Chiropractic medicine is known for its non-surgical approach to chronic pain and other musculoskeletal conditions, but also has much more to offer. However, finding the right doctor can be as daunting as shopping for a comfortable pair of shoes. Here, three reputable practitioners talk about securing individualized care and getting the most out of chiropractic.
Edwards has owned and operated Life Chiropractic Clinic for 15 years, and specializes in chiropractic services and nutrition counseling. She also provides products by Foot Levelers, a company that produces custom-made orthotic footwear, and the clinic has recently added a Foot Leveler kiosk. The device scans the feet to obtain data pertaining to the arches and how they affect the body’s overall balance.
On Saturday, August 5, Relax the Back will be hosting an in-store health fair from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The health fair is designed for people to meet professionals in all areas of spinal health.

There will be demonstrations all day that include pillow fittings, full body massage, work station assessments, car seat fittings and natural back traction.
The Upstate is blessed to have a variety of businesses and practitioners that are dedicated to helping prevent cancer as well as working to improve the quality of life of cancer victims. In our own backyard, Dr. Connie Casebolt of Wellness by Design, in Greenville, incorporates into her integrative medicine practice modalities that improve quality of life and support the immune system. These include saunas, various supplements and some specialty IV’s, notably Vitamin C and ozone. And, as you will note in almost all discussions of cancer prevention, making dietary changes—getting rid of all inflammatory foods—is essential.
Before buying, be informed and read labels. The word ‘natural’ can be misleading so it’s important to know what to avoid. Steer clear of anything that contains fragrance, sulfates, gluten, phthalates, triclosan, parabens and musk. Silver Wing Essentials cosmetics is one line of skin care products that offers a vegan, cruelty-free alternative.
