Goldi Jacques-Maynes, the almost-eponymous founder of Golden Chiropractic, draws on knowledge gleaned while training with leading authorities in sports chiropractic medicine to keep spines happy, healthy, and pliable. Before administering customized treatments, the licensed chiropractor first gets to know her patients through a medical history overview that accounts for past injuries and part-time jobs with Sisyphean construction crews. X-rays afford an internal peek at the spine’s going-ons, and adjustments relieve sublaxations before Dr. Jacques-Maynes calls upon activator adjusting instruments, electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound therapy to correct ailing discs.
The center’s resident massage therapists, Monica and Nancy Ferreira, supplement chiropractic treatments with massage techniques cultivated during hours of training. Whether gliding across backs with Swedish-style strokes or placing warm rocks in areas of built-up pressure, Monica and Nancy work to reduce muscle tension and increase joints’ range of motion.
