With chiropractic doctorates that crown undergraduate educations in human biology, Doctors of Chiropractic Jarrod Lippy and Joshua Levin bring wisdom and experience to their practice and to their philosophy, which integrates the health of both mind and body and centers around preventative care. The duo perform their back-mending services with the latest in high-tech equipment, including computerized spinal analyses, electrical muscle stimulation, and hydromassage, during which patients lie fully clothed inside a water-massage bed or beneath white-water rapids as pressurized jets assuage tension. The doctors focus on each patient individually, employing their extensive experience in personal and work injuries, lower-back pain, and arthritis to properly diagnose maladies, perform adjustments, and refer patients to additional specialists if necessary.
If you're looking to relieve chronic back pain or make it easier to perform everyday tasks, all without surgery, chiropractic treatment may be the answer. Through the ChiroMassage Centers's list of affiliates across 25 states, patients enlist the help of a licensed doctor of chiropractic, eschewing drugs or invasive treatments for targeted spinal adjustments.
Areas of chronic pain stand little chance against the specialist's careful manipulations, which may help increase range of motion, restore joint function, and prevent vestigial tails from drooping in an unseemly fashion. The knowledgeable doctors not only get to the source of illness and discomfort with joint and spinal treatments, but also help their clients prevent future issues with education and wellness instruction.
Licensed chiropractor Rob Marvenko sees the body as a single, harmonious entity. Each component affects the function of all the others, as in a delicate ecosystem or the mosh pit at a Slayer concert. Marvenko's hands-on techniques reflect this holistic view of the body. During neuromuscular-reeducation sessions for soft-tissue injuries, he reinforces the nerve signals for functional movement by use of repetitive motions and muscle stimulation. Through the Chiropractic Biophysics technique, he focuses on normalizing posture and spinal curvature. In addition to bringing spines and nervous systems back into balance, he and the clinic's massage therapist practice hydrotherapy massage and physical therapy.
Doctor of Chiropractic Stacy Cohen founded First State Health & Wellness shortly after he received his degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984. Since then, his center has expanded to six locations and welcomed aboard 12 other chiropractic physicians.
Each location features traditional adjustment techniques and Activator tools that rapidly and gently prod trouble spots. A few locations feature specialty techniques such as the Newark location's high-tech subluxation scanning and the Wilmington location's adjustable Thompson Terminal Point table made up of several different cushions that help it morph into an even more therapeutic surface: a ping-pong table.
Dr. Cohen and his staff complement their chiropractic touch with acupuncture, massage, and nutritional counseling services, which are overseen by the center's own licensed acupuncturists and certified massage therapists. Together, the team's collective efforts have been awarded The News Journal's Reader's Choice Award for Best Chiropractic Office in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2003 and 2009.
Doctor of Chiropractic Adam Maddox knows how to restore a spine's curvature using clinical biophysics, and he has the certification to prove it. He first studied the technique during his fellowship, learning that you needed spinal traction to restore the spine's curvature and then a personalized exercise program to strengthen the muscles and atom-sized Atlases that support everyone's spine. Today, at his clinic, Ideal Health Chiropractic, Dr. Maddox continues to practice the nonsurgical spinal-correction technique alongside other chiropractic services such as nutritional counseling, physical therapy, and Webster-technique-aided spinal adjustments.
Though she devotes much of her free time to running, cycling, and loving animals, Doctor of Chiropractic Ginger Pellerin devotes her office hours to maintaining healthy backs and bodies. Wielding certifications in chiropractic sports medicine, prenatal and pediatric chiropractic, and the Webster technique, she addresses spinal ailments with a long-term aim to—in the words of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges—help the body "heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery." To ensure a thorough approach, she and her staffers often complement their treatments with secondary medical evaluations. When clients first arrive at Pellerin Chiropractic, they're ushered into private treatment rooms for initial consultations that explore health history, identify current issues and concerns, and introduce treatment options. Next comes an exam to pinpoint affected vertebrae and soft tissues that lack the strength to speak up for themselves. The doctors use spinal adjustments and soft-tissue therapy to reduce symptomatic stress on the first visit, and reveal complete findings from the exam and any x-rays on the second visit. During additional sessions, they discuss long-term treatments to help relieve spinal stress, heal tissues, and normalize bodily functions; they might also work their patients' joints using extended physical therapy.
