People afflicted with chronic pains and sore muscles come to licensed massage therapist Jason Colvard for relief, relying on treatments such as therapeutic bodywork, neuromuscular therapy, and Thai yoga therapy. Colvard draws on these modalities as he mends sinews damaged by injuries, repetitive motions, or stress placed on them during professional slouching competitions. He can also use bodywork techniques to help healthy athletes boost their performance.
Dr. Marc A. Levy works to ensure the nervous system does its job of helping the body heal from injuries and overcome illness. He gears his chiropractic adjustments, decompression treatments, and massages to unburden nerve tissue of pinches that can disrupt the body’s flow of communication. Although his treatments are designed to help the body heal itself, he pitches in with other noninvasive wellness maneuvers, such as electronic stimulation and aqua chi detox footbaths.

Doctors of Chiropractics John and Mechelle started their award-winning practice in 1990, but their greatest collaboration was yet to come. In 1992, the pair married, fusing their professional and personal lives into a practice powered by love and affection. Today, the doctors realign runaway vertebrae and relieve symptoms throughout whole bodies by treating spines and nervous systems.
The team specializes in bringing aid to those most in need. The doctors specialize in pediatric care, and have also worked with patients suffering from Alzheimer’s, attention deficit disorder, autism, asthma, and cancer. Dr. John estimates that he’s performed one million adjustments and seen 10,000 patients over the course of his career, a list that includes newborns, 93-year-olds, and professional athletes, such as championship limbo dancers.
When not at the office, Drs. John and Mechelle keep their skills sharp by attending seminars on chiropractic biophysics. They’re also passionate about community outreach: the two adjust the vertebrae of book spines in the local library, deliver lectures at local churches, and maintain active involvement in the Children’s Miracle Network. Regular patients are also invited to attend their educational workshops.
Charlotte Spine & Pain Relief Center's licensed chiropractors want to make it clear that they're healers, not treaters. That means that they use a combination of medical knowledge and technology to heal pain rather than soothe it temporarily. To that end, they specialize in traditional chiropractic treatments, such as spinal adjustments, as well as laser-based therapies; the cold laser, for one, shines painless, high-intensity light over achy areas to boost cells' power to heal and repair themselves.

The chiropractic team at The Joint...the chiropractic place has streamlined the chiropractic process. Virtually every aspect of the visitation is designed around patient convenience. Instead of scheduling appointments, patients simply walk in and fill out paperwork. A doctor is onsite to minimize wait time. During exams, patients stay comfortable in their street clothes or favorite footed pajamas while the doctors examine their spine, searching for subluxations and bulges. They devise a treatment plan that can include chiropractic adjustments, which typically only take about 10 minutes.
