Dr. Elizabeth Brieden wants potential patients to know that chiropractic medicine doesn’t just tend to back and neck pains. A licensed chiropractor for 23 years, as well as a certified therapeutic lifestyle coach and volunteer with the Foundation of Wellness Professionals, Dr. Brieden has used her skills to treat soft- and hard-tissue problems, fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches, and other ailments. From HealthWorks Chiropractic’s ultra-modern facility, she and her team perform such healing modalities as chiropractic adjustments, intersegmental traction, and cooling cryotherapy, which numbs the body to reduce muscle spasms in quadriceps that get too excited when they see a pair of running shoes. The clinic’s staff also includes a licensed massage therapist, who can augment the effects of Dr. Brieden's treatments with chiropractic-inspired massage.
At Elwart Family Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Derek Elwart relies on an arsenal of noninvasive chiropractic services to alleviate spinal ailments without the use of surgery or drugs. Rather than limiting his focus to specific problem areas, Dr. Elwart adopts a holistic approach that accounts for the body’s overall health before determining the proper course of treatment. First visitations commence with a consultation, during which the doctor identifies chronic ailments and discusses treatment options. Even the slightest of abnormalities stands little chance of escaping Dr. Elwart’s eye as he peruses spinalscapes in search of bulging discs, pockets of tension, and unturned wind-up keys. Treatments for back injuries and other maladies may involve any combination of corrective exercise, adjustments, massage, and a Zamboni that rolls across shoulders to resurface ragged musculature.
After graduating from Palmer Chiropractic College, Dr. Daniel Clark went on to become a board-certified chiropractic physician and a member of the Michigan Association of Chiropractors. Today, he draws on more than two decades of experience as he eases back pain, neck cramps, and headaches with an array of services and techniques and help from his staff. When he isn't mending bulging, herniated, and degenerative disks, Dr. Clark treats spinal injuries caused by car accidents and hours spent hunched over seeds, coaxing them to grow into flowers.
