Years ago, a friend advised Doctor of Chiropractic Brian Russell to visit a chiropractor after he injured his back during a workout. He was unfamiliar with chiropractic work, but trusted his friend's advice. Not only did the treatments work, but the philosophy of drug-free care also appealed to him. Russell decided to earn his own chiropractic degree at the National University of Health Sciences.
Today, Dr. Russell treats patients at Russell Chiropractic Care with the same techniques that brought him relief. Spinal decompression gently expands the vertebrae, allowing them to properly realign, and electrical muscle stimulation speeds the healing of injured muscles. Massages and acupuncture promote healthier bodies and minds. Patients can also find relief from foot pain with orthotics designed to slip into shoes.
The experienced massage therapists at Mobile Healing Hands travel to their clients’ homes, places of business, and favorite subway stations to relax tense bodies. They dispense the long, gliding strokes of a Swedish massage, trigger-point techniques for extra stubborn muscles, and heated lava stones during massage sessions.
When it comes to alleviating pain, Doctor of Chiropractic Shelly Posejpal and her staff understand that there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. That's why they take into account each patient's symptoms and health history before recommending a course of treatment. For chronic pain they may recommend spinal or soft tissue manipulation, while injuries may require techniques like electrical muscle stimulation. Optimal's team of massage therapists, meanwhile, can help encourage the body to heal itself by customizing treatments that draw on Swedish, sports, deep-tissue, and pre-natal therapy. Of course, a proper diet can play an optimal role in alleviating chronic symptoms, and so Dr. Posejpal and company also hold nutrition counseling sessions designed to help clients make healthier choices and resolve any anger they may be harboring towards breakfast meats.
