"Something hurts." The doctors at Absolute Medical Clinic—which has eight locations in Jacksonville and its surrounding areas—are used to hearing that from their patients. Fortunately, their clinics' thorough diagnostics systems can swiftly pinpoint the issue in most cases. After x-rays, ultrasounds, or other tests, they work with men, women, and kids to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Like a truck driver who's way ahead of schedule, their treatment plans might take a lot of different routes. In addition to chiropractic treatments, the doctors on staff have experience in rehabilitation, physical therapy, and various forms of medical care. They work alongside massage therapists, and the team also gives guidance on nutrition and overall health. Med spa treatments including laser hair removal and body contouring mean that the outside of the body gets almost as much attention as the inside.
As an individual who has experienced both the unbearable pain of sudden bodily injury and the subsequent chiropractic care that eased it, Dr. Christopher Burnham is no mere believer. After four major injuries, he's turned to chiropractors, proving that adjustments and other care—instead of surgery—could eliminate or help manage the pain just as well, if not better. Among the services he offers to satisfied patients is impulse adjusting, laser treatments and other treatments after thoroughly consulting with each patient and performing examinations.
A Parker College of Chiropractic graduate, Doctor of Chiropractic Alan Smith was unsure where to begin his chiropractic practice, so he let fate decide for him by throwing a dart at a map. He settled in Fort Collins, Colorado in 2001, opening a practice based on the five axioms of heath: chiropractic, exercise, positive mental attitude, nutrition, and sleep. After a decade, Dr. Alan relocated to Florida, where he continues his mission to restore bodies to their optimal states of wellness.
Dr. Alan thoroughly explains chiropractic science to all who enter his practice and discusses expectations and results before each patient undergoes any treatment. This complimentary consultation helps Dr. Alan and his patients work together to develop a customized-treatment plan based on the patients’ individual needs.
Rehabilitation is the ultimate goal at Physical Healthcare of Jacksonville. Led by Dr. Mark Pierce, the center's staff provides an alternative to the prescription medications and invasive surgeries of traditional medical care. Instead, patients can receive treatments that address the underlying conditions that cause painful symptoms, helping them not only overcome chronic pains, but also become more resistant to injuries over time. The healthcare professionals accomplish this by providing atlas-orthogonal chiropractic care—realigning vertebrae and improving communication along the spine—and by offering everything from massage therapy to nutritional and lifestyle counseling. They also cater to patients' cosmetic needs, helping slim silhouettes with LED body-contouring technology.
In an industry beset by claims of miracle cures driven by unproven technologies, the husband-and-wife team of Drs. Hugo and Nicole Orozco return chiropractic care to its time-tested roots. Eschewing fads such as electrical stimulation, cold-laser treatments, and just yelling at muscles until they stop hurting, the pair delivers physical adjustments inspired by their experience with biomechanics and personal training. With gentle pressure, the doctors shift slipped discs back into place to help infants, adults, and seniors overcome aches and other chronic maladies. In addition, they optimize at-home wellness regimens with supervised nutritional support and whole-food supplements procured through health-care professionals.
Dr. Randall Haas, a member of the American Chiropractic Association, has been healing whole bodies with spinal adjustments and physiotherapy since 1978. In addition to observing traditional methods of alignment correction, he also practices Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA), a non-surgical therapy that treats ailments while the patient is in a twilight sleep. Dr. Haas also dispenses advice on nutrition and exercise, advising clients to bench press more fruit as they take a preventive approach to their health.
