Like the hand inside of a sock puppet, the spine supports the body’s every motion and keeps it from collapsing into a formless sack of cotton and googly eyes. Maintain your vertebral integrity with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a comprehensive chiropractic exam and treatment package at Boehmer Chiropractic & Acupuncture, P.C. (up to a $225 total value). The package includes:

- Two needleless acupuncture treatments (a $60 value)
The licensed spine straighteners at Boehmer Chiropractic & Acupuncture, P.C. treat chronic and acute pain with personalized therapeutic treatments. After leafing through magazines in the sunlit waiting room, patients consult with a certified spine expert to get to the root causes of pain or health problems, such as back pain, headaches, or shin splints induced from potato-sack marathons. If needed, x-rays may be taken to shed light on structural or functional issues. Then vertebrates stretch out on black-leather tables for a relief adjustment, which helps realign the spine and the surrounding musculature. During the two needleless acupuncture treatments, certified acupuncturists stimulate muscles with 20- to 60-second jolts of noninvasive electrical impulses while explaining the telekinetic art of needleless cross-stitch. The entire session can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on need, treatments performed, and unexpected shifts to daylight-savings time.
