For the past two decades, Doctor of Chiropractic Kerry Tarvin has been busy doing two things: treating his patients' pain and distinguishing himself from his contemporaries. To date, his accomplishments include a degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic, a board certification for chiropractic orthopedics, and an NBCE certification for acupuncture. At his chiropractic clinic, Back Essentials Chiropractic, Dr. Tarvin puts all his training together, offering spinal-decompression therapy, acupuncture, and massage therapy.

After receiving his MBA and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Chris Tomshack opened his own practice. But one wasn't enough. He needed a real challenge, so he opened two more—all while studying the successes of other industries.

Today, his chiropractors work alongside massage therapists and rehab experts as they craft custom action plans to help their patients overcome common ailments—such as neck pain and headaches—as well as severe conditions. Their Progressive Rehab method combines chiropractic techniques with rehabilitation therapies to relieve nerve pressure and pain. When they aren't nudging rebellious vertebrae, staffers stock a gourmet coffee bar with complimentary treats that always know just what to say.
