Led by Doctors of Chiropractic Ryan Kissling, Jeffrey Hanks, and Keith Quisberg, Align Chiropractic helps patients battle everyday ailments and conditions, from ADHD to fibromyalgia. Using advanced physiotherapy equipment, Drs. Kissling and Quisberg help to keep the spine aligned, release long-held tensions, and help to body to better heal itself. In addition, a digital x-ray system allows the doctors to view potential problem areas from any of the center’s treatment rooms, and they can then email the results and pictures to patients so that they can sprinkle them into PowerPoint presentations during important business meetings.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Maria A. Giacalone, chiropractic care is a family affair. She comes from a line of chiropractic physicians that spans more than 40 years, as well as practices in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, where she herself worked as a licensed chiropractor before relocating to Vegas in the early ’90s. Today, Dr. Giacalone draws upon more than 20 years of experience in the field, and has stayed current on industry techniques by embarking on a full year of training in rehabilitation and sports injuries in addition to taking classes on topics such as nutrition.
Services address problems such as chronic back and neck pain, whiplash, or arthritis, but also help clients maintain total well-being through diet, exercise, and health-related workshops led by guest speakers. Treatments may use both nonforceful techniques and traditional adjustments, as well as heat and ice therapy, helpful for easing chronic discomfort or testing whether old Hypercolor T-shirts still work.
Chiropractor David Williams founded Back Care Chiropractic more than 17 years ago. Recently, though, he and his staff have expanded their repertoire to include a variety of holistic health treatments, and the company was reborn as Whole Body Health. In addition to chiropractic care and physiotherapy, Dr. Williams performs personalized nutritional counseling and recommends herbal supplements for detoxification or weight loss. In addition, he teaches complimentary weekly classes about physical and emotional health to reduce stress.
It’s also possible to take advantage of the center's guided meditation and relaxation techniques. Their Self Mastery Technology focuses the mind with synchronized pulses of optical energy and sound, like doing yoga to the beat of your neighbor's holiday music-and-lights display.
Unless informed that it was the name of history’s coolest dinosaur, most 6-year-olds would have trouble even pronouncing the word “chiropractor”—but after a 6-year-old Devin Luzod received successful chiropractic care for severe allergies, he told anyone who would listen that he wanted to be a chiropractor when he grew up. By 2000 he had received his certifications from NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association), and his Las Vegas practice was booming.
NUCCA, a branch of chiropractic care, focuses on centering the weight of the head over the neck rather than on forceful “cracking” of the spine. Using gentle shifts and adjustments, Dr. Luzod sends healing energy throughout the body to ameliorate ailments such as headaches, limited mobility, and pain induced by repetitive motion or working all day in the same beanbag chair.
Since 1997, Doctors of Chiropractic Sam Colarusso and Kevin Nozawa have brought backs back from the brink of debilitating soreness with an array of chiropractic treatments at The Las Vegas Chiropractic Group. During that time, they have kept up to date with advancements in chiropractic technology. They relax muscles with ultrasound therapy, which diffuses heat into muscles at a greater depth than hot packs of split-pea soup, and squeeze out tension with electrical muscle stimulation. With a mechanical traction apparatus, the doctors gently stretch the spine to draw oxygen-rich blood into the disks. In addition to technological treatments, the doctors straighten disarranged vertebrae with hand-on adjustments, massages, and corrective exercises.
