The chiropractic practice’s licensed staff helps heal spinal problems and promotes full-body wellness through exams, adjustments, and massage therapy. Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan Berns—second-generation chiropractor and former University of Illinois football player—leads the team at Integrative Physical Medicine as they use computerized diagnostic technology to pinpoint and treat pain. This equipment includes Digital Motion X-rays for movement-based imaging and a Vax-D system, which is a specialized procedure that offers a nonsurgical way to treat lower-back pain and herniated discs. Using multiple modalities to alleviate aches, an onsite licensed massage therapist consults with clients who can help identify exact locations of discomfort by shouting out their coordinates.
Conforti Natural Wellness Centers' experienced chiropractors have garnered praise from Panache Vue magazine for their knack at easing bodily aches with safe chiropractic care that targets each guest's specific problem areas. Five days a week, Conforti Natural Wellness Centers' licensed massage therapists detangle knotted muscles and relieve neck, back, and head pains associated with auto accidents, sport injuries, and amateur contortionist tournaments. Each of the company's locations complements chiropractic treatments with wellness services, including acupuncture, med-spa treatments, and nutritional counseling.
Dr. Joseph Aprile returned to his Tampa hometown after obtaining his chiropractic license, which he now uses to promote whole-body wellness with advanced chiropractic care. Whether dealing with twinges of pain caused by sports injuries, car accidents, or crushing tax refunds, Dr. Aprile and his associate, Dr. Simon Groseclose, espouse a natural healing philosophy that ditches drugs and surgery for corrective spinal adjustments, spinal decompressions, and digital x-rays. The doctors further encourage well-being with laser-therapy sessions, which aim to stimulate the body’s natural healing process by repairing injured tissues with infrared wavelengths. Dr. Aprile is also a licensed massage therapist, and he puts his hands to work gently kneading tight muscles and joints with custom massages.
In addition to a doctorate in Chiropractic studies and a master's degree in sports science and rehabilitation, Dr. Travis Mohr holds a degree in human biology that reflects his keen insight into the inner working of joints, muscles, and nerves. Chiropractic adjustments and massages treat issues ranging from headaches and back pain to lingering sports injuries or fibromyalgia. Athletes and veteran crash-test dummies benefit from MiyoDac manual therapy treatments, which help break down scar tissue and maintain strength and flexibility around injured areas. Dr. Mohr also helps his patients grow healthier at home with nutritional counseling and corrective exercise techniques.
Like many chiropractors, Doctor of Chiropractic Heidi Pickering offers nutrition and weight-loss services in addition to her pain-relieving spinal adjustments and massage therapy. But unlike other chiropractors, Heidi really practices what she preaches—she is a fitness model who has taken first place in a Muscle Madness competition where she showed off her incredibly toned physique.
At Paradise Palms Chiropractic & Spa, she helps clients achieve their own weight-loss goals with services such as nonsurgical body contouring, Power Vibe vibration muscle toning, and body wraps.
At Back to Nature Health and Wellness Center, leading practitioner Argo Duenas's deep belief in the benefits of holistic healing took her off the path of traditional medical nursing two decades ago and redirected her journey toward certification in colonic hygiene, reflexology, and energy adjustment. Inside her clean, homey, brick-fronted clinic, Duenas relies on drug-free methods such as reiki, colon hydrotherapy, and ear candling to purge the body of toxins and attempt to alleviate ailments ranging from high blood pressure to chronic fatigue. Argo also teaches body awareness, preventative wellness, and breakdance choreography through lectures and seminars.
Doctor of Chiropractic Sev Kessler first experienced the healing power of chiropractic care in his early 20s. As an avid skier, he herniated three disks and was told he would need an operation to fuse his spine. Before taking such drastic measures, he visited a chiropractor—a decision that ultimately changed his life. Today, Dr. Kessler operates his own practice, BrightStar Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab, where the staff uses adjustment techniques, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation to treat a long list of ailments, including back and joint pain, injuries, and arthritis.
