With a practice located inside the Pav YMCA health club, Doctor of Chiropractic Daniel V. Fortuna doesn't seem like a regular chiropractor. That's because he isn't. He doesn't limit his care to treating back-related illness, and he takes full advantage of the facilities at the YMCA. Before treatments, he sits down one-on-one with patients to craft the best plan of care for them, often relying on aquatic and physical therapy.
His back-adjusting services treat all kinds of ailments, from the pain of arthritis and migraines to soothing whiplash or disc injuries. His expertise gives him the ability to remedy sports-related injuries as well, and patients with osteoporosis find relief under his gentle adjustments. He pays special attention to new patients, as his mission statement is to work with newcomers to realize uncompromising excellence in medical care.
As a certified chiropractor since 1986, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Banuelos brings a wealth of expertise to every consultation and spinal adjustment. If a patient has issues that can't be treated with chiropractic care alone, he works together with medical specialists to devise a plan for treatment.

The team kneads away aches and releases tension with more than a dozen massage modalities. Swedish massage boosts circulation with long, flowing strokes, table Thai massage increases flexibility with assisted stretching, and Dojo sports massage relies on a special lotion to treat sore muscles. The signature massage includes extras such as aromatherapy, hot stones, and a scalp massage that proves more satisfying than repeatedly walking under trees with low-hanging branches. Verde's therapists also inject some diversity into the center's services with their slate of reflexology and chakra-balancing therapies.
Reavy Rehab's staff tends to tense frames with clinical massages administered inside a physical therapy facility that has attracted clients such as professional athletes Dwyane Wade and Matt Forte. During one-hour deep-tissue sessions, a licensed massage therapist prods protoplasm in search of aches or knots left by mischievous midshipmen. By applying pressure to precise points, deep-tissue massage can help lower blood pressure, ease joint movement, and convince migraines to migrate elsewhere. Guests who wake up in the morning feeling like they were hastily assembled by elves the night before can alternatively apply the value of their Groupon toward a physical therapy session ($250/hour) to nurse less-than-blissful backs back to health.
Laronda Kelley, the licensed massage therapist at Isario's Therapeutic Touch, specializes in therapeutic massages that use heat and aromatherapy to soothe sore muscles.
