Meet your A.M.I.T Physicians

Craig Buhler, D.C.

Craig Buhler received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1978 from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. He worked closely with the late Dr. Alan Beardall during the development of Clinical Kinesiology while in chiropractic college. He later completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the physiology department at the University of Utah School of Medicine, focusing on motor physiology.

Dr. Buhler served as the team sports chiropractor for the Utah Jazz professional basketball team for 26 years. He also ran a successful practice in Utah for 45 years. In June of 2002, he established the A.M.I.T.® Clinic in Kaysville, Utah. His expertise contributed to the Utah Jazz achieving the lowest Player-Missed Games due to Injury (PMGI) rate in the NBA for 24 years, thanks to the effectiveness of the A.M.I.T.® method.

People from around the world seek the healing benefits of his work — two of his patients even won medals at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. Dr. Buhler's passion is assisting young athletes in reaching their full potential, but he is happy to help anyone improve their health and performance.

Brandon Imada, D.C.

Brandon Imada, a native of Oahu, Hawaii, grew up with a love for family, sports, and the ocean. His active lifestyle included competing in various water sports like surfing, swimming, water polo, and outrigger canoe paddling.

While pursuing a B.A. in Biology at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, Dr. Imada realized the need for improved healthcare accessibility and holistic education in his community. This led him to choose a career in chiropractic medicine. He attended Life Chiropractic College West in the San Francisco Bay area, specializing in biomechanics and neuromuscular rehabilitation. He became a certified Foundation Training Trainer, working with athletes from various disciplines.

He completed his preceptorship and postdoctoral at Buhler Athletic Injuries and Human Performance Clinic. His goal is to bring these skills back to Hawaii and empower his community to live well.
