Our Proven Method

We have a philosophy in our office that people are a whole person, not just a spine. Subluxations and conditions of the spine can affect all areas of the body, well beyond common neck and back pain. That’s why we treat our patients like whole person and employ additional methods and techniques to help you along your healing journey.

A skilled chiropractor and proper adjustments can dramatically reduce discomfort and improve overall health. Why stop there? The additional treatments we offer compliment your chiropractic care to help you get better faster.

These methods are medically proven and backed up by data, but that isn’t really the type of proof that really gets us excited. We know it works but when a patient sees it working; that’s the real proof. It’s a teacher that takes fewer antihistamines because her allergies aren’t getting in the way as much. The proof is when a mechanic walks through the door with more pep each time they visit.

Now, it does take a step of faith. Not a leap, like others may ask of you, just a step. And you’ve already taken that step, you are reading our website and learning about our treatment methods and conditions treated.

Bosu Activity is a balance-building exercise that uses a dome-shaped half-ball to create an unstable surface, while the ball itself remains stable. This form of therapy works well for anyone who needs to regain balance through increasing muscle memory and core strength.

“Wobbling” is a form of Neuro-Muscular Re-Education and balance training. The idea is that you can retrain your body to improve balance by improving muscle memory. Patients do a series of exercises that exaggerate the movement of the spine so that vertebrae naturally realign. The treatment is similar to using a therapy ball.

Vibration Technique is a massage technique that focuses on creating vibration, usually along the spine. The technique is perfect for releasing muscle tension and to help the patient relax. With the muscles relaxed, spinal adjustments are easier. When used on muscle mass away from the spine, vibration therapy helps increase circulation and serves to activate even the smallest muscle fibers, which help muscle injuries recover faster.

Intersegmental Traction (AKA the Roller Bed) The roller bed is a therapy equipment designed to alleviate tension in the spine. As the rollers move along the spine, they apply a gentle, rhythmic pressure that can stretch and realign the spine, while also improving blood flow to the affected area and stimulating the surrounding muscles and soft tissues.

Electrical stimulation therapy is a physical therapy technique that uses electrical impulses to stimulate the muscles and nerves in the body. It involves attaching small electrodes to the skin and sending a low-level electrical current through the electrodes into the targeted muscle or nerve. This therapy can help to reduce pain, increase blood circulation, and promote healing.

This therapy looks at what nutrients your body has and its deficiencies, and then helps you adjust your diet to make sure that your body has everything it needs to heal. The evaluation focuses on reflex reaction to measure nutritional need. Needle testing also is used to save time. The results allow patients to see which supplements work with their body without needlessly increasing costs.

Techniques such as these are used to complement chiropractic care and enhance its effectiveness.  These techniques, or modalities as they are often referred to, can allow patients to experience a more comprehensive and holistic approach to care, which can lead to faster recovery times and better long-term outcomes.  Dr. Sas works with each patient to provide a more complete and personalized treatment plan for patients which could include treatments such as these.
