about developing relationships with every patient that walks through the door and providing them with quality care.

We are a full team of medical professionals working together under one roof and with one mission – to provide innovative, non-surgical, non-opioid treatments to help get people out of pain as soon as possible and back to the things they love.

Our main focus is providing patients with compassionate care, while also doing anything we can to improve the community around us. While the healthcare industry continues to change, the level of care at Synergy Health will always remain the same.

By having a physical therapist, a medical professional, a massage therapist, a chiropractor along with other professionals all in one place, she feels confident in coming up with a unique solution for each individual patient no matter what the problem is.

Justin Ahasic

Justin Ahasic

Golf Professional

As an accomplished professional golfer, Justin set out to establish Synergy Golf so he could help people find the swing that works the best for their body. While on tour, he had the privilege of playing with hundreds of golfers and one thing he noticed about each of their swings is that not one of them were the same.
Even when it came to the best golfers in the world, Justin had a hard time figuring out what they were doing that he wasn’t. Finally, it came to him – they were embracing their natural swing.

This is why Justin focuses on helping people find their signature swing that feels the most natural to them. He also works with a team of health and fitness experts to help people build strength and flexibility, so they can reach their full potential.
