Bodyworks Connection Massage
Doctor of Chiropractic Jerry DalCanton is good with kids. A member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and the resident expert at Kids First Chiropractic, he routinely aligns the spines of children, and he once served as a high-school basketball coach. But the doctor—whose credentials also include a postgraduate-level chiropractic certification in spinal trauma—hasn't limited his focus to kids. A past life saw him working as a chiropractor for the members of Pittsburgh's former lacrosse team; today he performs adjustments for both kids and adults, erasing spine-related pain with therapeutic exercise, nutrition programs, spinal manipulation, and—under the banner of Bodyworks Connection Massage—massage therapy.
During spinal-manipulation sessions, Dr. Jerry applies corrective pressure to both sides of an adult client's spine, aiming to restore alignment and enhance mobility in vertebral joints. He uses a gentler form of this treatment for children, helping them recover after one too many games of kids' caber tossing. Dr. Jerry and his staff also check for hard-to-find problems using 3-D posture analysis. Based on the results of these tests, he can create a recovery program that combines mirror-image exercises and adjustments.
