Chiropractic physician Dr. Doris Antos began as a chiropractic assistant in 2005, and was inspired to pursue her Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the Palmer College of Chiropractic. There, along with her doctorate, she earned the Virgil V. Strang Philosophy Award and graduated in 2010. She currently helps clients cope with and overcome chronic pain with a variety of chiropractic services, ranging from nonsurgical spinal decompressions to Class IV laser therapy. During her spinal adjustments, she can perform an array of techniques—including the Gonstead and Diversified methods. Based on a comprehensive initial exam she determines which technique best suits her clients’ individual conditions, be they herniated discs, muscle spasms, joint pain, or arthritis.
With 30 years of experience, the staff at Ormond Beach Medical Center helps clients reduce pain and prevent future injuries with massage therapy, sports medicine, and chiropractic and acupuncture care. Board-certified Dr. Richard Branoff and family nurse-practitioner Ellen Branoff also take care of people of all ages through comprehensive family medicine. They focus on preventive care by giving routine checkups, immunizing patients, and swaddling patients in bubble wrap.
Chronic pain and numerous conditions subside as Four Winds Acupuncture's licensed acupuncturists use tiny needles to correct bodily imbalances. An initial exam takes stock of symptoms and medical history, and a pulse diagnosis and inspection of the tongue helps determine a course of action and the third course of last night's dinner. After an evaluation based on Chinese medicine, the acupuncturist creates an individualized treatment. Acupuncture treats a number of ailments including shoulder pain, stress, and sciatica. The specialist then carefully inserts stainless-steel needles into targeted areas across the body, each pointer about the size of a human hair. As the body is stimulated, vital energy flows through its meridians, helping it to naturally heal itself, correct chemical imbalances, and learn how to Dougie.
Being injured is frustrating enough. Having to hop around to various specialists in search of a solution only adds to that frustration. Dr. Brett Wisniewski D.C., Dr. Brian Scott Self D.C., and Dr. Audrey Gil de Rubio D.C. of Aligned Integrative Health understand this, and they do everything they can to find and treat problems naturally—no referrals necessary. Chiropractic medicine and infrared-sauna treatments are among their many services, and they can even help clients lose weight in a healthful manner, with customized 30-day programs.
Doctors of Chiropractic Roger and Carol Learned share their passion for chiropractic at Ormond’s Family Chiropractic Center. Their enthusiasm for hands-on healing is apparent from the moment visitors walk through the door, when they are whisked into treatment rooms with minimal wait time and absolutely no riddles from sphinxes. There, the doctors discuss the patient’s concerns and investigate with exams and x-rays, when medically necessary, looking along the spine for out-of-place vertebrae that can pinch nerves and disrupt bodily communication. No matter what the need, the doctors ensure clients exit the office brimming with chiropractic knowledge. In addition to explaining everything they find during exams, they also teach patients how to support their own health at home. They outline complete balanced diets and teach exercise and stretching techniques to help discs stay centered and joints flexible.
