After sustaining an injury at a previous job, state-licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Frydrych came to the field of chiropractic when he found his prescribed physical therapy didn’t live up to its billing. Rather than continue on an unproductive course, he took charge of his own healing. Today, he applies his findings to help others overcome their own medical issues, often faster than with conventional treatments.
Despite the breadth of healing therapies and procedures at his command, the doctor focuses his skills on the principles of biomechanics. During treatments, he investigates clients' deficiencies and imbalances and corrects them through services such as chiropractic manipulations, pain therapy, and acupuncture. Performed alone or within a multifaceted plan for overall health restoration, the procedures can tackle maladies related to musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, and sports-related injuries.
Ever since chiropractic care treated the chronic migraines she suffered as a child, Doctor of Chiropractic Brownlie was inspired to become a chiropractor. Though she has been in practice for a quarter-century, she continues to undergo advanced training so that she can attain a specialization in cranial adjustments. She often works with subluxations, using computerized technology as well as manual exams to determine spinal dysfunction and if there is any buried treasure under the skin. Beyond chiropractic treatments, patients can also attend to muscular needs; the service menu includes interferential muscle stimulation and massage therapy.
Zabrosky Chiropractic's diligent Doctor of Chiropractic Adriana Zabrosky and accommodating therapists evict troublesome aches and pains with individualized care and thorough consultations. Prior to the massage, the certified professionals capture x-rays if necessary, shedding light on bone weaknesses, structural issues, and chakra discoloration. A full exam ameliorates misalignment dilemmas, revealing areas where undue physical pressure affects the bones or sculpts muscles into curlicues. Chiropractic clients choose between two types of massage—deep tissue or Swedish—both of which last an hour. The Swedish massage uses long strokes to stimulate circulation and reduce pain, and the deep-tissue massage realigns connective tissue, making it possible to give the extreme tilt-a-whirl another go.

Sessions often spill past the 50-minute mark as Daryl customizes each subconscious exploration to the needs of her clients.
When several MRIs and doctor's appointments led to Katie Summers's diagnosis of osteochondritis in her right ankle, she was understandably concerned—running was her life. So instead of surgery, she gave acupuncture a shot. It took only one session for Katie to find relief from her pain, and it had such an impact that she decided to pursue exercise science, clinical nutrition, and, of course, acupuncture as a career path. Now in the comfort of Pathways Center for Health & Wellness, Katie can ease deeply rooted pain with a personalized acupuncture session.
