With a strong desire to return to her roots, Doctor of Chiropractic Laurel Griffin turned down several jobs offers across the country and on Mars to move back to Iowa, where she was born and raised. Now working at Precision Chiropractic West, Dr. Griffin gently unearths the cause of back and neck pain and realigns spines with adjustments. She is also board certified in the Atlas Orthogonal Technique, a chiropractic specialty that treats the atlas, or the first bone in the spine, to help alleviate headaches, neck pain, and facial pain.
Certified in both chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, Dr. Brent DeRocher seeks to reduce dependence on surgery or medication through a holistic approach to treating the body's muscles and the nervous system that controls them. Acupuncture treatments begin by identifying troubled areas of the body, then stimulating key pressure points to release the flow of blocked energy. Poke-aphobics will be relieved to know that Dr. DeRocher most often uses needle-less electrical stimulation, and polkaphobics will be pleased to learn that accordions are not part of Chinese medical tradition. Meanwhile, chiropractic treatment soothes and helps realign disheveled spinal columns to reduce recurrent pain and return bodies young and old to their full range of motion. The chiropractic exam begins by taking a detailed case history to discover the origins of creaking backs and achy limbs (a $92 value), and x-rays turn their gaze upon the hidden problems other kinds of rays are too polite to notice (an $80 value). During your two relief treatments, the chiropractor will apply carefully directed force to the spinal area, correcting the results of accidents, sports injuries, or everyday slouching (an $80 value). The specialist may also recommend at-home exercises to teach wayward muscles and ligaments about good habits and the dangers of emulating cartoon bodybuilders.
Licensed massage therapist Marianne Crandall draws upon her experience in spas, massage clinics, and doctor's offices to exile muscular tension with four massage modalities. Marianne first consults with patrons on their backs' problem areas to better isolate and assuage their individual issues. Hands smooth over sore and stiff surface tissues in the therapeutic massage and soothe expectant mothers' strains by wrapping torsos in lullaby sheet music during the prenatal massage. Deep-tissue or myofascial-release sessions duel with clients' deep-seated aches, zeroing in on afflicted zones with more intense pressure to increase range of motion and relieve chronic pain. After their treatment, physiques can boast reduced pain, diminished stress, and the ability to limbo under office doors.
