Doctor of chiropractic Ron Fried has treated countless sports-related injuries throughout his 20-year career, many of which occurred during his stint as the chiropractor for the Detroit Lions. Today his services are available at his eponymous chiropractic and wellness center, where he and his staff offer spinal adjustments, massage therapy, nutritional counseling, and, physiotherapy.
Chiropractors treat much more than back pain – something Dr. Ken McCauley learned at the age of 19. Suffering from debilitating migraines, Dr. McCauley reached out to a chiropractor after countless medical doctors unsuccessfully treated his skull-splitting episodes. The relief from the first adjustment was instantaneous, and that moment spearheaded his excursion to chiropractic school.
Now a chiropractor himself, Dr. McCauley sweeps away migraines, neck and back pain, and joint injuries from sports such as football or raucous bocce ball matches. He accomplishes these feats with a variety of chiropractic techniques and on-staff massage therapists dispensing kneading sessions.
Dynamic Chiropractic Centers' chiropractic doctors aim to treat aches and pains while also focusing on preventative care. The team takes a "whole body approach," which means proactively treating imbalances that could one day develop into more serious issues. The doctors also complement treatments with postural screenings, which can discover spinal ailments such as a cracked vertebrae. Massage therapists address other non-chiropractic needs.
Jeffrey Remer, owner of Eight Gate, applies 21 years of studying Eastern healing techniques to each of his treatments.

He strives to foster health in his clients by working in harmony with Western medicine and in vocal harmony with passing barbershop quartets.
At Integral Life Center, chiropractor Dr. Lawrence Bell draws on his specialties in Sameta, Network Spinal Analysis, Somato Respiratory Integration, and a range of other healing techniques.

Network Spinal Analysis sessions use light, directed touches designed to release healing waves and relieve spinal tensions.
