Neck pain doesn't typically come from the neck: it is often rooted in the spine, spinal column, and nerve network. At Midwest Chiropractic and Sports Medicine, Doctor of Chiropractic Sean P. Rogan and his staff uncover the underlying causes of bodily aches and pains so that they not only soothe them, but end them. Dr. Rogan relies on such treatment methods as spinal adjustments, decompression, electrical muscle stimulation, and laser therapy to leave muscles pain-free and relaxed.
Doctor of Naturopathy Inge Wetzel assesses the condition of the human body by studying some of its less conventionally considered aspects. She uses a computerized biofeedback system to monitor impulses emitted by the hand, subsequently drawing conclusions about the body’s balance. Similarly, she reads markings on the iris, the colored part of the eye, to screen for problems that span the body. Kinesiology sessions test for weaknesses in certain muscles to reveal physical or nutritional deficiencies, and biological terrain assessments will show stresses on different organs based on the body's internal environment. Dr. Wetzel also offers personalized weight-loss programs.
As a chiropractor with additional certifications in soft-tissue techniques, such as the Graston technique and Kinesio taping, Kerri Howerton uses a range of approaches to find the best way to resolve back pain. At Active Body Chiropractic & Wellness, Howerton and her staff work to free patients from the pain and discomfort derived from auto or sports injuries, fibromyalgia, and other issues.
Before Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Miller founded Healing Hands Chiropractic, he excelled in a different arena—basketball. The one-time hoops player from Canada parlayed his love of sports into a career as an athletic trainer, which allowed him to develop therapeutic methods for alleviating the physical maladies of his teammates. This hands-on approach to healing rivaled the kinesthetic euphoria of bounding across the gleaming hardwood court, and inspired him to pursue massage and chiropractic licensing in order to infuse clients with relaxation and assist in recovery from injuries.
Dr. Miller or massage therapist Paula Liberty leads guests past floor-to-ceiling-windows, models of healthy spines, and sketches of what Gumby's spine might look like before inquiring into individual issues and applying a variety of modalities. Dr. Miller educates patrons in free, biweekly seminars on health-related subjects such as yoga, cholesterol reduction, and peace treaties with bees, and also organizes food and coat drives for those in need.
The chiropractic practitioners at Adjust 4 Life are dedicated to helping their patients maintain optimum health through holistic alternatives to prescription meds and full-body Cyberman upgrades. You'll receive a consultation to determine your particular health needs and a digital nerve analysis (a $125 value), during which the spine is scanned with a tool that measures nerve strength between the brain and internal organs and determines just how automatically your autonomic nervous system is performing. Post-exam, you'll receive an adjustment (a $40 value) to your most afflicted area, be it the back, neck, or phantom arm. This is followed by a 30-minute therapeutic massage (a $45 value), ideal for freeing trapped stress from the dark well of your muscles.
