Back pain can put a damper on dancing, sleeping, or even standing, the way that seasonal piranha infestations can put a damper on local swimming holes. Reclaim fun physical activities with today's Groupon: for $49, you get an exam, consultation, and spinal decompression treatment at A Healthy Back (a $149 value).
Housed in one of North Carolina's first chiropractic offices, the squad of licensed practitioners at A Healthy Back masterfully de-kinks and realigns spines. Friendly receptionists greet newcomers by name and put them at ease with a brief tour of the facilities, followed by a five-minute introductory video. Displaying commitment to sustainable wellness as well as short-term relief, 15-year back betterer Dr. Robert Twaddell takes time to inquire about each patient's overall health goals, history, and pain profiles before consulting directly with degenerated discs in fluent American spine language. After the comprehensive examination (an $89 value), column correctees recline on a specially equipped table to enjoy a stress-relieving five-minute massage, followed by a spinal decompression (a $60 value). The session involves an expert stretching and relaxing sequence that nourishes and relaxes damaged discs while helping them expel cellular waste. Gently drawing each joint apart releases backbones from the tyrannical grip of gravity, and the accordion-like pulling-and-pumping action allows the spine to reset and may release a haunting, soothing melody.
Visitors to A Healthy Back will appreciate plentiful parking convenient to the office. After the rejuvenating treatment, curious guests can investigate the many other chiropractic and wellness therapies, such as acupuncture, vertebral subluxation, and ouch removers for headaches, menstrual cramping, and vicious backhanded compliments.
While images of whirring laser beams still conjure thoughts of technophilic futures, the technology is already hard at work at Fayetteville Laser. There, technicians wield noninvasive medical lasers that renovate bods with treatments ranging from body contouring to cellulite reduction. Their iLipo super-pulsed laser works to blast inches off of abdomens, thighs, and buttocks, and their Irradia laser reduces pain and inflammation associated with chronic illness or thinking too hard about how gravity works.
