Doctor of Chiropractic H. Carol Sanders-Shochat of Sabino Canyon Chiropractic/AZ Spinal Decompression Center has been practicing since 1981 and learned how to use cold-laser technology, which has been highlighted on Dr. Oz, to relieve pain. Dr. Carol and her husband, Doctor of Chiropractic Wayne Shochat, also realign the back and neck with gentle chiropractic techniques. They focus on easing neck and back pain caused from car accidents, and the team of licensed massage therapists kneads knots out of muscles with a variety of massage modalities.
At DC Chiropractic, Dr. Diego Camacho takes a whole-person approach to assisting patients with their healthcare goals. A patient's initial visit to his office usually includes a thorough consultation, exam, and x-rays, helping to identify the root causes of ailments. The doctor of chiropractic then recommends a customized treatment plan, which may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, or soft-tissue massage. He and his staff further promote overall wellness by dispensing lifestyle advice, from tips about nutrition to guidelines for beneficial at-home exercises.
Doctors Scott and Melody DeMent, a husband-and-wife team, each followed a different path that led them toward chiropractic care. Scott started out as a chef in New Jersey before he decided to return to Arizona and follow in the footsteps of his chiropractor father. At the same time, Melody’s struggles with headaches and asthma made her turn to the field for her own health. The two met while attending New York Chiropractic College and shortly thereafter started their business, where they specialize in spinal therapies such as decompression and cold-laser treatments.
Doctor of chiropractic E. Talbot Jenkins has been helping patients overcome pain without the use of prescription medicine for two decades. Today, at Pantano Chiropractic, he continues to employ adjustment techniques to treat everything from headaches to dislodged vertabrae. Given the holistic approach, his chiropractic care can yield an array of health benefits, including better posture and decreased tissue inflammation.
The holistic practitioners at Alternatives in Health Care promote beauty and balance, both inside and out. They offer a wide range of natural services, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to detoxifying body wraps and rejuvenating facials. Acupuncture facelifts harness ancient Chinese needling techniques in an effort to ward off wrinkles and malicious balloons, and energy-driven Bio-Touch sessions employ the power of aimed, gentle touch to awaken the body?s ability to heal itself painlessly.
When he was in middle school, Dr. Richard Casabona was the only one in his school with Dr. in front of his name. But at that time, he also had allergies so debilitating that he couldn’t focus in school or play football outside. Noticing that pregame chiropractic care relieved his symptoms and let him tackle with ease, he realized he'd found his calling. Dr. Casabona eventually had the chance to study with some of his field's most knowledgeable professionals—studying he cultivated into his own authority in the field.
He brings that expertise to the practice he's been running since 1989, when the Internet was just a twinkle in the fax machine’s eye. Today, his treatments include chiropractic specialties such as the Gonstead and Pettibon techniques. Dr. Casabona's favorite achievement, however, is educating his patients so they can rely on their own intuition and wellness wisdom.
