Chiropractic has grown in popularity due to its high patient approval rating, effectiveness and safety. Spinal manipulation combined with physical therapy, which he renders, has been scientifically-proven to be the most effective back pain therapy for conditions not requiring surgery. Chiropractic Neurology is an exclusive sub-specialty within chiropractic which treats many of the same conditions chiropractic treats- neck and low back pain AND head pain, migraine, cluster headaches, Bells Palsy, neurologic disorders such as tingling and numbness in the arms and legs, ADHD and learning disorders.
Chiropractic Neurology requires a rigorous three years of additional training and Board examination in the functions of the brain and nervous system (similar to those which a medical neurologist undergoes) better enable us to diagnosis and treat many conditions such as head pain, migraine, cluster headaches, Bells Palsy, neurologic disorders such as tingling and numbness in the arms and legs.
The Chiropractic educational community recognized the need for expanding its specialized training and in 1979 initiated a three-year post-doctoral course in Clinical Neurology. Dr. Saracino was one of the first five Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologists in Pennsylvania and is currently certified Diplomat of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board.
A Few Words From The Doctor “My approach is to work closely with each individual, taking the time to explain the diagnosis and prognosis for every procedure and ailment, as an informed patient has a much better chance for a fast recovery.”
“The human body has a miraculous ability to protect and heal itself. Injury, stress, bad posture, poor nutrition and disease restrict the motion of the spine and alter normal body functioning. Chiropractic neurological treatments help restore normal motion and function and speed the healing process by reintegrating the nervous system. As a practicing physician of over 25 years, I am constantly amazed at the incredible ability of the body to heal itself.”
