When Brett Caminez was still in high school, a skiing injury felt like an unfortunate introduction to chiropractic care. Luckily, chiropractic techniques essentially healed what could have been a roadblock to his athletic pursuits, and the experience made a lasting impression on him. These days, Doctor of Chiropractic Caminez treats patients at Caminez Chiropractic. He combines the technology of EMG scans and x-rays with holistic know-how, correcting issues such as sore muscles or postures thrown askew by mismatched stilts. When he's not performing adjustments, he still likes to strap on skis and take to the hills.

Licensed doctor of chiropractic Howard Kessler treats chronic pain and promotes long-term wellness with an arsenal of ameliorating modalities and procedures. During the patient's first visit, the chiropractor inspects the form and function of skeletal architecture with a consultation and x-ray, followed by an initial adjustment to restore proper vertebrae placement and replace any Jenga pieces that have dislodged and floated away. In subsequent visits, Dr. Kessler conducts two more treatments to reverse any harmful subluxations and unpinch the precious spinal nerves that connect to all muscles and major organs. In addition to healing injury and preventing chronic pain with expertly administered adjustments, Dr. Kessler further pursues the body's well being with a range of treatments including massage ($22), neuromuscular reduction ($25), manual traction ($20), or therapeutic tickling.
