A spine is necessary for walking upright, as well as for finally standing up to the third-grader who keeps stealing your lunch money at the bus stop. For $49, today’s Groupon gets you an exam, an Impulse iQ adjustment, and a needle-less acupuncture session (a $148 value) at Shusman Chiropractic Center on Castor Avenue. The whole thing takes an hour and focuses on the back, neck, and other extremity adjustments. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
An Advanced Proficiency Rated Activator doctor who specializes in natural pain management, Dr. Jeffrey Shusman has been de-kinkifying the backs of Philadelphians for nearly 25 years. Your session begins with a consultation to determine the nature and source of your body's bugaboos, after which Dr. Shusman will administer an Impulse iQ adjustment. During this adjustment, the Impulse iQ—a hand-held, computerized device 100 times faster than traditional chiropractic methods—lightly taps your back and feeds the data of each tap back into the device's microcomputer, which uses it to set the frequency of subsequent taps. Once the spine is in alignment, the Impulse iQ stops automatically. Relaxed muscles, soothed nerves, and internal organs spontaneously breaking out into song are common results of this gentle procedure.
Your appointment finishes with a needle-less acupuncture session, during which specific meridians in the body are stimulated with electromagnetic waves—redirecting the flow of the body’s energy and providing relief from a number of physical ailments (sinus headaches, chronic pain, post-penguin depression, menstrual cramps, etc.). Step out of Shusman Chiropractic Center prepared to reenter society standing tall and feeling as put together as a teenage boy band made out of Legos.

- Dr. Jeff is a life saver! I had been to many doctors and no one was able to relieve my back pain - until I came to Dr. Jeff.
