When it comes to athletics, the medical team at Highland Park Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation—formerly Highland Park Chiropractic—is serious about competitive sports. Dr. Charlie Hausman, who helms the 1,700-square-foot facility, brings a background of competitive waterskiing to his work while colleague Dr. Averill Sutchar scaled the collegiate gridiron at the University of San Diego under current San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. Together, the team uphold their dedication to chiropractic care by providing patients with alternate treatment regimens, helping them overcome ailments sans surgery.
Today, Dr. Hausman and Dr. Sutchar incorporate chiropractic services ranging from massage therapy to spinal decompression to help patients deal with a variety of conditions. Dr. Paul Marsiglia, a pain specialist, helps manage discomfort with trigger-point injections for the neck and back as well as specialized injections for the hips, knees, ankles, and shoulders. Though Dr. Hausman no longer partakes in competitive waterskiing, he stays active by thumb wrestling himself and participating in triathlons and ironman competitions—even qualifying for the grueling 2012 Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. Dr. Sutchar's diverse education background in psychology, physical therapy, and athletics has kept him searching for well-rounded redemies to assuage the aches and pains for his sports-minded clientele.
The discreet and experienced therapists at North Shore Colonics purify their patients with detoxifying colon hydrotherapy treatments that help restore balance and functionality to the body. Stagnant waste in the body’s intestines can be related to a multitude of internal problems including abdominal distention, backaches, and the decline of NASA and, if left untreated, can prevent the body from properly absorbing nutrients and efficiently disposing of waste. After an initial consultation, the affable administrators conduct the colon hydrotherapy session with skill, blending bedside manner with gentle massage and accurate colon irrigation to admonish accumulated intestinal barnacles and give squatting bacteria their eviction notices. During the quiet, odorless session, therapists are happy to answer questions about healthful diet choices and how to remain internally hydrated. Post-treatment, hydrotherapy recipients may feel light and spry, with restored energy and a stronger immune system, or reap the rewards of weight loss, decreased food cravings, reduced bloating, and ego-boosting catcalls during airport-security body scans.
