A decade after Dr. Josh Mason started his one-provider chiropractic practice in the industrial building at the crossway of Second Avenue North and North 15th Street, Active Health Chiropractic has seen a great deal of growth and change.
Six months after opening in October 2010, Mason was joined by his sibling, Dr. Zach Mason, who is likewise a doctor of chiropractic. Since then, the Masons have actually included 2 more chiropractic practitioners, an athletic trainer and a nurse professional. The practice also moved from its initial area to its present area at 20 N. 29th St. In 2019, the practice re-branded as Active Health Clinics.
“It's going beyond expectations,” Josh Mason stated of his initial vision for Active Health. “When we first opened, our vision was to assist as lots of people as possible, however the scale of which we've had the ability to do that has certainly altered.”
In an average month, Active Health has 2,500 gos to, he said.
Josh Mason initially chose to pursue a career in chiropractic “on an impulse” after his then-girlfriend (now other half) recommended it the summer season after he graduated high school.
Zach Mason, on the other hand, had a far more individual factor for ending up being a chiropractic doctor. He had an old sports injury and the medical treatment he was receiving was simply covering the symptoms and not in fact resolving the issue itself. It was once he started to see a chiropractic doctor that he started seeing progress.
“I wanted to enter into more avoidance and upkeep rather than reactive care, so that's what attracted me to chiropractic,” he stated.
For the past 10 years, the 2 brothers have been running Active Health together as a group.
“We have a common approach of how things ought to be done, we share a philosophy on how to take care of clients,” Josh Mason said.
Zach Mason added that he believes the two balance well and promote growth in others working at the practice.
“We both are hard employees and we normally work by example,” he stated.
Both siblings look forward to commemorating Active Health's 20th anniversary 10 years from now, hoping that the practice has grown a lot more.
“In 10 years, we want to possibly broaden this area,” Josh Mason said. “We have a vision of developing complementary centers within the region and we home to continue being a household organization.”
Zach Mason credits the clinic's clients and the people of Fort Dodge for the success of Active Health Clinics.
“I simply wish to thank the community,” he said. “It was a huge plus for us to be able to come back house and serve the neighborhood.”
