At Graham Chiropractic Care, Dr. Tien Tran dedicates his practice not just to treating clients' pain, but also to understanding why they’re in pain. Every appointment begins with a consultation and exam, during which the doctor measures everything from blood pressure to neurological integrity and tests the patient’s reflexes, muscle tone and strength, and range of motion. If he suspects the patient is arthritic or an invertebrate in disguise, Dr. Tran might take a few digital x-rays to get a complete picture. He'll then prescribe any one of his treatment methods, such as spinal decompression, manual adjustments, or traction or ultrasound therapy.
The staff also offers massage therapy to alleviate pain in the muscles, tendons, and tissues. In addition, they provide acupuncture treatments designed to balance the entire body rather than focusing exclusively on the parts that hurt.
Positivity. Simple as it sounds, it's a central pillar of the philosophy behind Jason Yi's Tae Kwon Do College. At each of the school's five locations, the warm, supportive atmosphere starts with the instructors. Sure, they pass along years of martial arts wisdom, but they also strive to help students–younger ones, especially–realize that having fun doesn't necessarily mean sitting in front of a TV, or arguing the legitimacy of the moon landing with an imaginary friend. Through programs for kids, teens, and even entire families, the college's instructors lead students along a path that builds self-confidence and improves self-defense techniques. Instructors build on these same skills in the college's extracurricular offerings, which include after-school programs, birthday parties, and week-long summer camps.
