You won't hear percussive snaps and pops coming out of the treatment rooms at Vitality: A Creating Wellness Center. That's because Doctor of Chiropractic Jeff Mitchell doesn't crack spines; he specializes in gentle adjustments that use vibration to release locked-up vertebrae. The computerized Pro-Adjuster system knows precisely how much vibration to dole out and for how long. Dr. Mitchell uses these treatments to ease his clients' chronic headaches and help them lead pain-free lives.
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.
Dr. Deborah Kowalski's eponymous chiropractic clinic is a family practice in the truest sense. "Our youngest patient at this time is 22 months old, and both his parents are under [our] care too," says Dr. Kowalski. "Our oldest patient at this time is 75." Regardless of a client's age, Dr. Kowalski possesses the skills and technology to ameliorate physical, emotional, or chemical imbalances. In particular, she specializes in treating women and children, doing so with alternative remedies such as applied kinesiology and cold-laser therapy. Treatments take place in a sunlit office that "feels like a tree house" due to its bamboo floors and cheerful staff of Keebler elves.
Dr. Jim Sweeney of Sweeney Chiropractic realizes that the same treatment doesn’t work for every patient. That’s why he specifically designs treatment for each individual and makes sure that no one leaves his practice feeling like a number. Dr. Sweeney deftly works to align the spines of his clients with careful adjustments instead of bungee jumping in the parking lot. In addition to treating neck and back pain, Sweeney also works to treat carpal-tunnel syndrome, headaches, and pain from auto injuries.
Before graduating from Atlanta’s prestigious Life University, Doctor of Chiropractic James Moore of Harpeth Chiropractic received a bachelor of science in chemistry. The mix of micro-scientific rigor and macro, holistic understanding that he learned in his studies continues to influence his practice. Starting from basic symptoms, Dr. Moore moves from outward signs of distress to hidden, underlying causes, taking into account the entirety of each person’s physical state, lifestyle, and potential to be an incredibly realistic robot. After diagnosis, services such as chiropractic spinal adjustment, muscle-relaxing massage, and nutritional counseling help patrons on the route to overall health.
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.
