Visits to Winter Park Chiropractic always start with a conversation. Doctor of Chiropractic Alex Hollander takes his time getting to know patients, not only combing through their medical history and junior-high yearbooks, but learning what they expect from treatments. This often overlooked step helps him customize his noninvasive adjustments—almost as much as the thorough exams and x-rays he uses to pinpoint sources of pain.
Dr. Damon Thornton has called central Florida home for more than 43 years. After graduating with honors from Parker College of Chiropractic, he opened this clinic with the hopes of assuaging pain and boosting health in his own backyard. His office specializes in chiropractic care, which differentiates itself from other branches of medicine by seeking to treat the whole body rather than simply squashing symptoms as they arise. A variety of services, including physical therapy and spinal decompression, aims to realign the body?s operating system to alleviate chronic pain and uninstall unwanted Sudoku apps. Dr. Thornton also hopes to fend off health issues before they start through nutritional counseling. In addition to overseeing a lineup of facial and body rejuvenation services, he supervises a team of licensed massage therapists, who treat soft muscle tissues to the revitalizing touch of massage and bodywork.
Dr. Steven Levine is something of a local healthcare celebrity. For nearly 10 years, he hosted a radio show called "Back to Health," covering chiropractic topics and educating Orlando listeners on how to overcome common aches and pains. But it's not his notoriety that stands out most—Nor even his more than 30 years of experience in the chiropractic field. Mostly, Dr. Levine prides himself as a diagnostician talented in locating his patents' sources of pain.
For his entire career, Dr. Levine has taken the greater missions of the chiropractic practice to heart, attending 100-hour post-graduate programs that deal with diagnosing and monitoring various types of spinal issues. He's equally passionate about treating those issues without the use of drugs. Once he's deduced the source of his patient's pain during examinations, he corrects them with gentle spinal adjustments that require no drugs, needles, or yelling.
The husband-wife duo behind Beyond Chiropractic is devoted to treating the three primary bringers of disease?traumas, toxins, and negative thoughts. They do this through lifestyle advice, spinal adjustments, and nutritional counseling, and by treating each patient as a whole person, instead of just a collection of symptoms and state quarters. A mother herself, Doctor of Chiropractic Danielle Silberstein-Clarke takes a special interest in prenatal and pediatric care, whereas Doctor of Chiropractic Roy Clarke holds additional training in scoliosis correction techniques.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Farmer needed a chiropractor before he became one. Suffering from scoliosis as a child, he went to his family chiropractor, whose hands-on techniques kept him out of the operatory and in sports. Wanting to take costly, risky surgery out of the equation for others, Dr. Farmer attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, the world's oldest chiropractic school, where he eventually became a teacher.
Now ensconced at Orlando Chiropractic and Physical Rehab, LLC, Dr. Farmer treats his patients with spinal rehabilitation therapy (SRT). This therapy seeks to reverse the five components of spinal injury, such as pain and loss of motion, with a combination of traditional chiropractic adjustments, massage, and physical rehab. He and the team demonstrate their devotion to patients by taking time to get to know them during consultations and listening to questions and concerns while helping devise a treatment plan. If, through careful examination, Dr. Farmer believes he can't help a patient, he and the staff work to locate someone who can, either through extensive research or by making smoke signals in doctor script.
