Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading "kick me" signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon to Peninsula Pain & Rehabilitation Center in Newport News. Choose between two options:
Helmed by licensed chiropractor Michael S. Cook, Peninsula Pain & Rehabilitation Center eases back-based aches with a bevy of therapeutic services. During a hydrotherapy session, lounge atop a rippling AquaMed bed as hidden water jets dispatch thousands of heated pulses to knead away neck and back pain, muscle soreness, and embarrassing memories of limbo mishaps. Treat torsos to three 30-minute massages, or follow a single 15-minute stint with a stress-sloughing acupuncture session during which pro bodkin-brandishers deftly adorn trouble spots with stainless-steel needles. Either set of treatments may provide patrons with a greater muscular range of motion, increased circulation, and the ability to maneuver through rooms full of crisscrossed laser beams with the ease of an art-stealing snake.
Peninsula Pain & Rehabilitation Center
Dr. Michael Cook sees a person's health directly correlating with the condition of their nervous system. Following this logic, virtually every illness and ailment can be traced to the spinal cord, which transmits electric signals between the brain and the body's complex system of blinking traffic lights. Though skilled in such far-reaching, drug-free techniques as acupuncture and Gua Sha, Dr. Cook and his team primarily focus on chronic pain in the neck and lower back. Dr. Cook thoroughly examines spines to assuage soreness, hunting for herniated discs with hands and x-rays before nudging them into place with adjustments or taking pressure off with gentle, FDA-cleared lumbar decompression techniques. Dry hydrotherapy beds augment pain relief by massaging muscles from behind a waterproof barrier with a series of warm-water jets, which knead away tension and boost circulation as they rove over the back.
