The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
Dr. Rick Buchalter aims to restore out-of-line spinal columns inside his practice, Comprehensive Chiropractic Center. He manually adjusts his patients’ backs, dispenses physical therapy exercises, and doles out nutrition advice. His treatments also alleviate headaches, allergies, and fatigue.
Wielding a spread of hair-thin needles, licensed acupuncture physician Marilyn Aracena utilizes traditional Chinese medicine techniques to improve her clients' health and relieve chronic pains. Her acupuncture treatments help unblock the body's natural energy flow, or qi, in order to relieve mental stress and physical aches caused by blockages. Nature Wellness also offers tuina massage, cupping treatments, and other forms of therapy for clients who prefer a more hands-on approach to relief or who still harbor grief over a balloon that they popped as a child.
To licensed acupuncturist Rebecca Bridges, surgery and prescription drugs should be a last resort. At Bridges-To-Health, she opts to heal patients with holistic techniques that foster the connection between bodies and minds. Her go-to treatment is acupuncture, the ancient Chinese treatment that stimulates the body's Qi, or life energy, by inserting thin needles into parts of the body. Other alternative-health services include cupping, herbal medicine, and tui na massage.
Dr. Michael J. Cohen oversees Miami Lakes Family Chiropractic as well as the spines of players for sports teams such as the Colorado Rockies and the Washington Nationals. Dr. Cohen—or Dr. Mickey, as he likes to be called—puts his years of experience to the test by fighting issues such as herniated discs or spinal disappearance. He leads his team as they perform manual adjustments and decompressions, or offer full-body vibrations and cervical traction.
Infinite Health & Wellness Group's Dr. Bruce Cherlow has been administering chiropractic services and holistic treatments in Parkland for more than two decades. At his respected practice, a staff of patient advocates, x-ray technicians, and massage therapists use non-invasive techniques to treat the whole body rather than just responding to symptoms as they pop up or installing bionic body parts after every illness. Dr. Cherlow adjusts the spine, prescribes corrective exercises, and offers nutritional counseling to address a wide range of issues, from whiplash and soreness to allergies, pinched nerves, and sciatica. Therapeutic Swedish massage or deep-tissue treatments can boost blood flow and remove toxins, while postural screenings help unveil previously hidden maladies.
