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.
Dr. Azad and Associates, strive to accommodate families at Familia Dental, with time slots for working parents on evenings and Saturdays and an indoor play area for youngsters at this preventive and cosmetic practice. Its orthodontics, whitening services, and traditional dentistry finesse the smiles of both kids and adults using technology such as a digital x-ray machine, which releases 80% less radiation than its analog counterparts and 90% less radiation than Spiderman’s big toe.
