Doctor of Chiropractic Stacy Cohen founded First State Health & Wellness shortly after he received his degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984. Since then, his center has expanded to six locations and welcomed aboard 12 other chiropractic physicians.
Each location features traditional adjustment techniques and Activator tools that rapidly and gently prod trouble spots. A few locations feature specialty techniques such as the Newark location's high-tech subluxation scanning and the Wilmington location's adjustable Thompson Terminal Point table made up of several different cushions that help it morph into an even more therapeutic surface: a ping-pong table.
Dr. Cohen and his staff complement their chiropractic touch with acupuncture, massage, and nutritional counseling services, which are overseen by the center's own licensed acupuncturists and certified massage therapists. Together, the team's collective efforts have been awarded The News Journal's Reader's Choice Award for Best Chiropractic Office in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2003 and 2009.
With more than 40 years of experience between the two of them, Doctors of Chiropractic Brian Chandler and Robert LaDuca are well versed in combining state-of-the-art chiropractic treatments with personalized patient care. At Back in Action Chiropractic, their injury-rehabilitation center, they perform comprehensive adjustments by hand and machine to treat spine and joint trauma. They also lead a team consisting of a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapists, who ease tension with Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massages. The center also sells healthcare items, ranging from CryoDerm pain-relief products to orthotics.
Drs. Richard McKay and Shaun Rinow were both introduced to chiropractic medicine by incidents in their own lives. Dr. McKay’s son was born with his feet twisted inward. While working as a deliveryman, Dr. Rinow threw his back out lifting a heavy box. Fortunately, both doctors were able to find help in a combination of manual chiropractic adjustments and at-home exercises.
Since teaming up in 1986, the duo has worked to give their patients the same healing benefits they experienced firsthand. They hunt down biomechanical problems or misalignments in the spine, locating disruptive discs and replacing them with smooth vinyl records. Through precise manual pressures, they can nudge discs into healthier positions and thereby relieve chronic issues such as back pain, headaches, and joint stiffness.
Under the guidance of clinic director Dr. Timothy Gober, DC, the wellness professionals at White Marsh Healthcare and Physical Medicine help patients to identify food intolerances with the ALCAT blood test. During this test, a technician introduces assorted foods, additives, colorings, and chemicals to a vial of drawn blood and observes the reaction under a microscope.
Visitors to Delaware Chiropractic find their corporeal kinks vaporized by a staff of experienced and amiable therapists under the attentive aegis of Drs. Brian Mowll and Joseph Scordo. Muscle-menacing knots and gnarls melt away under the deep, flowing strokes of a Swedish massage, which improves dorsal dexterity and leaves bodies as calm and limber as a bungee-jumping Dalai Lama. Besides triggering the body’s relaxation receptors, massage therapy is thought to complement overall physical wellness by shoring up vital muscular systems against daily wear and tear, pervasive stress, and sewer-spelunking injuries. After loosening ligaments with today’s deal, clients can appease jealous nervous and skeletal systems with Delaware Chiropractic’s full range of spine-refining services.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Scott E. Rosenthal, taking over the family business meant stepping into the shoes of his chiropractor father and helming a practice more than 40 years old. Inspired by his father's work, he set out to straighten backbones and nurture the health of others by learning all he could about chiropractic care. But he didn't stop there—a passion for health and wellness led him to become a registered yoga teacher and earn certification in the Webster technique of pediatric care. His studies also enabled him to become an expert in nutrition and the writer of a monthly column for Living Well Magazine that discusses the pros of a healthy diet, nutritious foods, and breathing.
All of this knowledge serves to bolster the health of Rosenthal Chiropractic's patients. Dr. Rosenthal's chiropractic services for adults, children, and expecting mothers keep them healthy from head to toe, and he performs specific treatments that address more troublesome disc problems. Free, in-office health classes hosted by the staff impart tips on eating healthy, stress reduction, and exercise for corporate workers.
