The holistic medical team at The Natural Medical Group tailors its treatments to each patient, looking at environmental, nutritional, and social factors, as well as physical health. Massage therapy works to ease chronic aches and improve flexibility, whereas traditional chiropractic treatments work to address neck pain and running injuries. The team also offers nutritional counseling, which keep diets on the right track, and functional rehabilitation, which works to correct muscle dysfunctions.
Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Justin Atkinson, the friendly staff of Atkinson Chiropractic allays vertebrae and soothes spines through holistic practices and stress-busting massages, including prenatal massages. A one-hour Swedish massage at the hands of a professional limb-loosener will relieve tension and untie double-Windsor dorsal knots through fluid, gliding strokes. Alternately, a deep-tissue massage can appease pains associated with chronic muscle tension by gently penetrating deeper layers of muscle and rooting out stubborn aches tucked away in corporeal crannies.
The chiropractors, exercise therapists and massage therapists that helm each of The Wellness Group's four locations are uniquely qualified to heal what ails you. Whether the pain stems from overexertion, a work-related injury, or a chronic condition such as arthritis, the staffers combine their unique skills to put patients back on the road to a pain-free existence. They can also help patients shed pounds through medically supervised weight loss programs.
The reformer classes at Body by Pilates rely on the BackSmart techniques pioneered by author Dr. Adam Weiss. During the 50-minute, full-body workouts, instructors coach students through a series of cardio and muscle-sculpting exercises that burn fat and build strength more intensively than jogging through a spinach buffet. Up to 10 students stretch hips, glutes, and abdomens on the versatile reformer machine, which uses resistance to alternately lengthen and contract muscles while reducing the risk of injury. The specialized classes cultivate improved posture, core strength, and flexibility, leaving students invigorated and limber enough to happily crabwalk home.
Unlike many others in her field, Doctor of Chiropractic Irene Wallace believes that spinal adjustments and mainstream medicine can work together. At Comprehensive Chiropractic she draws from her 14 years of experience to relieve her patients' pain. However, though her own noninvasive treatments require no medication, she refers patients to medical doctors when she feels they can benefit from them.
