Doctors of Chiropractic—and twin brothers—Daniel and David Clements share more in common than their parents, looks, and sentence halves; the two doctors also share the same philosophy on holistic health. Inspiration set in while attending Augsburg College on hockey scholarships, where the Canadian natives noticed the chiropractic treatments they were receiving helped keep them healthy and injury free. Experiencing this proactive approach to wellness motivated the duo to forego their premed path and pursue a chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences instead.
At Twins Chiropractic, the brothers work with clients to find the most beneficial treatment plan, whether through regular adjustments, massages, or both. They also pack their website with informational resources to help patients make informed decisions or wile away the hours on a deserted beach.
Dr. Khanh Tran and his staff operate under a simple premise: the structure of the body determines its function. Dr. Tran keeps this in mind as he runs his hands along his clients’ spines, looking for the telltale subluxations and slipped disks that may signal any number of physical issues. Though these issues run the gamut from chronic discomfort to a freely rotating head, the chiropractic staff consistently relies on an approach that triggers the body’s recuperative abilities with natural, drug-free therapies. The multidisciplined team works as a single unit, combining acupuncture, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling in a program anchored by the doctor’s chiropractic adjustments.
Doctors of Chiropractic Stephanie and Wayne Higashi founded HEALTH ATLAST Fountain Valley to offer their patients multidisciplinary healing with an emphasis on doctor coordination. HEALTH ATLAST Fountain Valley houses a variety of specialties and disciplines because its practitioners tend to clients' ailments with chiropractic care and acupuncture. The health centers also offer therapeutic massage and nutritional counseling.
Dr. Glen R. Cauble sees chiropractic medicine not as a means to fix back pain, but as a gateway to full-body wellness. To that end, he adheres to a three-phase approach, which includes relief care, corrective care, and wellness care during any chiropractic appointment. Ultimately, his goal is to treat the source of the problem as well as the symptoms it presents with chiropractic and rehabilitative services, nutritional guidance, and life counseling. His chiropractic services include advanced spinal adjustments supplemented by massage therapy to alleviate discomfort, and he performs periodic re-evaluations to monitor the treatment's progress. Patients continue their treatment plan outside of the office as well, as the doctor prescribes exercises to perform at home.
Like many kids, Doctor of Chiropractic Steven Peters grew up climbing trees, playing sports, and getting his fair share of injuries. None of them left him debilitated––until he woke up one morning unable to stand up. He was only 17 years old at the time. After one chiropractic adjustment, he walked out of the doctor's office. Though he went on to earn a business degree and have a successful career, he never stopped seeing a chiropractor. The treatments and practitioners nurtured Steve's fascination with the body's innate ability to heal itself. Inspired by this knowledge, Steven enrolled at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, earned his doctorate, and took up his post at Momentum Chiropractic.
At Momentum Chiropractic, he works alongside Dr. Nesrein Sweidan, who learned about acupuncture and Eastern medicine while becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. Together, they help athletes and active patients improve their performance and heal after strenuous activity or really intense sofa naps.
Originally developed by the Soviet Union for cosmonauts, whole-body vibration and its health benefits are now accessible to anyone in short, 10-minute sessions. The device consists of a small platform that clients can stand, sit, or lay on as it vibrates. As muscles contract and work to keep the body in position, clients may see greater muscle tone over time, as well as possible improvements to arthritis, circulation, and flexibility. No change of clothes is necessary, as there tends to be no sweating during sessions, and use of the machine is appropriate for clients of any fitness level.
