Voted the area’s top chiropractic clinic in the Lincoln Journal Star, Synergy Chiropractic Spine & Joint Center tends to a variety of clientele, from college athletes to expectant mothers. Drs. Keller, Hochstein, and Swartz employ an evidence-based, integrated approach to pain, aligning errant muscles and joints through motion palpation and traditional chiropractic manipulation.

Chiropractors David Lauer and Tyler Ideus know firsthand how effective chiropractic adjustments and manual therapy can be. After being told at the age of 19 that he had a degenerative disc, an emergency room nurse told an initially skeptical Lauer to see a chiropractor. Many years later, he is not only leading an active, limitless lifestyle but also learned a great deal about the self-healing capacity of the human body. Dr. Ideus, who was once a patient and intern at Havelock Chiropractic Center, has traveled the country learning the latest rehabilitation techniques from renowned chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons, and physical therapists. Even the center's resident massage therapist has personally experienced the benefits of chiropractic care, having been successfully treated for headaches by Dr. Lauer. Both chiropractors treat a variety of conditions with their extensive postgraduate training in Motion Palpation Institute (MPI) adjustment techniques. They also offer an array of cutting-edge therapies, including spinal decompression for bulging discs, or the Active Release Technique (ART) for muscles overused while running marathons or jogging alongside an ice-cream truck in order to read the fine print.
If Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan J. Meylor ever needed chiropractic advice, he wouldn’t have to look any further than his own family tree. Dr. Meylor, a third-generation chiropractor with more than 30 fellow chiropractors in his clan, earned his degree at the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he learned an array of techniques including the Gonstead, Thompson Drop, and Prone Specific. With his diverse skillset, Dr. Meylor seeks out the sources of his clients’ discomfort and customizes treatments to target their specific ailments, which can include back pain, allergies, headaches, and whiplash. As a certified acupuncturist, he also alleviates pain and treats conditions such as high blood pressure and dizziness with advanced acupuncture tools rather than needles.
Chiropractor Dr. Jenny (Dr. Jennifer Schrage) sought out her professional license after experiencing personal issues with pain that, while resistant to other treatment, resolved themselves handily when the doc tried chiropractic adjustment. To share that relief with others, Dr. Jenny helms a dedicated team at Schrage Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Massage as they help keep patients of any age healthy and happy with a suite of holistic healing services. Dr. Jenny creates a customized treatment plan for each patient to tackle chronic pains and aches by eliminating the symptoms and treating the underlying ailments. Inside the center’s private treatment rooms, including a cheetah-print kids' room, massage therapists practice their healing art in increments of 30, 60, and 90 minutes. The doc performs acupuncture treatments to release blocked chi by sticking fine needles along the body. During chiropractic services, Dr. Jenny's team wield an activator or impulse-adjusting device, both designed to deliver a set force of thrust that pops pockets of air stuck between the vertebrae or balloons floating around the rib cage.
Dr. Nick Crom's interest in chiropractic medicine began in college, when a quick series of visits to a chiropractor relieved him of chronic nausea that had eluded the testing and prescription drugs of his doctors. Now, motivated by the effects the gentle spinal adjustments had on his own health, Dr. Crom helps alleviate patients' ailments with holistic approaches.
Rather than prescribing drugs to mask a disease's symptoms, Dr. Crom adjusts the spine in a way intended to stimulate the body's own self-healing capabilities. Acupuncture, massage therapy, and detox treatments, meanwhile, help to further unlock internal recuperative powers, which can be encumbered by the toxins that accumulate during daily life or attempts to eat top-secret Etch-a-Sketch drawings. His clinic also helps clients shed excess pounds via Lipo-Light treatments, which unleash toxins lodged deep into bodies without needles, pain, or down time.
Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s David and Kim Yoo strive to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. Their hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. The doctors Yoo also employ moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
