Doctor of Chiropractic Shawn Sizemore presides over a practiced crew of licensed massage therapists that brings more than 40 years of combined know-how to Kentuckiana’s curative kneadings. Having spent his childhood in nearby Irvington, Dr. Sizemore brings a local’s charm to each appointment that, when coupled with his demonstrable chiropractic wisdom, sets his patients’ minds immediately at ease. When he and his staff aren’t massaging muscles to hasten the body’s convalescence from weeklong Simon Says tournaments led by snakes, their noninvasive chiropractic treatments work to realign disks and promote overall health. With its emphasis on holistic well-being, chiropractic care can prove effective in healing such diverse ailments as headaches, hip pain, poor circulation, and sinus problems.
With the vision of becoming the region’s leader in natural-health solutions, Doctor of Chiropractic Gabe Spruch and his wife, Sherrie, started All Care Health and Rehabilitation Center. Now joined by Doctor of Chiropractic Keith Wein and a full staff, they use advanced x-ray techniques and chiropractic care to get to the root of patients’ myriad symptoms, such as achy joints, headaches, or detachable backbones. In addition to bringing spines into alignment, Dr. Spruch helps balance energy points as a licensed acupuncturist, specializing in both needle and non-needle techniques. Both he and Dr. Wein also counsel patients on nutrition and exercise to keep bodies in tip-top shape.
Since 2001, Drs. Eric McAllister and David Vaughn have straightened spines and reduced discomfort through nonsurgical services that seek out the root cause of pain instead of just symptoms. Both doctors' wellness philosophy follows the belief that all health issues stem from three causes: physical trauma, mental stress, and environmental pollutants, such as water-borne toxins or radio stations that broadcast only free jazz.
To combat the three-headed Cerberus of discomfort, Dr. McAllister and Dr. Vaughn offer comprehensive body-soothing services that range from massage to chiropractic adjustments. The doctors fortify their commitment to patient education through innovative treatments and tools such as the spine simulator.
Since 1978, Lillian Holliger has preached the benefits of colon hydrotherapy, eventually opening her own specialized practice in 1991. Today, she offers clients more than 34 years of experience in helping men and women cleanse their systems. Clients step into a comfortable private treatment room, where they receive a gentle rush of water into the large intestine that purges toxins and swallowed coin collections, as well as strengthening the colon muscles. Lillian supplements the approximately 60-minute sessions with relaxing reflexology and reiki treatments.
Doctor of Chiropractic Troy Willis helms Live Well Chiropractic and Lifestyle, where he teams up with life strategist Kelly Cline and a staff of fitness gurus to help customers live well. Dr. Troy was initially introduced to chiropractic while in high school, where he was intrigued by the whole-body approach to health and wellness. Now, having practiced for more than 9 years, he emphasizes an approach that begins with listening to the patient's needs and concerns before recommending one of the clinic's many services or an evening of smashing beer bottles on the side of a building. Clients can opt for a hands-free massage with jade rollers, chiropractic treatments to realign spines, personally tailored nutrition programs, or group fitness classes.
An active member of the local healthcare community, HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab‘s Doctor of Chiropractic Neil Langschied speaks and presents on topics such as fibromyalgia, industrial safety, and stress. He teaches people how to improve golf performance by adjusting their swing and informs them that continuing to teach the neighborhood kids how to slam dance will likely result in neck pain and stiffness.
He further educates patients at the clinic, showing them that a combination of chiropractic care and progressive rehab is best for targeting both the joints and the muscular system. This approach can relieve symptoms of a number of ailments, including carpal tunnel, migraines, and scoliosis.
