An active member of the local healthcare community, Jeffersontown Medical?s Doctor of Chiropractic Neil Langschied speaks and presents on topics such as fibromyalgia, industrial safety, and stress. He teaches people how to improve golf performance by adjusting their swing and informs them that continuing to teach the neighborhood kids how to slam dance will likely result in neck pain and stiffness.
He further educates patients at the clinic, showing them that a combination of chiropractic care and progressive rehab is best for targeting both the joints and the muscular system. This approach can relieve symptoms of a number of ailments, including carpal tunnel, migraines, and scoliosis.
After learning about you and your health, as well as address any questions you may have, Dr. Greg Thomas will give you a full examination supplemented by two x-rays to pinpoint where your pain propagates. Your treatment session will begin with a 10-minute rolling massage that will help you understand why the rolling pin in your kitchen always looks so relaxed. Then, using his hands (or if he's feeling mischievous, his gorilla gloves), Dr. Thomas will locate tight, taut areas in your soft tissues and apply a precise, gentle pressure to them.
While playing hockey at the age of 18, Dr. Shawn Martin began experiencing pain in his lower back. A natural athlete, Martin sought help from his family doctor, but found only minor relief from his pains. It wasn’t until his grandfather took him to a chiropractor that Martin found relief from his condition, as well as a new calling in life––to help others to live lives free of pain.
After studying at Palmer College of Chiropractic, he spent seven months traveling to Thailand, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Peru living as a local and delivering chiropractic care to hundreds who may not have had access to it otherwise. Today, his practice sees patients as young as 1 day old and as wise as 97 years of age, who seek out his staff's expertise in everything from spinal adjustments and active therapies to massage. Holding degrees in chiropractic and biology, and certified with the Acupuncture Society of America, Dr. Martin also enjoys educating the community through health classes and staged readings of his spine-theme haikus.
Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. With a passion for wellness burnished by her experiences in that job, she earned her teacher’s license to show young people how to preempt diet-caused illness. That endeavor eventually led her to create Target Metabolism, a health-and-wellness company that champions weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric tracking. Beth and her team of registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and they delve into thinking past carbohydrates and focusing on a “calories in vs. calories out” metric. This caloric count is based on the client's specific metabolism, rather than the average metabolism of the client's age, weight, height, and gender group. In addition to dieticians, the staff includes massage therapists that offer specific treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process. Modalities include hot stone and aromatherapy.
