As an eighth grader, Laurie Jahnke was amazed at how a trip to the chiropractor quelled her lower-back pain caused by gymnastics. After that, her interest in the practice never waned. Now, Doctor of Chiropractic Laurie Jahnke prides herself on her practice’s natural, prescription-free care; she treats her patients with traditional chiropractic methods, such as adjustments and nutritional plans. To draw up the proper treatment plan, she examines her patients’ issues with the Core Score Easy Scan, which looks at the muscle tone and balance surrounding the spine, organ and gland control, and heart-rate variability, which determines the body’s ability to adapt to daily stresses, such as a traffic jam caused by a stampede of elephants crossing the highway.
Doctor of Chiropractic Stephanie C. Owens caters to her clients with numerous chiropractic services and therapies at her disposal, as well as experience from years in the US Army Reserves and working at a VA hospital. In addition to traditional spinal screenings and adjustments, she and her staff administer therapeutic massage therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, and paraffin baths to enhance health and feelings of well-being.
The doctors that make up Northern Kentucky Pain Relief's medical team have vastly different specialties. Though this might make for awkward chats at office parties, it also means that clients with pain problems are more likely to find a professional specialized in treating their exact ailment. Some focus on nerve problems—the tingling, cramping, and numbness known as peripheral neuropathy—while others have a knack for the more hands-on relief that comes from physical rehabilitation. A corps of three chiropractors, meanwhile, eases the pain of misaligned vertebrae with chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression. Rather than sticking to one treatment method, the clinic's pain-relief programs often call on a blend of regimens, such as massage therapy, chiropractic care, and pep talks from surly boot-camp sergeants.
Pain specialist Dr. Mazzone of Healing Touch Neurologic Relief Center specializes in neurologic-relief testing and is 1 of only about 225 doctors in the world who specializes in the technique. He and his staff can seek out the sources of maladies such as chronic pain, migraines, and fibromyalgia, and then prescribe an effective NRC treatment plan along with corrective exercises, massage therapy, or nutritional counseling.
Everybody’s Health began in 1998 as Western Row Chiropractic and kept the moniker until 2004. It was then that owner Doctor of Chiropractic David Berring decided to expand it to a full-service wellness center that combined the best of traditional and alternative therapies, and catered to clients of all ages. Equipped with eight chiropractors, multiple licensed massage therapists, a reiki master, and hypnotherapist, the center’s four locations continue to straighten spines and alleviate pain through quality chiropractic care, but can now extend their healing prowess to encompass everything from tension-reliving reflexology to exercise programs that focus on common problem areas such as the abs or elbows. The staff can also work to help patients improve their overall health by creating custom weight-loss strategies, and may recommend hypnosis as a way to heal personal problems or train the brain to remember to take its vitamins whenever the doorbell rings.
A green office, Everybody’s Health is prides itself on being paperless, relying instead on the use of technology to collect patient information and glazed donuts to take the place of office sticky notes.
