HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
As a chiropractor with more than 12 years of experience, Dr. William Civello knows that doctors don’t heal the body; the body heals itself. He assists this self-healing process by ensuring all the nerves in the body are operating uninhibited by slipped disks in the spine, which can disrupt internal communication. Wielding an arsenal of x-rays and heat-reading equipment that can pinpoint these disruptions, he designs treatment plans suited to each patient. During treatment, he incorporates gentle noninvasive adjustments to free nerve pressure, relax tense muscles, and allow the body to be free with abundant energy.
No man is an island, and neither are spines. Each vertebra connects to organs and nerves throughout the body—a physiological fact that informs Doctor of Chiropractic Richard Johnson’s approach to wellness. A licensed chiropractor, he views spinal health as inextricably linked to full-body wellness. With that in mind, he and his team at Bloomfield Chiropractic Center complement their traditional chiropractic adjustments with an array of health services. They enhance diets with vitamin supplements and nutritional counseling and soothe muscles with massages and PEMF treatments, whose electromagnetic waves can reduce inflammation and speed each cell’s self-repair process.
Dr. Alan Migdalewicz’s chiropractic expertise and Dr. Debbie Nicholson’s alternative medicine skills join forces at A & L Chiropractic Center.

Part of Michigan Spine & Joint Center's integrative-medicine team, chiropractors Thomas J. Neuner, DC and Adebowale Adegbenro, DC—known by his patients as Dr. Debo—help clients to attain optimal mobility by facilitating proper back and neck alignment. During first visits, the doctors use diagnostic tools such as x-rays to identify the source of each patient's discomfort. Based on their findings, the doctors tailor recommendations that may include therapies such as spinal manipulation by MSJC's rehabilitation specialists. These care plans help to relieve accumulated spinal compression, allowing patients to remember where they put their car keys seven years ago.
