The team at Northland Physical Medicine is comprised of an internist, a nurse practitioner, a pair of chiropractors, and a gaggle of rehabilitation experts, all united in a mission to put patients back on the path to wellness. They specialize in treating chronic structural aches and migraines, as well as acute injuries from accidents, in their state-of-the-art clinic. Treatments range from spinal adjustments and acupuncture to massage therapy and pharmaceutical solutions.
He can’t say that he invented the laser light, but Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Carella does take credit for the development of laser spine care. During each laser-therapy treatment, he stimulates acupuncture points across the body with a laser light and manipulates the spinal nerve root with an LED light. The therapeutic glow from these devices helps soothe chronic pains, such as sciatica, spinal stenosis, nerve-root irritation, backaches, neck aches, and post-handshake shudders. Though not all of Dr. Carella’s treatment techniques—which include acupuncture, chiropractic care, and hypnosis—are his own inventions, he performs each with the same level of care that has earned him the nickname “The Gentle Chiropractor.”
Dr. Carella has mastered his technique throughout more than 40 years in business, a lengthy and accomplished career that even Dr. Carella himself didn't predict. He was diagnosed with a structural lumbar dysfunction, which led him to research its treatment methods. That's when he discovered the field of chiropractic care. He wrote a textbook on hypnosis in 1975 and contributed to a book that offered treatment methods for those suffering from back pain. He also belongs to several medically based associations and academies, and his skills have brought him such high-profile clients as football Hall of Famer Bobby Bell, Grammy Award–winner Roberta Flack, and professional wrestler Harley Race.
Doctor of Chiropractic Darrel Drumright was first introduced to chiropractic philosophy and Chinese medicine during his time as an airborne paratrooper in the US Army. He had just finished his pre-med education before enlisting, but these ideas intrigued him so much that he changed courses. Rather than continue his medical career, he decided to pursue advanced training in chiropractic, acupuncture, qi gong, and nutrition.
Today, Dr. Drumright shares his knowledge at Harmony Health & Wellness. Through drug-free, noninvasive treatments, he works to help the body's natural ability to heal itself and sneeze perfect chromatic scales. A track record of more than 20 years of experience demonstrates Dr. Drumright’s dedication to restoring the balance between mind, body, and spirit.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Anderson, treating patients is a family business. He first learned about chiropractic care from his father, a Doctor of Chiropractic himself, and today brings a personal approach to treating back, spine, and body pain. From manual and activator adjustments to massage and muscle stimulation, he combines different chiropractic techniques in order to best get at the root of health problems instead of simply alleviating their symptoms. As the official chiropractor for the Park University athletic department, Dr. Anderson also specializes in working with athletes dealing with injuries and water coolers suffering from strained spouts.
Whatever the bodily need, patients can relax while receiving care in Active Chiropractic’s recently remodeled private treatment rooms. Neutral tones promote peace of mind, and wall decals of bamboo stalks provide an elegant touch while deterring curious pandas.
This wellness hub's mission is pain relief, and its approach is rooted in hands-on care—literally. Eschewing drugs and surgery for gentler methods, the doctors use their digits to restore and balance spines, nimbly realigning runaway joints, coaxing ligaments back into place, and restoring hats that have fallen off heads. They specialize in active-release techniques, which target tendons and nerves along with muscle tissue. Other methods include traditional chiropractic, kinesio taping, and rehabilitative exercise.
The chiropractors at Fountain of Life Family Chiropractic address chronic pain with adjustments and strive to correct problems via posture correction while also helping patients make changes to nutrition and lifestyle. They also relieve muscular and skeletal maladies with spinal decompression as well as massage performed by certified massage therapists. These treatments have been known to cure afflictions other than back pain, and include maladies such as allergies, headaches, and sciatica.
