Since 1998, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael P. Butler has run his practice with a strong focus on getting to know his patients' situations and problems before beginning treatment. Rather than rushing into one of the center's various services, each appointment starts off with an assessment designed to help prescribe customized courses of action and determine if patients have a vestigial tail. Dr. Butler and his team of spinal superheroes then use spinal adjustments, applied kinesiology, cold-laser therapy, and other treatments to remedy ailments ranging from chronic back pain to headaches, stress, and general fatigue.
Leading their clients on the path to better health is the staff's goal at Keona Wellness?even if it's simply by creating an enjoyable day with a soothing massage or infrared-sauna session. Weight-loss programs and holistic-health coaching focus more on longer-term wellness goals.
There are countless reasons why we get sick, ranging from excess stress to swimming with no shoes on. But in the spine-centric mind of Doctor of Chiropractic Robert Lokey, all illness stems from nervous-system dysfunction. He reached this conclusion after observing a broad range of ailments during his six years in the military—a stint that placed him in Vietnam as part of the Airborne Rangers and later in medical technology at Maxwell Air Force Base Hospital. His passion for helping others heal grew into Lokey Chiropractic Clinic, where he now draws from an extensive knowledge of anatomy as he manipulates the spinal column to help relieve chronic headaches and bodily pain.
From back or neck pain to general feelings of malaise, both physical and emotional woes go under examination at Foundation Chiropractic, where Dr. Ryan Adams takes a whole-person approach to seek underlying causes of discomfort. His toolbox is filled with a variety of treatments that can relieve pain, restore balance, and boost overall well-being, rather than simply mitigating symptoms. With the help of his experienced staff, he coddles the spinal column with adjustments, eases muscle and joint hurts with kinesio tape, and disposes of scar tissue with myofascial manipulation before it has a chance to clog internal lint traps.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight. Named No. 1 New Franchise by Entrepreneur in 2011 and profiled in Inc., HealthSource has grown to more than 400 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude. At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
