Drs. Keith and Rejeana Crystal thrive on the questions “What’s wrong with me?” and “What can I do about it?” Together, the husband-and-wife team field wellness concerns with a range of noninvasive chiropractic treatments, each designed to correct many of the most common ailments, such as headaches, sore back, and women’s issues. Their thorough exams uncover underlying causes of these conditions before they devise custom, drug-free treatment plans to vanquish pain and promote the body’s natural healing.
Human touch and evolving technology commit to teamwork at Carrier Chiropractic, where four doctors aim to conquer recurring aches. They employ classic manual techniques to coax vertebrae back into line, as well as adjustment instruments such as the Impulse, and tables that allow for specialized positioning. Their treatment arsenal also includes low-level lasers, ultrasound therapy, and custom orthotics. During sessions, they prioritize both pain relief and prevention—they believe that chiropractic care should be a long-term habit, and will happily dispense tips for overall wellness and nutrition.
At Vitality Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Vaibhav Patel gets to the root of pain caused by car-accident injuries, sports injuries, and headaches with natural, hands-on services. During visits, Dr. Patel combs through family history before sleuthing over spinal columns in search of bulging disks, signs of poor posture, and vestigial dorsal fins. The doctor checks nerve function and muscle activity with a computerized EMG and a thermography unit, takes applicable x-rays, and lays on dexterous hands for adjustments. During hydrotherapy massages, patients recline in private rooms as a hydro-massage table kneads muscles with roving jets of water underneath a waterproof barrier, keeping bodies dry and coaxing out tension and lodged water wings.
Dr. Carmen April and the attentive staffers of The Foot and Ankle Healthcare Center wipe toe canvases clean of encroaching foot fungus with laser treatments. During the fungus-freeing session, a specialized laser deploys a cascade of light rays across the infected nail bed, which can be caused by athlete’s foot, excessive perspiration, or foot massages from mushrooms. Each heated beam quickly shimmies beneath the keratin surface before throwing a one-two punch that smashes fungi invaders into a dissipating anime dust cloud. The quickly administered treatment painlessly targets all 10 toes without damaging the surrounding skin or nails, and results in healthy, sandal-ready feet.
Although Pro Massage Health Solutions' licensed massage therapists are each trained in multiple modalities, they all specialize in one thing: customizing sessions to suit their clients' needs. They accomplish a truly tailored experience by mixing and matching strokes from their arsenal of approaches. For clients who want a relaxing visit, the staff may focus on Swedish maneuvers. Deep-tissue kneading and the sports modality, alternatively, may be in order for those afflicted with aches and pains. Therapists also specialize in treating chronic pain and discomfort with myofascial trigger-point therapy, which works to ease bodies at specific points of tension. The therapists happily cater to people with hectic schedules. They offer late appointments and readily render on-location massages by visiting patients’ homes, offices, hotels, and hotel pillow forts supported by stacks of room-service food.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Myles Crawford, health begins with a working nervous system. That's why he checks there first when pinpointing sources of patients’ pains. He snaps x-rays of the spine and spinal cord and takes thermal-image scans of the body to look for any pinching that can block nerves from doing their job. Once he locates the problem, he applies his more than 12 years of experience to ameliorate pain using a combination of drug-free treatments, including spinal adjustments and massages.
Able Body Colon Therapy modernizes colon hydrotherapy, an age-old cleansing technique that gently detoxifies the body with warm water streamed by FDA-approved machinery. Within a private room, patients repose atop a treatment table for 30 minutes as a staffer inserts a small tube that trickles water into the digestive tract. As insides ditch pent-up toxins and out-of-style petticoats that line Victorian-era intestines, an odor-minimizing machine lightly pulls them from the body. Afterward, cleansed colons often show improved job performance, and the rest of the body benefits from an ameliorated ability to absorb nutrients. Hydrotherapy can also oust a slew of toxins to potentially prevent or mute an array of ailments including bloating, immune dysfunction, and joints that banshee-scream when overexerted.
