Over the course of a 15-year career, chiropractor Trek R. Smith has learned a lot about the body. He guides the staff at Back to Health Chiropractic with this knowledge, working to treat headaches, chronic pain, and other conditions, as well as helping his patients bounce back after accident or injury. Using advanced techniques such as spinal decompression, electrical muscle stimulation, and sweet-talking your vertebrae, the clinic’s team moves patients toward a state of improved health and reduced pain. Additionally, Smith and his staff can suggest herbal and nutritional supplements to help boost health and performance.
Doctor of Chiropractic Amber Wellman, who specializes in sports rehabilitation, pediatric care, cold-laser therapy, and nutritional counseling, treats patients with chiropractic care combined with lifestyle advice. After any type of treatment, including spinal adjustments and massage therapy, Dr. Wellman suggests a wellness program for patients to use on their own. This can include instructions for ice and heath applications, corrective exercises, and stretches, helping treat both the symptoms that are currently active and the dormant ones that, like a child television star, may act out in the future.
At Go Yoga, owners JP and Cassie McClellan pay homage to the practice that brought them together with a slate of classes inspired by Baptiste Power-Vinyasa yoga. Both veteran yogis train under the method's creator, Baron Baptiste, on a regular basis, and import his techniques to their own studio, which surrounds visitors in tropical plants and soothing earth tones. Baptiste yoga weaves several different traditions into a series of flowing postures performed in a space that’s warmed to 90 degrees, mimicking the average temperature found on the dark side of the sun. At Yoga for Beginners and Restorative Flow classes, instructors tweak gentle routines with a focus on linking breath to movement. Special events treat attendees to yoga on the beach, and regularly offered sessions such as massages and outdoor EcoVentures offer relaxation or tours of Amelia Island by foot, bike, kayak, or horseback.
Focusing on specific body parts, Beaches Rehabilitation Center incorporates a collaborative approach of physical therapy and massage therapy to restore balance to the body, alleviate pain, and enable patients to live normal lives. Guided by an individualized approach to therapy and an emphasis on functional mobility, patients of all ages are tended by the same therapist throughout their treatment plans. The staff's extensive training in the treatment of orthopedic conditions and post-operative care aims to quickly restore clients to full functionality, using elements of manual therapy and exercise to address muscular limitations and improving joint motion. Founder and president Anya Johnson, a speech and language pathologist, also helps patients with conditions from stuttering to facial paralysis and the effects of neurological disorders.
