At ChiroCenter, chiropractic physician Avani Shah not only makes clients more comfortable with the latest techniques and equipment—including electrical muscle stimulation, microcurrent treatments, and infrared-laser therapy—she welcomes them to a slew of complimentary amenities. Guests sip freshly brewed coffee or bottled water and nosh on healthy snacks while awaiting their appointment for an adjustment or nutrition consultation. Her treatment chairs are ergonomic, and therefore reduce stress and discomfort as effectively as footie pajamas.
Her approach focuses on ferreting out the root cause of her client’s pain, and then advising them on making lifestyle changes based on her findings to help them lead a more balanced and healthy life. She treats conditions including sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries.
Park Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic’s team of chiropractors takes a multidisciplinary approach to health. Their three-step chiropractic process’ first goal is to relieve immediate pain, then to correct underlying problems to promote healing, and finally keep patients healthy with periodic checkups. This process is carried out by the chiropractors’ range of techniques and equipment, which includes traditional spinal adjustments, a precise Pro-Adjuster computerized spinal adjustment system, and acupuncture.
• For $49, you get five chiropractic-adjustment sessions (a $150 value). • For $109, you get 10 chiropractic-adjustment sessions and one 30-minute deep-tissue massage (a $330 value). Dr. Bill Smith helms Smith Chiropractic with a devotion to accessible healthcare, quality patient services, and a tranquil, healing atmosphere. Nestled amid Asian-inspired bamboo décor, the lobby's water fountain produces tranquil music for visitors as they check in. Within a private therapy room, Dr. Bill listens to patients as they detail their treatment goals, then administers a chiropractic adjustment to assuage back aches, stiffness, and the spine's envy of stegosaurus spikes. The adjustment gently moves the spine beyond its normal range of motion, exercising the extremes of the back's natural movement abilities in a controlled manipulation. Groupon users opting for 10 spine-straightening sessions pair up with a licensed massage therapist for a 30-minute deep-tissue massage after one of their adjustments. Therapists employ dexterous fingers and disc-whispering skills to work stress, tension, and embedded footballs out of muscles.
The practices of chiropractic care, acupuncture, traditional medicine, and overall wellness find a nexus in Doctor of Chiropractic Tariq Ahmed, who heads Roselle Chiropractic and is also on staff at St. Alexius Medical Center. He and his staff treat back pain, muscular strain, sciatica, and other ailments with gentle, low-force techniques. They also perform gait analysis, in-house rehabilitation, personal training services, and Revitalight light therapy to provide patients with comprehensive wellness.
The team of doctors at Lifetime Health and Wellness Clinic helps clients maintain and heal their bodies with a variety of nonsurgical procedures, slimming Lipo-Light treatments to chiropractic adjustments. During Lipo-Light treatments, lipolysis breaks down stored fat cells, releasing fat into the blood stream. Clients later assist in flushing fat from the body with exercise, which can result in inch loss.
In addition to body slimming services, health experts perform traditional chiropractic adjustments to ease chronic pain. Another option is ultrasound therapy, which eases joint and muscle pain with high-energy sound waves, as well as natural pain-relieving injections. If neither of those treatments are right for the job, electrical impulses can be sent into certain parts of the body to block pain signals.
The clinic also tends to overall wellness with blood tests, internal medicine care, and weight-loss programs that teach clients how to eat healthy and extract all the carbs from bread.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight, growing to more than 250 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude. At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
