Like a car, the human body needs occasional realignment to ensure a pleasant journey down the sidewalk doesn't become a careening detour into someone's kitchen. Keep human parts functioning properly with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a comprehensive physical exam (a $130 value), digital diagnostic x-rays (a $255 value), and an initial treatment at Anderson Chiropractic Center (up to a $543 total value).
Dr. Anderson and his squad of spine whisperers put bones and minds at ease with a gentle touch, doling out healing sessions in a plush office with soothing, blue-walled therapy bays. An initial comprehensive exam probes into the nature of ailments before a modern system snaps digital x-rays to reveal potentially serious underlying conditions, as well as to give doctors a precise picture of the skeleton and any antics it might be up to, such as playing its ribs like a xylophone when you're not looking. Depending on the nature of the corporeal distress, the initial chiropractic treatment may incorporate any or all of the following specialized services: a moist-heat-therapy session (a $23 value), an electrical muscle stimulation (a $25 value), an intersegmental traction session (a $25 value), a spinal adjustment (a $50 value), and a therapeutic ultrasound (a $35 value).
A spinal adjustment puts vertebrae back in line when joints and their surrounding tissues have lost mobility due to trauma or repetitive stress resulting from overuse, sports, or intense Scrabble tournaments. Intersegmental traction further stretches spinal joints via a table of special rollers, which adds breathing space between discs and boosts the circulation of spinal fluids. For injured soft tissue, the team might combine moist-heat therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, and therapeutic ultrasound to reduce pain and swelling, increase blood flow, and relax spasms.
