Fairmont Homes, Inc. Opens In-House Clinic

Mon Apr 10, 2017

NAPPANEE, Indiana — Jared Sult said he used to work through pain in his rib cage, lower back and legs.

A team leader for Fairmont Homes Inc., he helps build modular homes that the company manufactures in Nappanee – a job that can be very physically demanding. Sult doesn't have to work through the pain anymore, though. Instead he schedules a visit with chiropractor, Dr. Mark Hutsell, who works out of a small office in the plant two days a week, according to a story by the Elkhart Truth.

Hutsell has worked with Sult, managing how he does his job and working with him to make sure he stays healthy and happy, while putting his time in on the manufacturing floor.
