The story behind 19 Dollar Chiropractic's name is short and simple: spinal adjustments for walk-in patients cost just $19. That, paired with the clinic's $45 massages, helps Doctor of Chiropractic Michael McKellar and his staff introduce more patients to the benefits of chiropractic care. In addition to traditional techniques, the clinic also hosts noninvasive laser therapy treatments that alleviate pain caused by everything from recently tweaked backs to chronic conditions such as being a Hartford Whalers fan.
At ProActive Health & Wellness, a skilled staff revitalizes worn-down or overstressed bodies through chiropractic care, nutritional guidance, and massage therapy. The expert hands and trained eye of a licensed therapist perform customized massages and chiropractic exams, helping to identify sources of discomfort and pinpointing your coccyx’s reading comprehension level.
Since the body is its own best doctor, Doctor of Chiropractic Gerald W. Zurinsky Jr.—or Dr. Z—believes patients should understand what's going on inside of it. He emphasizes patient education throughout his noninvasive adjustments, cold-laser therapy sessions, and spinal-decompression therapy, explaining how he aims to align the body's internal workings to assuage ailments ranging from back pain and sore muscles to digestive trouble and incomprehensible muttering. He keeps the information flowing after treatments as well, arming patients with advice on how to boost their energy without caffeine or maintain a healthy weight.
Dr. Elizabeth Brieden wants potential patients to know that chiropractic medicine doesn’t just tend to back and neck pains. A licensed chiropractor for 23 years, as well as a certified therapeutic lifestyle coach and volunteer with the Foundation of Wellness Professionals, Dr. Brieden has used her skills to treat soft- and hard-tissue problems, fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches, and other ailments. From HealthWorks Chiropractic’s ultra-modern facility, she and her team perform such healing modalities as chiropractic adjustments, intersegmental traction, and cooling cryotherapy, which numbs the body to reduce muscle spasms in quadriceps that get too excited when they see a pair of running shoes. The clinic’s staff also includes a licensed massage therapist, who can augment the effects of Dr. Brieden's treatments with chiropractic-inspired massage.
