Advanced Chiropractic’s team of spinal reshufflers practices chiropractic biophysics and specializes in the correction of abnormal forward head posture. New patients receive a complimentary consultation to review health history and affinity for knapsacks to determine if they would benefit from chiropractic care. If yes, an exam (a $119 value) follows and includes a battery of standard orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic tests, such as testing reflexes and range of motion. A chiropractor interprets the results by consulting astrological charts before deciding on a postural adjustment (a $35 value) that can treat a range of issues, from recurring headaches to constipation, by directly and indirectly affecting the entire nervous system through the spine. Patients can see the results thanks to before and after X-rays, if necessary (a $100 value).
The staff at DeFazio-Scott Chiropractic Clinic assesses spinal health and performs gentle adjustments to promote whole-body wellness. In addition to easing spines into proper alignment, staff members relieve tension in the surrounding muscles and connective tissue with massage therapy.
Dr. Marco Bouchard can skillfully adjust a single patient’s spine, whether they are two days or ninety-two years old. With a background in pediatrics, he modifies his chiropractic methods to suit a child’s frame at his practice, Healthy Beginnings Chiropractic.
His method of choice is the pragmatic Gonstead technique, which favors analyzing spines with mechanical engineering principles, rather than by knocking on them and waiting for an answer. In accordance with the technique, Dr. Bouchard’s exams incorporate the Nervoscope, which charts how heat is distributed along the spine, as well as x-rays and manual assessments. For alternative health treatments, patients can visit the practice’s naturopathic doctor or the massage therapist, whose Swedish kneads improve circulation, relieve muscle tension, and minimize stress.
