From Our Editors
Music from local artists pulses through the air, and artwork from area paintsmiths decorates the wall, but it’s not a trendy gallery—it’s a chiropractic center. Proactive Chiropractic’s doctors, Joe Pollack and Ryan Mullen use elegant touches such as these to put their patients at ease before and while rendering modern chiropractic care to alleviate pain and discomfort. Their methods include everything from spinal adjustments and massage to corrective exercises that teach bodies how to balance and function properly while avoiding aggravation and injury.
As providers of holistic care, they also instruct on ideal nutritional habits and offer lifestyle advice, counseling clients on choices they can make to prevent health challenges. Through their well-rounded approach, which also includes spinal and posture screenings, they treat all forms of lower-back and neck pain, as well as sciatica and injuries such as whiplash incurred during car crashes. Dr. Mullen’s background as an athlete informs his particular empathy with patients dealing with sports injuries. Dr. Pollack, a Rockville native, takes the lead on infusing Proactive Chiropractic with the flavors of local culture—one of the reasons Terrapins crawl around the office, the other being that their sturdy backs, or “shells,” serve as something to which patients can aspire.
