Partner Spotlight: Kaizo Health
By: Tiffany Anzalone McCasland
This week, we caught up with Lucas Braga, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Director of Strategic Partnerships at Kaizo Health, a local chiropractic and rehabilitation practice with 5 locations around the DC area, to learn about Kaizo’s research-based approach and how MightyMeals fits seamlessly into into their treatment plans.
How did Kaizo Health get its start?
Lucas: Kaizo Health was started 25 years ago at our Rockville office by our CEO, Dr. Jay Greenstein, who combines physical aspects of rehab and chiropractic medicine. Kaizo Health provides state of the art comprehensive care by combining chiropractic, physical therapy, rehabilitation and patient education to eliminate symptoms, restore full function and promote a healthy lifestyle. Our highly qualified doctors provide care to a wide range of patients for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Kaizo Health’s team includes doctors of chiropractic, certified strength and conditioning specialists, massage therapists, certified chiropractic sports doctors and doctors with specialty postgraduate degrees.
What makes Kaizo Health unique?
Lucas: Everything we do here is continuously vetted by research and driven by research whether it is research that is done in-house or not. The Kaizo Clinical Research Institute is our non-profit arm that conducts clinical research on musculoskeletal injury treatments and prevention. Kaizo Health was recently awarded a $1.7 million grant from NIH for research. Our practice is driven by science and research, where we combine both physical therapy and chiropractic care. We are constantly leveraging new technology to add a level of objectivity to the treatments we deliver, since rehab in general can be pretty subjective. We also offer our patients a free mobile app where they can easily schedule appointments, earn rewards, watch rehab videos, and soon will be able to order their MightyMeals!
What connected you to MightyMeals?
Lucas: I have known MightyMeals’ co-founders, Stefano, Dan and Alex, for a long time. Currently, our tech team is developing a functional medicine component to our mobile app which will tie-in nutrition and how it plays an important part of healing. We partnered with MightyMeals for the nutrition aspect.
How does MightyMeals benefit your members?
Lucas: As holistic practitioners we understand the importance of clean and nutritious foods. We have seen the difference in our patients who have wholesome, high-quality foods. We deal with a lot of high stress people and we understand that people don’t have the time, nor do they prioritize cooking healthy meals and this is how MightyMeals can help our patients get better. It is so important to have a good healthy diet when you are healing and maintaining your health. Part of rehabilitation is muscle building so you need to fuel your body with the right food.
What is your favorite MightyMeals dish?
Lucas: My favorite meal is definitely the Shredded Buffalo Chicken.
