“Joints love movement, and so do our muscles and our mood,” says Doctor of Chiropractic Lawrence Beck, making the case for a life of dancing, jogging, and swimming. When his own back went out on him during college, it was chiropractic adjustments that freed Dr. Beck and his vertebrae from a life of immobility. At Beck Chiropractic & Wellness, the doctor and his son-in-law, Dr. Jesse Elsholz, restore mobility to muscles and bones with a range of techniques. They might analyze leg length using the Thompson technique, or relieve muscular inflammation with ultrasonic therapy. For patients averse to the cracking sounds associated with adjustments, they employ a hand-held device that mobilizes disc segments with gentle pressure, producing no audible popping, locking, or electric boogalooing. Dr. Beck's patient-care coordinators don't keep patients waiting. Thanks to smart and generous scheduling, they're able to beckon patients right through the sunlit reception area into private treatment rooms.

Doctors Bouwhuis and Beierle strive to eliminate chronic pain caused by musculoskeletal issues. During consultations, they diagnose concerns such as slipped or bulging discs and incorrect posture, then develop lifelong habit improvements and preventive measures with each client to avoid further aggravation. They then execute an adjustment to alleviate discomfort and improve range of motion. They can also arrange rehabilitative plans consisting of corrective exercises to be performed three days a week, thus continuing their efforts to not only relieve the pain now but keep it from recurring.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jamie Skaggs firmly believes that everyone should have a say in the care they receive. After graduating from New York Chiropractic College, he practiced his craft in New York and Baltimore before opening Skaggs Chiropractic Care. Now he and his staff of massage therapists, acupuncturists, physical therapists, and medical doctors rely on old-school techniques and modern equipment to ease aches. Their arsenal of stress- and pain-relieving gadgets includes ultrasound devices, electric muscle stimulation, and x-ray machines.

The skin specialist trained at both the Gloria Francis Institute of Beauty and the New York Institute of Beauty, perfecting the skills that she now uses every day at When Style Counts.
