Dr. Brady DeClerk,  DC, CF-L2

Dr. Brady DeClerk grew up in Pocahontas, Arkansas. After receiving his bachelor’s degree from the University of Arkansas in human biological sciences and a Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine from Logan University in St. Louis, he began practicing as a Chiropractor. Brady opened Omnis Rehab in 2006.

Brady is also a Co-Owner of Omnis CrossFit. He is a Level 2 CrossFit trainer and certified CrossFit Football trainer.

“I pride myself on taking the whole body into account and treating the joints, muscles and nervous system at the same time with adjustments, myofascial work and rehabilitative exercises,” Brady says. “Owning Omnis is a dream come true. I get to come to work every day excited because I’m treating people to not only get them out of pain, but also to allow them to continue to do the things that they love. This may be a sport or activity, but it also may be getting back to playing with their kids or grandkids. People are sometimes told they should stop doing what they love. We’re here to help you get back to doing what you enjoy most.”

Brady and his wife Sarah have two kids, Samantha and Jacks. When not at Omnis, they love doing anything outdoors – including fishing, camping and getting on the water. “Music is big in our lives. We love going to concerts, if we can stay awake. We also love going to Razorback games in the fall. If we can get our kids to enjoy nature and appreciate the small things in life, we feel like we have done our job.”

“One thing people may not know about me is that I play music. I earned money in chiropractic school by singing and playing guitar at different places to help pay the rent.”

 

Dr. Stark Ligon, DC

Dr. Stark is a Little Rock native who grew up hiking, biking, and rock climbing around the Ozarks. After graduating from UALR with a B.S. in Biology, and a 2 year stint in snowy Boulder, CO, he moved further west to Portland, Oregon. There, Dr. Stark received his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine from the University of Western States. After running a successful practice in Portland for a few years while his partner, Margaret finished her Acupuncture degree, they decided to move back to Little Rock to practice together in their hometown.

“I discovered Chiropractic care while searching for help with several chronic sports injuries.   At one point I would injure myself more quickly than I could heal. Finally, a Chiropractor showed me how my body was all connected, and that sometimes when our bodies can’t heal themselves properly, we need a gentle nudge in the right direction to restore proper function. What I’ve learned since then is that sometimes that nudge is a chiropractic adjustment, sometimes it’s a change in our diet and exercise, or even changing our internal dialogue and finding better strategies for dealing with life’s stresses.  My goal for each patient is to identify what’s getting in the way of them achieving better health. This often involves digging deep into the root cause of their problems and working on those issues from several different directions at once.”

When Dr. Stark’s not helping patients with aches and pains, providing functional medicine or lifestyle coaching, you can find him out exploring the rocks, trails and rivers around the Natural State, usually with his rescue dog Bullet.

Margaret Goodloe, MAcOM, LAc

Margaret is a licensed acupuncturist and trained herbalist. She found East Asian Medicine as a last resort to help with years of chronic ankle pain. After her first treatment, not only had her ankle pain improved, but so had her digestion and sleep – the kicker was they never put a needle in her ankle! After this experience, Margaret attended Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, one of the oldest and most reputable schools in the nation for East Asian Medicine. In 2021, Margaret moved back to her hometown of Little Rock to share her skills and knowledge of this incredible medicine with the Natural State.

As a holistic practitioner, Margaret believes one size does not fit all in medicine. She treats the whole patient, identifying the root of the problem and tailoring each treatment plan to the individual. She values listening to her patients and making sure their care is centered around their goals. Margaret is passionate about treating general pain conditions, lowering inflammation and helping patients heal themselves so they can get back to doing the activities they love. She is trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), sports medicine acupuncture/trigger point release, Japanese Meridian Acupuncture, and many non-needling techniques like cupping, gua sha, and TuiNa (Chinese Massage/Physical Therapy). Additionally, Margaret specializes in reproductive issues and fertility. She works with patients on promoting regular menstrual cycles, addressing OB/GYN conditions, reducing PMS and cramps, reducing menopausal symptoms and helping people with subfertility get pregnant and carry a healthy pregnancy to term.

Every day she is continually impressed at East Asian Medicines ability to heal and restore balance to the body. When Margaret is not studying to enhance her training, she loves being outside in nature surrounded by earth, rock and trees. She also loves cooking, gardening, biking, rock climbing and exploring the Natural State with her partner, Stark and their rescue dog, Bullet.
