Dr. Katalina Dean is a Partner at the Utah Scoliosis Center in Midvale / Salt Lake City Utah. She’s always had a passion for health and fitness.

Starting in her early teens, she became a professional snowboarder for 10 years. During this time, she co-founded and competed on the US Women’s Snowboard Team. A healthy body was critical to her ability to function at her best.

Later Dr. Dean became a massage therapist, personal trainer and nutritionist where she helped others improve their health. She wanted to take her passion for health one step further as a licensed chiropractor. To accomplish this goal, she graduated from BYU Hawaii with a Bachelors in Chemistry and then attended Parker Chiropractic University where she graduated with her Doctor of Chiropractic in 2010.

After graduating, Dr. Dean continued her studies in the Chiropractic Neurology post graduate program and became a Certified Clinical Chiropractic Neurologist. She worked in several clinics in Texas where she helped children with Autism, Dyslexia, and ADHD to have a better life.

In 2013 Dr Dean was introduced to Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) which is the cutting edge of chiropractic and the top of it is field for Spinal Rehabilitation backed by scientific research. She has received certification in Chiropractic Biophysics and Scoliosis Care (ScoliCare). Dr. Katalina Dean decided to partner with Dr. John Ratliff because he was a pioneer in CBP in Utah and wanted to learn from one of the best in this field. Together they are making a difference and changing lives in our community.

Dr John Ratliff DC

People ask me why I became a chiropractor .It’s a good question because it goes to the core about what drives me. Many years ago in my senior year of high school baseball, I herniated a disc in my low back diving for a ball. For the next six years I was plagued with severe leg pain and low back pain. Pain pills were prescribed and physical therapy. Nothing worked. The pills masked it and probably created a false sense of security such that I would continue to cause more injury through my activities. Eventually I had surgery but continued to struggle.

Finally, after a bad episode my mom said to try her chiropractor who had helped her headaches. I pretty much crawled into his office, but to my amazement I walked out with real improvement and without drugs.

I was in my fourth year at BYU looking to be a dentist. I switched to chiropractic and headed off to Palmer College of Chiropractic. I finished with a bachelor of Science degree and a four year doctorate in chiropractic. I am a distinguished fellow in Chiropractic Biophysics.

Post graduate courses help me stay up with the latest evidence based protocols. I’m a diplomat of the Board of Chiropractic Examiners and certified in spine trauma. I am a distinguished fellow in chiropractic biophysics and have completed all courses for Advanced Certification. Completing an advanced course of study in the diagnosis and clinical management of whiplash trauma has helped me help thousands of auto injury victims.

During my years at Brigham Young University I met my lovely wife Patti. She is a retired elementary school teacher and mother. We have five great children and 6 grandchildren. We live in Highland, Utah.

Danielle Glover

Personal Trainer

In fitness, as in life, satisfaction is attained through the journey. As a fitness professional, I have the skills to guide you on this journey using motivation, accountability, and individualized instruction. My name is Danielle Glover. I have been a personal trainer for 12 years. My degree in Exercise and Sport Science has given me the foundation for a well-rounded training approach. Being a marathon and trail runner, rock climber, and hiker has developed my understanding of sport-specific and cross training. A NASM certification in Corrective Exercise has enabled me to help people whom have pre-existing movement challenges and muscle imbalances in the shoulder, hip, knee, and lower back etc. Training at the Titleist lab in Carlsbad, CA gave me the knowledge needed to understand the demands that golf has on the body and the ability to give golfers individual sport-specific fitness instruction.

Training is my passion. I enjoy bringing that energy and enthusiasm into my classes and training sessions.  As a trainer, I am invested in the success of every one of my clients.
