Captained by licensed chiropractor Dr. Larry Estebo, Premier Health Chiropractic's team of spine adjusters has been scrutinizing and soothing pained backs since 1983. After discussing patient health issues and treatment options during a brief consultation, doctors perform a chiropractic examination, testing bodily flexibility, posture, and how quickly knees can answer riddles. If necessary, doctors x-ray patients to more closely inspect them for signs of spinal misalignment or degeneration. Following the initial 20- to 30-minute diagnosis, doctors magically transform their digits into masseuse fingers, digging and rubbing into the deepest, tensest contours of client spines during a 30-minute session that unburdens backs of persistent stress knots and lower-back tattoos.
Applied Health Chiropractic's Doctor of Chiropractic Marion Constantinides knows a thing or two about the inner workings of the human body. She's not only a chiropractor with a long history in emergency and family medicine but also an applied kinesiologist working toward her diploma. This allows Dr. Constantinides to incorporate modalities such as the sacro-occipital technique, craniosacral therapy, and acupuncture-meridian therapies into her holistic, preventive approach to health care. To pinpoint the source of dysfunction within the body, such as allergies or a stapler you swallowed years back, she thoroughly tests specific muscles that are related to organs and glands.
Dr. Constantinides also emphasizes the importance of nutrition, and promotes a totally grain-free diet to curb inflammation. She works side by side with fellow Doctor of Chiropractic Rachel Silver, a nutritional consultant who is passionate about sharing her knowledge—both with patients and with students in biological-sciences classes at two local community colleges.
