Lucia Chiropractic Clinic’s Doctor of Chiropractic George W. Lucia Jr., who speaks English and Spanish, aligns adults’ and kids’ spines with chiropractic adjustments and fortifies bodies with nutritional supplements. He uses techniques such as intersegmental traction to alleviate bulging discs and therapies such as moist heat, ultrasound, and electrical muscle stimulation to treat soft-tissue injuries. He even offers digital scans of feet to determine if there are any imbalances in the feet causing spine problems and ruining competitive race-walking potential.
As an avid sports fan, participant in sports such as hockey and football, and a youth-sports coach, Dr. Lucia recognizes the effects that intense physical activity can have on the body. He treats a variety of athletes at his clinic and is the official chiropractic physician for the Carolina Renegades, as well as the chiropractor for The Camel City Thrashers roller-derby team, a sport whose athletes are as injury-prone as a crash-test dummy’s stunt double.

CrossFit Downtown Winston leads exercisers through a general strength and conditioning program based on an inclusive set of movements and exercises with the level of difficulty determined by the participant's fitness level. During the six-week boot camp, trained coaches boasting a broad spectrum of specialties enthusiastically guide students through Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, and holes in Rocky plotlines. Each intense 45-minute session pairs traditional CrossFit accouterments such as kettle bells and medicine balls with sport drills and endurance training, shaking up routines while activating new muscle groups. Personal attention and individual ability-assessments keep exercisers on course at an appropriate pace, slimming waistlines and minimizing the need to bribe electronic scales with magnets. Boot camps convene on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. and 10 a.m. on Saturdays, as the gym opens its doors for after-work workouts or a weekending sweat sessions.
