Chiropractic is in Dr. Gallagher's bones: his father, Dr. William Briggs, is a chiropractor whose clinic has been in operation since 1958. "With my father being one of the pioneers of chiropractic," Dr. Gallagher says, "I was taught that the body is an amazing self-healing and self-regulating organism." Though a few of his techniques use newer forms of technology, Dr. Gallagher's philosophy is based on the same principles he grew up with: prevention is key, fancy new drugs are not usually necessary, and health is more than just the absence of disease.
Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Holman made a discovery while studying as a premed student: the United States consumes over half of the world’s prescriptive medication but ranks 29th in overall health. Armed with this insight, he shifted his focus to a drug-free approach to wellness through chiropractic care. At Adjust Chiropractic, Dr. Holman and his staff target pain throughout the body with comprehensive wellness plans and gentle spinal adjustments.
Dr. Travis Ring could fill a library with his assorted stacks of to-do lists. The head of Eastern Oklahoma Chiropractic creates a "schedule of care" for each of his patients, personalizing the tasks so that they address both painful symptoms and their underlying causes. He has several tools at his disposal, the most important of which are his hands—they administer careful adjustments that aim to realign ailing vertebrae. He has also mastered ART, or Active Release Technique, a method that relies on manual therapy and movements by the client to offset the effects of old injuries.
Among other approaches to chiropractic wellness, Dr. Ring utilizes intersegmental traction beds, needleless acupuncture, and massages from his office’s resident licensed massage therapist, Crystal. These varied methods can combat chronic aches resulting from a wide range of conditions, including carpal tunnel and shin splints, in addition to bothersome back and neck spasms. Dr. Ring gears his practice towards families and especially enjoys working with children, as their backs typically have fewer hard-to-remove barnacles than those of adults.
Doctor of Chiropractic Justin Snyder is a second-generation physician, and an experienced wellness speaker, who uses chiropractic treatments to help heal without drugs or surgery. A hallmark of chiropractic care, his whole-patient approach is designed to relieve symptoms all over the body. By integrating acupuncture, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy into his practice, Dr. Snyder presents patients with a custom template that helps bodies heal themselves. Dr. Snyder’s passion for athletic hobbies, such as snowboarding, cycling, and battling piranha invasions at local lakes gives him a firsthand look at how bodies function, and he uses this knowledge both in his practice and during his lecture career. He travels to companies, schools, and clubs to share his wisdom on back-injury prevention, pregnancy and postpartum care, and workplace ergonomics.
