When you're in pain, even getting to the doctor's office can seem like an insurmountable task. Once you're there, the last thing you want to be told is that you'll need to go elsewhere to find a solution. This is what makes Apache Health Center such a welcome addition to the medical landscape in Las Vegas. The center stands apart from the crowd, thanks to its unique mix of chiropractic care, massage therapy, drug tests, and CPR education. Whole-body wellness is the staff's main concern; to that end, they offer services that range from soft-tissue stretching to chiropractic adjustments.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Maria A. Giacalone, chiropractic care is a family affair. She comes from a line of chiropractic physicians that spans more than 40 years, as well as practices in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, where she herself worked as a licensed chiropractor before relocating to Vegas in the early ’90s. Today, Dr. Giacalone draws upon more than 20 years of experience in the field, and has stayed current on industry techniques by embarking on a full year of training in rehabilitation and sports injuries in addition to taking classes on topics such as nutrition.
Services address problems such as chronic back and neck pain, whiplash, or arthritis, but also help clients maintain total well-being through diet, exercise, and health-related workshops led by guest speakers. Treatments may use both nonforceful techniques and traditional adjustments, as well as heat and ice therapy, helpful for easing chronic discomfort or testing whether old Hypercolor T-shirts still work.
