Dr. Martin K Blankenship DC - Principle Chiropractic Physician/Director Dr Martin was first inspired to become a chiropractor when a snowboarding injury during college rendered him unable to run without pain. This was devastating as Dr Martin was, and is a very active, healthy individual. After having an MRI and being told that there was nothing wrong with the tissues, the given prognosis was to give it time and it would get better. Nine months of not being able to run without pain was taking its toll on him. It was at this time that his sister dragged him down to the chiropractor where he learned that the problem was not an anatomical problem but a functional problem. It was very clear to the chiropractor what was wrong and after one chiropractic adjustment, he was able to run across the parking lot without pain. That was the inspiration for him to become a chiropractor over 20 years ago. He has been adjusting and educating patients on the benefits of chiropractic care ever since. Dr Martin attended both Life Chiropractic College and Life Chiropractic College West, graduating from the latter in 1995. It was then that he commenced practice in Florida and several countries across the world. From Florida to England to Northern Ireland to Australia and finally back home to stay in beautiful Saint Petersburg. In the over 20 years that Dr. Martin has been a Chiropractic Physician he has dedicated his life and work to adjusting as many families as possible toward optimal health and improving their lives through the process. Dr Martin also speaks English and a tiny bit of Spanish in an attempt to better communicate with his patients. Dr. Kaysie Blankenship-Powers DC - Chiropractic Nutritionist Dr Kaysie was born in West Virginia and moved to Florida as an infant. She was raised in Tampa and graduated from Chamberlain High School. While attending University of Florida and graduating in 1987, she learned about chiropractic from her father, who is a medical doctor in the area. Kaysie then attended Life Chiropractic College in Marietta George. She has always had an interest in nutrition, especially after severely breaking her ankle and realizing that it would only heal properly if the right supplements were available. She practiced nutrition and chiropractic in Jacksonville, Florida for about 15 years. She is now bringing her passion for nutrition and health to Pinellas at Family Chiropractic Plus. Dr Kaysie uses advice and different supplemental products to cater to patient's specific needs. Only proven and well researched supplements are recommended by Dr Kaysie. Juice Plus products and the Standard Process line fill these requirements admirably.
