Walk-In Chiropractic's licensed back whisperer eschews appointments and makes careful adjustments that help destress any overworked human chassis that wanders into the office. Because each back carries its own special story, Walk-In Chiropractic customizes the treatment to suit every spine's special needs.
The team at Health Source Ogden Chiropractors Group helps patients find relief from pain and other ailments through spinal adjustments and a whole-person approach to wellness. By hunting down the root cause of patients' health problems, which can often be traced to a misalignment of the vertebrae, the chiropractors are able to treat the problem at its source, rather than mask it with pharmaceuticals or masking tape. In addition to recalibrating wayward spines, the staff also helps patients ward off future hurts with corrective exercises, and teaches them to fuel their bodies efficiently with nutritional counseling.
Dr. Kris Davis and Dr. Daniel Davenport of Spinal Care Center of Utah bolster clients’ back and bodily health through holistically focused chiropractic treatments. Spinal columns undergo careful scrutiny during consultations in which the docs chart complaints and conduct orthopedic, neurologic, and spinal examinations, taking all necessary x-rays to check for bone stability and souvenir seashells posing as vertebrae. Their massages simultaneously unload muscle-held stresses and unwind tissue knots, while their K-Laser saturates tissues with a combination of specific wavelengths of light that help biostimulate body repair. These stimulating sessions can increase natural bodily processes to accelerate tissue repair, improve vascular activity, and speed recovery from whiplash incurred at the office’s annual rolling-chair demolition derby.
Hawaii. A boy dives off a cliff into shallow water and loses his eyesight after impact. Over the next months, the boy undergoes acupuncture treatments with Dr. Maekawa. As the doctor arranges the needles that restore blood flow to the boy's injured areas, her apprentice, Regan Archibald, watches closely. When the boy's eyes fill with vision again, Archibald understands the power of Chinese medicine to heal the body.
In 2004, Regan Archibald opened East West Health in Salt Lake City. He draws together complementary aspects of Eastern and Western medicine with the help of a medical doctor and nurse practitioner on staff. Together, they use acupuncture, clinical testing, and nutrition programs to treat disparate ailments, from anxiety and allergies to tennis elbow and whack-a-mole shoulder. According to Archibald, many patients are surprised to learn that acupuncture and ancient herbal medicine can also remedy gastrointestinal disorders, such as chronic diverticulitis.
Three times a year, Regan Archibald leaves the bamboo plants and earth tones of his clinic to return to Hawaii on a raft made of needles and mugwort. On the same island where he watched Dr. Maekawa restore a boy's eyesight, he broadens his knowledge of Chinese medicine and hones his skills in acupuncture modalities such as seitai shinpo. Archibald is one of only 13 certified practitioners of seitai shinpo, a method centered on the spine and its network of nerves.
