With more than 370 locations and 300,000 patients, HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab brings well-trained doctors and, thus, pain relief to all corners of the continental United States. Each office’s staff provides treatments designed to quell lower-back and leg pain, vertigo, scoliosis, migraines, and carpal tunnel. Rather than rely on what they call passive chiropractic care—roller tables, heat packs, ice packs—the staffers at HealthSource mostly prescribe an active care plan to patients. This means they will perform rehabilitation routines alongside chiropractic adjustments to soothe muscle spasms, increase flexibility, and straighten posture so much that local schoolmarms begin suffering from midlife crises en masse.
Doctor Herbert Buckner of Buckner Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Services believes that health is the most important thing a person can strive for. To help his clients successfully reach higher levels of wellness, he diagnoses and non-invasively treats a wide range of ailments, from sore lower backs to chronic migraines. In addition to realigning bones so that the body can function and heal properly, the doctor can recommend and sell a range of dietary supplement to any client who seeks an added boost.
Alabama Life Chiropractic Center’s skilled staff identifies problem areas with x-rays and then ameliorates ailments with manual adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments ensure that spinal discs align as soundly as the toy bricks of wunderkind architects, while decompression therapy aims to alleviate bulging or herniated discs by using a motorized device that stretches spines. Therapeutic massages also work to help clients regain bodily comfort and a full range of motion, doing for muscles what boiling water does for spaghetti.
The staff at SpineCare uses only non-surgical techniques to alleviate aches, such as kinesiology tape, which helps the body to support muscles, and spinal decompression, a technique that can be beneficial for disc pain. For each patient, staffers create a custom treatment plan that can be used to target an extensive list of conditions that plague the head, neck, lower back, knees, legs, and ankles. The SpineCare staff also serves as the official team chiropractors for the Huntsville Havoc.
