For Better Health & Wellness Center's Clinic Director LeiLani M. Vidal, there is no such thing as knowing enough. Though she already holds a doctorate and is a board-certified chiropractor, qualified medical examiner, and licensed aesthetician, Dr. Vidal routinely attends advanced training sessions to learn new chiropractic techniques. When not scrawling or skywriting notes, Dr. Vidal can be found educating others during volunteer shifts at the Foundation for Wellness Professionals.
To further broaden her practice's available treatments, Dr. Vidal has assembled an experienced team of professionals from a variety of fields. Massage practitioners ease patients' stresses through reduction therapies, and personal trainers employ their talents as a certified strength-and-conditioning specialists to help improve muscle health. A traditional Chinese medical practitioner brandishes acupuncture and Chinese herbology techniques to soothe bodily stresses without pharmaceuticals or roomfuls of humming grandmothers.
In place of invasive medical procedures and prescription medications, Dr. Yaneil Maharaj?just "Dr. Neil" to his clients?employs a more personalized approach, addressing symptoms and their underlying causes simultaneously. He accomplishes this by using chiropractic techniques to check for misaligned vertebrae or muscular tension then, through chiropractic adjustments as well as massage, using hands-on therapy to restore the nervous system to its full potential. As Dr. Neil believes, when the nervous system functions without impairment, the body's natural healing processes are able to function more effectively, helping to not only relieve chronic aches but also stave off future injury and keep the brain from moving into a new body.
Educated at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Jon L. Walwick draws from 20 years of experience in helping heal patients with natural, noninvasive means. For him, the spine is the keystone of the body. In its duty of sending messages to and from the brain, the spinal cord branches out in a network of nerve fibers, some threaded precariously between vertebrae that can bite down and halt the flow of signals to an entire region. Dr. Walwick’s gentle adjustments free up such pinched nerves, allowing the nerve to continue functioning and the body to recover from resulting illness as well as pain.
Dr. Rosanna Perez treats back pain, neck pain, work, and driving-related injuries using a blend of chiropractic techniques and holistic healthcare methods. She realigns spines via a series of manual adjustments while massage therapists can be called on to knead surrounding muscles through Swedish and deep-tissue massages. She also offers colon-hydrotherapy sessions, which purge any lingering toxins or misguided ghosts from the body. Dr. Perez has spent time working alongside psychologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists to help children suffering from autism, cerebral palsy, and scoliosis.
