As a competitive tennis player, skier, yoga practitioner, and active outdoorsman, Doctor of Chiropractic Richard Hoffman knows how painful and debilitating injuries can be. He specializes in getting injured employees back to work and facilitating seniors' active lifestyles with personalized, one-on-one care. Dr. Hoffman has been in private practice for more than two decades and regularly continues his training in physical therapy and chiropractic care so he can offer the latest equipment and techniques to his patients.
Dr. Hoffman employs advanced technology such as a spinal-decompression table to gently alleviate the pressure associated with compressed discs. His heated Osaki OS-4000 massage chair loosens muscles from the neck all the way down to the calves with an ergonomic, zero-gravity design that cradles the spine and makes a person feel as weightless as a dieting ghost.
Assisted by an able-handed staff, Dr. Olson and ABO certified Drs. Isaacs and Nawy employ discreet Invisalign to true crooked teeth and enhance glowing grins. Begin your oral odyssey with a consultation, during which one of the highly skilled orthodontists will survey your gum gems with a thorough exam, x-rays, photos, and dental impressions. Next, the doctor will advise you on the most beneficial procedure for your personal pearly whites. Should the patient choose to use Invisalign, they can apply a $1,000 credit toward the treatments, which can range in cost between $4,500 and $8,000. This course corrects misaligned jaws without the use of braces or brightly colored bands, allowing users the joy of eating cobbed corn, crunchy toast, and enticing plastic display sushi. Treatments last an average of 6 to 15 months and require a visit every 8 to 10 weeks.
At Accessible Beltway Clinics, a large team of licensed chiropractors traces chronic ailments to their sources and treats them with adjustments.

Nearly 300 years ago, the elders of China's Shaolin Temple convened to develop a new kind of martial arts. They dreamt of a style that would eventually overcome all the others, thanks to its combat efficacy and the fact that it would take a much shorter time to learn. They named this style Wing Chun, a Chinese phrase that translates to "forever springtime" and reflected their hope for a renaissance in Shaolin martial arts.
This renaissance never quite arrived, but traditional Wing Chun is still practiced today. This is largely thanks to the efforts of practitioners such as Grandmaster William Cheung and Sifu Tim Berkemeier, the latter of whom founded Traditional Wing Chun Baltimore. It's easy to see Wing Chun's appeal to modern sensibilities, as it emphasizes a scientific approach that draws on biomechanics and angular deflections. It's also ideal for students who don't have the muscles to send their opponents flying across the room, as it focuses on disabling rather than brute strength.
