At Scott Medical Health Center, a multidisciplinary team promotes wellness with traditional medicine, holistic alternatives, and advanced diagnostic testing technology. The staff—which includes three physicians, three doctors of chiropractic, and a licensed physical therapist—believes health issues stem from three major areas: trauma from falls or injuries, everyday stress, and toxins found in food, water, and slowly absorbed heavy-metal lyrics. To uncover and address malfunctions of the spine and nervous system, the crew offers orthopedic and neurological testing and services such as laser therapy and rehabilitation exercise on state-of-the-art equipment. Those looking to shed extra pounds may enlist the staff of Scott's Medical Weight Loss Program, where astute technicians and counselors oversee medically supervised weight-loss programs, administer fat-burning vitamin-B12 injections, prescribe appetite-control medication, and dish out nutritional counseling.
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.
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.
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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Daniel Nugent has given more than just his name to the practice formerly known as Newman Chiropractic Center. After nearly a decade in private practice, the chiropractic doctor has arrived at the holistic philosophy that now governs all of the center’s healthcare treatments. Rather than opt for surgical remedies, Dr. Nugent prefers non-invasive techniques that identify the root cause of bodily pain and treat the body as a complex, integrated organism.
Versed in specialized CBP training, Dr. Nugent returns vertebrates to their preordained pecking order and eases the effects of sports injuries with advanced spine-correcting techniques. After a personal consultation and physical examination, he devises a treatment plan that may pair traditional spinal adjustments with exercise and nutritional advice. In addition to his normal hours, Dr. Nugent offers evening appointments to accommodate nine-to-fivers just waking from daylong naps in cramped cubicle drawers.
