Spotlight: Aligned Health Center
Join us as we talk with Aligned Health Center about their start as a chiropractic service and the owner’s legacy of local family-owned Cleveland small businesses!
How did your business get its start?
The owner of Aligned Health Center, Dr. Nicholas Bigrigg, is a walking testimonial of the success of Chiropractic Biophysics. Following his undergraduate training at Kent State University, Dr. Nick competed in various indoor professional football leagues. It was during this time that he suffered an incapacitating injury to his low back. He was told that the injury would require surgery in order to sustain a reasonable quality of life and that he would no longer be able to work as an athlete. Dr. Nick sought a second opinion and met a chiropractor who addressed the structure of his low back. Through this treatment not only did he avoid surgery and maintain a high quality of life but he returned to the field for one more season. Throughout his care, Dr. Nick began to see other positive changes to his overall health leading him to explore the full benefits of chiropractic care. It was this experience and the desire to share it with others that lead Dr. Nick to pursue a chiropractic career.

What does keep it local mean to you and your business?
I am from Cleveland and I come from a long line of small businesses in my family. I understand and appreciate the importance of supporting local businesses. My dad’s side of the family had an Italian meat market and corner store for 50+ years and before that, a coal company. My mom’s side of the family still operates a small auto/radiator shop on the west side and also had a scuba diving shop for many years.
Are there any other details about your company that you want everyone to know about?
Through Keep It Local Cleveland, I would like to connect with other business members to coordinate Lunch & Learn presentations for their employees. Lunch is on us and will be catered by another KILP member!
