Licensed chiropractor Dr. Gary Van Skyhock steers the ship at Universal Treatment and Recovery Center, where he and his staff treat patients using a ?whole person" approach. Instead of simply treating individual symptoms, Dr. Van Skyhock susses out the underlying issues causing pain or discomfort and works to ameliorate these problems via chiropractic treatments and lifestyle adaptations or changes. In line with this thinking, the center offers chiropractic adjustments, nutritional counseling, massage therapy, and postural screenings to ensure optimal nerve flow and overall good health.
The trickling sounds of the lobby’s 7-foot waterfall filter into the private therapy rooms of The Rub Club Massage Studio, enhancing the relaxation of massages administered in a variety of soothing modalities. Chiropractor Jeremy Watson opened the studio in 2009 as an extension of his interest in holistic healing, and his whole-body approach is evident in beds that warm clients with inner heating mechanisms and soft music that plays throughout each treatment session. Although the spa’s music stations feature tunes handpicked to optimize relaxation, therapists encourage clients to plug their own iPods into the dock and play self-recorded soundtracks of doves cooing top 40 hits. While you tap your toes to the beat or lie perfectly still on the massage table, the therapist employs Biofreeze lotion to soothe painful points and Prossage products to further slacken stresses. Aside from the aforementioned waterfall, the lobby also hosts complimentary jugs of fresh water and a Keurig machine for making coffee or tea.
Though his roots (and sports allegiance) are planted in Philly, Dr. Tom Steigerwalt's path to chiropractic medicine took him trekking across the country. His time in Marietta, Georgia found him leaving Life University with magna cum laude status, a degree in chiropractic, and a beautiful wife named Kelly. From there, a one-year internship in St. Cloud, Florida instilled in him a desire to open his own practice and never experience sunburn again, and so he headed north to Avon to found Stags Family Wellness and help Ohioans live lives free of pain. Beyond alleviating back woes through spinal care and massage therapy, and providing peripheral neuropathy pain relief, his practice specializes in helping clients achieve total health through weight loss, and anti-aging treatments.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack founded HealthSource, a network of more than 380 practices across the country, based on his innovative treatment protocols and rehab techniques. One such trademarked therapy is his Progressive Rehab, which works to strengthen the area of the body that is causing the pain, rather than numbing it with medication or introspective lectures on mortality.

When treating headaches, neck pain, and lower-back pain?the predominant source of patient complaints and roller-coaster-technician daydreams?Dr. Fite relies on the diversified technique, which requires manual thrusts of troublesome vertebrae to urge them back into place. His Thompson-method adjustments, meanwhile, involve cradling patients on a specialized table comprised of adjustable spinal supports, which afford greater precision and comfort.
