Doctor of Chiropractic Dale Hanson not only heals patients with chiropractic adjustments but also with less traditional healing systems. The Pettibon system relies on gentle muscle stretching and strengthening to build resistance to injury, and the Allergicare system uses noninvasive cold lasers and biofeedback to build resistance to high pollen counts or earrings made from beehives. As an athlete, Dr. Hanson is especially interested in health issues facing the sports community, so he continuously takes classes on injury rehab, nutrition, and neuromuscular reeducation.
Acupuncture physician. Advanced study in Chinese herbology. Certification in Chinese herbal medicine. One look at Samantha Cheever's resume reveals her specialty in holistic medicine. At Optimal Living Clinic, she unblocks the body's energy pathways with the ancient art of acupuncture—her services, however, don't stop there. She also provides nutritional plans, helps clients quit smoking, and performs Chinese herbal medicine, which relies on natural remedies that prevent and treat imbalances while building up the body's immune system.

A woman enters a chiropractic clinic, but she's not there to talk about a stiff back, a knot in her neck, or even sinus pressure. Just a short time before, the woman underwent a surgery that resulted in a clipped nerve, adversely affecting both her uterus and bladder. Recognizing that an adjustment would offer little relief, Dr. William Buhrman Jr. instead applies Avicenna laser therapy to encourage tissue regeneration. He soon receives a call from his patient, during which the woman tells him she's regained use of her bladder.
A second-generation chiropractor, Dr. Buhrman takes an integrative approach to structural care and rehabilitation, beginning with orthopedic and neurological evaluations to identify what treatment methods will most positively impact each patient's whole-body health. Dr. Buhrman then designs a care regimen, which may combine therapies such as massage, custom nutrition based on a gene SNP DNA screening analysis, and jetpacks that reduce the impact of walking.
