Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Farmer needed a chiropractor before he became one. Suffering from scoliosis as a child, he went to his family chiropractor, whose hands-on techniques kept him out of the operatory and in sports. Wanting to take costly, risky surgery out of the equation for others, Dr. Farmer attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, the world's oldest chiropractic school, where he eventually became a teacher.
Now ensconced at Orlando Chiropractic and Physical Rehab, LLC, Dr. Farmer treats his patients with spinal rehabilitation therapy (SRT). This therapy seeks to reverse the five components of spinal injury, such as pain and loss of motion, with a combination of traditional chiropractic adjustments, massage, and physical rehab. He and the team demonstrate their devotion to patients by taking time to get to know them during consultations and listening to questions and concerns while helping devise a treatment plan. If, through careful examination, Dr. Farmer believes he can't help a patient, he and the staff work to locate someone who can, either through extensive research or by making smoke signals in doctor script.
WFTV's Bob Opsahl says he "was a mess" before Dr. Tamara Fox helped him recover from elbow, wrist, and lower-back pain. His is one of many success stories that back up Dr. Fox's practice, where traditional and technological treatments banish pain and restore balance. She has a holistic, comprehensive perspective on biology, and after years of performing spinal adjustments, she's a seasoned pro. Dr. Fox is also dedicated to spending as much time as necessary with every client, eschewing "drive-thru service" in favor of thorough, attentive appointments that are free of cheeseburgers.

When greeting new clients, the receptionists and medical staff at Victoria Med Spa can listen to concerns, analyze needs, and talk about the weather in Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, or Greek, as well as English. These same therapists then treat injuries or bolster general well-being through custom weight-loss plans and holistic treatments backed by medical-grade equipment. Medical staffers man FDA-approved Venus Freeze radio frequency to tighten skin and reduce the volume of fatty tissue, or perform teeth-whitening treatments to leave pearlies ready to gnaw through velvet ropes. Slow sighs drift from treatment rooms in which therapists gently knead muscles during deep-tissue massages.
As part of each service, mugs of hot herbal tea warm hands and unfurl delicate floral aromas. The staff also promote mental well-being by surrounding patients with sea-foam-green walls, eclectic artwork, and candles, and by handpicking each musical note as it emerges from the spa stereo.
During the 1980s, bars in Japan began serving aromatic cocktails that would clear the mind, leave recipients refreshed and energized, and were safe for consumption by children. This tradition continues at 02 Breathe, where patrons safely fill lungs with four to five times the amount of pure oxygen found in air, the vapor comingling with a choice of 19 fragrances. Using technology developed by NASA, nonmedical oxygen concentrators filter gasses such as argon and nitrogen from the air, isolating the life-giving molecule to about a 90% purity level. Fragrance blends, such as balancing earl grey or soothing sugar cookie, are borne into sinuses via water molecules, so they are safe for ingestion and for mixing with oxygen. Given that the 02 crew's libations are as light as the air we all walk on, their sleek black bar topped with rainbow vials can be easily transported to locations ranging from sporting events to birthday parties.
With more than 20 years of combined experience as a critical-care RN and a chiropractor, Doctor of Chiropractic Roslyn Thompson holds an intimate understanding of how to help the body to heal itself. Using a gentle approach, she sets clients at ease as she seeks out and corrects vertebral subluxations—or misalignments of vertebrae—that interfere with the nervous system's ability to function properly or finish its tell-all memoir. Dr. Thompson also aims to help her patients to deal with a range of conditions, from physical woes such as chronic pain, migraines, and arthritis to less apparent ailments such as memory loss, depression, and anxiety.
Orlando Chiropractor David Nahali centers his chiropractic care around an FDA-cleared spinal-decompression system that helps him especially treat chronic neck and back pain. While performing these spinal decompressions, Dr. Nahali relieves pressure on the vertebrae by gently separating squashed disks, and cold laser therapy offers a non-intrusive alternative to acupuncture and surgery. Classic decompressions and cold laser therapy are joined by therapies such as cryotherapy, electrical muscle stimulation, and hydromassage, helping patients fight their sciatica and bulging disks so they can quickly return to the activities they enjoy, such as playing sports or spying on squirrels.
