The clinical team at Chiropractic Associates of Michigan does much more than simply maintaining its patients' spinal alignments. Rather, practitioners use chiropractic and therapeutic techniques to promote overall health. Chiropractor Lanny Lipson, also an applied kinesiologist, studied with the man some consider to be the "father" of applied kinesiology, George Goodheart, DC. In practice, Dr. Lipson uses diagnostic tools such as dynamic range-of-motion testing to facilitate the repair of soft-tissue injuries and gauge someone's ability to do the Electric Slide. He also specializes in correcting nutritional imbalances and designing custom diet plans for weight-loss success. His extensive knowledge and experience earned him a ranking as one of the top 10 chiropractors in Warren by RateMDs.com and a 2012 Talk of the Town News Customer Satisfaction Award.
Dr. Lipson's team includes fellow chiropractors Linda-Golladay Merchberger and Christina Coxon as well as a reflexology expert, who has been practicing for more than two decades. To enhance their wellness plans, their patients can stop by The Healing Store for Standard Process supplements, books about holistic healing, and natural personal-care products.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
Since the body is its own best doctor, Doctor of Chiropractic Gerald W. Zurinsky Jr.—or Dr. Z—believes patients should understand what's going on inside of it. He emphasizes patient education throughout his noninvasive adjustments, cold-laser therapy sessions, and spinal-decompression therapy, explaining how he aims to align the body's internal workings to assuage ailments ranging from back pain and sore muscles to digestive trouble and incomprehensible muttering. He keeps the information flowing after treatments as well, arming patients with advice on how to boost their energy without caffeine or maintain a healthy weight.
One is better than two, but three is better than all of them. So at the Madison Heights Chiropractic Center, a trio of physicians triangulate their knowledge of the human body to identify ailments, ease injuries, and educate clients about healthy living. With a 40-year track record and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Allen Kash sits on the board of the Michigan Chiropractic Society and allies himself with the American Chiropractic Association. His colleague, Dr. Matthew Cohen has a bachelor's degree in kinesiology, a doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic, and over five years of experience. He treats patients with a medley of chiropractic techniques, physiotherapy procedures, rehabilitative exercises, and natural supplementation. Finally, nationally certified massage therapist Phil Schultz aids the spine-straightening process with massage while using an array of techniques, such as Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy, and hot stones. All of his massages can include a complimentary spinal screening, during which the good doctor assesses spinal alignment.
At Claddagh Chiropractic Wellness Center, board-certified Doctors of Chiropractic Bridget Devlin and Timothy Murray may prescribe a wide variety of spinal adjustment treatments, such as corrective exercises and massage therapy. The doctors customize each person's treatment path with what they call the "whole person approach," which aims to uncover and corrects the underlying cause for aches, pains, and illness. In addition to pain treatment, doctors also promote overall wellness with preventive care for all ages.
