Doctors of Chiropractic Eric Janowitz and Chad Rose and their team bolster clients’ health with massages, chiropractic adjustments, and diagnoses of imbalances in spinal alignment. Both Dr. Janowitz and Dr. Rose employ high-tech and traditional hands-on tactics in their practice, from nonsurgical spinal-decompression therapy to cold-laser therapy, which uses a heat-free light beam. The center’s DTS Triton system generates computerized traction, which can help clients with chronic pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, and other ailments. To give back to the community, the chiropractors organize stress-relief breaks in schools and adjust the posture of storefront mannequins.

Since Bill is also an accomplished and published astrologer, he utilizes that expertise to achieve unique viewpoints during hypnoanalysis sessions.
Dr. Marc Ott has learned much about the human body in his years of treating sore muscles and spinal conditions, but one lesson stands out. “It's rare that what has made one patient better will be the same for the next,” he claims, and in keeping with this belief he and his staff strive to integrate traditional and alternative practices within their customized health-care plans.
More often than not, these plans involve some combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy. The former can relieve chronic pains with spinal adjustments, nutritional counseling, and holistic lifestyle advice, while the latter targets adhesions with Swedish, deep-tissue, and lymphatic-drainage techniques. These treatments—along with specialized procedures such as joint injections—can provide long-lasting relief from injuries sustained while playing sports or leveling parking meters with your monster truck.
