Doctor of Chiropractic Quan Nguyen’s goal is to improve the overall wellness of his clients through small changes in the lifestyle and behaviors. His specialties are diverse, ranging from physiotherapy and acupuncture to fertility treatments and chiropractic care. Dr. Nguyen also specializes in natal care. At his Calibrate Health practice, he often works directly with ob-gyns to treat symptoms such as prenatal nausea, depression, and labor anesthesia, and also provides patients with post-natal therapy.
Gene Aiello, a doctor of chiropractic and licensed acupuncturist, works alongside a talented team of three to aid patients at Advanced Chiropractic Care and Acupuncture, Ltd. His team, another chiropractic and acupuncturist and two massage therapists, uses detailed neurological and orthopedic assessments to bolster health amid equipment for x-rays and lab tests. The information they glean allows Drs. Aiello and John Kim to create treatment plans that include low-force chiropractic techniques, several physical therapies, and massage, among other services. Allergy testing also plays its part—using kinesiology, Dr. Aiello can use a laser acupuncture treatment to desensitize the patients, finally allowing them to play in freshly cut grass or see why freshly cut grass isn’t a popular ice-cream flavor.
Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills. In addition to MedSpa services including laser hair removal and VelaShape body smoothing and contouring, Health First Wellness Center also offers yoga, Zumba, and Pilates classes.
Various wellness services are offered under the same roof at Wellocity Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. Physical therapy places an emphasis on facilitating mobility by using specialized techniques to increase joints' range of motion, strengthen weakened muscles, or improve coordination and balance. Acupuncture sessions aim to restore a sense of balance by clearing energy-blocking elements, such as balloon animals clinging to clients' backs. The center even offers physician-supervised weight-loss programs, which use a combination of nutritional counseling and recommended exercise regimens to help individuals meet their goals.
Dr. Jeremy Barone is more than a chiropractor. Yes, he performs spinal adjustments using the upper cervical method⎯a technique that eschews the cracking backs of traditional therapies in favor of gentler adjustments. But he also runs Barone Performance, where he provides clients with multipoint assessments and physical training programs that are customized to their age and ability. Programs aim to improve clients’ posture, strength, and stability, which they can test at home by standing up straight while balancing a book on their head, patting their stomach, and busting out some bicep curls.
Dr. Chirag H. Shah, a doctor of chiropractic and licensed acupuncturist, has treated some important spines?pro-baseball pitcher Carlos Zambrano's, for one. And he gives star-quality treatment to patients who don't play pro sports, too, adjusting their vertebrae to help dissolve back and neck pain. Dr. Shah doesn't overestimate his specialty, either. He views chiropractics as one of many pain-relief treatments, and in that spirit, he is also a licensed acupuncturist and has licensed massage therapists on staff.
