Dr. Alison Day
Dr. Alison was born in California and lived there until her teenage years when she moved to Pennsylvania. She received her bachelors of science at Monmouth University in New Jersey. Dr. Alison was scouted and received a track scholarship from Monmouth where she was a four-year D1 athlete. It was then when she decided that she wanted to take care of athletes since she received much support from her team chiropractor allowing her to be so successful in her sport. She completed her masters in sports chiropractic simultaneously with her doctor of chiropractic degree at Life University and graduated cum laude. While at Life she worked with national championship athletes as one of the team chiropractors for the athletics program. She works closely with our pregnant mothers and pediatric population, and is Webster Certified and is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).
Dr. Alison was raised with 3 older brothers and loves to spend time with family as much as possible. Her passion towards chiropractic grew stronger due to this close tie to her family. She wanted to provide the best care for them which motivated her to gain experience that would benefit them in any way. She has 3 nieces with more on the way, which has inspired her love of pediatrics and adjusting babies to allow their nervous system to be fully functioning to give them the best start in life.
She has been involved in MaxLiving through chiropractic school. While working with different Maximized Living offices in school, Dr. Alison was able to see first-hand the life transformations people were experiencing through the 5 Essentials. It was then that she grew a passion to educate the community on the truth on the body’s amazing ability to heal and improve function. She has taught at several corporations, businesses, and churches on varying health topics such as cancer prevention, brain health, stress reduction, nutrition, and many others. She has been trained in nutrition, advanced spinal correction, detoxification, and exercise.
Our staff members work with our doctors every day to provide our patients with a professional and friendly experience.

Kayla grew up in Indiana her whole life. She graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a community health education degree. Before working at a MaxLiving Health Center she thought that health was more about how you feel on the inside rather than function. Since she started she has learned so much about the nervous system and how it’s all about functioning at 100% and not about feeling healthy. Kayla enjoys helping others reach their health goals and seeing their success with integrating the 5 essentials! In her free time she likes to go hiking and hangout with my husband and their 2 year-old dachshund!
