Sleuthing out clues to move beyond symptoms to root causes, chiropractor Darby Thomas expedites healing with a roster of preventive care strategies, from instilling better eating habits through nutrition workshops to combating the effects of stress with chiropractic services and massage therapy. The clinic adheres to a cradle to adult-size cradle philosophy, with programs that address the tiny backbones of infants or rehabilitate bodies suffering from headaches, numbness, or ingrown steering wheels after car accidents. The warm practice, which feels more like a spa than a doctor's office, has on-hand licensed massage therapists who are well versed in relaxation and therapeutic modalities to dismantle unhealthy muscular tension patterns or lower stress. The practitioners ease the transition for new patients with detailed information about the initial visit and what treatments may be recommended.
For more than 30 years, patients have come to Green Mountain Chiropractic and Massage for pain relief and a boost in their overall health. But before offering any treatments, Dr. Mark Wolff, D.C. or his team of specialists work with clients to understand their concerns and create a customized treatment plan that targets their needs. They then realign spines with traditional adjustments and perform advanced treatments such as computer-controlled spinal decompression and deep-tissue laser therapy, which stimulates healing on a cellular level.
Dr. Wolff, D.C. also specializes in holistic healing methods. As a certified acupuncturist, he has performed thousands of treatments over the years, using traditional fine-tipped needles or, alternatively, laser beams to relieve bodies of a variety of aliments. Additionally, registered massage therapists relieve clients’ stress and tension by loosening muscles, ligaments, and impossibly stuck jar tops with soothing strokes and targeted pressure.
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.
At Adjustments & Acupuncture, Doctor of Chiropractic Deb Hirabai uses more than 14 years of acupuncture experience to guide her patients toward active lifestyles. A recipient of such treatments herself, Dr. Hirabai zeroes in on everyday disorders while drawing on methods such as spinal corrections, applied kinesiology, and traditional Chinese acupuncture and herbal formulas. Most treatments begin with a comprehensive exam, which allows her to map out a personalized solution for each patient rather than relying on a cloth map of Middle Earth.
Head coach Mark Koehl draws on his experience as a competitive Ironman triathlete and a certified personal trainer to lead exercisers through challenging CrossFit workouts. Mark and the team of coaches lead clients through WOD's featuring kettlebells, dumbells, and tinkerbells. The center also performs chiropractic care and massage to help taxed bodies recover from intense exercise.
Carmichael Chiropractic targets three primary causes of health problems—trauma, toxins, and stress—so that patients can get back to moving well and feeling healthy. Armed with knowledge and experience gained over three decades in practice, Dr. Carmichael administers adjustments, exercise rehab, and ergonomic training. Nutritional supplements available at the clinic bolster healthy diets, while cleanses can evict toxins built up in the body from the rage your elbow feels every time you bump it on your desk.
