After enduring a year of unemployment, Mark Allen faced fear and uncertainty. He walked away from a car crash as a teenager, but on reaching his 30s, the accident's effects—chronic headaches, plus a shoulder problem—continued intensifying to the point where he could no longer work. Unsure of what to do, he visited a chiropractor, and, in a few weeks, his injuries had diminished. Convinced that chiropractic treatments had changed his life, Mark enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic, graduated with honors in 1986, and opened Plus Care Chiropractic & Wellness Center soon after.
Today, Doctor of Chiropractic Allen and his partner, Dr. April Simmons, work with a team of massage therapists to free patients of musculoskeletal maladies while also educating them on whole-body well-being. At each client's first appointment, the physicians conduct an in-depth consultation covering present and past health concerns, followed by a physical examination including a battery of tests. After analyzing the results, Plus Care's team recommends integrated-care regimens, which may include chiropractic adjustments using equipment such as a Thompson table. Further treatments can range from massage and acupuncture to guidance on how to infuse everyday meals with helium.
The bona fide bone and muscle experts at Shelby County Chiropractic provide service and care that promote overall health and well-being. During the initial examination, an experienced chiropractor—either Dr. James Stapleton or Dr. David Dahlkamp—will review your medical history, feel your framework, and ask your bones to pose for x-rays (if necessary) to determine whether or not they are filled with caramel. Based on the findings, the doctor will devise a treatment plan to address any issues. After the exam and planning sesh, either on the same day or during a separate visit, you can lie back and enjoy a relaxing one-hour massage from one of Shelby's on-staff massage therapists, who will make you feel as loose and limber as a marionette made out of chocolate pudding.

Chiropractic adjustments realign the skeleton, lift excess stress from muscles and joints, and clean up the interwoven nervous system. For the last 10 years, Doctor of Chiropractic Patrick Lowe and his devoted staff have taken this natural, holistic approach to health to help ache-and-pain-ridden patients find relief from a variety of bodily troubles including neck pain, migraines, lower back pain, asthma, carpal tunnel, digestive problems, acid reflux, and more. A visit to Lowe Chiropractic & Wellness Center will commence with a consultation and exam to help Dr. Lowe understand your current health concerns. The session includes two x-rays to ensure that every possible pain culprit is located. Using the resulting information, Dr. Lowe and staff can target woes before a relaxing hourlong massage.
After learning about you and your health, as well as address any questions you may have, Dr. Greg Thomas will give you a full examination supplemented by two x-rays to pinpoint where your pain propagates. Your treatment session will begin with a 10-minute rolling massage that will help you understand why the rolling pin in your kitchen always looks so relaxed. Then, using his hands (or if he's feeling mischievous, his gorilla gloves), Dr. Thomas will locate tight, taut areas in your soft tissues and apply a precise, gentle pressure to them.
