Apple Healthcare's veteran staff of medical, chiropractic, and physical-therapy professionals stretches its pain-soothing expertise across the clinic's two Knoxville locations. Chiropractic treatments ranging from realignment to corrective exercise rehabilitation mend crooked vertebrae and spines strained during attempts to nibble on out-of-reach leaves. Massage therapy and podiatry supplement the center’s spine-focused services, concentrating on muscles in the back and feet to decrease pain experienced during daily activities. Each facility houses advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies, including EKG equipment to monitor heart health and digital x-ray machines to detect skipping tracks on spinal disks.
Physical therapy and fitness become one at Southeastern Fitness and Rehabilitation—though it’s tough to pinpoint exactly where the fusion begins; maybe it’s the indoor pool, perhaps it’s the sauna, or possibly it’s the steam room and hot tub that contribute to the unison of exercise and therapy. No matter where clients find themselves, they’re sure to uncover equipment, such as strength-training machines, cardio machines, and free weights, to help facilitate weight loss and wellness. Trainers also lead aquatic classes, which help athletes lose weight and improve conditioning and flexibility.

The epidermal advocates at Boone's Creek Medical––a physician-owned and operated center––reveal faces' most radiant aspects through microdermabrasion treatments. Visages recline as skin expert Selena Hoyle buffs away their outermost shell of dead and dehydrated skin cells, unveiling the luminous layer underneath.

Rick Verastegui is a jack-of-all-trades. As a kid, Rick could be spotted marching around his yard holding a trashcan above his head, imitating either bodybuilder Charles Atlas or the neighborhood's most muscular garbage man. Although he eventually set the trashcan down, Rick never lost his passion for health. He carried that into adolescence and adulthood, earning a black belt in karate, playing football, and becoming a certified personal trainer.
In between all of that, Rick found time to earn his master's degree in business, plus degrees in Spanish, government, and economics—all of which he taught at some point. Still, fitness remained an integral part of his life. Rick expanded on his already lengthy resumé by becoming a nationally certified massage therapist, a skill he practices extensively at Unearth the Power. Rick also provides weight-training, stretching, and bodywork services, all while using his diverse background to connect with clients.
