Dr. Jennifer Walker at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine

Dr. Walker

Chief Executive Officer & Chiropractor

Dr. Jennifer Walker is the founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Chiropractic Physician for Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine. Dr. Walker started the practice 2006 with a vision to radically change how people view healthcare. Her mission is, and always has been, to show patients how they can take an active and proactive approach to their health.

Dr. Walker started her career as an Exercise Physiologist in a chiropractic and medical clinic. Through that early experience she learned that even at a young age she was already showing signs of spinal degeneration in her neck. She also discovered that chiropractic care helped to relieve pain from severe ear infections. Throughout these experiences, she was inspired to help others avoid surgery and drugs and live better with the help of chiropractic care. This time in her life was the inspiration to become a chiropractor.

Dr. Walker earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Western States Chiropractic College in 2001. She continues to grow and evolve the practice at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine to bring the best healthcare options to her patients and the Roanoke Valley.

Olivia Ferguson at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine

Olivia Ferguson

Physician Assistant

Olivia Ferguson serves as the Physician Assistant at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine. Olivia will perform an exam during your first visit, including a functional movement screen (FMS) to assess muscle/joint mobility and strength, to develop a baseline and better guide your specific rehab plan based on your individual needs. Olivia’s specialties include administering trigger point injections (TPIs) in various tight muscles, utilizing platelet rich plasma and/or allograft tissue injections into inflamed or irritated joints or tendon sheaths to promote healing.

Olivia has a passion for developing relationships with patients and seeing how their lives are transformed by the care provided. “When patients come in my office saying they ‘haven’t felt this good in (insert time period- days, months, years),’ THAT is why I do what I do.”

Olivia’s top three most proud moments to date are 1) being the four-year starting catcher for a division two collegiate softball team, 2) graduating from PA school, and 3) obtaining a first job out of graduate school working as a Surgical First Assist in Orthopedics with a subspecialty in Sports Medicine. Her overall goal in life is to continually improve on placing others’ needs before her own and to maintain a positive, uplifting mindset. When not at work, you can find Olivia either training or coaching at Big Lick CrossFit, playing with her three fur children, (Copper, Miner, and Barkley), reading (shout out to Harry Potter), practicing guitar, hanging out with family and friends, or traveling (when it’s safe of course)!
