After 16 years as a registered nurse, Sharon Dollase decided to make a change. She enjoyed helping patients but found herself restricted by traditional treatments, which too often treated the symptoms rather than their underlying causes. She yearned to help her patients to find natural, lasting solutions to common health problems and so enrolled in a nearby chiropractic college, where she completed her doctor of chiropractic degree and necessary licensing exams in 1997.
As the medical director of Conejo Valley Chiropractic & Wellness, Dr. Dollase works closely with patients to develop personalized treatments that blend adjustments, massages, and other restorative therapies, such as chiropractic adjustments—which benefit the muscular system, nervous system, and spine.
Dr. Michael McMurry has his hands full. When he's not realigning askew spines as a chiropractor at Optimal Health and Wellness Center, he's putting teams of boot-campers or personal trainees through their paces as part of his insanely intricate body transformation system. With the help of nutritionist and certified group fitness instructor, Cori Newman, the two tag-team lethargy and help their clients beat back the usual obstacles that get between people and their exercise routine.
Each client leaps into the fitness fray with a personalized health assessment, cardiovascular screening exam, and measurements to pinpoint the most effective use of the ensuing six- or twelve-week program. Before the first personal training or bootcamp session starts, clients begin boosting healthy metabolism and cutting out extra calories with simple meal plans, recipes, and a detox diet that takes the guesswork out of going to the grocery store and helps avoid the temptations of travelling frosting salesmen.
Over the ensuing weeks, exercisers cycle rapidly through a dynamic interval training program designed by physicians that replaces reams of weight with lean muscle. A constantly changing roster of exercises, including cardio, plyometrics, and speed drills, keeps muscles on their toes to burn more fat than the first bacon grease-powered locomotive.
Dr. Jon Scott and Dr. Nick Brock have been alleviating chronic pain and realigning crooked spines for more than a decade. The secret to their chiropractic success? Well, for starters, Dr. Scott is certified to practice a technique known as Chiropractic Biomechanics of Posture, or CBP for short. This specialty technique allows him to pinpoint patients' issues more accurately than the traditional method, wherein patients silently act out their problems as charades. At Advanced Chiropractic Rehabilitation, Dr. Scott uses CBP to perform services such as spinal adjustments and rehabilitative exercises. Seeing as how chiropractic is an essentially holistic discipline, Dr. Scott also offers nutritional counseling to bolster his patients' overall health.
Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Kim complements his specialization in the upper-cervical methodology of chiropractic with acupuncture treatments, using a mixture of Eastern and Western techniques to treat chronic back pain and restore the body through a holistic approach. The staff of massage therapists also combines modalities to treat clients based on their individual needs, blending styles from myofascial release to hot-stone massage.
Dr. Michael Richey didn’t always have that prefix in front of his name. A personal injury sustained while practicing martial arts caused Dr. Richey immense pain. His doctor at the time suggested surgery, which, according to Dr. Richey, only slightly alleviated the pain that radiated from his bulging disc. He turned to a chiropractor as a last-ditch effort to avoid a second surgery, and—within a week—his aches had subsided. So impressed by his treatment, Dr. Richey decided to become a chiropractor himself.
Today, Dr. Richey is able to practice martial arts on the side, though his career is now chiropractic medicine. At Living Well Family Chiropractic, he primarily targets and treats the joint changes that cause patients pain. Once pinpointed, he can work to readjust the spine into its original, erect position, supplementing treatments with massage, dietary counseling, physical therapy, and lifestyle-modification programs.
