Dr. Kristi Farrell, Chiropractor
Founder of Back to Health Physical Medicine, Dr. Kristi Farrell is a Dallas chiropractor who serves both Dallas and the surrounding areas in Texas including Highland Park, University Park, Richardson, Garland, and Plano.
Dr. Farrell has always had a passion for chiropractic. At age nine she was diagnosed with Scoliosis. Her doctors advised surgery, but her parents sought a better option and took her to a chiropractor. Chiropractic care corrected her scoliosis, and she avoided surgery and braces.

Currently, Dr. Farrell has a family practice and treats hundreds of satisfied patients, and because of her commitment to them and their health, she has a thriving Dallas based business.
Dr. Farrell seeks to improve her chiropractic patients' health and wellness in all areas of their lives. Dr. Farrell likes to treat the "whole person" in her work as a chiropractor, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, which usually arise from imbalances in the spinal column. Under Dr. Farrell's supervision and care, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
Dr. Milad Faghihifar, Chiropractor
Dr. Milad Faghihifar grew up in east Carrollton, TX and received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of North Texas. During his freshmen year of college, he suffered a back injury in the gym. The injury was debilitating making it impossible for him to get out of a chair, bed, or dress without assistance. While visiting an orthopedic surgeon, an MRI showed two herniated lumbar discs, one 4mm the other 7mm. He was prescribed pain medication and NSAIDs to help deal with pain but no further treatment. Previously very active, his life became limited as he could no longer exercise or play sports due to ongoing discomfort. A year later, he was at work when half his body went numb, and he lost consciousness. A neurologist discovered that the NSAIDs induced a mini-stroke, and was lucky not to have any permanent damage.
After the mini-stroke, he decided he was finished living in pain and taking medication and was referred to a chiropractor by the neurologist. After six weeks of care, he was doing things the medical doctors said he would never be able to do again. It was then that he knew he wanted to be a chiropractor. He completed his undergraduate studies and attended Parker College of Chiropractic of Dallas. It is there that he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Dr. Milad has a passion for fitness and helping others reach their goals to function at their best as athletes and competitors. His Chiropractic reach goes beyond just pain patients but includes treating patients by means of adjusting the body, counseling on supplements/diet that meet their specific needs.
