Passionate about his profession, chiropractor Ryan Smith doesn't just perform chiropractic treatments; he loves educating his patients about them too. He begins each appointment with a conversation, during which he gets to know about the patient's problem while explaining how his drug-free techniques can help. Then, he examines the spine with x-rays and his bare hands, looking for pinched nerves, herniated discs, and ingrown tails that can cause pain. Once he's pinpointed the source of pain, he gently nudges the vertebrae into healthier positions.
The chiropractors at Fountain of Life Family Chiropractic address chronic pain with adjustments and strive to correct problems via posture correction while also helping patients make changes to nutrition and lifestyle. They also relieve muscular and skeletal maladies with spinal decompression as well as massage performed by certified massage therapists. These treatments have been known to cure afflictions other than back pain, and include maladies such as allergies, headaches, and sciatica.
Doctor of Chiropractic Darrel Drumright was first introduced to chiropractic philosophy and Chinese medicine during his time as an airborne paratrooper in the US Army. He had just finished his pre-med education before enlisting, but these ideas intrigued him so much that he changed courses. Rather than continue his medical career, he decided to pursue advanced training in chiropractic, acupuncture, qi gong, and nutrition.
Today, Dr. Drumright shares his knowledge at Harmony Health & Wellness. Through drug-free, noninvasive treatments, he works to help the body's natural ability to heal itself and sneeze perfect chromatic scales. A track record of more than 20 years of experience demonstrates Dr. Drumright’s dedication to restoring the balance between mind, body, and spirit.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Anderson, treating patients is a family business. He first learned about chiropractic care from his father, a Doctor of Chiropractic himself, and today brings a personal approach to treating back, spine, and body pain. From manual and activator adjustments to massage and muscle stimulation, he combines different chiropractic techniques in order to best get at the root of health problems instead of simply alleviating their symptoms. As the official chiropractor for the Park University athletic department, Dr. Anderson also specializes in working with athletes dealing with injuries and water coolers suffering from strained spouts.
Whatever the bodily need, patients can relax while receiving care in Active Chiropractic’s recently remodeled private treatment rooms. Neutral tones promote peace of mind, and wall decals of bamboo stalks provide an elegant touch while deterring curious pandas.
He can’t say that he invented the laser light, but Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Carella does take credit for the development of laser spine care. During each laser-therapy treatment, he stimulates acupuncture points across the body with a laser light and manipulates the spinal nerve root with an LED light. The therapeutic glow from these devices helps soothe chronic pains, such as sciatica, spinal stenosis, nerve-root irritation, backaches, neck aches, and post-handshake shudders. Though not all of Dr. Carella’s treatment techniques—which include acupuncture, chiropractic care, and hypnosis—are his own inventions, he performs each with the same level of care that has earned him the nickname “The Gentle Chiropractor.”
Dr. Carella has mastered his technique throughout more than 40 years in business, a lengthy and accomplished career that even Dr. Carella himself didn't predict. He was diagnosed with a structural lumbar dysfunction, which led him to research its treatment methods. That's when he discovered the field of chiropractic care. He wrote a textbook on hypnosis in 1975 and contributed to a book that offered treatment methods for those suffering from back pain. He also belongs to several medically based associations and academies, and his skills have brought him such high-profile clients as football Hall of Famer Bobby Bell, Grammy Award–winner Roberta Flack, and professional wrestler Harley Race.
Natural Bodyworks LLC recharges patients with a host of holistic treatments designed to impart happiness and bodily well-being. Led by Dr. Shawnda Gross and licensed massage therapist Brandi Cates, each massage begins with a relaxing 10 minutes of steam heat to relax clients into their session and leave the body fork-tender. A 30-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage then releases aches and tenderizes tightened muscles in each patient’s most besieged bodily area, whether it be the shoulders, lower back, feet, or imaginary third arm—soothing away stress, correcting imbalances, and releasing endorphins from their prisons in the body’s knotty tuna nets.
