A car accident left him severely injured, which is why he has no trouble relating to patients at Lakewood Family Medicine. In need of musculoskeletal rehabilitation and a quick recovery, his clients can choose from methods such as medical massage, laser therapy, and physical therapy. Dr. Young also provides nutritional guidance, citing the unsavory hospital food he ate as he recovered from his injury as the reason for this branch of his practice.
Dr. Alex Zylstra helms a chiropractic team that works to better backs and, in turn, the whole body with services that ensure bodies possess the essentials of living a healthy life, including maximized nerve and oxygen supply. During Millennium's thorough chiropractic exam, the deft hands of one of the specialists work to detect and correct misaligned vertebrae by thoroughly feeling for spinal position, curvature, muscle tone, and secret robot control panels. They’ll then perform various tests, such as reading spinal heat to understand the body's circulation and evaluating electrical impulses. Spinal x-rays also showcase the position of spinal bones and allow the doctor to plan a safe adjustment based on the condition of the spine. Soothing strokes and firm kneads work tension out of the body, turning knots of tissue into cushiony hammocks for gently cradling muscles that are more relaxed than a zen master on a Caribbean cruise.
