Dr. Will Adams

Dr. Adams co-founded Miami Spine and Performance in order to bring an integrative, patient-centered approach to the greater Aventura community. Dr. Adams has been a part of the Aventura/Hallandale beach community for over 20 years, spending a couple of months per year in the area while going to school in Chicago. After dealing with a number of injuries as a high school athlete and finding significant relief with the help of chiropractic care, Dr. Adams went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology from the University of Miami as well as a doctoral degree in chiropractic medicine from National University of Health Sciences, graduating at the top of his class from both schools.

During his time at the University of Miami, Dr. Adams worked with a variety of varsity sports as a strength and conditioning intern and took graduate level course work in sports performance while working as a personal trainer and interning at Crossfit Soul Miami. During his summers in college, Dr. Adams was selected as a sports performance intern at Stanford and Harvard University, working with hundreds of division 1 athletes across multiple over 30 sports. Having a background in sports performance, over 500 hours of continuing education and great mentors throughout his undergraduate and graduate education allows Dr. Adams to treat a wide spectrum of patients looking to get out of pain, improve their health and perform at their best.

Dr. Adams is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Kinesiology from the University of Miami and in his free time enjoys martial arts, weightlifting, reading and playing the piano.

“The ability to move your body freely and be active is one of the most important markers of overall health. We believe that everyone deserves a fruitful and active life, which is why every patient will get a thorough full body assessment as well as a thorough explanation as to the nature of their condition and the their specific road to recovery. It is crucial in healthcare that the patient feels educated  and empowered during a time of stress such as an injury and this is why we have created Miami Spine and Performance.”

Dr. Ivette Mendez

Dr. Mendez co-founded Miami Spine and Performance with a vision to build a clinic dedicated to providing patients with a comprehensive and personalized
approach to care.

The sunny weather and the diverse culture of Florida drew Dr. Mendez to Miami. As a child, Dr. Mendez’s mother was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. This health challenge sparked a lifelong passion for Chiropractic Medicine and lead Dr. Mendez to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and a doctoral degree in Chiropractic Medicine from National University of Health Sciences.

At UIC, Dr. Mendez assisted with research concerning the impact of physical activity on the brain health of Latinos and participated in multiple on-campus organizations that promoted preventative care in the Latino community.

During her doctoral education, Dr. Mendez spent a year in the Functional Medicine branch of a multidisciplinary clinic in downtown Chicago where she spent over 1000+ hours with patients learning Functional Medicine. In addition, Dr Mendez attended over 500+ hours of advanced post graduate coursework in musculoskeletal medicine, acupuncture, functional medicine, and clinical nutrition. One on one clinical experiences with patients, incredible mentors, and countless hours of continuing education have prepared Dr. Mendez to tackle a wide variety of health concerns.

In her spare time, Dr. Mendez enjoys spending time with family and friends, trying new fitness classes, exploring new restaurants, and taking her two pups out for
walks. She is thrilled to be part of the greater Hallandale Beach community and eager to help patients achieve their health goals!

“I aspire to provide patients with care that will support them in the achievement of their goals for physical and mental well being by working with the most powerful systems of the body to restore health. Utilizing a holistic approach to healthcare allows me to assess and manage a variety of conditions using integrative therapeutic practices that highlight the vast benefits of Functional Medicine and Chiropractic Medicine.”
