For more than 25 years, Doctor of Chiropractic Bob Pizzimenti has championed his clients’ own ability to heal themselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. As a self-proclaimed unwinder, Dr. Pizzimenti eschews x-rays and technology-based treatments in favor of a more holistic approach to reducing stress and pain. After assessing his patients with chiropractic consultations and exams that target sources of muscular pain, he performs alternative treatments such as auriculotherapy, chiropractic adjustments, craniosacral therapy, yoga, and massage.
Dr. Pizzimenti also promotes well-being outside of chiropractic treatments at Innate Healing Arts Center. His resident herbalist, Tissheama Pizzimenti, oversees a shop filled with potted plants and shelves lined with traditional medicinal plants and specially concocted herbal remedies. She performs consultations and may prescribe custom-made herb blends or specialty spring water to help flush away toxins or spoil cars during car washes.
Also at the center, Reverend Gwendolyn Hurst leads a range of weekly community events, such as group meditation and holistic-health workshops, and yoga teachers lead welcoming classes. And at the onsite Golden Gate Cafe, the staff serves gourmet vegetarian dishes such as tempeh burgers, falafel, and vegetable stir-fry, with many ingredients sourced from local farms that utilize humane vegetable-growing practices.
At Claddagh Chiropractic Wellness Center, board-certified Doctors of Chiropractic Bridget Devlin and Timothy Murray may prescribe a wide variety of spinal adjustment treatments, such as corrective exercises and massage therapy. The doctors customize each person's treatment path with what they call the "whole person approach," which aims to uncover and corrects the underlying cause for aches, pains, and illness. In addition to pain treatment, doctors also promote overall wellness with preventive care for all ages.
After a back injury downed him on the varsity football field of his high school, David Sinawi sought medical treatment. Thanks to the handiwork of a skilled chiropractor, he soon recovered and discovered a passion that would shape his professional life.
Now the chiropractor behind Complete Spine & Joint Center, he offers his patients the same quality treatment he received, employing diversified chiropractic techniques, massage therapy, and spinal rehabilitation. He also uses lifestyle-advice sessions and nutritional counseling to help patients identify and eliminate unhealthy habits, such as riding on the butler's shoulders to work instead of walking.
One is better than two, but three is better than all of them. So at the Madison Heights Chiropractic Center, a trio of physicians triangulate their knowledge of the human body to identify ailments, ease injuries, and educate clients about healthy living. With a 40-year track record and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Allen Kash sits on the board of the Michigan Chiropractic Society and allies himself with the American Chiropractic Association. His colleague, Dr. Matthew Cohen has a bachelor's degree in kinesiology, a doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic, and over five years of experience. He treats patients with a medley of chiropractic techniques, physiotherapy procedures, rehabilitative exercises, and natural supplementation. Finally, nationally certified massage therapist Phil Schultz aids the spine-straightening process with massage while using an array of techniques, such as Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy, and hot stones. All of his massages can include a complimentary spinal screening, during which the good doctor assesses spinal alignment.
Doctor of Chiropractic Daniel Tominello has been a believer in the healing potential of spinal care since the age of 10, when he received his first chiropractic treatment. Since then, he has gotten taller, graduated from the Life College School of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia, and logged more than 15 years practicing holistic medicine. Dr. Tominello takes satisfaction in helping his patients find relief from pain, and refers them to other healthcare providers when they have an ailment outside of his wheelhouse.
For more than five years, founder of Renaissance Chiropractic Life Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Stephen Upchurch, suffered from lower-back pain and sciatica, often going for days with numb hands and the inability to stand. His standard medical treatment involved taking pills, but these evinced little change in his condition until he submitted himself to chiropractic care. Inspired by his dramatic transformation, Dr. Upchurch entered Life Chiropractic College, where he mastered the spinal-manipulation techniques that helped restore his own health. Dr. Upchurch uses these natural methods to assuage the aches of his clients and continues to receive regular adjustments himself to gird his active lifestyle and prevent his vertebrae from fossilizing. Also available through his practice are nutritional counsel, lifestyle advising, and therapeutic massage.
