Who: Great Works Chiropractic

What: Eschewing traditional methods of symptom-driven medical diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Seth LaFlamme helps people by focusing on corrective, rather than palliative, care. Equating his methods to putting out a fire and clearing the smoke instead of removing an alarm's batteries, LaFlamme uses extensive neurological and structural measures to track a patient's progress throughout his or her treatment. He views this type of approach as inherently sustainable by honoring rather than silencing the body’s cries for help. With the recent expansion of his offices in South Berwick, Maine, LaFlamme, along with his wife and partner, Dr. Briana Duga, provides expanded adult and pediatric services for whole-family care.

Where: 249 Main St., South Berwick, Maine
