You won't hear percussive snaps and pops coming out of the treatment rooms at Vitality: A Creating Wellness Center. That's because Doctor of Chiropractic Jeff Mitchell doesn't crack spines; he specializes in gentle adjustments that use vibration to release locked-up vertebrae. The computerized Pro-Adjuster system knows precisely how much vibration to dole out and for how long. Dr. Mitchell uses these treatments to ease his clients' chronic headaches and help them lead pain-free lives.
Doctor of Chiropractic Spence Jahner discovered the power of chiropractic care up close, when it proved successful in treating his father's back problems. Ever since graduating as valedictorian from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Jahner
has diligently tended to the spines of locals at We Care Chiropractic. His appointments begin with thorough physical examinations, complete with motion x-rays. Using these results, he helps devise a treatment plan customized to each patient's individual needs. He primarily administers spinal adjustments, which realign vertebrae to help alleviate symptoms such as neck pain and headaches. He also has experience in treating specific types of patients, including those recovering from personal injuries, as well as athletes recovering from particularly strenuous huddles.
While chiropractic medicine's popularity has grown over the years, its origins date back decades.

He has continued to treat skeletal misalignments with the assistance of ever-evolving technology and a growing team of fellow chiropractors. Today, Doctors Lance Doppler and Jen Johnson also work at the practice helping to rehabilitate patients after injuries or treat chronic conditions.

Although Tami Dern helps her clients reduce their stress levels and strengthen their immune systems, she's not a counselor or a doctor. She's a certified massage therapist. At The Body Shop Massages, clients lie on Tami's heated massage table while she intuitively seeks out muscle knots. To enhance the health benefits of bodywork sessions, she includes organic essential oils and aromatherapy and may add ultramoisturizing paraffin hand dips or deep-heat treatments at clients' request. After massages, Tami discusses the experience with clients and advises them to drink lots of water to hydrate muscles and camel humps.
