Like a car, the human body needs occasional realignment to ensure that a pleasant journey down the sidewalk doesn’t become a careening detour into someone’s kitchen. Keep human parts functioning properly with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a one-hour massage and chiropractic treatment at Rainey Chiropractic (up to a $329 value). The treatment includes the following:
- One hour of massage therapy
- Diagnostic chiropractic exam
- X-rays as necessary
- A spinal adjustment
Dr. Robert Rainey relieves tortured nerves of the pressures exerted by misaligned spinal columns with a combination of massage and chiropractic techniques. Doctor-directed questions help to develop each patient’s case history like a snapshot of your DNA, taking into account frequent pains, past injuries, and most embarrassing schoolyard nicknames. X-ray machines gaze through superhero suits to instruct doctors on the potential roots of bodily discomforts and allow them to tailor slight bone twists and vertebrae turns to resolve any issues. The clinic’s staff divulges every corporal secret they have gleaned to patients before doctors commence pressure-assisted skeletal realignments.
Finally, therapists target tension with the muscular manipulations of either deep-tissue therapeutic, gentle Swedish, or shiatsu massage to aid in skeletal recovery. Dr. Rainey suggests stretching treatments out over at least two visits—receive the diagnostic exam and x-rays as necessary before formulating a bend-mending plan of action.
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.
