At their five offices across Columbus, Inner Health Chiropractic's doctors take a preventive approach to wellness, eschewing conventional methods that only tackle problems after they've developed. Instead, the practitioners focus on developing a comprehensive wellness plan for each client with the goal of preventing, not merely treating, illness and pain. Encompassing lifestyle, nutrition, and exercise, treatments run the gamut from spinal adjustment and physiotherapy to food counseling and personalized pinky-toe massage.
The team of doctors, specialists, and therapists at Beecher Wellness Center uses a diverse palette of cutting-edge treatments and natural alternatives in treating physical maladies along the spine and nervous system. Initial examinations reveal musculoskeletal imbalances as well as missing CDs that slipped between vertebrae. At subsequent visits, patients might lie atop the hydro-massage table, which warms up muscles and relaxes joints all over the body with jets of hot water, or lie under lasers that help stimulate damaged tissue to repair itself. Non-surgical Disc Force Spinal Decompression therapy relieves issues such as back pain, herniated discs, degenerative joint disease, and cheek nerves pinched by elderly relatives over the holidays. The process gently restores space between crowded bones according to the exact measurements of a computer, and helps to rehydrate each vertebra with water, oxygen, and nutrients.
Beecher Wellness Center also offers custom medical massage therapy, acupuncture, and other treatments. Technicians harness the LZR7 Laser Allergy Relief system to help alleviate food, seasonal, and environmental allergy symptoms. BrainCore Therapy offers a drugless, non-invasive method to develop customized solutions to neurological conditions such as ADD/ADHD, migraine, memory loss, learning disorders, insomnia, anxiety, fibromyalgia, autism, and more.
The doctors at Premier Chiropractic Centers circumvent the potential hazards of surgery and medications with non-invasive chiropractic techniques. Each doctor is an expert in the back and neck and tracks down subluxations in the spine that can cause pain or numbness virtually anywhere in the body. With a combination of massages, gentle adjustments, and physical therapy, the doctors nudge slipped discs into healthier positions. Aside from hands-on treatments, the doctors also dole out nutritional advice and outfit feet with custom orthotics designed to promote straighter posture.
West Point-educated Dr. James E. Hicks served in the U.S Army and U.S Army Reserves before settling in at Hicks Chiropractic & Healing Arts Center as a licensed chiropractor. He is also a family herbalist, has a naturopathic medical doctor degree, and is a contributing author of two books that deal with alleviating neck pain. His wellness-based services also include Lipo-Light body sculpting, massage therapy, and nutritional assessments.
The trained staff of aestheticians at A New U all work together to personalize treatments with an integrative approach to health and beauty. Known for an emphasis on noninvasive skincare procedures and a custom approach that never fails to account for individual circumstances, the staff treats the body inside and out with services that range from nutritional counseling to skin rejuvenation. Karin Finch performs facial services from microdermabrasion treatments to glycolic peels in order to reduce fine lines, minimize the appearance of pores, and smooth the complexion. The center’s advanced laser and cosmetic procedures, which include nonsurgical injections of Botox, Dysport, and Restylane, work to erase wrinkles from complexions and shoo away crows nesting in the corners of eyes.
The sounds of stretch-induced groans and enthusiastic high-fives echo throughout the workout rooms at New World Fitness, an all-purpose facility that opens its doors to members of any age and fitness level. Though each of the gym’s group fitness classes blends a results-oriented workout with a healthy dose of social interaction, the similarities tend to end there. Toning workouts such as the Ab Blaster target core muscles with short, intense exercises—a marked contrast to the relaxed stretches of a yoga session that slowly eases tension out of overworked limbs. Feet lead the way through aerobics classes based on the movements of martial arts and dance. The gym’s indoor pool hosts an aquatic-therapy program alongside joint-friendly Aquafit classes, after which guests can dry off with a sprint around the indoor track.
