Meet The Doctors
Dr. Jade Malay, D.C.
Dr. Jade Malay, D.C., is the founder of Apex Physical Medicine and has practiced in the Dallas area since 1992. Her foundational specialty is chiropractic care – which includes neck, back and sciatica pain. The range of specialties is broad, but connected. The root of each condition ranges from lifestyle choices to diet, work, lifestyle, or environment. She finds and treats the cause of problems, not merely the symptoms.
She also leads her industry in a non-invasive treatment for lower back, neck and sciatica pain caused by bulging or herniated discs. For true non-surgical decompression, she uses the DRX 9000 and DRX 9000C, new technologies for gentle, yet effective, results.
Using technology to improve quality of life extends to other areas of her practice as well. She and the medical staff are experienced in the use of lasers for muscle, joint pain, and the burning skin sensation or tingling of neuropathy. She is certified from Bridgeport University in the following areas: mastering functional blood chemistry, functional blood chemistry analysis, and mastering the thyroid. She is experienced in the area of clinical nutrition as it applies to various metabolic issues and its affects on the muskuloskeletal system and the body as a whole.
