Chiropractor Bill Jensen D.C.

At the age of 9, Dr. Jensen was already actively involved with soccer, basketball, baseball, karate and amateur wrestling. While wrestling one day against a friend in practice he sustained a severe neck injury that left him temporarily paralyzed from the neck down. After a few anxious moments he slowly regained feeling in his arms and legs and it seemed that everything was fine, with the exception of a sore neck. Days later however, he began to have severe migraine headaches with any type of physical activity. Any type of activity would trigger a headache, followed by 8-10 hours of agonizing pain, nausea, and vomiting until the headache would pass.

At the advice of a family friend Dr. Jensen was taken to the local chiropractor for an evaluation. He was told he had a subluxation (bone out of its normal alignment) on the upper right side of his neck
which was pinching a nerve and causing the headaches. So he began
treatment, and within 3 chiropractic adjustments the headaches were gone.

It was three years before Dr. Jensen had another migraine, he and his family never thought it could be the result of the prior neck injury. When the only relief came from his father massaging his neck they knew something was wrong in the same area the injury had occurred. Living in a new town they visited a new chiropractor and found a subluxation in the same area as before, it had just not had been bad enough to cause the previous symptoms since his body had adapted to the misalignment. This chiropractor was different, he taught Dr. Jensen and his family the importance of correcting the problem and getting the symptoms under control, but also the value of supportive care and its role in sustaining health.

In high school Dr. Jensen used chiropractic care not only to prevent migraines but also to help prevent and aid in sports injuries. With his largely gained admiration of the chiropractic field it became clear to Dr. Jensen that he wanted to make a career of bringing people the same relief and success he had. He enrolled at the University of Minnesota followed by Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. In December of 2000, Dr. Jensen graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelors of Science in Human Biology.

In June of 2001, Dr. Jensen made the move to sunny South Florida and began working at County Line Chiropractic Centers. Over the past 12 years, Dr. Jensen has helped thousands of people regain and maintain their health through his care. He has helped open and develop two successful practices in South Florida, has opened a third office in the Tradition Township in Port. Saint Lucie, a fourth east Port Saint Lucie on US Highway 1, and now a fifth office in Stuart. He has a background in the diagnosis and treatment of sports, auto and work related injuries and has authored several articles on treatment protocols for pediatric patients. His purpose in life is to teach people that good health is the door to improving every aspect of one’s life, and holistic health care is the key.

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

Julia Cairns-Migone - RD, LDN, CPT

Born and raised in the south of England, it was not until her twenties that Julia Cairns-Migone decided to pursue Nutrition as a career. Her interest in food began in her early teen years, sparked by vegetarianism, which was the alternative thing at the time.  Needless to say, it wasn't too long before she needed to figure out some creative ways to make meatless meal times more satisfying.  She thanks her parents for their appreciation of fresh, home cooked foods, and for exposing her pallet to unfamiliar tastes from around the world, for a lot of her early inspiration.

Julia initiated a full time degree at the University of North London, and then transitioned to Kings College London. In 1999, after the birth of her second child, Julia and her family moved to the United States, and then to Florida, where she's resided since 2002.

In 2010, after years of dabbling in the fitness industry, Julia chose to pursue her personal training certification. She has been actively sharing her knowledge of physical fitness and nutrition with her clients in both the gym and private environments ever since.  Simultaneously during these past few years, she has worked in the weight loss business as a consultant, and she graduated with her Nutrition and Dietetics Bachelor of Science degree, including a full time clinical internship, from Keiser University.

Julia was compelled to complete her studies after all these years primarily because of a devastating loss of a loved one.  The ordeal reawakened a deep longing to gain more knowledge in the field of healing nutrition, so that she would be better equipped to help others who face health issues. The power of food is vastly misunderstood. Julia's quest is to educate and streamline the subject of nutrition to individuals, and to empower people to attain lifestyle changes so as to enjoy optimal good health.
