The Joint has a simple mission: 'to improve people's lives with routine and affordable chiropractic care.' Their team of skilled chiropractors operate on an appointment-free basis, helping to ensure that people can receive treatment despite busy schedules, and membership programs help to keep costs low.
The therapists at Bodywork by Vitality hone in on muscular distress with a slate of massage modalities. Each specialist is trained in many techniques, including trigger-point and deep-tissue massage to combat localized pain and Swedish massage to alleviate tension stemming from unwieldy Viking headgear.
After receiving his MBA and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Chris Tomshack opened his own practice. But one wasn't enough. He needed a real challenge, so he opened two more—all while studying the successes of other industries. With this knowledge and experience stowed safely in his hippocampus's glovebox, he eventually launched his own nationwide franchise: HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab.
Today, his chiropractors work alongside massage therapists and rehab experts as they craft custom action plans to help their patients overcome common ailments—such as neck pain and headaches—as well as severe conditions. Their Progressive Rehab method combines chiropractic techniques with rehabilitation therapies to relieve nerve pressure and pain. When they aren't nudging rebellious vertebrae, staffers stock a gourmet coffee bar with complimentary treats that always know just what to say.
Contrary to popular belief, chiropractic adjustments weren't initially used to eliminate back pain. Chiropractic's founder, D.D. Palmer, actually performed the first adjustment on a man who went deaf after feeling a pop in his back. The adjustment by Palmer realigned his spine and helped the man regain his hearing.
Littleton Chiropractic's Doctor of Chiropractic Brad Bourne hopes to continue to help alleviate problems caused by misaligned vertebrae, following in the footsteps of both Palmer and Dr. Bourne's own grandfather, who was also a chiropractor. Dr. Bourne adjusts misaligned spines to ease everything from carpal tunnel syndrome to headaches, and he often uses a decompression table. This device works to heal herniated or injured discs by relieving the pressure placed on them by other discs.
Doctor of Chiropractic Krista Haldiman utilizes the NUCCA chiropractic method, a chiropractic method featured on Good Morning America and Discovery Network Health. The acclaimed technique involves an upper cervical spine procedure to correct the position of the top vertebrae of the spine. This method bypasses any twisting or turning of the head, neck, or back; only a slight pressure is felt below the ears. The gentle technique helps alleviate hypertension and chronic pain, improve range of motion, decrease tension, and bolster energy levels.
