As a young teenager, Dr. Kim Gibas suffered from recurring sports injuries that never seemed to heal. She eventually found relief in the form of chiropractic care, an experience that inspired her to study and become a doctor of chiropractic medicine in her own right. Today, she's paying it forward by helping others find relief for their chronic aches and pains without resorting to prescribed medications or invasive surgical procedures.
Instead, Dr. Gibas relies on the restorative benefits of chiropractic adjustments, which reenergize the body?s natural healing processes by realigning wayward vertebrae along the spine. Before she even begins treating patients though, she performs a thorough examination, assessing posture, testing reflexes, checking range of motion, diagramming sentences, and even taking x-rays if necessary. Dr. Gibas then uses this information to design a personalized treatment regimen, working with a licensed massage therapist and holistic health practitioner to ensure her patients receive the most complete car possible.
When examining patients, Doctor of Chiropractic Kyle Tran literally starts from the ground up. He scans the soles of the feet to evaluate how his patients carry their weight. This method informs his search for subluxations and helps him customize treatments specifically for the individual. Once treatment plans are underway, Dr. Tran unleashes noninvasive adjustments of the spine and extremities, unburdening nerves of the pinches and internal crosswalk signs that inhibit the healing process.
Headed by Dr. Stein, Bodies in Balance brings a multi-disciplinary approach to pain treatment and overall health. Laboratory testing reveals potential allergies or missing nutrients, while orthotics and chiropractic adjustments counter and correct imbalances in the spine. Doctors also energize muscles with low-level lasers or electronic stimulation, or employ ultrasonic waves to stimulate fluid movement in the tissue. Dr. Stein and his team use these services to treat the pain that results from repetitive use, workplace accidents, or tickle fights with tractors.
An auto accident at 16 led Dr. Keith C. Richard to walk a long road to recovery. But with the help of a chiropractor, the unfortunate event turned into a life-changing experience when Dr. Richard realized he wanted to become a chiropractor himself. Now boasting more than 15 years of experience, Dr. Richard helps others reduce pain and aching caused by auto accidents, sport injuries, and daily wear and tear.
With a clientele that ranges from children to senior citizens, Dr. Richard understands the importance of customizing each visit. To do so, he uses a variety of traditional chiropractic treatments, such as adjustment and massage, as well as more advanced services including ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation, which activates the nerves to help release stress, reduce muscle spasms, and send Morse code valentines from the brain to the feet.
Dr. Alex Ayzenshteyn and Dr. Josh Stevens, both graduates of Palmer College of Chiropractic, team up to adjust spines and relieve pain at S&A Chiropractic. After evaluating each patient's medical issues, they perform adjustments and physical therapy to treat problems ranging from back pain to carpal tunnel. Certified massage therapists are also on staff to help smooth away clients' aches and pains.
Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
