Dr. Nicholas Balovich had two seemingly disparate health issues: repeated sinus infections and persistent knee problems. He found a solution in chiropractic, which revolves around the care and strengthening of the spine. He started his own practice to share with others the health benefits he found for himself, performing spinal adjustments, exams, and massages to soothe chronic pains in his clients.
Dr. Corey Carwile of Tidewater Wellness Centers recognizes that not everyone is an athlete—though Dr. Carwile did play soccer in college— the licensed chiropractor takes the time to customize treatments to fit the needs and health goals of each client. The doctor alleviates headaches, muscle soreness, and body aches with traditional adjustment techniques as well as with computerized instruments from Pulstar and Impulse iQ that chart progress digitally. The office also offers massage from a licensed therapist, exercise instruction, Lipo-Light treatments, and better lifestyle guidance than a Magic 8-Ball inside a fortune cookie.

Louis Fernandez, DC, was drawn to chiropractic as a child when he witnessed the way its hands-on healing helped his mother to recuperate from injury.
