Through a combination of stretching muscles, nerves, and the myofascial system, the Cary Stretch method strives to improve athletic performance, increase mobility, and increase range of motion.
Carol S. Hickman started practicing massage therapy in 1993, but it wasn’t until 1995 that she really saw the full effect her skills could have on others. After the Oklahoma City bombing, she used her knack for healing to bring the victims physical and mental peace. The satisfaction of helping others—and to see their faces fade from tortured to pain-free—is what has kept Hickman in this career path for nearly 20 years.
Her treatment repertoire includes hot-stone and therapeutic massages meant to soothe muscles and stiff necks, and zen body therapy, which uses high-intensity energy treatments similar to rolfing to straighten the spine, similar to those used to roll out an old, dry piece of play-doh. Hickman also extends her services to animals with arthritis and to infants, focusing on instilling good posture when children’s bones are the most pliable.
Doctor of Chiropractic Cody Elledge treats more than just backaches and stiff necks—he works to keep the nervous system tuned up and humming efficiently.

Acupuncture treatments complement his holistic treatment regimens, lending to his well-rounded approach to bringing balance to the body.
Dr. Richard Huffman gently renews zest in soul sacks after leading thorough consultations and exams that unveil each client's medical history, pains, and eagerness to smile for x-rays. Huffman also uses this time to explain the science behind chiropractic practices, which generally aim to treat the "whole person" by addressing misalignments in one of the body's seven spinal columns. Once Huffman has collected and shared adequate information, he treats the client's body to a soothing first treatment that may include a bone adjustment and dose of needleless, pressure-centric acupuncture.
As the name implies, the trio of doctors at Brixton Chiropractic and Acupuncture deals out noninvasive chiropractic and acupuncture treatments geared toward vanquishing pain without the use of drugs. They extol the body’s ability to heal itself and attempt to stimulate that property with a combination of spinal adjustments that relieve pinched nerves and sterile needles to reroute the body’s energy. In addition to plying their healing services in the office, they also arm clients with self-care information, such as exercises and proper nutrition.
Apex Medical & Wellness's medical doctors, chiropractors, and nurse practitioners work together to treat problems such as fibromyalgia, migraines, and injuries resulting from car accidents. They might use spinal-decompression treatments to create space between vertebral discs and alleviate pinched nerves, or Supartz injections to assuage knee or shoulder pain. They can also combat migraines with the Tx360 migraine treatment and help relieve chronic back pain with physical medicine.
