Dr. A. Carlo Guadagno and his energetic staff at West Kendall Chiropractic Center realign spines with manual manipulations, the Graston technique, and advanced equipment, demonstrating an attention to detail that earned Dr. Guadagno the Bradley Timpf Award for Chiropractic Sports Physician of the Year. During each chiropractic exam, West Kendall's team consults with patients about aches and pains in English, Spanish, Creole, or Italian before helping adjust herniated discs. Along with adjustments, the crew also provide clients with BMI assessments to determine organ function, custom exercise programs, x-rays, and sport-injury treatment in which Dr. Guadagno releases subluxations.

The center uses a team approach, with multiple dentists often weighing in on a single case to make sure that no expertise goes unoffered.

Doctors of Chiropractic Aura L. Tovar and Francisco J. Diaz have logged a lot of miles. Traveling to Florida from their respective childhood homes of Venezuela and Puerto Rico, they've set up shop in Miami, helping weary travelers and homebodies alike with natural, gentle chiropractic services.

And after locating the source of generosity between the shoulder blades and the coccyx, Dr. Tovar decided to supplement her practice with charitable works, leading to partnerships with Kids Day America International and ChiroMission.
