Although Doctor of Chiropractic Joe Borio of Borio Chiropractic Health Center mainly works with the spine, his treatments are designed to help recover from ailments beyond mere backaches. For one thing, his adjustments have been reported to reduce autism symptoms in children. That's because, when he treats patients, he isn't so much adjusting their back as activating the body's self-healing ability through the spinal cord. Relying on the body itself to do the healing helps patients circumvent riskier forms of healthcare, such as surgery or taking pills on the wing of a biplane.

Before Jonathan Dehors received his doctor of chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College, he received his bachelor of science from Syracuse University. Today his undergraduate studies continue to influence him at Upper Hand Chiropractic, where he and his staff offer science-based services such as adjustments, massage, hot and cold therapy, physiotherapy, and nutritional counseling. Dr. Dehors specializes in treating soft-tissue and sports-related injuries, and he even has a patent pending for a tool to treat soft-tissue problems, which has nothing to do with dipping kleenexes in wet cement.
