Like trampolines and foresight, backs get taken for granted until a malfunction causes its owner to errantly back flip into a neighbor's cactus garden. Avoid unforeseen spine scenarios with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour massage (a $50 value) and chiropractic consultation (up to a $60 value) at Pinnacle Physical Medicine and Rehab (up to a $110 total value).
Helmed by Dr. Ted Showalter, the vertebral forensics team at Pinnacle Physical Medicine and Rehab investigate spinal inconsistencies and soothe backs on the fritz. Patients will sit down with a doctor for an in-depth consultation, where he listens intently as clients discuss their medical history, describe current aches and pains, and voice concerns. The consultation lasts 75 to 90 minutes on average, and backache-ridden patients can freely ask any questions they want about the state of their pain, the potential causes, or the wisdom of dressing as a question mark for Halloween. Once a thorough sketch of the spinal situation has been ascertained, patients reward their musculoskeletal frames with an hour of doctor-supervised therapeutic massage. During the knead-a-thon, muscles melt as a tendon whisperer targets pain and aims to unlock tension from its cage like a classroom hamster when the teacher steps out.
Though Pinnacle Physical Medicine occasionally features new client specials, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Pinnacle Physical Medicine and Rehab
At Pinnacle Physical Medicine and Rehab, Doctor of Chiropractic Ted Showalter has seen several sides of the health industry. Before becoming a chiropractor, he spent eight years as an emergency-room nurse, observing the regular use of conventional medical techniques, such as drugs and surgery. With those observations in mind, he began chiropractic school and began to view the body not as a sum of parts, but as a whole, a self-contained system designed to keep itself healthy.
A chiropractor since 1999, Dr. Showalter has gathered an arsenal of noninvasive procedures designed to rid bodies of pain and keep them functioning at their peaks. Apart from spinal adjustments and massages, he checks the body for toxins and helps curb smoking and other addictions with auriculotherapy.
