As the saying goes, "Don't step on a crack, or you'll fall and break your back, rendering yourself helpless before the great primordial serpent that lurks beneath the sidewalk." Avoid becoming snake food with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a chiropractic exam, treatment, x-rays, and a 30-minute hydrotherapy massage at Mississippi Chiropractic (a $417 value).
Founded by Dr. Clark Pitcairn on the premise that chronic pain and many maladies begin with spinal misalignment, Mississippi Chiropractic offers drug-free services to help patients achieve a healthy spine and nervous system. After an initial consultation, your doctor will work to locate spinal misalignments called subluxations, which create pressure on spinal nerves, interfering with the nervous system and associated bodily functions such as the belly button's role as third eye. A thorough physical assessment, which may include orthopedic tests and x-rays, ensures successful treatment, achieving lithe and limber lumbar regions and overall slinky spines. A half-hour hydrotherapy treatment massages and relaxes aching connective tissues, so you'll leave the Mississippi premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
Common reasons for consulting a chiropractor include back pain, whiplash, sciatica, and carpal tunnel, among others. Dr. Clark himself is a patient, having made his first visit to a chiropractor at age seven. After regular visits healed a chronic upper-respiratory problem that prevented him from participating in childhood sports, the doctor decided to make the healing art his life's work. His tranquil, sage-colored office is filled with soft lighting, wooden accents, and bucolic artwork for an environment leagues away from the sterility and cabbage smells of many medical practices. Top-of-the-line technology and leather-padded tables ensure the comfort and safety of each patient.
This deal is only good for new clients, or for existing clients who refer at least one new client.

Dr. Clark Pitcairn might have a hard time remembering the first time he ever heard about chiropractic. It was the medicine of choice for his family when he was growing up, and he has been a patient of the drug-free techniques since he was seven. At that time, he suffered from a chronic cough that went away only after completing a series of chiropractic adjustments.
Today, he and his two sisters are all chiropractors, providing the same holistic, hands-on treatments that they received as children. Dr. Pitcairn draws upon the body’s natural ability to heal itself by first examining the spine with x-rays and steady hands, locating the sources of headaches, chronic pain, and poor TV reception. Then, he un-pinches nerves by gently guiding discs and vertebra into their proper spots.
