Pain. It’s something a lot of people have, but no one wants. At Complete Health and Chiropractic Center of Lawrenceville, becoming pain-free as soon as possible is the goal.

Complete Health aims to provide compassionate chiropractic care by professionals who are highly educated and qualified to rehabilitate the body, starting with the neck down to the feet.

Doctors Jeff Clancey, FACO, and Rich Berkowitz, FACO, both graduates of Life University School of Chiropractic, also have masters’ degrees in sports health science.

With offices located in Lawrenceville and Yardley, Complete Health has many patients who have found relief from bodily pain after few visits. After beginning treatment at Complete Health, some patients have found that they are able to sleep, walk, and just move without the chronic pain that takes away from the joys of life for the first time in years.

“I want to inspire people, returning people to living their lives again,” Dr. Haig said. “If you have ever had a poor experience with a health care professional, I want to change that.”

Complete Health specializes in areas like headaches, tennis and golfer’s elbow, sprains, strains, joint replacements, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injury rehabilitation, whiplash treatment, disc problems and more. Treatments include physical therapy, spinal decompression therapy, yoga, and, of course, chiropractic care. The office is home to a yoga studio and well-stocked fitness center with machines and weights for every part of the body.

“The foundation of our success in treating patients is the synergy derived from the team of health care specialists and various modalities,” Dr. Clancey said. “We create individualized treatment programs based upon the patient’s diagnosis and needs. Treatment may be limited to one discipline or may be a combination of chiropractic, physical therapy, message therapy, and yoga.”

In addition to Doctors Clancey and Berkowitz, Dr. Josh Sand, CCSP, and physical therapists Bryan Haig, MSPT, and Dena Juno, PTA, aid in the beneficial treatment of patients.

In addition to its medical staff, Complete Health has also added a yoga component to its facility. Dr. Clancey’s vision of creating a welcoming physical space for experts in healthcare, fitness, and healing to support the local community has come to fruition.

Romy Toussaint was a patient at Complete Health for three years due to pain from being a runner. Now, she teaches yoga at the facility, integrating her training in Iyengar, Anusara and Kundalini Yoga into a Vinyasa style of Asana practice. She uses music, poetry, dance and hands-on assistance to make classes fun and challenging, while emphasizing alignment.

“Yoga is like your everyday physical therapy,” said Toussaint, a mother of four sons and native of Haiti who studied international relations and French at Rochester State University in New York. “We have everyday people from young to old who just want to feel better. Our focus in every class is for everyone to feel like they are being cared about and cared for. The combination of chiropractic care and yoga, a thousand-year-old tradition, helps people to have less pain and feel refreshed emotionally.”

Complete Health’s yoga clients describe themselves as everyone from a a retiree who wants to be able to play with the grandkids to someone who has been working hard and needs to figure out how to become healthier.

“We teach everyone to take what they learn here when they come to a class and use it throughout the day to relax the body, and just breathe,” Toussaint said. “This helps people to relax, and speak more calmly to their children, coworkers, family and friends. Yoga is about non-violence. It’s about peacefulness. ”

Toussaint credits the entire yoga staff with the success of the Complete Yoga program. “Its about the entire expert level of all of the instructors who teach yoga at Complete Health,” she said.. “These wonderful individuals have been teaching yoga for years, and have used their understanding and talents to help individuals explore the entire body, mind, and spirit continuum. I love yoga because it makes me do everything better.”

Many people today seek alternative ways to “feel better” other than traditional medicine. Although advances in the medical world can save lives, in non-life threatening situations, a more holistic approach is becoming the choice of many individuals seeking treatment. The staff at Complete Health are always continuing their education and learning about things that are on the cutting edge of their profession.
