Dr. Corey Carwile of Tidewater Wellness Centers recognizes that not everyone is an athlete—though Dr. Carwile did play soccer in college— the licensed chiropractor takes the time to customize treatments to fit the needs and health goals of each client. The doctor alleviates headaches, muscle soreness, and body aches with traditional adjustment techniques as well as with computerized instruments from Pulstar and Impulse iQ that chart progress digitally. The office also offers massage from a licensed therapist, exercise instruction, Lipo-Light treatments, and better lifestyle guidance than a Magic 8-Ball inside a fortune cookie.
When Dr. Tiso says he treats patients of all ages, he really means it. The chiropractor's youngest patient to date was three months old. His oldest? 96 years. Ailments like aches, pains, migraines, and numbness don't discriminate by age, and are often caused by misalignments in the spine. Dr. Tiso specializes in treating these kinds of alignment issues?also known as vertebral subluxations?using the Gonstead method. The Gonstead method is a specific approach to chiropractic that uses five criteria to pinpoint the exact location where a spinal adjustment should occur. Because the adjustments made with the Gonstead system are so specific, patients often experience a speedier recovery, so they can get back to their normal work, gym, school, or crab walking routines as soon as possible.
Driven by an interest in helping people to heal without the use of medicine, Taehee Cho became a licensed acupuncturist in 2008 and opened NUGA Acupuncture Clinic in March 2011. Each acupuncture session begins with a short consultation, in which Taehee evaluates the body's flow of energy as a whole before adjusting it with acupuncture needles. His acupuncture treatments aim to relieve both the underlying causes and the symptoms of diverse ailments, including musculoskeletal pain, migraines, gastrointestinal problems, and bones that swap places in the night. Other services include cosmetic acupuncture and the herb rejuvenation peel, which resurfaces facial skin without harsh chemicals, and the skin-smoothing DermaPen, which uses micro-needles to smooth fine lines and stretch marks while minimizing pores and scars.

Benjamin Fitzer, the Doctor of Chiropractic behind Fitzer Chiropractic & Wellness, works like a detective. Using a whole-person approach, he doesn't merely treat the symptoms, but seeks out the underlying, sometimes hidden causes that brought the problem to life.
