Doctor of Chiropractic Joe Stevens specializes in the Gonstead technique, a discipline centered on detailed assessments and precise adjustments. He uses it to fight vertebral subluxations, a term for when the movable bones of the spinal cord become misaligned and end up pinching nerves. And because these subluxations can occur at any point throughout life, Dr. Stevens trained with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association to gain the expertise required to help children, whose spines often become misaligned after they start to play sports or give piggyback rides to heavy imaginary friends. He's also currently racking up additional pediatric certifications.

Dr. Hagarty and his toothy team inspect, clean, whiten, and repair incisors and molars alike at Hagarty Family Dental. With a father and brother who are also dentists, Dr. Hagarty spent his formative years watching dental procedures and performed his first root canals at age 4 on a set of Hungry Hungry Hippos. During an exam (a $75 value), each smile will be visually checked for healthiness and wear, followed by four bitewing x-rays (a $58 value) and, if needed, a panoramic x-ray (a $105 value). Each tooth is then freed from its sheath of plaque and tartar during a cleaning (an $86 value). An overhead television offers a welcome distraction for patient eyeballs, and a massaging chair provides a welcome relief for tense backs. Should a customer's insurance cover the exam and cleaning, Hagarty Family Dental will credit the cost of the Groupon toward any further treatment needs.
Featuring a menagerie of handcrafted fantasy animals, Coral Ridge’s turn-of-the-century reproduction carousel glitters at the heart of this shopping, dining, and entertainment destination. A team of mall-housed elves put 100 hours into hand finishing each animal, chariot, and paddy wagon atop the rotating platform. Ride mammal-saddle aboard a racing cheetah, stately horse, or friendly elephant. A charming light show emanates from the ride’s mirrored panels and hundreds of pinpoint ceiling lights, and a lighted ribbon rests atop the carousel’s crown, acting as a beacon to hordes of children and friendly manticores. Nestled among department stores, an edible food court, the Iowa Children’s Museum, and much more, the 10-ride carousel punch card stands ready to punctuate days of happy diversion.
One of the main contributing factors that makes Dr. Chris Jacobi such a successful chiropractor is that he's been involved with athletics for most of his life. Playing several sports in high school and college helped him better understand how the body works and how the muscles interconnect - experience that he applies to everyone he treats. With that base of knowledge to inspire him, he went on to earn his doctorate of chiropractic degree before entering the field and to establish a practice that focuses on connecting with clients on a personal level to fulfill their unique needs. As his practice has grown, so have his treatments, which now encompass mechanical massage to help relax muscles, stretching and strengthening exercises, as well as chiropractic adjustments.
