Unlike many others in her field, Doctor of Chiropractic Irene Wallace believes that spinal adjustments and mainstream medicine can work together. At Comprehensive Chiropractic she draws from her 14 years of experience to relieve her patients' pain. However, though her own noninvasive treatments require no medication, she refers patients to medical doctors when she feels they can benefit from them.
Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills. In addition to MedSpa services including laser hair removal and VelaShape body smoothing and contouring, Health First Wellness Center also offers yoga, Zumba, and Pilates classes.
The team of doctors at Lifetime Health and Wellness Clinic helps clients maintain and heal their bodies with a variety of nonsurgical procedures, slimming Lipo-Light treatments to chiropractic adjustments. During Lipo-Light treatments, lipolysis breaks down stored fat cells, releasing fat into the blood stream. Clients later assist in flushing fat from the body with exercise, which can result in inch loss.
In addition to body slimming services, health experts perform traditional chiropractic adjustments to ease chronic pain. Another option is ultrasound therapy, which eases joint and muscle pain with high-energy sound waves, as well as natural pain-relieving injections. If neither of those treatments are right for the job, electrical impulses can be sent into certain parts of the body to block pain signals.
The clinic also tends to overall wellness with blood tests, internal medicine care, and weight-loss programs that teach clients how to eat healthy and extract all the carbs from bread.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight, growing to more than 250 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.
