Meet Our Team
Dr. Elise Hernandez, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Elise moved to Texas and opened Vitality Family Chiropractic in Arlington, Texas in April of 2017. She grew up in Florida, and while she loved it there, she knew there was a calling beyond the Sunshine State for starting her practice and helping people to heal. On a trip to Dallas to visit her brother, she knew this was home. Dr. Elise’s passion comes from seeing life transformations. Her vision is to see less pharmacies, and more farmers markets; Less medication and more meditation; Less sick days and more family days; Less pain and more love.
Dr. Elise earned her Bachelor of Science from the University of Florida and completed her postgraduate studies at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. She is the second chiropractor in her family, and hopes that her future children will carry on that legacy! As a MaxLiving doctor in Arlington, she is certified in the 5 Essentials of Health and delivers these essentials to families in the Arlington area. She has grown one of the largest family wellness practices in the state, seeing new born babies all the way up to people in their 90’s! She leads seminars on a regular basis for local businesses and groups, helping them to achieve optimum health. She was formerly featured on The Word 100.7 FM KWRD on her show MaxLiving Radio, and is the former Official Chiropractor for the Dallas Wings WNBA Professional Basketball team.
When she isn’t spreading the message of Chiropractic, Dr. Elise loves spending time with her family, friends, and her chihuahua, Presley. She enjoys reading, traveling, and finding ways to make her favorite foods healthy!
