BLACKFOOT — Advanced Integrated Medical and Chiropractic has moved to a new location in Blackfoot which triples the space they had in their previous location
The center moved to 1395 NW Main St. the first part of November, located between Herrick Floor Coverings and Bob’s Sheet Metal. They had been located in the office plaza behind Walmart for five years.
The move takes the center’s space from 1,200 square feet to 3,600 square feet, according to Brittney Wright, office manager.

Medical director Kenneth Lowther, a nurse practitioner, brings his clinical experience to administer injections including hyaluronic acid, lidocaine, and trigger point injections to help with pain management. The team also offers intravenous therapy and stem cell therapy to support tissue healing and regeneration.

Massage therapist Kirsten Fairbanks has over 10 years of experience, dealing with pain management with pain patterns and solutions, deep tissue massage, prenatal massages, and Swedish massage. She works in specific areas as well as basic massage for relaxation.
“We find out if things we offer would work for that particular patient, and we offer the different types of injections,” Wright said.
