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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Curtis J. Haake didn't always answer to "Doctor." He was actually on active duty in the Air Force when he sustained a back injury that forced him to return stateside. Seeking relief from pain, the Gulf War veteran naturally gravitated toward the health field and found his solution in chiropractic medicine.
Curtis was so blown away by chiropractic that he devoted his life to its study and practice. Today, Dr. Haake expertly examines and adjusts spines, but his services extend beyond traditional chiropractic care. His background as a health coach enables him to design complete wellness plans that incorporate exercise, nutrition, and a general avoidance of grizzly bears. He also provides his clients with online resources that pertain to diet and overall wellness.
With seven years of experience as a massage therapist and three as a chiropractor, Doctor of Chiropractic Max Lippman knows the ins and outs of musculature. Dr. Lippman and his team of massage therapists apply their skilled hands to therapeutic massages and adjustments that help their clients heal from everyday aches or painful sports or auto injuries. The doctor takes his time to listen to each patient who comes in, and learns about their situations while helping them develop a treatment plan customized to their wellness goals. Dr. Lippman keeps communication lines open during treatments, too, staying well away from pain thresholds while skirting the healthful discomfort often associated with receiving deep-tissue massages or acupuncture with pencils.
While Dr. Lippman looks out for patients’ health, Plaza Chiropractic and Massage Therapy takes care of the environment. The ultramodern office eschews the use of paper by booking appointments online and running systems on organically-grown iPads and touchscreens.
