Dr. Ericka Montelione always knew that her passion was to serve others. Throughout her childhood she always participated in community church events, and found a passion for helping people. She battled over the decision of what she wanted to do for a profession for some time but after meeting her husband in undergraduate school she realized that chiropractic was a way to help people of all ages using her hands, and avoiding the usage of medication and surgery. This was an amazing concept!
When she was a child she was very sick with allergies and asthma. Medication and injections were always the treatment administered for 12+ years, but health was never achieved. After beginning care in Chiropractic College the allergies and asthma melted away. For that case illness is a rarity. Because of her own experience with chiropractic and a passion for children she is in the process of receiving her ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association) CACCP pediatric certification, a 180 hour course tied in with research and a final examination. She also recently attended a mission’s trip with Dr. Mike to the Dominican Republic through Chiromission to give chiropractic care to those less fortunate. This experience amped her passion for the greatness of chiropractic and the desire to serve people holistically and naturally even more!
Dr. Ericka grew up in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania; Montrose. She was an only child and participated in cheerleading and choir throughout school. After she met and married Mike in undergraduate she attended the New York Chiropractic College with him in the finger lakes New York region. She is now serving her community in chiropractic and wellness. She frequently does health talks in the community and continues to work on her pediatric certification. In her spare time you will find her working out, running, crafting, and hiking with Dr. Mike and her two best buddies, Daisy and Tiger Lily.
Dr. Michael Montelione will always say, “I didn’t choose chiropractic, chiropractic chose me”. Whenever anyone would ask Mike as a child what he wanted to be when he grew up he would always reply, “Chiropractor”. It was always an easy question to answer! Dr. Mike was immersed in chiropractic from birth as his uncle (a fellow chiropractor) would adjust him on a regular basis to make sure his nervous system was working at its greatest potential. Still to this day Dr. Mike makes sure he gets his spine and nervous system checked for subluxations every week.
Dr. Mike grew up in the small town of Greene New York and is one of five siblings. He attended prerequisite courses in Binghamton, NY where he met his wonderful wife and best friend Dr. Ericka. Finally after years of anticipation he began his education with his new wife at New York Chiropractic College in the finger lakes region of upstate New York. When Dr. Mike is not serving his community with chiropractic care he can be found working out, reading, hunting, or hiking with his wife and two dogs Daisy and Tiger Lily.
HANNAH RAINE - CHIROPRACTIC ASSISTANT
As an active 20 year old individual, seeking Chiropractic Care never crossed my mind. I played 3 sports throughout high school, competed in pageantry, and ate very healthy. To myself, I seemed like a perfectly healthy individual. In reality, I had no idea what was really going on in my body and the problems that I could have faced in the future, had I not been blessed with the job opportunity here at Premier Chiropractic.
Growing up, I suffered from severe allergies and asthma. I received allergy shots 2 times a week for 3 years and had my inhaler handy everywhere I went. When I was 12 years old, I underwent Balloon Sinuplasty surgery in hopes of curing my ongoing sinus infections. It didn’t take long before the local pharmacy knew my parents on a first name basis. I wish my parents and I had been informed and educated of the benefits of neurologically based chiropractic care.
Unfortunately, we don’t think of our nervous system on a daily basis. I had never received a chiropractic adjustment a day in my life, until I began my journey here at Premier Chiropractic. I am so thankful that God blessed me with an amazing job opportunity that not only is going to help make me a healthier person, but will allow me to help others achieve an optimal level of health as well!
Aside from assisting Dr. Michael and Dr. Ericka on the mission to truly create a healthier community and healthier generation, my all time favorite job is being a wife to my wonderful husband, Beau. Recently married in May of 2015, We enjoy camping, fishing, traveling, and picking old barns for antiques. Together, we have started a small weekend based business that sparked from our hobby of upcycling antiques and old furniture. We have found a passion in repurposing in things most people would consider “junk”. In the warmer months, we also enjoy participating in local rodeos, as my husband is a bronc rider.
"The mission of Premier Chiropractic is to serve as many families as possible with principled chiropractic care aiming to improve the life and well-being to truly create a healthier community and healthier generation"
