Nikitow Wellness Center's Dr. Dennis Nikitow and his crew of professional spine soothers realign bodily imbalances with advanced technologies and holistic healing practices. Commencing with a discussion of past injuries and trauma, the 45-minute spinal-and-kinesiology exam helps determine the stability of Jenga-stacked vertebrae by examining clients’ postures, range of motion, and flexibility. If necessary, x-rays will be taken to expose additional issues before the doctor breaks down his findings during a second appointment, when he’ll also reveal a daring plan of attack for reducing tension, decreasing pain, and straightening muscular configurations that resemble a Venn diagram.
Most of the staff members at Heritage Health share one major similarity: they aim to heal. But depending on which treatment you choose, they attack health problems from completely different angles. When Western medicine needs an extra boost, the acupuncturist steps in to soothe pain and stave off illness with the traditional Chinese treatment. Additionally, Doctors of Chiropractic Timothy Nelson and Paul Marmalick both trust adjustments to assuage sore or aching bodies, and a physical therapist will team up with the chiropractors to help rehabilitate clients after injuries.
Discover Health & Wellness's staff of chiropractors and massage therapists is dedicated to boosting clients’ overall well-being by building relationships and facilitating education. Initial consultations and noninvasive tests help discover undetected nerve damage or vertebrae playing musical chairs, allowing doctors to adjust spines and therapists to massage muscles with technical precision. The doctors themselves can vouch for the efficacy of chiropractic care. As a young man, Doctor of Chiropractic Cameron Hall worked on ski patrol. As he explains in his bio video, skiing for 10 hours a day took a hard-hitting toll on his back and knees, and nearly laid him low. Happily, a chiropractor on staff set his spine straight, saving him from a life bereft of his favorite hobbies, including rock climbing and river rafting. The experience inspired him to become a chiropractor.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
We think beauty is both internal and external. When you feel beautiful on the inside, you exude that beauty outside. Taking care of yourself inside and out is so important. We offer services such as Zerona, facials, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal to help with the outer beauty?but we also offer chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, ionic foot detoxes, and more to help clients take care of themselves on the inside as well.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
We love the Zerona treatments. We've been providing Zerona treatments for almost five years now, and our clients have seen life-changing results in that time. People are skeptical when they come in, but thrilled when they leave. The Zerona laser does exactly what it is FDA-approved to do?shrink fat cells. When the treatments are provided correctly and with the proper support, it's amazing what Zerona can do for clients' bodies in a short amount of time. Our laser providers are certified, experienced, and meticulous in giving these treatments and in providing information to maximize client results. We're extremely proud of our facility, the team of professionals we've put together, and the results our clients get.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
We hear daily how thrilled clients are from treatments. For example, first thing this morning, a client called to say that she was "strutting around her house feeling sexy." She was wearing a pair of pants to work today that she hasn't fit in for the past four years, and she just wanted to share that with us. She isn't even finished with her Zerona package she signed up for. Calls and remarks like that happen daily for us, and we all enjoy celebrating right along with our clientele.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We are not a chain and you are not a number to us. We also aren't a company that just started offering Zerona to take advantage of the trend. We are a small, family-owned-and-operated business that was one of the first Zerona providers in the state of Colorado. We make every client who walks in the door feel pampered and special. It's a warm, comfortable, friendly environment, and we take great pride in the care we provide.
After receiving his MBA and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Chris Tomshack opened his own practice. But one wasn't enough. He needed a real challenge, so he opened two more—all while studying the successes of other industries. With this knowledge and experience stowed safely in his hippocampus's glovebox, he eventually launched his own nationwide franchise: HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab.
Today, his chiropractors work alongside massage therapists and rehab experts as they craft custom action plans to help their patients overcome common ailments—such as neck pain and headaches—as well as severe conditions. Their Progressive Rehab method combines chiropractic techniques with rehabilitation therapies to relieve nerve pressure and pain. When they aren't nudging rebellious vertebrae, staffers stock a gourmet coffee bar with complimentary treats that always know just what to say.
Contrary to popular belief, chiropractic adjustments weren't initially used to eliminate back pain. Chiropractic's founder, D.D. Palmer, actually performed the first adjustment on a man who went deaf after feeling a pop in his back. The adjustment by Palmer realigned his spine and helped the man regain his hearing.
Littleton Chiropractic's Doctor of Chiropractic Brad Bourne hopes to continue to help alleviate problems caused by misaligned vertebrae, following in the footsteps of both Palmer and Dr. Bourne's own grandfather, who was also a chiropractor. Dr. Bourne adjusts misaligned spines to ease everything from carpal tunnel syndrome to headaches, and he often uses a decompression table. This device works to heal herniated or injured discs by relieving the pressure placed on them by other discs.
