The athletic trainers at Stretch U work to improve athletic performance with a special, noninvasive stretching technique. This technique, called the Carey stretch, is designed to remove pressure from the body’s network of nerves. Their premise is simple: when nerves are pinched by tight muscles and tendons, they can’t fire off signals as efficiently. By stretching these muscles and tendons, the team can boost athletic performance and increase range of motion in people of virtually all ages.

Before she opened the first Passport Health office in Baltimore in 1994, registered nurse Fran Lessans taught students looking to provide much-needed health care to inaccessible areas of the world. It was often an uphill battle: incomplete immunization services and hard-to-find medical information caused unnecessary hurdles for globetrotters. Lessans decided to remedy the situation by building a one-stop clinic for all travel shots, boosters, and counseling. Today, Passport Health?s scores of locations dedicate themselves to all immunization needs. Teams of doctors and qualified medical professionals prepare tourists and groups for international vacations or humanitarian work with vaccinations against yellow fever, hepatitis, and malaria. The clinics can also support patients? health with vitamin B12 injections or safeguard against the flu or common cootie strains. Blood testing and lab work deliver results within a 48-hour period, and comprehensive physicals provide thorough inspections for pre-employment, immigration, and school applications.
