Dr. Colin Denton-Pratter did not always know she wanted to start a family business. Her father knew that she would become a chiropractor in the eighth grade, but she realized that until she completed her undergraduate degree, she could pursue her diet and fitness as a chiropractor.
“I love fitness and health,” said Desta Grant, a graduate of the University of Miami.
For her top stone, Denton-Prater studied the most accurate way to measure and evaluate body composition. She believes she works in a hospital to follow her love. Her father, Dr. Max Denton, told her that as a chiropractor, she could specialize in diet and fitness.
After starting Denton-Pratter at the National University of Health Sciences, Denton encouraged his daughter to see acupuncture. Denton-Porter was not really interested, but she took it as a choice anyway. Later, she began taking additional courses over the weekend and eventually became a member of the American Board of Chiropractic Acupuncture, where she served for six years.
Denton-Pratter was not the only acupuncturist who brought her to Marion. She met her husband, Dr. Tim Prater, a director of student athletics at the National University of Health Sciences. The two became friends when Praetor organized Chiro games.
“I tricked Michigan to move to Ohio,” Denton-Porter said.
I will start working side by side with the most amazing, intelligent, beautiful and caring doctor I have ever met and I have found Dr. Max’s caretaker. If we have something complicated, we have three sets of eyes, and we all support each other, ”said Prater.
He added: “The best part of my day is to give patients a real understanding of what is being done to them.” Most patients feel pain as a major issue in their lives. How can we show them how to control their pain, their bodies, and therefore their lives? We encourage people with the least invasive and simple healthy interventions and practices that can help them live the life they want.
Denton-Pratter later became the father of her former practice, and now Denton-Porter, who owns chiropractic and natural health. Denton-Practor specializes in nutrition and acupuncture, including a healthy lifestyle, health care, and support for people with special nutritional needs. Her father still sees patients and Pratre provides care based on any injuries, but he especially enjoys working with athletes. All three provide general chiropractic care.
What is Denton-Prater’s favorite thing about being a doctor? “Helping people feel not only physically but also emotionally,” she says.
Although this is not always the case, Denton-Porter says when she sees others improving, she says she is very good.
“If I play a small role or lead a little, it is very rewarding. The amount of energy in my education makes me proud of the title, but I am just happy to have the knowledge to help people. ”
In June 2015, paratroopers launched gymnastics CrossFit and added gym owners to their titles.
“My favorite part of the gym is the community, but how does it help every member to regain their confidence by achieving goals they can’t or will not achieve on their own?”
Denton-Prater loves to see other people she loves, such as health, nutrition, and fitness. She and her husband are proud of their charitable work.
“Fitness is learning how to love yourself as you really are. And I want that person to always give and serve others, so fundraising has started as an easy way to give to people when we don’t have a ton to give to ourselves. ” Fundraisers are part of our community. To a larger community ”
