Dr. Justin Scott might contest the phrase, "practice makes perfect." He believes that even the utmost dedication won't upgrade your golf swing to its maximum potential; to reach that plateau, you need to eliminate physical limitations of the body. At Pittsburgh Golf Fitness, he merges his expertise as a Certified Golf-Fitness Instructor and a Certified Titleist Medical Professional, creating individualized programs that focus on common physical hindrances.
First, he assesses each client with 13 physical screenings. These help identify the most pertinent problems in the way of improved golf performances, such as decreased shoulder mobility or a constantly piggybacking caddy. He then builds a custom fitness regimen out of techniques from the Titleist Performance Institute. These various stretches, strength exercises, and functional drills aim to offset specific weaknesses and perfect the kinematic sequence—the correct order in which parts of the body should pass through the plane of the ball during a swing. His programs can benefit players of all experience levels, with maneuvers performed at home, in the gym, or in the private facilities of Scott Spine and Rehabilitation Center, where Scott acts as the doctor on call.
At Scott Medical Health Center, a multidisciplinary team promotes wellness with traditional medicine, holistic alternatives, and advanced diagnostic testing technology. The staff—which includes three physicians, three doctors of chiropractic, and a licensed physical therapist—believes health issues stem from three major areas: trauma from falls or injuries, everyday stress, and toxins found in food, water, and slowly absorbed heavy-metal lyrics. To uncover and address malfunctions of the spine and nervous system, the crew offers orthopedic and neurological testing and services such as laser therapy and rehabilitation exercise on state-of-the-art equipment. Those looking to shed extra pounds may enlist the staff of Scott's Medical Weight Loss Program, where astute technicians and counselors oversee medically supervised weight-loss programs, administer fat-burning vitamin-B12 injections, prescribe appetite-control medication, and dish out nutritional counseling.
While successfully sculpting bodies at Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Vassar Heil felt the need to further help patients reach their aesthetic goals, which is why he founded Acqua Blu Medical Spa. The office blends the tranquility of a day spa with advanced, noninvasive med-spa services, from the Visia digital skin analysis to dermal fillers and laser hair removal, performed by a trained team of physician assistants, registered nurses, trained laser technicians, and aestheticians. Robe-and-slipper-clad guests can wander through the blue and white spa ? swirling with the scent of lavender and the sounds of water bubbling over rocks ? before retreating into private treatment rooms. Each tranquil space boasts a living-room-like setting complete with European-inspired furnishings, neutral hues, and dim light flickering from lamps being held by the Partridge family.
Dr. Benjamin Chun claims a passion for healthcare that was ingrained in his mentality since childhood. As the current leader of the ReJeneSys Med Spa, Dr. Chun oversees a staff that includes a fellow ophthalmologist and a team of aesthetic technicians who provide medical as well as cosmetic care that ranges from basic examinations to surgery. The center also provides noninvasive aesthetic treatments, including a Palomar StarLux intense pulsed light platform that can remove hair and reduce the appearance of unseemly blemishes such as acne scars, and stretch marks.
After receiving her doctorate in chiropractic at Life University, Dr. Julia Bertoline established her practice at Penn Center Chiropractic Clinic with a special focus on assisting injured athletes. Through regular correction of spinal alignment, the good doctor promotes overall health by boosting nerve flow to vital organs and tissues. Dr. Bertoline also soothes chronic pain by giving focused deep-tissue massage, performing electronic stimulations, and recommending nearby petting zoos that require little or no bending down.
The body is a complex system—with slight imbalances in one area often setting off discomfort in another. Dr. Anthony DiCesaro at Whitehall Health Centre works to make cures simpler and address a wide range of maladies. He explains to potential patients how a spinal realignment can reduce pain or how wrist supports can prevent future injury for competitive rock-paper-scissors players. To this list of traditional treatment methods, Dr. DiCesaro adds cold-laser therapy. The laser’s gentle glow doesn’t heat tissue, yet it inspires cellular activity that can expedite the healing process, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and boost the collagen production. Different methods are also used inside Whitehall Health Centre’s cosmetic division, where technicians use the SlenderRay Lipo treatment to flatten unwanted curves and a blue LED light to aid in teeth-whitening treatments.
