Dr. Travis Ring could fill a library with his assorted stacks of to-do lists. The head of Eastern Oklahoma Chiropractic creates a "schedule of care" for each of his patients, personalizing the tasks so that they address both painful symptoms and their underlying causes. He has several tools at his disposal, the most important of which are his hands—they administer careful adjustments that aim to realign ailing vertebrae. He has also mastered ART, or Active Release Technique, a method that relies on manual therapy and movements by the client to offset the effects of old injuries.
Among other approaches to chiropractic wellness, Dr. Ring utilizes intersegmental traction beds, needleless acupuncture, and massages from his office’s resident licensed massage therapist, Crystal. These varied methods can combat chronic aches resulting from a wide range of conditions, including carpal tunnel and shin splints, in addition to bothersome back and neck spasms. Dr. Ring gears his practice towards families and especially enjoys working with children, as their backs typically have fewer hard-to-remove barnacles than those of adults.

Schluter Chiropractic helps patients find their healthy place with the musculoskeletal adjustments for which chiropractic is known. After a consultation to determine a patient's medical history and areas of discomfort, doctors conduct an initial examination and decide upon a treatment plan. Then, over the course of several sessions, they perform external adjustments to the bones that are meant to relieve pain and improve range of motion.
Before the treatment even begins, though, they put patients at ease with their family-friendly atmosphere. The Schluter family fills almost every role within the office, from the chiropractors to the chiropractic assistants to the office manager.
No one knows the pain of never enjoying a panoramic view like someone with a spinal misalignment. The doctors at Brooks Spinal Care save clients from immobility and pain with adjustments and massages that allow them to enjoy the office's panoramic view of Tulsa from 34 stories up. Dr. Robert Brooks and Dr. Scott Hanson work in tandem to provide new clients with complimentary consultations and a full spinal x-ray to help identify misalignments and why clients can't sleep comfortably in their refrigerators. Their reception staff adds luxury to appointments by refreshing waiting clients with all-natural juices and teas.
A staff of male and female massage therapists, headed by Alicia Fleming, distinguishes between spinal problems and areas of tension to eradicate muscle pain with heated stones and traditional touch. The massage room could be more aptly called a suite; Fleming says it's the size of a master bedroom with windows overlooking the city, ambient lighting, and soft music.
