Uptown Somerset is ending up being a sphere of health. At least that's the wish for business owners who are operating within an approximate block of the Glades Court shopping mall.
Dr. Katelyn McDermott, a chiropractic physician, is a new addition to a company community that consists of an organic food shop and yoga and message services.
“I like the vibrant feel of it,” McDermott stated of Uptown Somerset and the series of businesses there. Her practice, Glades Pike Chiropractic, lies in Glades Court.
“It fits well with my personality,”she stated. McDermott is a 2009 North Star graduate. She made her bachelor's degree at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania and her doctorate from Life University in Marietta, Georgia.
She describes her practice as being part science, art and philosophy.
“I like to facilitate wellness,” she stated.
McDermott tries to construct strength in her clients so their spinal columns and nervous systems can stand up to the day-to-day grind of life. She can then make changes as required.
She began seeing clients throughout the pandemic in mid-March. Then she was seeing about 12 people a week, mostly clients who were in alarming situations and experiencing extreme discomfort or migraines.
Now she is seeing as much as 20 individuals a day.
“My energies are available for whatever the universe requires me to put out, “she stated. This is the very first time she has actually been the sole owner of a practice. Given that graduating from Life University in 2018, she has actually been an independent contractor. Now McDermott is enjoying charting her own course.
