Licensed chiropractor Rob Marvenko sees the body as a single, harmonious entity. Each component affects the function of all the others, as in a delicate ecosystem or the mosh pit at a Slayer concert. Marvenko's hands-on techniques reflect this holistic view of the body. During neuromuscular-reeducation sessions for soft-tissue injuries, he reinforces the nerve signals for functional movement by use of repetitive motions and muscle stimulation. Through the Chiropractic Biophysics technique, he focuses on normalizing posture and spinal curvature. In addition to bringing spines and nervous systems back into balance, he and the clinic's massage therapist practice hydrotherapy massage and physical therapy.
Dr. Marlene Mahipat works to assuage bodily aches with chiropractic adjustments and societal ills with nonprofit work, earning a feature article in the Chiropractic Journal. By day, she treats patients to an array of therapeutic services, from adjustments and traction treatments to aqua massage, dry needling, and treatments for migraine headaches. But after hours, Dr. Mahipat may transform her office into a sandwich-making station for the homeless, according to the Baltimore Sun, or hop in a car to deliver dinners for Meals on Wheels. Unsatisfied with being a mere volunteer, however, within the past five years she also founded two nonprofits herself: Helping Orphans Prosper Everywhere (HOPE) collects food and supplies for displaced or underprivileged kids, and People Letting Every Animal Survive Euthanization (PLEASE) aims to prevent unnecessary euthanizing of otherwise healthy pets.
With chiropractic doctorates that crown undergraduate educations in human biology, Doctors of Chiropractic Jarrod Lippy and Joshua Levin bring wisdom and experience to their practice and to their philosophy, which integrates the health of both mind and body and centers around preventative care. The duo perform their back-mending services with the latest in high-tech equipment, including computerized spinal analyses, electrical muscle stimulation, and hydromassage, during which patients lie fully clothed inside a water-massage bed or beneath white-water rapids as pressurized jets assuage tension. The doctors focus on each patient individually, employing their extensive experience in personal and work injuries, lower-back pain, and arthritis to properly diagnose maladies, perform adjustments, and refer patients to additional specialists if necessary.
