Like the hand inside a sock puppet, the spine supports the body's every motion and keeps it from collapsing into a formless sack. Shape up with this Groupon.
$39 for Three Spinal-Decompression Treatments and Free Consultation ($360 Value)
After a consultation, patients relax on a padded table while computer-guided pressure gently extends the spine to a straight, relaxed position. This process is designed to allow the spinal disks to stretch, increasing blood flow to alleviate pain while accelerating recovery from injury. This deal includes a gait scan, which looks for any pressure points along the ankles, knees, and back during walking.
The chiropractors and massage therapists at HealthMedica Hamilton wield the know-how to administer traditional hands-on adjustments—but not because that’s their only option. In addition to tried-and-true chiropractic tools, the team confronts acute and chronic pain with an arsenal of computerized decompression treatments, Class IV lasers, and custom foot orthotics. Even the ancient technique of acupuncture gets a 21st-century makeover with the advent of laser therapy, which targets the same meridians and energy pathways as acupuncture, but replaces needles with focused beams of light.
