At Brackeen Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Paul Brackeen works to empower patients. After performing in-office services such as chiropractic adjustments, the practice's medical workers teach patients how to complete corrective exercises on their own. Along with nutritional-counseling sessions, they hope to help patrons lose weight and improve their health by tapping into their own strength. In treatment rooms, FDA-approved Zerona machines purr across bodies, harnessing the power of lasers like a mad scientist trying to impress a date.
Recently relocated to a new, modern office, Howell Family Chiropractic performs the latest in corrective therapy for Kansans afflicted with back pain, headaches, or lingering effects from injuries. Doctor of Chiropractic Jeff Howell personally walks new patients through a three-step diagnostic process no more complicated than the waltz portion of their annual physical, determining their health-related problems, concerns, and potential treatment options. Sometimes the source of pain is obvious, such as a Revolutionary War–era bayonet lodged between the shoulder blades, but Dr. Howell will, if necessary, take a set of x-rays to identify areas of misalignment and degeneration in the spine and bone structure. Finally, the doctor gives your creaky corpus a gentle but thorough chiropractic examination designed to help diagnose a course of treatment.
Doctor of chiropractic Andrew Lutz adjusts backbones to relieve pain and prevent mechanical disorders in patients experiencing spine-related injuries and back pain. After discussing your condition and acting out two scenes from classic martial-arts movies, doctors position patients on a decompression table and begin treatment. During the noninvasive process, the doctor presses on vertebra as bodies are pressurized against the moving table, providing a pliable decompression to the compressed spinal disk. A distraction force is applied between moments of relaxation, tenderly pulling the spine apart like a flexible wooden snake, elongating it and creating a tiny vacuum between neighborly vertebrae in order to tug the disk back into its natural s shape. Countering the actions of a repetitious stress injury or pogo-stick incident, decompression is applied in brief increments that, over a span of time, allow the disks to recalibrate, heal, and receive a sturdy influx of the nutrients trained to battle back-brittleness and stave off future spinal injuries.

David Housworth works in the same building as the stylists of BNV'd, who focus their energies on dying hair and trimming it into chic styles. Housworth, however, has his own agenda, and it has nothing to do with hair. Instead, the certified massage therapist works to soothe and loosen tense muscles and dispel bodily pain with techniques ranging from light-pressure Swedish strokes to therapeutic deep-tissue kneading.
