Chiropractic and physical rehabilitation-focused patients now have a new, state-of-the-art facility to undergo treatment and receive services.
The company that gives chiropractors Dr. Tim Moore and Dr. Justin Wirick recently moved west of its former location on Mentor Avenue to a newly constructed building at 39000 Mentor Ave. moved to Willoughby.
The property used to be a mini golf and batting cage recreational facility that stood empty for eight years and was demolished last summer.
Aligned Chiropractic recently opened its doors at 39000 Mentor Ave. open in Willoughby.
Moore, who lives in Willoughby, and Wirick at Pepper Pike said a growing patient base and a desire to offer a wider range of services prompted them to initiate the project.
JEMM Construction of Painesville built the 9,200 square foot structure. Aligned offices take up 7,200 square meters and the remaining 2,000 square meters at the western end of the building can be rented.
Harmoni Designs, based in Cleveland Heights, worked on the architectural design of the project.
The artist and interior designer Kate Weaver from Faux What in Mentor, who worked with the designer Tracy Baker from Design Details in Chardon, assisted with the style elements. Over the past several years, Baker and Weaver have been designers on several YMCA Dream House projects in Lake County.
The special rooms include rooms for physical rehabilitation and exercise, massage therapy, acupuncture, digital x-rays, therapy pool, stand-alone showers and doctor’s offices. A red, black and gray theme is worn throughout the modern establishment.

Technological features offer medical professionals the ability to analyze patient gait during water therapy. The background wall was designed by artist Kate Weaver from Faux What in Mentor.
In a spacious room with a high ceiling and several large windows that allow a generous flow of natural light, there are around 30 rehabilitation and training devices.
Along with the new facility, additional medical professionals were taken on board. The chiropractors Dr. David Copp, Dr. Bi Nguyen and Dr. Jennifer Ross will join Moore and Wirick.
The staff also includes physical therapists and a team of licensed massage therapists.
“We are not your standard chiropractors. We’re similar to physical therapists in that they have a powerful impact on training, ”Wirick said.
He added that the practice is due, among other things, to the personal environment and the many positive outcomes of the patients.
“It’s about taking care of your patients. We’re not a place where you pay for visits you don’t need, ”said Moore.
Services offered include chiropractic therapy and fitting, injury therapy and treatment, rehabilitation and pain management, spinal decompression therapy, sports-based therapy, pediatric chiropractic, pre- / postnatal chiropractic, massage therapy, and disability exams for workers.
According to Moore, the practice has had good success with occupational accidents, not only because of the therapy offered, but also because of the efficiency of the office staff.
“Patients really love these staff. It’s not just us who make them happy, ”he said, adding that the staff makes sure that the necessary documents are expedited.
The chiropractors were pleased with the results of what Moore describes as a “massive undertaking”.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on June 13th with the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce.
Aligned Chiropractic has another facility at 1610 W. 11th St. in Ashtabula that has been open for approximately five years.
