Dr. Mel Youngs, D.C., P.A.

Dr. Melina Youngs, D.C.

Dr. Melina “Mel” Youngs…is a longtime resident of Cape Coral. In fact, there is a unique story behind her 916 Cape Coral Parkway clinic. It was the same location her parents owned and operated the famous YUMS ice cream store for many years. Her practice has been built by getting people well, one person at a time. Good news travels fast and patients who received relief from their pain have referred their friends and family to Dr. Mel. Her patients have become her extended family and they enjoy the extra care and concern that she provides, much like the doctor–patient relationship in the old days.

Dr. Mel offers…lifestyle modification coaching to her patients that can change the way they feel through nutrition counseling, exercise instruction as well as ergonomic advice. As a nationally certified group fitness instructor and former aerobics and kickboxing instructor, she has made a full time commitment to teaching others how to achieve healthy lifestyles. Her approach to health care reflects the newest research in health preservation and longevity.

She teaches her patients the art of maintaining their health rather than just treating disease.

Dr. Mel Youngs has received the following:

  • B.S. in Advertising from University of Florida in 1996
  • B.S. in Human Biology from Logan College in 1998
  • Doctorate in Chiropractic in 1999

Dr. Hutchinson’s approach combines chiropractic adjustments with therapeutic modalities such as massage therapy, K-Laser, and spinal decompression. These treatments are customized to a patient’s condition and work together to provide relief quickly and effectively. Dr. Hutchinson addresses physical symptoms along with the underlying cause in order to alleviate pain and improve quality of life as quickly as possible.

Dr. Hutchinson has a fun family life with an overly competitive husband, teenage daughter, and three crazy cats. Outside of the practice, you will most likely find her spending time with her family, doing yard work, on the beach, or bicycling.
