Doctor of Chiropractic Kristin Mattingly’s tenure on her high-school softball and volleyball teams did not go without injuries. To ease her pain, the teenager visited a chiropractor, and the resulting success paved the way for a future career as a chiropractor. Now with 8 years under her belt, Dr. Mattingly straightens spines and alleviates pain from daily routines and auto accidents for patients of all ages. She even had her daughter adjusted within the first hour of her life to ensure she kept her health optimal.
The doctor and staff of Antioch Family Chiropractic provide holistic treatment that alleviates pain while correcting the cause of it. They do that with deep-tissue laser treatments, gentle spinal decompression, and other alternatives to surgery such as massage and physical therapy. Programs of corrective exercise as well as nutritional counseling are two other means they employ to bring about overall wellness and optimal health. These methods can be applied to patients suffering various aches and pains such as lower-back pain, whiplash, and sports injuries.
Dr. Dan Jardin says he still remembers that jolt of pain as if it happened yesterday. During a basketball game, he went for a rebound and was pushed down, landing hard on his lower back. There was a “pop,” then the most intense pain. A trip to a doctor and prescription medicine did nothing to alleviate the searing pain. Three weeks later, Dr. Jardin visited a chiropractor at the urging of a friend. The chiropractor performed a manual adjustment, and the pain started to dissipate. That moment cemented into Dr. Jardin’s memory and became the driving factor in him becoming a chiropractor, so that he could help others facing the same discomfort.
On any given day, Dr. Jardin sees new patients at wit’s end, for they have tried everything else possible to alleviate their pain, just like he did so many years ago. His adjustments help relieve headaches, carpal-tunnel syndrome, athletic injuries, and numbness in limbs.
Although committed to rapidly reducing patients’ pain, the chiropractic team at Delta Spine & Sportcare knows that overall health isn’t always achieved with a quick adjustment. That’s why they incorporate considerations such as nutrition and daily exercise with their noninvasive massages, decompression treatments, and kinesio taping. As a result, wellness plans are customized to fit each individual’s specific needs as snuggly as a tailor-made swim cap.
In 85 offices across the country, chiropractors combine their skills and decades of experience to alleviate soreness and stiffness caused by spinal conditions. In all New Beginnings Chiropractic Offices, chiropractors receive coaching, the most up-to-date training, and daily reports on the condition of the earth?s enormous spinal column.
As an award-winning college-football player and a member of the U.S. Olympic bobsled team from 2002 to 2006, Dr. John Caponio is no stranger to athletic injuries and strains. In fact, it was an injury sustained while lifting weights that first led him to chiropractic care. After receiving a chiropractic adjustment, he was back to training in just three days.
That experience led Dr. Caponio to pursue a career in chiropractic. At Caponio Chiropractic, he treats issues ranging from back pain to mood disorders with a comforting demeanor and adjustments that realign the spine. Soothing massages tame muscles, and nutritional-counseling sessions help patients improve all aspects of their health.
