Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight. Named No. 1 New Franchise by Entrepreneur in 2011 and profiled in Inc., HealthSource has grown to more than 400 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. Licensed, board-certified acupuncturist Shannan Walker performs sessions that help relieve pain and stress. A progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
Experiences gained during a decade of work as a chiropractor guide the steady hands of Dr. A. S. Jaber, who works to ease patient discomfort and promote wellness in Ridgeland Health's twin offices.

Brothers Phung Van and Vuong Van have a lot in common: both played sports, sustained injuries, and ultimately embraced chiropractic care as a way to heal. Today, the two doctors share their knowledge with patients in their practice, using modern and traditional techniques to relieve pain and ward off future injury. Adjustments and orthotics realign the body, while kinesio taping and rehabilitative exercises help clients get back on the court. The office also promotes peace and wellness with massage therapy and acupuncture treatments.
Equipped with a degree from the National University of Health Sciences, a passion for modern science and alternative medicine, and a desire to educate others about leading a wellness-oriented lifestyle, Doctor of Chiropractic Valentino R. Botti began his practice to guide members of his community toward happier, healthier lives. During each of his one-on-one chiropractic sessions, Dr. Botti gives patients a thorough exam, during which he tests their posture, flexibility, and reflexes, especially when it comes to surprise bear hugs. After determining causes of pain, the doctor then walks patients through a range of holistic services that may target their particular issues, such as massage therapy, acupuncture, or cold-laser therapy. Each session takes place in a private treatment room, enabling patients to emit "oohs" and "aahs" at their own discretion.
