Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Castiglione has been realigning spines for nearly 20 years. In addition to fixing backs, his adjustments help alleviate migraines, hip pain, and sports injuries. When not in the office, he also serves as the athletics chiropractor for Upland High School and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Many people associate chiropractic care with sore backs. Jeremy Bernath, a doctor of chiropractic, ends up working with a much broader group of patients, though. At HealthStrong Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, he oversees a team working to treat carpal tunnel, headaches, and a range of other issues. Because the back is connected to so many other systems, simple adjustments to the spine or changes in posture can help. The crew also relies on a range of high-tech equipment, x-ray machines, and computers that aren't grossed out by the human body.
At The Body Center, a staff of physical therapists works with Pilates instructors to mend injured bodies while strengthening clients’ defenses against future discomfort. Individualized treatment plans help clients overcome the effects of auto accidents or sporting mishaps, such as trying to swim laps in an ice rink. The fleet of Stott-certified Pilates instructors take participants to the next fitness level by guiding them through a series of intricate moves on specialized equipment. Before stopping by for an appointment, consider loading the car with any unwanted backpacks, clothing, or baby supplies, as The Body Center serves as a collection site for local charities.
The chiropractors at Abundant Life Chiropractic focus not only on localized symptoms, but take the whole body into account when treating pain and illnesses. In addition to treating back pain with spinal adjustments, they also offer nutritional guidance and prenatal and pediatric care.
The pain sets in quickly––a wrench in the neck, a sore back, knotted shoulders. Or perhaps the tension is the culmination of years spent at a desk or performing one too many giraffe impressions. The best tonic for this kind of pain is often the skill set of a certified massage therapist. Certified Hands Massage Therapy sends soothing ripples through achy musculature with a dynamic array of massage modalities. The licensed massage therapists use light to moderate Swedish strokes, or access lower-layer muscles with the firm pressure of deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques. They can also employ sports massages to improve range of motion in athletes and range of emotion in actors who play them on TV.
