The doctor also shares tips for corrective exercises, which target the muscles and connective tissues that often become strained over time; the exercises can be performed at home or in front of a live studio audience. In addition to its chiropractic practitioner, Terrapin Care Center houses massage therapists who mollify sinews with smooth strokes that increase circulation, reduce swelling, and ease injuries.

If an adjustment is unnecessary, Dr. Mirando may refer clients to one of his two massage therapists, who can dissipate tension and stress with deep-tissue and Swedish massages or active-release therapy.
