The experts at Sonostics are pioneers in vibromyography, a technology developed at Binghamton University that transforms muscle vibration into information. Their MyoWave process uses sensors and preinstalled software to scan the knees and joints to root out various muscle imbalances, allowing the staff to customize an exercise regimen that patients can follow on their own or in consultation with their own trainer or physical therapist. Staff provide followup appointments between assessments in order to gauge the effectiveness of the exercise program.

Parker Chiropractic's licensed massage therapist, Rhonda Shute, kneads worries into thin air with treatments designed to promote relaxation and relieve muscle tension. Anxiety-ridden areas are smoothed into submission for one hour, loosening knots and revealing inter-organ chatter about the appendix. A 30-minute performance evaluation, patterned after those utilized in professional sports medicine, is designed to diagnose potential soft-tissue problems. The staff devises a treatment plan for each patient, which may include boosting tissue strength through conditioning or removing hefty backpacks full of bowling-ball catalogs. Doctor of Chiropractic Parker is an American Chiropractic Association member with a specialization in rehabilitating painful work injuries and acute or chronic athletic injuries.
The chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists who make up Back N Touch Wellness Center’s core staff share an appreciation for holistic remedies and an understanding that no two bodies are alike. These mutual tenets form the basis for all of the center’s personalized treatments, which cater to patients ailing from body aches, migraines, pregnancy side effects, and the lingering effects of mechanical-bull rides.
Chiropractors combine hand and instrument adjustments with flexion and drop-table equipment to straighten crooked vertebrae, and massage therapists manipulate muscle fibers with 11 different modalities. Acupuncturists rely on the ancient principles of Chinese medicine as they insert hair-thin needles at the body’s trigger points, stimulating natural healing responses and popping the balloons at convivial toxin get-togethers.
Piloted by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Potenza, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery provides a variety of beauty-enhancing services in a medically sound environment. Licensed medical aesthetician Shannon Martin zaps the wayward blood vessels known as spider veins with her Venus-imported Cutera laser, using light-generated heat to kill off offending veins by coagulating the blood within them. Deceased vessels are subsequently reabsorbed into the body, fading away like Mozart’s one-hit-wonder career over a period of four to six weeks. The cosmetic treatment is safe on all skin types, returning epidermises to their porcelain-scented factory settings.
