>>POWERED BY CHANNEL FOUR, THE LOCAL STATION, THIS IS “LOOK LOCAL.”>>Karen: WELCOME TO “LOOK LOCAL.” I’M KAREN ADAMS, THE PLACE WHERE WE CELEBRATE THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST OF WHERE WE LIVE AND THE DISTINCT CHARM AND CHARACTER OF THE CITY. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO OR SOMEONE TO HELP, IT’S ALWAYS BETTER TO “LOOK LOCAL.” THIS WEEK WE’RE FEATURING NORTH FLORIDA MEDICAL CENTER, GRANITE TRANSFORMATION, BATH PLANET AND 904 THIN.COM. I’M JOINED TODAY BY THE PRESIDENT AND COOWNER OF NORTH FLORIDA MEDICAL CENTER AS WELL AS THE BACK AND NECK INSTITUTE AND ALSO WITH US IS ADAM WHO IS THE CHIROPRACTIC DIRECTOR. THANK YOU BOTH FOR COMING IN TODAY.>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING US.>>Karen: LET’S START WITH YOU. WHAT KIND OF THINGS DO YOU SEE?>>WELL, IN OUR PRACTICE WE SEE A WIDE VARIETY OF PATIENTS. THREE OF THE MOST COMMON WITH GENERAL WELLNESS PATIENTS. WELLNESS PATIENTS ARE THE ONES WHO AREN’T NECESSARILY EXPERIENCING PAIN AT THE MOMENT. JUST TUNE-UP. THIS OCCUPIES A GOOD PERCENTAGE OF OUR PRACTICE. SECOND GROUP OF PEOPLE WE SEE ARE THE FOLKS COMING IN WITH A PARTICULAR PAIN THEY’RE EXPERIENCING. MAYBE NECK PAIN, HEADACHE OR SOMETHING THAT’S BOTHERING THEM FOR HOWEVER LONG. A BIG PORTION OF OUR PRACTICE, 50%, 60% ARE THE PATIENTS WHO HAVE BEEN IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT AT SOME POINT AND WHAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT CAR ACCIDENTS IS THAT THE SAME DAY OR EVEN THAT NIGHT, YOU MIGHT NOT FEEL MUCH, IF ANY PAIN. THE REASON FOR THAT IS YOUR ADRENALINE IS PUMPING SO HARD. YOU MIGHT FEEL GREAT THAT DAY OR NIGHT UNTIL THE NEXT DAY AND YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE HIT BY A MAC TRUCK. IT’S LIKE A HARD WORKOUT. YOU DON’T FEEL ANYTHING UNTIL THE NEXT DAY.>>Karen: TELL US ABOUT THE NEW PRACTICE THAT YOU’RE JUST OPENING UP.>>BRAND NEW PRACTICE, STATE OF THE ART AND IT’S 7,000 SQUARE FEET. WHAT MAKES THE PLACE SPECIAL IS THERE’S MULTIPLE SPECIALTIES UNDER ONE ROOF, CHIROPRACTIC CARE, WE HAVE PHYSICAL THERAPY, WE HAVE MASSAGE THERAPY, WE ALSO HA FAMILY MEDICINE AND WE HAVE PAIN MANAGEMENT. AND SOON WE’RE ALSO GOING TO BE ADDING CARDIOLOGY AND GASTROENTEROLOGY AND A BRAND NEW X-RAY IN HOUSE SO AS SOON AS THE PATIENT GETS X-RAYS DONE, A PHYSICIAN CAN REVIEW THEM AND REVIEW THE RESULTS RIGHT WITH THE PATIENT RIGHT THERE.>>Karen: AND WE’RE GETTING A LITTLE WALK-THROUGH OF THE NEW FACILITY ON THIS VIDEO. TELL US WHAT WE’RE SEEING HERE.>>THIS IS SOME OF THE PHYSICAL THERAPY AREA, SOME MACHINES THAT PATIENTS CAN WORK ON FOR VARIETY OF REASONS FROM REFERRALS TO INJURIES. WHAT ARE THE OTHER — WHATEVER REASON HERE IN FOR.>>Karen: I THINK IT GIVES PEOPLE AT HOME A GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IS ALL INVOLVED WITH THIS FACILITY. ORIGINALLY IT WAS THE BACK AND NECK INSTITUTE. NOW THE NEW FACILITY IS EVEN LARGER AND MORE ENCOMPASS SOING YOU’RE ABLE TO TREAT MORE PATIENTS AND HAVE QUALITY CARE, RIGHT?>>CORRECT.>>Karen: THERE’S A SHOT OF YOU. WHAT ARE YOU DOING THERE?>>WE’RE TAKING A PAKT THROUGH A FULL X-RAY OVERVIEW. SHE HAD A PARTICULAR PAIN SHE CAME IN. IT WAS LOW BACK PAIN. SO WE DECIDED WE WANTED TO TAKE SOME X-RAYS FOR HER AND WE WERE JUST SHOWING HER EVERYTHING GOING ON.>>Karen: WHERE IS THIS LOCATED?>>IT’S LOCATIONS AT THE INTERSECTION OF BAY MEADOWS AND 95. IT’S BEHIND THE BANK OF AMERICA SO IT’S VERY CENTRALLY LOCATED.>>Karen: I WOULD SAY IF YOU’RE AT THE BEACHES OR WHETHER YOU’RE COMING FROM DOWNTOWN OR MANDARIN, YOU GUYS ARE REALLY CENTRALLY LOCATED.>>THAT WAS THE THOUGHT FROM THE BEGINNING.>>Karen: AND WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO ANYBODY LISTENING RIGHT NOW IF THEY’RE EXPERIENCING ANY OF THIS TYPE OF PAIN?>>SO FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH OF MARCH, WE’RE OFFERING COMPLEMENTARY CONSULTATIONS WHERE WE TALK THROUGH THE HEALTH HISTORY AND GO THROUGH CONCERNS YOU MAY HAVE AND WE TAKE X-RAYS AS NEEDED AND WE’LL LET YOU KNOW IF WE CAN HELP YOU.>>Karen: THAT’S WONDERFUL.>>GIVE US A CHANCE.
