Coming from a family tree that had been sprouting medical practitioners for three centuries, Dr. Lev Sudakov has other people’s well-being in his blood. He founded Ocean Drive Chiropractic and Wellness Center in 2008 with the goal of helping his clients "get their lives back" through chiropractic care's potential to soothe chronic pain and other maladies. Drawing inspiration from his ancestors' tradition for patient-focused care, Dr. Sudakov harnesses the newest of technologies, such as Class IV K-Laser therapy, ultrasounds, and electrical muscle stimulation to treat his clients.
Dr. Sudakov uses massage therapy to banish stress, amplify the effects of chiropractic treatments, or soothe muscles sore from giving piggyback rides to Abraham Lincoln’s statue. His bilingual staff also offers nutritional counseling, helping everyone supplement the office's wellness-boosting treatments.
Stretch Zone mixes up humdrum fitness regimes with a new type of workout, one that can enhance physical performance, muscle symmetry, and flexibility. It consists of table stretching—but not the kind that you're probably familiar with. By working with the autonomic nervous system, Stretch Zone practitioners take muscle extension to a whole new level. Atop their specially designed tables, comfortable straps systematically position, stabilize, and isolate the parts of the body that are not being stretched. This allows the stretched muscle—and the person on the table—to completely relax, extending further than the central nervous system would normally permit. Besides helping rejuvenate and invigorate the whole body, the sessions can also alleviate rheumatic pain for everyone from seniors to adults.
At Hollywood Health & Wellness, certified practitioners tag-team stress, bodily aches, and unwanted fat. I-Lipo treatments, which target cellular fat stores with safe, low-level lasers that flush excess fat into the metabolic process, trimming up to 4 centimeters from abdomens in a single 45-minute treatment. With hands well-versed in the language of chiropractic and massage therapy, the doctor also realigns out-of whack spines and muscles, helping to reduce pain caused by repetitive motions, auto injuries, or time spent posing undercover as a coffee table.
Many chiropractic patients enjoy the trademark cracking sound of a spinal adjustment, while others find it a bit unsettling. Doctor of Chiropractic Charles D. Helfeld?or Dr. Chuck as his patients call him?can do both. His traditional spinal adjustments deliver precision pressures that yield an audible crack as misaligned vertebrae snap back into place. But he also uses the Activator technique, which accomplishes the same feat without producing any audible cracks or internal monologues.
The staff at Le Mont Sinai Chiropractic and Wellness strives to impart their patients with lifelong health. They do this by treating chronic pain with chiropractic methods and massage. Previously, their treatment methods have quelled the aches of patients suffering from sports injuries, car accidents, work-related injuries, and other medical conditions.
His parents named him Sherwood Swartz, but Dr. Wu Dhi’s name change was not made in vain. A student of various Chinese medicine traditions, Dr. Dhi received several designations from each school; one such name was Wu Di, meaning “has no enemies.” A Tibetan lama, however, later changed that moniker to Wu Dhi. The addition of an h may seem insignificant to the untrained eye, but that little consonant is actually a prestigious honor indicating wisdom. Today, a practitioner of Chinese medicine for more than three decades, Dr. Wu Dhi helms Whole Life Health and Wellness, where he demonstrates his wisdom through a variety of holistic treatments, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, and body-mind clearing.
