Dr. Greg Mongeon refuses to confine his chiropractic expertise to the office; he has taken his know-how on the road and served high-school sports teams, mountain-bike racers, and even a rodeo circuit. In the same convivial spirit, he occasionally hosts complimentary banquet dinners to chat with past and prospective clients.
The doctor channels more than a decade of experience to correct spinal misalignments through a combination of hands-on adjustments, preventative tips, and rehabilitative services. With a constantly updated supply of vitamin and mineral supplements, he works to ensure that vertebrae stay strong in the face of rapidly changing trends regarding where it is cool to keep one’s piano. Licensed massage therapists on staff also help to alleviate aches and pains with adept kneads.
The chiropractic docs at Active Chirocare rely on holistic hands-on techniques to relieve pain and restore balance to catawampus spinal columns. At their spacious, modern clinic, they address backaches, neck aches, and headaches, in addition to sports and auto-accident injuries. The chiropractors promote a healthy lifestyle, chock full of exercise and good nutrition, and they strive to treat all problems naturally.
The technicians at Innovative Laser Institute target stubborn fat, cellulite, and lax skin with the i-Lipo laser system. Before beginning any treatment protocol, staffers sit down with clients to go over a complete health and medical questionnaire to ensure suitability for the process. The technician then positions the low-level laser device over the body area; the laser energy alters cells' chemistry and triggers the release of a lipase enzyme. The i-Lipo system is also referred to as a cold laser because most patients feel only a slight warming sensation during treatment. Its body-contouring effects can be permanent if clients eat sensibly, exercise, and annually surrender a sacrificial jelly donut into their fireplace.
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.
When Dr. Shane Kepler was diagnosed with severe scoliosis at age five, traditional medicine presented his parents with two options: risky surgery or a lifetime of debilitating physical challenges. Following the advice of a family friend, his parents took him to a chiropractor. Dr. Kepler not only developed a straight spine but also went on to win college athletic scholarships. At Kepler Family Chiropractic, he converts his personal experience with pain into opportunities to help patients live without it.
The team's philosophy emphasizes patient education and promotes preventative chiropractic care as much as the treatment of existing ailments. Dr. Kepler has adjusted patients ranging from newborn babies to 99-year-olds, as well as faithful clients who have been visiting his practice since it first opened 13 years ago. The compassionate crew also aids the local community with Lunch & Learn programs that encourage healthy living and reduce the number of water cooler refill-related injuries in the workplace.
After a hard hit during college football, Doctor of Chiropractic Travis Bangert thought his season was over. But then he saw the team chiropractor and, to his astonishment, he was back on the field and 100% better by the next game. It was at that moment that he knew he would become a chiropractor to help others achieve the same results.
Dr. Bangert’s colleague at Advanced Chiropractic Solutions, Doctor of Chiropractic Jessica Fleming, also found her passion for chiropractic treatments through a sports injury. She was 10 years old and competing in gymnastics tournaments nearly every weekend. Traditional medical doctors told her rest would heal her back; it did not. So she saw a chiropractor, and within weeks, she was back to her normal sports routine.
Both doctors’ backgrounds help them truly understand what their patients are going through when they come in for help. The chiropractors dispense manual adjustments and massages to alleviate everything from migraines to back injuries caused by patients trying to manually adjust their own spines.
