Meet the Doctors

Dr. Mary Adey, DC


Hi! I am Dr. Mary Adey, Chiropractor at Kailua Spine Center. I was born and raised in Minnesota and as a college athlete I quickly realized the importance of health and taking care of yourself. After receiving my undergraduate degree, I pursued my passion of health and wellness receiving my Doctor of Chiropractic at Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2014.

I am passionate about treating active families and as a Webster certified chiropractor I have a special interest in women's health and love working with pregnant mommas helping them through all stages of pregnancy!

In my free time you will find me on the beach, running and spending time with my family enjoying all that Hawaii has to offer!

I look forward to helping you wherever you are on your health and wellness journey at Kailua Spine Center! 

Our Doctors
Dr. Sara Pohjola, DC


Early Life and Inspiration

Dr. Sara Pohjola hails from the northern Minnesota. Her early years were marked by a battle with asthma, a condition that had her relying on numerous medications daily. Despite these efforts, her health issues persisted. It wasn’t until a chiropractor suggested examining her spine for potential issues that a new path opened for her. Although skeptical at first, the lack of other options led her to give chiropractic care a try. Remarkably, within six months of treatment, Dr. Sara was free from her medications. This transformative experience ignited a passion within her, leading her father to suggest she pursue a career in chiropractic to help others find similar relief.


Education and Career

Embracing this newfound purpose, Dr. Sara enrolled at Parker University in Dallas, Texas, where she earned her chiropractic degree. Her education equipped her with the knowledge and skills necessary to embark on a career dedicated to improving the lives of her patients through holistic and non-invasive treatments.


Passion for Chiropractic Care

Dr. Sara's practice is inclusive, catering to a diverse range of demographics, but she finds particular fulfillment in working with families, especially women and children. Prenatal and postnatal care are her forte, driven by her fascination with the significant changes a woman’s spine undergoes during pregnancy and after childbirth. Dr. Sara’s knowledgeable and compassionate approach ensures that mothers receive the specific care they need during these transformative times, adding profound purpose to her work.


Community Impact and Philosophy

Dr. Sara often envisions a community where every mother is pain-free, contemplating the positive ripple effects this would have on Kailua. She is inspired by the words of B. J. Palmer, the developer of chiropractic: “We never know how far reaching something we may think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.” This philosophy underscores her approach to care, emphasizing the long-term benefits of chiropractic treatment on individual and community well-being. Dr. Sara’s love for the outdoors and warm weather made Hawaii the perfect place to call home. Since 2018, she has been living on Oahu, integrating herself into the local community and establishing a practice that reflects her deep commitment to health and wellness.

Personal Touch

Beyond her professional achievements, Dr. Sara is known for her personalized approach to chiropractic care. She eagerly looks forward to meeting new patients, regardless of where they are on their health journeys. Her goal is to help everyone discover the potential benefits of chiropractic care, improving their quality of life through her dedicated practice.
