Dr. Travis Ring could fill a library with his assorted stacks of to-do lists. The head of Eastern Oklahoma Chiropractic creates a "schedule of care" for each of his patients, personalizing the tasks so that they address both painful symptoms and their underlying causes. He has several tools at his disposal, the most important of which are his hands—they administer careful adjustments that aim to realign ailing vertebrae. He has also mastered ART, or Active Release Technique, a method that relies on manual therapy and movements by the client to offset the effects of old injuries.
Among other approaches to chiropractic wellness, Dr. Ring utilizes intersegmental traction beds, needleless acupuncture, and massages from his office’s resident licensed massage therapist, Crystal. These varied methods can combat chronic aches resulting from a wide range of conditions, including carpal tunnel and shin splints, in addition to bothersome back and neck spasms. Dr. Ring gears his practice towards families and especially enjoys working with children, as their backs typically have fewer hard-to-remove barnacles than those of adults.
Doctor of Chiropractic Justin Snyder is a second-generation physician, and an experienced wellness speaker, who uses chiropractic treatments to help heal without drugs or surgery. A hallmark of chiropractic care, his whole-patient approach is designed to relieve symptoms all over the body. By integrating acupuncture, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy into his practice, Dr. Snyder presents patients with a custom template that helps bodies heal themselves. Dr. Snyder’s passion for athletic hobbies, such as snowboarding, cycling, and battling piranha invasions at local lakes gives him a firsthand look at how bodies function, and he uses this knowledge both in his practice and during his lecture career. He travels to companies, schools, and clubs to share his wisdom on back-injury prevention, pregnancy and postpartum care, and workplace ergonomics.
Dr. Karen Harris's path toward naturopathy began when an illness led her to seek out and study natural alternatives to wellness. Her findings not only led her toward improved health but also uncovered a passion for holistic solutions that set her on the path toward her future career. Today, this doctor of naturopathy and nutritional counselor serves as the head of Saba' Health Center, where she operates under the philosophy that the body can heal itself if given the right ingredients, which may include exercise, a healthy diet, and the expulsion of toxins. To help hasten the healing process, she aids bodies with services that range from colon hydrotherapy to detox formula supplements to body scans for conditions such as gluten sensitivity and celiac disease, and provides access to products including liquid multivitamins and antioxidant juices.
Doctors of Chiropractic Drew Lawrence and Scottie Lawrence, a husband-and-wife duo, helm HealthSource of Tulsa. They work to restore physiques’ symmetry with artful spinal adjustments rather than by installing a sixth finger on your normal hand. The duo also oversees their practice’s signature weight-loss regimens, which complement exercise and healthy meals with a daily dose of the fat-burning hCG hormone.
In the onsite spa, meanwhile, a team performs medical spa procedures. The cold laser beams of their laser lipo treatments noninvasively dissolve fat, catalyzing weight loss. They also provide massages and cosmetic treatments such as eyelash extensions, which emphasize eyes more safely than flaming glasses.
At Active Approach Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Amanda Kilian preaches total-body healing through careful reeducation of the spine. Dr. Kilian and her staff use a variety of techniques, including manual manipulation, intersegmental traction, and electrical stimulation, to align the spine and the delicate bones affected by it. The resulting balance and alignment help bolster the body’s innate ability to heal and ease lower-back pain, headaches, and sciatica. The office staff can also augment treatments through B12 injections, acupuncture, and gentle, restorative massage therapy.
