The holistic experts at Optimum Health fuse Western medicine and alternative therapies to tackle clients? health and wellness concerns. While chiropractors identify and treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, physical rehab specialists treat injuries and disabilities by crafting custom protocols composed of therapeutic exercises, hot and cold therapies, and neuromuscular re-education. Similarly, skilled massage therapists employ deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies to loosen and restore tense sinews. Doctors and nurse practitioners target pain at its source rather than merely covering up the symptoms with painkillers or a plastic tarp. Additionally, Optimum Health's specialists craft custom treatment plans for patients struggling with weight loss, nutrition, and stress as they target the underlying causes of health issues.
Adding to a résumé that already flaunts more than 100,000 spinal adjustments, Dr. Gregory King presides over Backsmart Chiropractic’s bounty of restorative, pain-alleviating services. Verbal consultations kick off initial visits to the friendly office, and then bone buffs carry on with chiropractic evaluations that include orthopedic and neurological testing, reflex assessments, and muscle interrogation. Next, the exacting gaze of a panoramic x-ray scours sore areas for misaligned vertebrae and other evidence that the client has been sleeping inside a chimney. Two adjustments work to gently realign coiled columns, leading to a revivified immune system and improved posture. Once spinal rods are set straight, a 30-minute massage strives to ease any lingering aches while rendering the body as relaxed as a worm in the rain.
Licensed massage therapist Neil Currie doesn't just treat people, he empowers them to heal themselves. Through massage and Qigong, Neil guides clients down a slow and steady path toward wellness that reduces chronic pain and avoids the disappointment that comes from searching for a quick fix. To that end, this nationally certified pro relies on therapeutic massage modalities that he learned at Anthem College of Massage Therapy. He also offers clients tips, stretches, and exercises for managing their own pain and health at home. And he often takes his skills to sports competitions, where he revives weary athletes and worn out team mascots before, in-between, and after events.
At Somers Chiropractic & Wellness, a team of chiropractic doctors, massage therapists, and front-desk staff collaborates to restore patients' health. Their friendly approach encourages patients to relax and voice their concerns, which doctors use to tailor treatments to help stop back pain, headaches, or a growing appreciation of slam poetry. Dr. Eric Somers, the clinic's chief chiropractor, draws on his background in athletic training to identify and address sports injuries. For some conditions, he prescribes low-intensity laser therapy, a nonsurgical treatment in which he shines a laser-light probe on damaged tissue with the aim of boosting circulation and speeding healing. Massage therapists such as Patricia Perdomo?a stroke survivor who has traveled the chiropractic path to recovery?marshal deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and Swedish massage modalities to ease pain, tension, and stress.
As a practicing chiropractor for more than 10 years, Dr. JJ Anthonijs has found that chiropractic care combined with massage is a powerful technique that can effectively address the cause of musculoskeletal and nervous system related health conditions. When he sees a patient, he checks that all parts of the skeleton––including ankle and wrist joints––are healthy, aligned, and rust-free before administering a custom adjustment. In doing so, he draws upon his specialized training in the Gonstead, which can cater to both those with injuries and those looking to prevent future aches. For patients seeking massage therapy, Dr. JJ works with his team of three clinically trained and licensed massage therapists to customize a condition-based massage therapy to meet the specific needs of the patient.
