With intriguing topics such as the effect of stress in the workplace to managing your wellness, or the connection between spine health and overall health, Dr. Nick Bigrigg, owner of Aligned Health Center in Westlake and Beachwood, has been reaching out to the community with insightful talks.

“Since opening three years ago, I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to all sorts of organizations, from neighborhood book clubs of several ladies, to groups of 300-plus people at Quicken Loans,” he says.

Dr. Nick is passionate about wellness and never charges a speaker’s fee.

The talks include “Lunch & Learn,” “Dinner with the Doc,” and “Wine & Spine.” Whether at a place of business, a home, or a local venue, Aligned Health Center provides a free meal to all attendees.

“We tailor the entire program to what each group wants,” says Maria Jeancola, director of business development. Employers enjoy offering the no-cost, no obligation wellness initiative that includes a meal for their employees. Maria states that the Lunch & Learn talks are popular with businesses.

“Providing an informative and entertaining wellness talk along with lunch to your employees shows them you care,” says Maria. “And, it won’t cost you a thing.”


Ann E., of Westlake, attended one of Dr. Nick’s talks at her accounting firm in 2015.

This 40-something migraine sufferer had tried everything for relief, from anti-inflammatory medications to physical therapy and shots in the neck. Nothing had worked. 

“So it was perfect timing that Dr. Nick would give this seminar,” she recalls. “Though I was skeptical at first, after a few treatments the daily headaches began to diminish, and now they are nearly non-existent. I’m more productive at work, and finally have the energy to do other activities.”
