What You'll Get
Driven to extinction by relentless meteor-induced anxiety, dinosaurs left behind evidence of their tension-filled existence in the form of rigid, stony remains. Soothe stiff skeletons with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a chiropractic exam (up to a $136 value), x-rays (up to a $160 value), and a spinal adjustment (a $50 value) plus your choice of either one hour of massage therapy or one hour of private Pilates instruction (a $60 value) at Rainey Chiropractic on Venice Boulevard (up to a $406 total value).
With two decades of chiropractic practice behind him, Dr. Robert Rainey achieved his spine-master status after a personal injury and its chiropractic solution inspired him to become a vertebral vindicator for others. As an avid runner, Dr. Rainey designed the deep-tissue therapeutic massage to reduce pain and quicken muscle recovery after such athletic endeavors as extended pavement pounding and long-distance piggyback relays. You can also opt for a more gentle Swedish or shiatsu massage. Private Pilates instruction applies intensive stretching and strengthening techniques to mellow out tightly wound muscle groups and restore spinal alignment to its balanced neutral state, ideal for settling arguments between the right and left kidneys.
Dr. Rainey suggests stretching treatments out over at least two visits—receive the diagnostic exam and x-rays (along with a complimentary consultation) before formulating a bend-mending plan of action for what ails you. Adjustment is the chiropractor's backbone bailiwick, employed by using specialized instruments or his own healing hands to gently lead vertebrae into alignment.
Though Rainey Chiropractic sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Rainey Chiropractic
Ten years on, and the pain still persisted. After a decade of ineffective treatments for a foot injury, Doctor of Chiropractic Robert Rainey finally turned to a chiropractor, a decision that paved a path to a quick recovery and inspired him to pursue a degree from the Cleveland Chiropractic College. The kinesiology major who had put in a seven-year stint as a respiratory therapist at UCLA quickly subscribed to the theories behind the natural treatments, which steer specialists past symptoms in search of a unifying cause or an ill-placed shoe pebble.
In 1993, Dr. Rainey opened Rainey Chiropractic, where he has spent the last 19 years targeting back pain with spinal adjustments, therapeutic massage, and Pilates exercises. Through a deep understanding of neuromuscular conditions, the spinal column, and the nerve network, he comforts his clients without relying on habit-forming drugs, risky surgery, or yoga postures that can only be bought on the black market.
