Superior Chiropractic Care
Ascent Functional Wellness is one of only a few offices in the Pittsburgh region to specialize in the Activator Methods Technique. A spring-loaded, hand-held instrument called an Activator is used by the chiropractors to deliver gentle adjustments. Specific motions performed by the patient help to identify the bones, joints, or muscles that needs to be adjusted and in which direction. There's no guessing when it comes to your health in our office.
Activator Methods has been studied for over 50 years, and has more researched clinical trials than any other instrument-based technique. This specific technique is extremely popular because there is no twisting, thrusting, or popping to make the adjustment. It causes less stress for the body to process, allowing patients to get better faster. The doctors love this technique, because they’re able to assess any joint in the body, including cranial bones, TMJ, extremities, sinuses, etc.

Meet your Doctors
Dr. Lucas Amorose, DC, CFMP
Dr. Lucas is a native Pittsburgher, having grown up in Greentree. He first experienced chiropractic care after sustaining an injury during a high school football game. He felt instant relief, but didn’t consider it preventative health care until he met Dr. Kelly’s chiropractor in Uniontown, who explained that the adjustment allowed his brain and body to communicate properly! This resonated with Dr. Lucas and his efforts of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and decided to pursue a life mission of helping others live life to the fullest.
Dr. Lucas earned his BA in Biology from Slippery Rock University, his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Life University, and has completed extensive training to become a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner (CFMP). Through nearly a decade of clinical practice, Dr. Lucas has focused his passions to providing quality chiropractic care to the whole family, and working with young professionals and moms who are tired of their fatigue, brain fog, weight issues, and just lacking their zest for life!
Dr. Kelly Amorose, DC, CACCP
Dr. Kelly was born and raised in Uniontown, PA.

She admired a profession that could help individuals live more active, healthier lives naturally!
She earned a BS in Biology from Slippery Rock University, then relocated to Atlanta, GA with Dr. Lucas to pursue her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University. Dr. Kelly focused on her passion of caring for children and pregnant women.
