Music from local artists pulses through the air, and artwork from area paintsmiths decorates the wall, but it’s not a trendy gallery—it’s a chiropractic center. Proactive Chiropractic’s doctors, Joe Pollack and Ryan Mullen use elegant touches such as these to put their patients at ease before and while rendering modern chiropractic care to alleviate pain and discomfort. Their methods include everything from spinal adjustments and massage to corrective exercises that teach bodies how to balance and function properly while avoiding aggravation and injury.
As providers of holistic care, they also instruct on ideal nutritional habits and offer lifestyle advice, counseling clients on choices they can make to prevent health challenges. Through their well-rounded approach, which also includes spinal and posture screenings, they treat all forms of lower-back and neck pain, as well as sciatica and injuries such as whiplash incurred during car crashes. Dr. Mullen’s background as an athlete informs his particular empathy with patients dealing with sports injuries. Dr. Pollack, a Rockville native, takes the lead on infusing Proactive Chiropractic with the flavors of local culture—one of the reasons Terrapins crawl around the office, the other being that their sturdy backs, or “shells,” serve as something to which patients can aspire.
The experts at Advanced Spine & Wellness center believe that a large number of physical problems can be traced back to issues with the spine. Poor posture, back and neck pain, and headaches may all be signs of a weakened or damaged spinal column. By treating these problems at their source, the center may be able to not only resolve existing symptoms, but improve the function and performance of patients' bodies for the long term. Of course, every person is different, which is why the doctors perform one-on-one consultations with patients before crafting a personalized treatment plan. Thanks to a diverse and experienced staff, these plans may include not only chiropractic care, but physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, and medical pain management, ensuring that issues will be tackled from every angle for the best possible outcome. This approach appears to be effective: high-performance athletes, including former professional football players, dancers, and professional arm wrestlers, have praised the center's team.
Since becoming a certified acupuncturist in 2001, Dr. Ying Li has helped clients suffering from carpel tunnel, migraines, frozen shoulders, and back pain. Though her approach to each of these ailments is tailored to the client in need, her philosophy remains the same for everyone: address painful symptoms and pursue a healthier, more balanced body. At her clinic, she combines acupuncture treatments with other types of Eastern and Western medicine, including acupressure massage and nutrition programs. These services strive to help clients with both chronic and acute conditions, as well as those on-again, off-again conditions that just won't move on with their lives. Visitors can also benefit from reflexology sessions, during which different areas of the feet are massaged to affect corresponding body parts.
Dr. Shirin Aghahosseini began her career studying radiology in Germany, where she found herself working with cancer patients for almost a decade. Fueled by a desire to help prevent illness rather than just treat it, she decide to change direction. After studying acupuncture in China, she eventually opened Holistic Life Center. Today, she's able to focus on a preventive approach to medicine using tools such as acupuncture, herbology, and wrapping patients in many, many layers of bubble wrap. She uses these techniques to treat a wide spectrum of medical conditions, ranging from asthma to carpal tunnel syndrome to knee pain. Her reach, however, extends beyond physical maladies. Using acupuncture, for example, she attempts to redirect and unblock energy to help heal those suffering from problems such as anxiety, depression, and headaches.
