Chiropractic Care & Sports Rehab, Inc. proves there's much more to chiropractic care than spinal adjustments. While the doctors who operate the clinic certainly know how to apply corrective pressure to address many orthopedic issues, they also have many other tools to turn to. For example, Dr. Lily Liu practices acupuncture, a discipline she studied in a respected Chinese university. Massage therapist MollieShea Stephens adds Swedish and deep-tissue massage to the mix, and Dr. Gina Scognamiglio, a certified chiropractic sports physician, can help patients develop a "chiropersonal fitness" regimen. Dr. Josh Browning values collaboration with other healthcare providers, combining the knowledge of a range of physicians to give patients the best possible care.
With a master's degree in Chinese medicine from Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture, acupuncturist Heather Wheeler strives to relieve pain and discomfort by redirecting chi (energy flow) at the behest of thin needles gently placed under the skin. Each treatment is preceded by a 90-minute initial consultation, during which she discusses the patient's past and present health issues in terms of Chinese medicinal practice. Once she has an idea of what needs to be done, she gingerly slides the disposable needles under the skin and allows the patient to relax for 20 minutes in a private room. She then removes the needles and performs further feats of chi legerdemain, which may include tui na (Chinese massage), gua sha (gentle skin abrasion), and nanna nanna boo boo (the technique of mocking pain until it dissipates in shame). The first acupuncture appointment lasts about 1.5 hours, and the follow-up appointment is only an hour, barring unforeseen needle thievery committed by the knitting club next door.
The board-certified medical professionals at Citrin Chiropractic Center deftly knead the knots out of muscles and meticulously examine skeletal alignments for pain-causing irregularities. A 60-minute swedish massage propels waves of relaxation throughout the body, soothing aching joints and ligaments with movable pressure, vibration, friction, and compression enacted along the body’s muscles and soft tissues. The benefits of massage are numerous and can include chronic-pain relief and a greater range of flexibility and motion for high-fiving parade stilt walkers. During the chiropractic exam, one of the center’s chiropractors will thoroughly inspect your spine’s function and structure for abnormalities that rattle the nervous system and cause the body to spontaneously break-dance. The chiropractors scan physiques for nerve interference, which may be the culprit behind a range of ailments, such as neck and back pain or headaches.
Maureen Fox Acupuncture's needle-wielder draws on experience as a registered nurse as well as training in traditional Chinese medicine to battle stress and chronic conditions with acupuncture. Initial sessions last approximately 90 minutes, beginning with a consultation in which patients describe health concerns and expectations through a half-hour interpretive dance. Afterward, skilled hands guide hair-thin needles to some of the roughly 2,000 acupuncture points across the body that can ease anxiety, bolster fertility, and increase the energizing flow of chi.
