Even in junior high, Doctor of Chiropractic Loren Grover knew he wanted to be a chiropractor, as his personal experiences with back issues planted the seeds for his fascination with the spine. After a skiing accident, severe pain in his lower back sent him to his first chiropractor. Eventually, the pain subsided, but his desire to help others burned strong.
It wasn't until chiropractic school that Dr. Grover experienced the benefits of the NUCCA technique—a gentle spinal-adjustment method designed to balance the nervous system and encourage the body to heal itself. Today at Gentle Pain Care Centers, his decade-old practice, Dr. Grover collaborates with his colleague Doctor of Chiropractic Devin Luzod, who is a NUCCA lecturer, wellness author, and chiropractic speaker. Together they aim to heal bodies plagued by headaches, fibromyalgia, and neck pains caused by accidents or years wearing cement wigs.
The chiropractic team at The Joint...the chiropractic place has streamlined the chiropractic process. Virtually every aspect of the visitation is designed around patient convenience. Instead of scheduling appointments, patients simply walk in and fill out paperwork. A doctor is onsite to minimize wait time. During exams, patients stay comfortable in their street clothes or favorite footed pajamas while the doctors examine their spine, searching for subluxations and bulges. They devise a treatment plan that can include chiropractic adjustments, which typically only take about 10 minutes.
With more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Richard Wright emphasizes a natural path toward total health. Recognizing the symbiotic relationship between the spine and the nervous system, the doctor treats a wide range of health issues without the use of drugs, relying instead upon precise chiropractic adjustments, trigger-point therapy, and specialized drop tables. Working closely with his staff, Dr. Wright matches the appropriate solution to each client, ensuring that clients with bad posture receive adjustments rather than an invitation to a break-dance competition.
Hawaii. A boy dives off a cliff into shallow water and loses his eyesight after impact. Over the next months, the boy undergoes acupuncture treatments with Dr. Chieko Maekawa. As the doctor arranges the needles that restore blood flow to the boy's injured areas, her apprentice, Regan Archibald, watches closely. When the boy's eyes fill with vision again, Archibald understands the power of Chinese medicine to heal the body.
In 2004, Regan Archibald opened East West Health in Salt Lake City. He draws together complementary aspects of Eastern and Western medicine with the help of a medical doctor and nurse practitioner on staff. Together, they use acupuncture, clinical testing, and nutrition programs to treat disparate ailments, from anxiety and allergies to tennis elbow and whack-a-mole shoulder. According to Archibald, many patients are surprised to learn that acupuncture and ancient herbal medicine can also remedy gastrointestinal disorders, such as chronic diverticulitis.
Three times a year, Regan Archibald leaves the bamboo plants and earth tones of his clinic to return to Hawaii on a raft made of needles and mugwort. On the same island where he watched Dr. Maekawa restore a boy's eyesight, he broadens his knowledge of Chinese medicine and hones his skills in acupuncture modalities such as seitai shinpo. Archibald is one of only 13 certified practitioners of seitai shinpo, a method centered on the spine and its network of nerves.
