Doctor of Chiropractic Shawn Richey strives to transform bodies at Chiropractic Family Health Center using chiropractic care and weight-loss treatments. Through spinal adjustments, massages, exercises, and nutritional counseling, he leads his patients down a path of wellness in his friendly, welcoming clinic. Dr. Richey, a specialist in sports chiropractics, helps analyze golf-swing biomechanics to improve swings and prevent injury, and he is the official chiropractor of the Pittsburgh Passion football team, which he treats without heckling or pointing foam fingers at players. He also helps bolster weight-loss efforts with Zerona laser treatments and the ChiroThin program's HCG supplements.
Between the chiropractic doctor and two nurse practitioners at Wexford Wellness CARE, enough knowledge exists to offer a range of nontraditional pain treatments. Chiropractic adjustments can ease not only physical pain, but also chemical and emotional. The same is true of acupuncture—which grows from Chinese medicinal routes and uses internal energy to align bodies—and massage, which can assuage stress and aches. Physical therapy, on the other hand, focuses on physical injuries, working to build up muscles and phonographs to their former glory.
Dr. Justin Scott might contest the phrase, "practice makes perfect." He believes that even the utmost dedication won't upgrade your golf swing to its maximum potential; to reach that plateau, you need to eliminate physical limitations of the body. At Pittsburgh Golf Fitness, he merges his expertise as a Certified Golf-Fitness Instructor and a Certified Titleist Medical Professional, creating individualized programs that focus on common physical hindrances.
First, he assesses each client with 13 physical screenings. These help identify the most pertinent problems in the way of improved golf performances, such as decreased shoulder mobility or a constantly piggybacking caddy. He then builds a custom fitness regimen out of techniques from the Titleist Performance Institute. These various stretches, strength exercises, and functional drills aim to offset specific weaknesses and perfect the kinematic sequence—the correct order in which parts of the body should pass through the plane of the ball during a swing. His programs can benefit players of all experience levels, with maneuvers performed at home, in the gym, or in the private facilities of Scott Spine and Rehabilitation Center, where Scott acts as the doctor on call.
He may have adjusted NFL players and professional baseball players and rearranged Oscar-winning spines on major film sets, but those aren't the only ways Doctor of Chiropractic Dubyak puts his skills to use. To supplement his many talents, Dr. Dubyak is also a specialist in nutrition counseling and estimates he's created hundreds of personalized diet and exercise plans for clients of all sorts, including those who are allergic to diet and exercise plans. His other specialties include sports rehabilitation, TMJ, and migraine relief. And to bolster his degrees in sports medicine, biology, and chiropractic practice, Dr. Dubyak stays on top of his game with postgrad education and ongoing explorations in the world of nutrition science.

Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Peter G. Peduzzi, the staff at American Back Centers helps relieve patients of their back pain and move them toward greater health. Taking a starring role in their roster of treatments is VAX-D therapy, which treats lower-back pain by reducing pressure in spinal discs. In addition to chiropractic care, the physician-directed team offers physical therapy, acupressure, and massage therapy, allowing clients to get back on their feet quickly so they can return to the daily grind of throwing anvils.
