Lucia Chiropractic Clinic’s Doctor of Chiropractic George W. Lucia Jr., who speaks English and Spanish, aligns adults’ and kids’ spines with chiropractic adjustments and fortifies bodies with nutritional supplements. He uses techniques such as intersegmental traction to alleviate bulging discs and therapies such as moist heat, ultrasound, and electrical muscle stimulation to treat soft-tissue injuries. He even offers digital scans of feet to determine if there are any imbalances in the feet causing spine problems and ruining competitive race-walking potential.
As an avid sports fan, participant in sports such as hockey and football, and a youth-sports coach, Dr. Lucia recognizes the effects that intense physical activity can have on the body. He treats a variety of athletes at his clinic and is the official chiropractic physician for the Carolina Renegades, as well as the chiropractor for The Camel City Thrashers roller-derby team, a sport whose athletes are as injury-prone as a crash-test dummy’s stunt double.
Christina Barrett can do a lot of things, but there's one thing you'll never catch her doing: sitting still. Since her childhood days on the island of Nantucket, she has spent the vast majority of her time running, jumping, swimming, stretching, and training to keep her body in peak form. When she's not qualifying for the Boston Marathon or setting records in endurance races along the coastline of Nantucket, Christina draws on her vast knowledge to help other athletes—and nonathletes—stay in shape. Her signature training program is CoreAlign, which blends a variety of exercises to teach the body how to move correctly. With this in mind, it's fortuitous that Christina found Gray Chiropractic & Sports Associates. The health-and-chiropractic center provides her with all the resources she needs to heal muscles strained while jumping over hurdles or running into a wall painted to resemble a finish line.
At Liringis Chiropractic’s two locations, Drs. Steve Liringis and LaTanya Bowman nudge pained physiques closer to ache-free existence with general chiropractic care, corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, and nutritional counseling. Dr. Liringis's first taste of chiropractic care came after he suffered a neck injury playing touch football and one of his teammates remedied the soreness with an adjustment. His continued fascination with the medicinal field led him to graduate from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1979 and found Liringis Chiropractic in 1980. Joining Dr. Liringis in his fight against chronic pain, Dr. Bowman calls upon her experience in sports medicine to help patients achieve optimal health without having to swallow pills, eat a bushel of apples daily, or devour an entire treadmill.
Though challenged by his corporate job in payroll services, Doctor of Chiropractic John Stoetzel never felt passionate about it. But since attending the Palmer College of Chiropractic and opening his own chiropractic office, Dr. Stoetzel has hit his stride as he faces each day excited to treat his patients with treatments from spinal adjustments to traction to hydromassages.
Dr. Kevin Davis leads the team at Raleigh Chiropractic PA, performing chiropractic services that can set bodies to their correct stance, and massage therapy that can make muscles seem like real muscles again. Their goal for all of their patients is long-term health, and so they focus on the details?tracking the results from each adjustment, observing the effects of their care over time, and counting to make sure patients have the same number of vertebrae with each visit.
Dr. Jeff Lissenden—known as Dr. Jeff to his patients—helps clients overcome back and neck pain through alternative treatments that eschew pharmaceuticals and surgery. A personal trainer and graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Jeff possesses more than 20 years of experience in helping restore bodies that have become misaligned due to injury, chronic misuse, or one too many group shots in photo booths. During first visits, he thoroughly assesses each patient to develop a tailored treatment plan, which may include a variety of hands-on chiropractic techniques and massage to help reduce pain. He also offers specialized care to help patients recover from injuries caused by auto accidents. Beyond restoring bodily alignment, Dr. Jeff oversees a hormone-balancing weight-loss program that has helped some of his patients lose as much as a pound per day.
