Owner of the firm, Dr. Tye Bratvold, has been in the profession for over 20 years and believes that, while important, premier chiropractic care is more than just providing spinal alignments. “We are focused on the whole body: nutrition, exercise, mindset, toxins, sleep,” says Tye. “We care about it all.”
He chose Momentum as the new name because it is defined as “the quantity of motion of a moving body” and “the impetus gained by a moving object.” Both definitions speak to the ultimate goal of the firm—to center care plans and partnerships around the whole body—not just the spine.
Unique to his firm, Dr. Tye also holds educational events to educate and explain Momentum’s philosophy and the importance of whole body care as it relates to chiropractic care.
At the age of seventeen, Chiropractic care found and fixed what traditional medicine could not for Angelena. From that day forward, her passion to help people through Chiropractic was born, and off to medical school she went. The more she learned, the more she knew that chiropractic care was what she wanted to do. Angelena loves being able to work in a field where patients are consistently saying to her, "It's a miracle! I can't believe it!" ...because she knows exactly what they're talking about! While the field of medicine is diagnostic and involves investigation, analysis, and problem solving, when the business day ends, she finds refreshment in creativity. She loves being knee-deep in design, where imagination rules, the vision is your road map and originality shines. Happy, healthy and joyfully serving others is what Angelena is all about!

Wendi has always had a passion for fitness, using it to enhance her life with a holistic approach. She grew up playing various sports, and as an adult chased an adrenaline rush staying active with cycling, kick boxing, sky diving- you name it! Ten years ago, Wendi noticed her hands and fingers going numb during activities, putting limitations on work and activities she enjoyed. Her husband, who received chiropractic care throughout his military career, suggested she see a local chiropractor. Reluctantly, she scheduled an appointment at Momentum and learned she had a limited nerve supply in her arms and hands due to a loss of curve in her neck. Determined to be the healthiest version of herself, she started care with Dr. Tye and the Momentum team. At Momentum, you quickly learn how powerful and important it is to have a healthy nervous system. The experience was life changing, and something she knew she could not keep to herself. She is passionate about sharing the body’s natural ability to heal itself through removing interference. She loves helping people through education, motivation and accountability.
