Dr. Hamilton Wetzel, an Arcadia native and 3rd generation chiropractor, is the new owner of Integrity Chiropractic and Wellness in Findlay. His grandfather started out in the 1930-40s, and then his father had a practice in Carey for over 30 years. After moving away for a while, Dr. Wetzel was interested in returning to the area with his family. His father mentioned that Dr. Petro, past owner of Integrity Chiropractic and Wellness, would be retiring soon. Timing lined up perfectly, and Dr. Wetzel and his wife, Dr. Jennifer Conway, purchased the business in April 2019. It is located at 2113 Tiffin Ave., Suite 101.
Straight away, the doctors added cold laser and nutritional services. More recent offerings include massage therapy, and weekly yoga classes. “My focus has been on balancing the brain and neurological systems of the body,” says Dr. Wetzel. “By adjusting the spine and nervous system, add on top of that the cold laser, and it helps balance the body so much faster.”
Cold laser, which does not involve heat as it’s non-thermal, is anti-inflammatory, and targets a very specific area of the body. It is used to treat torn or otherwise damaged tissue, such as patients with sporting injuries or chronic knee and shoulder pain. Cold laser helps speed up healing time by 40-50%.
Some goals of treatment include helping patients cut back on medications, or getting off of them all together. “We can help with digestive, neurological, and other health issues naturally,” Dr. Wetzel explains. Current patients range in age from 3 to late 80s, and include children with digestive issues or ADHD, high school athletes, or adults wishing to overhaul their health and lifestyle because of ongoing pain and other health issues.
Many patients first come in because of a known health issue. “Over time, that goes away. Then they notice they’re sleeping better, they’re getting sick less often, and they have more energy.” Monthly adjustments help keep their bodies healthy. Research shows that your white blood cells go up by 50% after 15 minutes. “Your neuro-immunity goes through the roof after an adjustment,” Wetzel notes.
