A practicing chiropractor since 1986, Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Musich supplements traditional chiropractic techniques with innovative and advanced solutions. For instance, to treat lower- and midback and neck pain, the doc might enlist the Gonstead method of chiropractic care, designed specifically to correct spinal misalignments. The gentle electrical currents of electro-acuscope, meanwhile, can catalyze the healing of injured tissues for quicker relief of torn muscles, tendonitis, and ligament sprains. Perhaps Dr. Musich’s best-known service, however, is neurocranial restructuring. By inflating a small balloon inside the nostril and throat, the doctor can “unlock” specific areas of the skull, resulting in relief from a variety of conditions ranging from TMJ to Alzheimer’s.
Drs. Nicole and Dave Conragan discovered chiropractic care separately but have practiced it together for more than 15 years. Nicole's passion for her field began after chiropractic adjustments dramatically changed her life by lessening her asthma and allergies, and Dave's developed as he was treated for injuries sustained as a competitive weightlifter. Now the husband-and-wife team works together to educate patients, encouraging them to play an active role in their own treatment, and aids families, competitive athletes, and professional coffee tables in optimizing their health.
Goldi Jacques-Maynes, the almost-eponymous founder of Golden Chiropractic, draws on knowledge gleaned while training with leading authorities in sports chiropractic medicine to keep spines happy, healthy, and pliable. Before administering customized treatments, the licensed chiropractor first gets to know her patients through a medical history overview that accounts for past injuries and part-time jobs with Sisyphean construction crews. X-rays afford an internal peek at the spine’s going-ons, and adjustments relieve sublaxations before Dr. Jacques-Maynes calls upon activator adjusting instruments, electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound therapy to correct ailing discs.
The center’s resident massage therapists, Monica and Nancy Ferreira, supplement chiropractic treatments with massage techniques cultivated during hours of training. Whether gliding across backs with Swedish-style strokes or placing warm rocks in areas of built-up pressure, Monica and Nancy work to reduce muscle tension and increase joints’ range of motion.

In-Line Chiropractic founder Dr. Krista (Hawes) Healy draws on more than 11 years of professional experience to oversee healing at her multifunctional practice. The center's massage therapists relax and realign tense muscles and charm snaky spinal cords with an array of methodologies, and a resident hypnotherapist helps clients shake physical and emotional ailments using the power of suggestion. Nutritionists prompt healthier lifestyles by offering everything from dietary consultations to detoxification packages, and staff also administers drug tests, health physicals for students, and DMV physicals to fulfill work requirements for firefighters, taxi drivers, or bumper-car chauffeurs.
