At each massage appointment, one of four skilled practitioners, each with knowledge of a variety of techniques and decades of experience, unravels muscular knots with the precision of an archer and the nimbleness of a Twister champion. Using a customized blend of kneading techniques, the clinic tailors the massage to the client’s specific ailments, from arthritis, headaches, and fibromyalgia to chronic pain and accident recovery. Each stroke promotes healing and relaxation by releasing tension from the joints and facilitating blood flow in the muscle tissue. The clinic also fights stress with its flexible schedule, which includes evening and weekend availability.
Dr. Pollack's interest in chiropractic care comes from a personal source. When he was in high school, an accidental dive off a wrestling mat resulted in a severe knee injury. An orthopedic surgeon told him his shredded cartilage would have to be removed, which meant a six-month recovery. Dr. Pollack's father, a dairy farmer, needed his son's help on the farm, so they decided to consult a chiropractor before putting his ailing joint under the knife. After an examination, the chiropractor determined that Dr. Pollack had actually twisted his knee, dislodging a bone in the process. One adjustment erased the pain, and he never had surgery. More than three decades later, he still draws upon his youthful introduction to chiropractic care when he and his staff practitioners unravel muscular knots and straighten spines with techniques such as therapeutic massages, trigger-point therapy, and spinal adjustments.
