She graduated, and practiced chiropractic around the world—including in the United States, Vietnam, and Singapore—before arriving in Hawaii to open Cassandra Peterson Chiropractic.
When it comes to pain relief, a one-size-fits-all approach is rarely the answer. That?s why Portner Orthopedic Rehabilitation?s team isn?t populated by professionals versed in a single field or specialty. Instead, the roster consists of medical doctors, non-surgical orthopedic doctors, physical therapists, an acupuncturist, and rehabilitative massage therapists who help treat such conditions as whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. Their diagnostic services mix old-fashioned physical examinations with electromyography and ultrasound testing. After determining the underlying cause of discomfort, doctors might ease inflammation in the joints, alleviate muscle spasms, and reduce swelling with injection therapy.
When conditions call for extra relief, the doctors call in colleagues including physical therapists, licensed massage therapists, and an acupuncturist. They set to work dissipating deep-seated problems with their specialized treatments, whether they?re applying pressure to problem areas and kneading out knotted tissue or unblocking energy pathways and promoting inner healing through the strategic insertion of tiny needles.
