Dr. Heidi M. Reuschling, D.C., C.S.C.S.
Dr. Heidi, D.C., C.S.C.S. moved to Vidalia, GA in December 2008 and immediately fell in love with this friendly community. In high school, she was Captain of her varsity volleyball team, played on the Junior National Soccer Team, and was voted Most Athletic of her senior class. After high school, she continued her passion for athletics while attending Western Michigan University. In 2004, Heidi graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science and Chemistry, and was awarded the National Exercise Science Major of the Year. That same year, she went on to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and still maintains that certification today. Armed with her exercise science degree and her passion for athletics, she trained others to reach their peak physical potential.
After graduation, she took a job as a chiropractic assistant on 8 Mile Road in Detroit, where she witnessed thousands of patients recovering from a variety of conditions. In 2005, she enrolled in the intensive 4-year doctorate program at Life University College of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia. She earned the prestigious Harvey Lillard award for her extensive community service at Kanley Chapel and the Boys & Girls Club. She also mentored underclassmen by instructing sessions in human anatomy. In 2008, she graduated Summa Cum Laude as President and Salutatorian of her chiropractic class.
As a Doctor of Chiropractic, she is helping her Vidalia / Baxley patients from infancy to her oldest patient at 93 years of age. She loves being a part of the Vidalia Community! If you’ve ever had a child in soccer, enjoyed a Toombs-Montgomery Chamber event, had a daughter in Girl Scouts, or been involved with the Downtown Vidalia Association, you’ve probably already met her. In Coach Calloway’s 50th year as head of the Lyons Recreation Department, she led the co-ed travel soccer team to a Georgia State Championship. Apparently, in Augusta, they hadn’t heard of Lyons; but we showed them who we were!
Dr. Heidi, D.C. has worked with pregnant women, babies with colic (and their sleepless parents), teachers who need more energy, people who can’t stop snoring, friends with frequent headaches, and basically anyone with a spine. All she does is adjust the spine to get great results, so come in and learn how this works!
Dr. Christopher F. Foster, D.C.
Hi. I’m Dr. Chris Foster, D.C. I grew up with my parents and two older sisters in a small Michigan town in the thumb area (Michiganders do use their hand as a map). I was an avid golfer and bowler, shooting a hole-in-one as well as five 300-games in bowling. At 17, I went to the upper peninsula of Michigan to visit with family and discovered that one of my cousins was a Chiropractor. I didn’t know anything about chiropractic at the time, so I decided to shadow his practice. After just a few days I was hooked, and I was bound and determined to become a chiropractor. I learned from my cousin, that through proper chiropractic adjustments, patients could not only feel better from aches and pains, but they also got healthier overall—their digestive systems started working better, sinus and allergies started decreasing, and blood pressures were going down! I thought it was amazing to see that the power that made the body does heal the body, so long as there is no interference to the nervous system.
After that, I enrolled at Saginaw Valley State University where I graduated with a double bachelor’s degree. Prior to enrolling in the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic (the first Chiropractic institution in the world), I spent three years as a massage therapist, frequently working with the Detroit Lions Football Team. During my time at Palmer, I was a teaching assistant in the anatomy lab where I taught other students anatomy on human cadavers. I also attended their clinic abroad program where I went to Salvador, Brazil to finish out my clinical hours. In June of 2012, I graduated Magna Cum Laude as a Doctor of Chiropractic, and immediately moved to Vidalia with my wife Brittany to begin working at Tri-County Clinic. I started working the Baxley office as well in 2015.
My wife and my three daughters, Ava, Isabelle, Abigail, and my son Jonathan Luke really love it here. They love the fact that we can talk about Jesus literally anywhere we go. I look forward to serving these amazing communities for many years to come. Thank you Vidalia and Baxley!
Dr. Heather Turner, D.C., LAT, ATC
Dr. Turner, D.C. grew up in northeastern Ohio on Lake Erie. She loved boating and being in the water, which led her to being a competitive swimmer for 10 years. With that background, athletic training was a natural fit and she received her B.S. in Athletic Training from the University of Mount Union.
After undergrad, she decided to pursue her Master’s Degree in Sports Health Science and enrolled at Life University Chiropractic School as a graduate assistant Athletic Trainer. During her tenure there, she observed first-hand the benefits that athletes received from the chiropractors on staff. As a result of chiropractic care in conjunction with their rehabilitation care, she saw that athletes had better recovery times from injuries, especially concussions. These observations compelled her to change her career path, so she switched her enrollment to the Doctor of Chiropractic program. While getting her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, she continued to work as an athletic trainer for high school & college sports teams and events.
Upon graduation, Dr. Turner, D.C. moved to South Georgia to join Tri-County Chiropractic and has been serving the Vidalia & Baxley communities since then. With her athletic training background, she still loves to work with athletes & weekend warriors, but she also serves a wide variety of patients including her favorite patient – her Grandma at age 89.
