Amid walls adorned with varicolored, spinal-themed prints, the trio of chiropractors at Tri-City Chiropractic—Drs. Jeff A. Kelly, Joe Chmielewski, and Guy Giordano—helps patients obtain healthy spinal cords and lifestyles with a two-pronged approach. First, they aim for pain relief; then, they teach patients how to stay well through continual chiropractic care. To accomplish this, they use an array of adjustment techniques, such as decompression, massage therapy, and trigger-point therapy. They also use the ProAdjuster, a nonforceful, computerized spinal-adjusting instrument that taps on each vertebra and listens as it regains healthy positioning or hits a high E.
At family-owned Rodnick Chiropractic Life Centers, doctors preach healthier bodies through straighter spines at four different area locations. Each doctor amasses a detailed medical history and conducts a subtle search of the body for subluxations?vertebral misalignments that cause nerve stress. The doctors use specific low-force adjustments to add motion to the spinal joints and help restore normal mobility and balance. They also solve spinal queries on their local television broadcast, Ask the Chiropractor. On the show, they educate guests about chiropractic wellness and perform pro bono adjustments on bent boom mics.

Cortney Alvarez recognizes that people who need massages often need to fight stress as much as they need to fight physical pain and tension. So she opened Kneaded Thoughts Massage & Mental Health Counseling, a wellness center where people could take care of their stress and mental well-being through body treatments and counseling.
There, she and her fellow practitioners create custom wellness plans for each client, helping them with everything from therapeutic and pregnancy massages to Reiki treatments. They also lend an ear whenever the client needs to discuss a personal problem or rant about the latest book club book that everyone else seemed to enjoy.
