Owner and director Dr. Dan McAleer founded Kingswood Chiropractic Center in the hope of guiding patients toward healthier lives. Along with fellow back-wrangler Dr. Alison Ramsden, Dr. McAleer aims to address problems before they start, identifying the root cause of discomfort and illness rather than merely treating the symptoms with medicine and candy bribes. The pair of doctors and their savvy staff instill comfort and well-being in patients through services such as exams, adjustments, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling. A free online membership supplements the custom wellness-and-treatment plans the team cooks up.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I was looking for a way to help people feel better and get well without the need for a lot of medication. I feel there is a need for the integration of Eastern and Western medicine to give individuals a whole-body healthy life.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
Acupuncture continues to surprise me in how it helps people feel better with such tiny needles.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The body has the amazing ability to heal itself, and acupuncture helps to boost that process.
Racing motorcycles gave Doctor of Chiropractic Erik M. Fotheringham quite a thrill. Unfortunately, it also gave him a lot of pain. So—realizing he had already used up all his wishes from his pet genie—he set up an appointment with the local chiropractor. The results were so astounding that his desire to become a dentist changed into a passion for chiropractic medicine.
At Active Health Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Fotheringham focuses his recovery efforts on sports and family chiropractic care. He uses manual adjustments and other therapies to treat everything from migraines to whiplash to tingling in the limbs.
Dr. Frank and the rest of the staff are focused on eliminating chronic pain and ailments. They use chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic exercises to alleviate scoliosis, headaches, fibromyalgia, and numbness in the hands, feet, or phantom limbs. Their services also help patients suffering from car accidents or sports injuries. But while they work tirelessly to relieve aches, they don't forget to make sure their patients are comfortable, too. They take the time to carefully explain what patients can expect in an appointment, and even provide each client with a tour of the office.
Tender backbones sigh with relief under the skilled hands of Dr. Wallace C. Ross, who draws from more than three decades of experience in easing pain. He plies his healing trade with adjustments and massage, each geared toward the same goal: to help the body heal without the use of drugs or surgery. When not treating patients' joints, spines, or nervous systems, he turns them over to the on-staff massage therapist, who goes to work on muscular ailments with Swedish, sports, and Thai massage.
