Kevin Trembush says he loves skeptics.

He himself became aware of the value of chiropractic medicine when nothing else relieved the pain he felt from playing sports in high school and college. “I’ll never forget that first adjustment,” he says. “It was like that pain and pressure was trying to get out of my body but just needed a little help. That is when I knew I would be a chiropractor.”

Trembush started Advantage Health & Wellness on the Mileground in 2005 and moved it to Burroughs Street in 2010. Chiropractors take a drug-free, hands-on approach to a broad range of health conditions—especially back pain, neck pain, and headaches. For that reason, Advantage bills itself as “primary care for your spine.” But the clinic’s services can also help with complaints as diverse as pain anywhere in the body and with chronic conditions. Over time, the clinic has come to offer a combination of physical therapy, medical massage, and chiropractic adjustments for a complementary approach.

Advantage practitioners make a point of explaining the chiropractic approach to new clients, detailing a treatment plan and answering all questions. In addition, the clinic’s website offers information about ways chiropractic treatments may help manage chronic ailments, including fibromyalgia and asthma. And the clinic encourages dietary and lifestyle habits for all-around wellness. — PK
