A healer with more than 25 years of experience, Doctor of Chiropractic James Bissland is a spinal samurai who does honorable battle with a wide variety of aches, pains, and stresses. Appointments begin with a complimentary consultation to assess the guest’s health needs and lottery-winning strategies. If needed, x-rays ($100–$200) can reveal what lies beneath, and several forms of diagnostic examination ($70 each) give a more thorough picture of the issues that might be causing trouble for patients. The moire contour analysis looks for spine misalignment and musculoskeletal distortions, and the postural analysis helps patients finally meet the height requirement for the dragon coaster.

Darrick S. Davis and his team see value in the body's ability to heal itself. In answer to drugs and surgeries, Davis cracks his knuckles and sets to work adjusting and massaging the musculature with the help of chiropractic machines. He and his team use physical tests, x-rays, and dark-field nutritional analysis to uncover the cause of maladies such as degenerative disks, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Davis individualizes his response to findings—he always makes a different facial expression, then prescribes a course of action that may include spinal adjustments, massage, and physical therapy.
Doctor of Chiropractic Barrett Newton and the team at Alliance Chiropractic Center target aches and pains with noninvasive spinal adjustments and muscle-mollifying physical therapies. In the first 75-minute session, Dr. Newton uses a chiropractic evaluation that may include x-rays to determine the proper course of treatment for kinked vertebrae and jack-knifed musculature. The doctor gently manipulates the spine to attempt to restore optimal movement during a chiropractic adjustment, and a massage therapist, whose specialties include deep tissue, trigger point, and reflexology, enacts 30 minutes of stress-relieving muscle work on weary surfaces. Follow-up visits, which can last up to 45 minutes each depending on treatments, combine additional spinal alignments with therapies such as a hot-pack application, electrical muscle stimulation, and intersegmental traction, which works to return mobility to rusty joints.
