Dr. Carley Fardell, DC, ART

Carley Fardell

Dr. Carley Fardell, DC is a soft tissue rehab focused chiropractor whose practice includes family care as well as the treatment of athletes and chronic pain patients. In order to address both spinal and muscular issues thoroughly, she offers a range of treatments, including Active Release Technique, Graston, and Kinesiotape, in addition to a full range of chiropractic care.

Dr. Carley believes the greatest wealth is health, starting with the spine and nervous system. Her passion is connecting with people and helping her patients to heal. She loves to see people feeling renewed, hopeful, and inspired to improve their health. She believes that “self-care isn’t selfish,” and you’ll see her actively promote healthy living measures by teaching self-care such as foam-rolling, stretching, and clean living. She can also recommend ways to reduce toxicity in your life and help you create a “natural medicine cabinet.”

Dr. Carley enjoys her healthy lifestyle with her daughter Maple, who was born in 2017. Becoming a mother has deepened her understanding of maternal care. This time has also given her the opportunity to slow down and appreciate that it’s important to lead by example with “the chiropractic lifestyle,” including self-care, proper nutrition, exercise, and healthy living.

She grew up in Traverse City enjoying the 'up north' lifestyle and then moved to Northern California, where she got her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology at Sonoma State University. During that time, she became increasingly involved in triathlons and yoga. When she suffered a sports injury, she made a tremendous recovery thanks to excellent chiropractic care and realized that this was how she wanted to make a difference in the world. She enrolled at Palmer Chiropractic College in San Jose, graduated in 2008, and then founded Synergy Sports Chiropractic. She spent nearly a decade serving a diverse community in Silicon Valley. The birth of her daughter motivated her to return back to the best place in the world, Grand Traverse County. 


Marina Mason was born and raised in Rapid City, MI. Marina graduated from Kaplan University with a medical administration degree and has been working with Dr. Darnell for over 15 years. During Marina's free time she loves spending as much time as she can with her family, traveling, eating out and dancing.
