Like a car, the human body needs occasional realignment to ensure that 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 $38, you get a spinal and nervous-system exam (a $95 value) and a one-hour therapeutic massage (a $66 value) at Brown Chiropractic in Yarmouth (a $161 total value).
At Brown Chiropractic, Dr. Rebecca Brown and her team relieve spinal and nervous-system stress and empower patients to maintain good relationships with their backbones. After collecting new patient forms, a chiropractor begins the exam by gently palpating the spine to check for curvatures, any spastic muscles that are chaffing nearby nerves, and vertebral disks that may be considering a move to a stress-free career in the shin. A computer then analyzes circulation problems and motor nerve impairment, and controlled movement of achy joints screens for damaged tissue. Depending on information gathered during the exam and subsequent interviews of your childhood PE teachers, the doctor may administer x-rays to further scrutinize alignment and bone growth history before deciding on a proper course of treatment.
After getting to know your spine on a first-name basis, the knowledgeable hands of the chiropractor will be fully prepared to target individual concerns during a custom one-hour massage that slowly stretches tight tendons and soothes abiding back and neck pain with deep-tissue and trigger-point therapy. Aside from its relaxing perks, banishing the back's bumps can also help dispel symptoms plaguing both body and mind, easing carpal tunnel syndrome, relieving jaw pain, and erasing an unexplained desire to loiter near French bell towers.
