Doctor of Chiropractic Justin Page welcomes patients into a sunny, calming office where he spreads his passion for healthy living, much like a nutritionist who plants veggies in unwitting neighbors’ yards. He recalibrates spines in the comfort of a private room or right next to the waiting area, where chiropractic chairs wait for charges to sit and reap the effects of treatment. Suggestions for pain-busting alterations to daily living ignite confidence in patients as they make their way out the door or through the ventilation system.
During a digital tour of Dynamic Medical, Chiropractic and Rehab's 5,000-square-foot facility, Doctor of Chiropractic Paul Constante explained, "What we want to do is find a beginning date and an end date to your problem and actually get the problems fixed." To this effect, the clinic's entire team meets on a daily basis to discuss each patient and develop an effective course of action. Medical doctors, chiropractors, neurologists, rehab therapists, and a neurosurgeon attend this meeting, sharing expertise by whispering into one another's stethoscopes. The clinic specializes in 15 different conditions, including fibromyalgia, insomnia, and back pain, and seeks to resolve these issues with holistic, drug-free therapies, such as massage or spinal decompressions. For more serious ailments, the team may recommend trigger-point therapy or platelet-rich plasma injections.
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.

After studying at Palmer College of Chiropractic, he spent seven months traveling to Thailand, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Peru living as a local and delivering chiropractic care to hundreds who may not have had access to it otherwise. Today, his practice sees patients as young as 1 day old and as wise as 97 years of age, who seek out his staff's expertise in everything from spinal adjustments and active therapies to massage. Holding degrees in chiropractic and biology, and certified with the Acupuncture Society of America, Dr. Martin also enjoys educating the community through health classes and staged readings of his spine-theme haikus.
Chiropractic adjustments realign the skeleton, lift excess stress from muscles and joints, and clean up the interwoven nervous system.
