The healthcare practitioners at Advanced Physical Medicine utilize advanced technology in their comprehensive, multifaceted approach to pain management, physical therapy, and fitness. Chiropractic physicians treat injuries and misaligned spines with therapies that include decompression machines, and acupuncture sessions address chronic pain from sciatica or carpal-tunnel symptoms acquired while positioning full-size construction cranes over vending-machine toys. Physical therapists focus on rehabilitating patients who have suffered accidental injuries, incorporating innovative ultrasound and light-therapy treatments to promote healing. To encourage wellness from the inside out, certified colonic therapists rid intestines of accumulated waste and toxins, and weight-loss experts help clients to overcome house clutter by creating extra storage space in their pants.

It's hard to believe that Dawn Pierson was not always in top shape. Still in maternity clothes at her daughter's first birthday party, she decided it was time to change her fitness routine. She hired a personal trainer to show her the correct way to work out, and over time, she watched her body transform. Six months after her first session, she quit her job to become a certified trainer, with the goal of helping others like herself to live healthier and happier lives.
At Piersonfitness, she fills her roster of classes with Zumba, boot-camp, and personal-training sessions. She offers free 30-minute personal-training sessions for first-timers to demonstrate the impact that personal training can have in their exercise routine. In addition to training, she also leads high-energy dance-based Zumba classes set to Latin, hip-hop, and country tunes, describing the fun, full-body-toning classes as "exercise in disguise."
Before learning how to heal her body and mind, Cathy Baldwin was overweight, in constant pain, and on the path to heart disease. But after discovering herbal supplements and gaining a zest for fitness, she dropped 30 pounds (and several of the sacks of flour she’d been carrying around), chiseled her physique, and learned to coach others on their journey to a healthier state of being. Coach Cathy now counsels those coping with extra pounds and teaches them techniques that offer relief from ailments such as stress and pre-diabetic symptoms.
