As the name implies, the trio of doctors at Brixton Chiropractic and Acupuncture deals out noninvasive chiropractic and acupuncture treatments geared toward vanquishing pain without the use of drugs. They extol the body’s ability to heal itself and attempt to stimulate that property with a combination of spinal adjustments that relieve pinched nerves and sterile needles to reroute the body’s energy. In addition to plying their healing services in the office, they also arm clients with self-care information, such as exercises and proper nutrition.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Pargeter, a graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College, relies on gentle adjustment techniques to realign misplaced vertebrae. One such technique, the prone specific technique, does so without twisting the patient's torso or back. These patient-minded movements pair with x-rays and therapeutic services such as needle or needleless acupuncture to foster overall wellness.
Carol S. Hickman started practicing massage therapy in 1993, but it wasn’t until 1995 that she really saw the full effect her skills could have on others. After the Oklahoma City bombing, she used her knack for healing to bring the victims physical and mental peace. The satisfaction of helping others—and to see their faces fade from tortured to pain-free—is what has kept Hickman in this career path for nearly 20 years.
Her treatment repertoire includes hot-stone and therapeutic massages meant to soothe muscles and stiff necks, and zen body therapy, which uses high-intensity energy treatments similar to rolfing to straighten the spine, similar to those used to roll out an old, dry piece of play-doh. Hickman also extends her services to animals with arthritis and to infants, focusing on instilling good posture when children’s bones are the most pliable.
Doctor of Chiropractic Marcus Favorite adheres to the traditional chiropractic philosophy: to help the body heal itself. At Favorite Chiropractic, he aims to accomplish this goal by freeing the brain-body communication that can become disrupted by out-of-position vertebrae or really tight shirt collars. Disks can occasionally slip, limiting the spinal cord’s ability to transmit signals to the muscles and organs and causing illness. During adjustments, the doctor applies careful pressure to strategically shift these disks back into place, thereby triggering the body’s natural healing processes. Dr. Favorite’s sure hands and gentle disposition can help alleviate a range of ailments for patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly.

Dr. Johnson specializes in treating spinal injuries due to accidents, stress, or daily activities, and works with the body's natural healing capabilities to provide the most effective treatments. He is also a proponent of exercise rehabilitation and proper nutrition as healing methods that work hand in hand with chiropractic treatments.
