Spines are fickle beasts, easily irked by day-to-day situations such as slouching over a keyboard or being stepped on by a rhinoceros. Put an out-of-whack support beam back in whack with today's Groupon: for $59, you get an exam, consultation, and treatment at Bayside Chiropractic (a $160 value).
Doctors of Chiropractic Paul O’Brien and Meghan Schaffer kick off chiropractic sessions with a consultation, during which they explore a patient’s family history and listen to any concerns. A limbo contest first determines how low you can go; then the doctor thoroughly examines your bone frame with the Sacro-Occipital Technique, a holistic approach that focuses on the relationship between the tailbone and the base of the skull. Following the exam, the doctor uses SOT adjustment techniques, which combine cranial and organ therapy with spinal and extremity work, to alleviate such ailments as headaches, arthritis, and joint pain.
In addition to general chiropractic, the skeletal specialists emphasize women’s and children’s wellness care by addressing such issues as colic, morning sickness, and excessive headstands. Bayside Chiropractic will also donate 10% of today’s Groupon proceeds to the Rhode Island Birth Network, an organization dedicated to educating women so they can make informed pregnancy and childbirth decisions.
