitkoff joined the joined the local network of holistic healthcare providers at The Joint Chiropractic in 2020. A graduate of the State University of New York at Stonybrook who earned a Bachelor of the Arts degree in English literature with a curriculum that was heavily weighted towards life sciences. "I always had a love for English literature, but also always knew that I wanted a career in the medical field so this was the best of both worlds for me." Dr. Barry got his Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College and also had extra training at ,what was then called, National Chiropractic College in Cox Flexion-Distraction technique by Dr. Cox himself.
Dr. Barry was born and raised in New York and has lived in Florida since 1998 where he has worked in West Palm Beach, Fort Myers/Cape Coral, Lakeland, Haines City, Kissimmee, and Orlando. "I feel that the diversity of my work experience gives me a great understanding of the diverse culture in the state of Florida", He says. "I love living in Florida and serving the people of Florida. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.”
As with many Chiropractors, a first-hand experience led him down the path of Chiropractic. "When I was 16 years old, I was the front seat passenger of a car that was hit head on at 70 miles per hour by a drunk driver", he remembers. I woke up in the hospital lucky to be alive but with significant injuries that included multiple cervical and lumbar disc protrusions. Nothing the doctors or neurosurgeons were doing was helping and they were even talking about possible surgery at my young age. My mother then suggested that I see my friend’s father who was a Chiropractor. I didn't know what Chiropractic was at that point, but I was willing to try anything. The rest is history, Chiropractic gave me my life back and from that point on I knew that I would become a Chiropractor.
One of his favorite memories was spending time in the Caribbean while on break from Chiropractic College. "A friend of mine let some friends and I stay at his condominium in St. Maarten. From there we were able to charter a Catamaran and visit the local islands like Anguilla, St. Barthelemy and St. Kitts. It was so interesting to see how the culture on these islands varied even though they were so close in proximity", he recalls.
When he is not working Dr. Barry is a Certified Level 2 USA archery Coach and enjoys coaching Olympic Recurve Archery at his local middle school. He also loves camping, cooking, and working on cars. “People always ask, why are you fixing the car yourself? The truth is that I enjoy doing it and it relaxes me. The results are also immediate, taking something that wasn't working and fixing it is very satisfying" , he says. Dr. Barry also enjoys spending time with his wife and his two children as well as his German Shepard named Penny.
Dr. Adele Morrison joined the local network of holistic healthcare providers at The Joint Chiropractic in February 2021. A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh who earned a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences with a dual focus in chemistry and psychology in 2014, while staying busy in various clubs including president of the Visual Arts Society and the Diversity club. After finishing her undergraduate studies, she made the decision to move to Florida to begin graduate school at Palmer College of Chiropractic, to which she earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2018. While in chiropractic school, she took many interests including president of Women in Chiropractic, class 182 representative for Palmer Student Alumni Foundation, and Nutrition club.
“What I love most about chiropractic is the body’s innate intelligence. The body wants to work at its optimum performance and our job is to remove any interference from that. I have a particular interest in healing the body holistically and avoiding harsh medications when possible.” Because of her interests in holistic healing, she went back to earn her Masters in Functional Nutrition from Logan University which was obtained December 2020. “I want to be able to help my patients in any way I can, from the inside, out.”
In her spare time, Dr. Adele loves visiting Florida beaches, shopping, dance, the Disney parks, and cycling. “It’s really Florida’s weather and entertainment scene that drew me in and keeps me here. After school, I never wanted to be away from the ocean, again.”
Dr. Adele always knew she wanted to be a doctor or something in healthcare. Having many nurses in the family, she wanted to do something a little different. She shadowed her local chiropractor in Pittsburgh, who explained what chiropractic can do and how it effects the entire body. By the age of 12, the seed was planted. It was after a bad fall on black ice in 2010 that injured the lower back and broke her collar bone that she had to visit a chiropractor on a regular basis. “The sciatica pain was so intense, I could not walk, sit, stand, or do anything without screaming pain for 12 days straight. I was on crutches just to move at all. I felt first hand what debilitating pain can be like and the power of adjustment bringing me back to 100%.”
