Spinal adjustments aren't the only way that the staff at Pinnacle Chiropractic alleviates pain. They also rely on therapeutic services like massage therapy, exercise therapy, and muscle stimulation. In addition to treating injuries and chronic aches, they can coordinate weight loss programs for clients who want to make a major life change or just drop a few pounds.
Both Doctor of Chiropractic Young and Doctor of Chiropractic Pairmore studied at Palmer College of Chiropractic and were inspired to pursue the profession based on their personal experiences with the chiropractic world. Dr. Young comes from a long line of chiropractors—including his father, mother, aunt, and uncle—while Dr. Pairmore found out firsthand the benefits of adjustments after suffering from an injured back. Their practice aims to help patients with both traditional and advanced chiropractic services. Dr. Young employs more than 30 years of experience as well as his expertise with paraspinal digital infrared imaging to help heal upper-cervical and nervous-system issues, and Dr. Pairmore uses the Gonstead technique—the same method used on his back—along with Graston and MR4 laser-therapy equipment. Together the duo focuses on building lasting relationships with their patients, while presenting them with personalized treatment plans that are more unique than a DNA double-helix sculpture made out of snowflakes.
With 15 locations statewide, Arctic Chiropractic serves most regions of Alaska, including its flagship location in Anchorage, located at 36th and Denali (formerly Kremer Chiropractic). The office's staff of nine massage therapists offer modalities such as relaxation, deep tissue, sports, pregnancy, and Swedish. All treatments are overseen by an on-staff physician, who can help with general healthcare goals and especially tricky sudoku puzzles.
Embody Health & Wellness Center LLC's massage and chiropractic services may seem nearly endless, but they all work toward a common goal: relieving pain. Medical massage eases kinks associated with illness, whereas acupressure unblocks internal energy, which may be causing aches. Reflexology blends massage and pressure-point work to boost overall wellness, and lymphatic-drainage massage releases fluids that contribute to inflammation.
Wielding extensive treatment knowhow for auto accident and whiplash after-effects, doctor of chiropractic Robert Wheeler deftly pushes backbones into equilibrium with noninvasive services. Before recommending treatment, an initial exam scouts over spines to find the source of aches and disruptive creaking sounds that can’t be helped by a squeeze from an oiling can. Dr. Wheeler then consults with clients to chart a course of preventative and pain-ousting treatments, which can involve ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and massage or laser therapy. Finally, chiropractic adjustments ease cheeky vertebrae back into line, potentially reducing soreness and future pain.
At Alaska Pain & Injury Clinic, Dr. Evan Tipikin straightens out crooked spines and wayward lifestyles with chiropractic care, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling. Though his list of services runs long, a single philosophy unites them all: no two bodies are quite the same. That?s why Dr. Tipikin insists on conducting a full evaluation each time he sees a new patient. During your initial visit, he may jot down notes on your reflexes as well.
Armed with that knowledge, the doctor and his team develop personalized plans to heal injuries and relieve chronic pains. Massage therapy and corrective exercises work to alleviate some of those bodily troubles, with the clinic's nutritional counseling and advice services helping patients reach the next level of fitness.
