Dr. Eric LaMey, DC, has dedicated himself to helping patients banish pain and live healthier lives out of the Washtenaw Wellness Center in Ypsilanti and the Onsted Family Chiropractic Center. Using a holistic approach, the licensed chiropractor considers all aspects of his patient's health and lifestyle in order to single out the underlying causes of ailments, rather than merely treating symptoms. He also uses pulsed electro-magnetic therapy, which works to alter the body's inherent magnetic fields in order to alleviate pain. By moving magnetic fields across the body, the therapy introduces an electric current to the soft tissues, stimulating them without the use of heat or joke hand-buzzers. In many patients, this FDA-approved treatment can help reduce swelling and joint pain and trigger beneficial reactions in blood, muscle, bone, and cartilage.

Their holistic, drug-free treatments promote health and overall wellness by stimulating circulation and improving the body's range of motion.
