HealthSource's chiropractor takes a proactive approach to well-being. Rather than waiting for illness to make the first move, he looks for early signs of it, such as pain, with hands-on examinations of the spine. Once the chiropractor has located the source of the pain, he triggers the body’s self-healing mechanism with gentle, noninvasive adjustments and other drug-free therapies.
EZ Health stocks staggeringly flush coffers of vitamins, supplements, and weight loss products designed to keep folks up and running. Multivitamins fill nutritional gaps, while protein smoothies supply hefty amounts of soy protein for those about to hit the gym. For more routine nutritional backup, the apothecaries keep a panoply of panaceas on hand, ranging from pills to offset the effects of diabetes to potent antioxidants that aim to shut down cancer-causing free-radicals.
From professional athletes to months-old babies, the chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists at All Pro Health Center use their expertise to maximize wellness and body function. The center is the official sports-medicine and health-care center for both the California Quake women's tackle-football team and the Pacific Warriors women's professional football organization, and resident Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Feng has an extensive background in sports medicine. After training at UCLA as a member of the Bruins' sports-medicine program, Dr. Feng served on the medical teams of both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Kansas City Chiefs. His voice may sound familiar from the local radio shows in which he discusses developments in the field of sports medicine, such as solar-powered athletic benches that warm themselves.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and needle-free acupuncture, Dr. Feng and his colleagues treat sports injuries or everyday ailments with a range of manual and high-tech therapies. A certified practitioner performs active-release techniques, a patented soft tissue-based massage system that alleviates pain emanating from overused muscles. The crew also offers relief via physical therapy, kinesiotaping, and cold-laser therapy.
Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Glenn Swart has mastered an array of chiropractic techniques to assist his practice's holistic approach to healing. Beyond manual adjustments, he can identify the locations of spinal joint dysfunction by observing the joints with motion palpation. Practice also uses state of the art physiotherapy equipment to assist with their treatments.
The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
