Dr. Daryn Fanney

Chiropractor

Dr. Daryn Fanney is a board-certified chiropractor who has been in practice for 12 years. Weeks before graduating from UCF, Dr. Fanney was involved in a serious rear impact collision, where he suffered a brain injury. Getting little to non relief for his excruciating headaches from prescription medication alone, he eventually sought the care of a chiropractor who specialized in whiplash treatment. 

 

After a short period of time he made a significant turnaround and was able to get his life back. It was at this point that he decided he wanted to pursue a profession in chiropractic in order to help those who were suffering from similar conditions. He graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida in 2010.

 

After graduation he became certified in Whiplash Injury Biomechanics and Traumatology from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego (SRISD). Dr. Fanney went on to practice in a multidisciplinary whiplash and auto injury clinic in Tampa, working beside medical doctors as part of an integrated team. Dr. Fanney has since worked for many different types of chiropractic practices and employs a “best of breeds” philosophy. His motto is always to do what is best for the patient. 

Dr. Zach Monasmith

Chiropractor

Hello!

I am Dr. Monasmith, a chiropractor deeply committed to the principles of holistic health and wellness. Originating from Spokane, WA, my professional journey was inspired by an interest in sports medicine and anatomy during my high school years.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from Western Washington University, where I not only immersed myself in academic pursuits but also cultivated a passion for activities such as basketball, snowboarding, golf, and pickleball. Following my undergraduate studies, I pursued a doctorate in chiropractic at the University of Western States.

My approach to healthcare is holistic, focusing on addressing conditions like subluxation, joint dysfunction, muscle, joint, nerve, extremity, and spinal pain. It is my commitment as a chiropractor to unravel the root causes of discomfort and foster overall well-being.

As your chiropractor, I am dedicated to guiding you towards optimal health. Whether you seek recovery from an injury, management of chronic pain, or an enhancement of your overall health, I am here to support you on this journey.
