Doctor of Chiropractic Kimberly Woudsma understands that the best healing treatments should be less traumatic than the problems they’re intended to cure. With that in mind, she studied Atlas Orthogonal, a crack-less spinal adjustment method, at the side of its inventor, Dr. Roy Sweat. Now, she is the only chiropractor in the area to be board certified in this gentle technique, which uses a ProAdjuster wand to deliver mechanical pulses to the body while simultaneously taking computerized readings that monitor patients’ mobility and number of remaining extra lives. In addition to tending to patients, Dr. Woudsma finds time for professional improvement, regularly attending continuing education events to bolster her knowledge of physiotherapy, nutrition, and preventative healthcare.
Board-certified Doctors of Chiropractic Tony and Matt Berardi studied an array of therapeutic techniques at New York Chiropractic College. At Chiropractic Wellness Associates, they put them into practice. Their services, which include flexion-distraction adjustments, deep-tissue massages, and myofascial release, are designed to alleviate pain from dislodged discs and disorders such as fibromyalgia. To help care for their patients' overall wellness, they also offer nutrition-counseling sessions that teach patients the difference between healthful foods and Heath-bar foods.
As the name suggests, Beyond Chiropractic doesn’t just stop at adjusting the backbone. Although the presiding doctor, Dr. Heather Carter, does indeed administer gentle, hands-on spinal adjustments, she also accelerates the healing process with a spectrum of other noninvasive techniques. Cold laser therapy circumvents the skin to lend mending to ligaments, muscles strains, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Soft-tissue modalities, such as kinesio taping and trigger-point therapy, further round out drug-free care.
For more than 16 years, AT Wellness Center has served as an oasis for detoxifying and recharging. Staffed by a team of licensed massage therapists, acupuncturists, and yoga instructors, AT Wellness offers numerous means for clients to reach optimal health. Along with bodywork and nutritional counselors, the center also hosts yoga and tai chi classes and open meditation sessions, where guests are encouraged to clear their mind and tap into a deeper, calmer place.
The odds of Levent Erdogan turning to chiropractic care weren't good, considering he was employed by a pharmaceutical company. But after years of prescription drugs and no relief from his ailments, he decided to branch out. One visit to the chiropractor later, he decided to quit his job, earn a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, and open The Center for Chiropractic and Holistic Care. There, Dr. Erdogan and his staff treat pain and painful conditions such as tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia by using spinal decompression techniques and cold laser therapy. Additionally, they conduct BioMeridian allergy screenings, which are a noninvasive way to probe the body's meridian points for common allergens such as peanuts, pollen, and kid sisters.
