Twenty-thousand clients. Twenty years. David M. Salse?s experience as a doctor of chiropractic jumps out like a cubicle on the beach. However, his current career began literally by accident. After he was injured in a car crash, Salse sought treatment from a chiropractor?and his striking recovery sparked his interest in the practice. He went on to graduate with honors from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, and now he?s a national- and state-board-certified chiropractic physician and public speaker, seeking to give others similar relief through a range of services, including his specialty: chiropractic with massage.
At Salse Chiropractic Center, they use five massage modalities to alleviate pain caused by everyday stressors, injuries caused by work, sports, or auto accidents, and general fatigue and joint pain. He also performs chiropractic adjustments, leads therapeutic exercise sessions, and makes use of alternative techniques such as TENS therapy and electrical muscle stimulation, which aim to heal muscles using their own signals. As a man of science?Salse earned his undergrad in biology and started out as a professional chemist?it?s no surprise that he and his team of health care specialists diagnose issues with x-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs, and correct chronic problems with products such as custom orthotics. The center can receive clients for same-day emergency appointments, and backs up all services with a satisfaction guarantee as genuine as a free-hug coupon from a grandma.
Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Glenn Swart has mastered an array of chiropractic techniques to assist his practice's holistic approach to healing. Beyond manual adjustments, he can identify the locations of spinal joint dysfunction by observing the joints with motion palpation. Practice also uses state of the art physiotherapy equipment to assist with their treatments.
From professional athletes to months-old babies, the chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists at All Pro Health Center use their expertise to maximize wellness and body function. The center is the official sports-medicine and health-care center for both the California Quake women's tackle-football team and the Pacific Warriors women's professional football organization, and resident Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Feng has an extensive background in sports medicine. After training at UCLA as a member of the Bruins' sports-medicine program, Dr. Feng served on the medical teams of both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Kansas City Chiefs. His voice may sound familiar from the local radio shows in which he discusses developments in the field of sports medicine, such as solar-powered athletic benches that warm themselves.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and needle-free acupuncture, Dr. Feng and his colleagues treat sports injuries or everyday ailments with a range of manual and high-tech therapies. A certified practitioner performs active-release techniques, a patented soft tissue-based massage system that alleviates pain emanating from overused muscles. The crew also offers relief via physical therapy, kinesiotaping, and cold-laser therapy.
Deftly directed by their respective doctors, the staffs of these six slimming-centers harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for up to 45 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Doctors of Chiropractic Pevey and Phifer care for their patients by folding formal medical training into a lifetime of personal experience. Dr. Pevey was in high school when chiropractic treatments helped heal a football injury that hadn't responded to medication. Similarly, Dr. Phifer embarked on his career after a chiropractor relieved the back pain that had plagued him for years. A former personal trainer, Dr. Phifer boasts an in-depth understanding of physiology and enjoys working with athletes. He specializes in postural correction, straightening patients' spines without the old-fashioned method of stacking books or horses and buggies atop heads. Building on a shared commitment to holistically minded care, Drs. Pevey and Phifer help heal patients not only with chiropractic treatments but also through massage therapy, sports rehab, and nutritional counseling.
