Meet The Doctors
Dr. Jasmine Craner
I was first introduced to chiropractic in the spring of my freshmen year at Archbishop McNicholas High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, while running track, playing Junior Olympic volleyball, and dancing. Pushing through the pain I was experiencing in my lower back, I realized it was becoming increasingly difficult to walk or bend forward without using my hands for support.
After my family doctor told me I would have to stop running, my coach suggested chiropractic care. Not ready to cease any of the activities I loved, I took his advice and am so thankful that I did. Not only did my chiropractor relieve my pain and get me back to full function, he took the time to explain what was happening and why. He also gave me stretches and exercises that would help me continue living my active lifestyle.

Born and raised in St. Cloud, MN, I have always been a very active guy. When I wasn’t playing sports, I was in the woods or on one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes.
I received a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Chemistry minor from the University of Minnesota Duluth. After completing my undergraduate degree, I still wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do so I accepted a full-time position with the Longshoreman’s Union. Over the summers of my undergrad I worked there unloading ships, so taking a full-time position was a simple transition. However, the longer hours really took a toll on me. Back pain and headaches began affecting both my work and sleep habits.
My roommate’s dad was a chiropractor and suggested that I get adjusted.
Dr. Monisha K. Mallik
I was first exposed to Chiropractic Medicine when I accompanied my mom to her appointment where she was being treated for low back pain. I distinctly remember her being in pain prior to the appointment, but after 10 minutes with the doctor, she hopped off the table and walked out of the office pain free. I remained in the doctors office and said, “I need to know exactly what you did.”
This first encounter was my inspiration for pursuing chiropractic, but my personal experience with competitive dancing really formed my focus and approach to patient care. I find that taking a full body approach to care, incorporating both functional intervention and mechanical rehabilitation provides the greatest relief and results for individuals I work with.
