PATIENT REVIEWS/ BRACCO CHIROPRACTIC CENTER

a month ago
I have been going to Dr. Bracco for so many years now. The first time I went to him was because I hurt my neck and back from washing my hair. He opened the office on a day that they were closed just for me. He truly cares about you and how you feel. The adjustments helped me so much. He creates a plan for you to get better and feel the difference. It is refreshing knowing someone truly cares about you. I recommend him 100%. I have referred all my friends and coworkers to go to him. There is no better Chiropractor out there! He is amazing!

I admit I was skeptical about getting help with my sudden onset of helplessness as I tried to literally walk at a normal pace. My legs weren’t responding.I am astounded at the results achieved by the skillful manipulation of Dr. Bracco. He has restored my ability to keep up with my friends at a brisk pace. To say I look forward to the adjustments is an understatement. Most highly recommended.

I suffered from back pain for 20+ years, had tried other chiropractors in the past with little relief. I was referred to Dr Bracco by a friend and he has changed my life! I’m finally relieved from the constant back pain I suffered with for 20+ years. I have already recommended everyone I know to him. His office staff is also very excellent, there is never more than a 5 minute wait to see him. Dr Bracco and his staff are quick and extremely efficient. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Bracco.

Shout out to Dr. Bracco, AMAZING. I was experience lower back pain and sensitivity down my leg. Dr. Bracco proposed a series of treatments frequently in the beginning and gradually backing off as I improved. Today I am able to do the activities that i did prior to my problem. Maintenance keeps me limber and able to continue my routines. Thank you Dr. Bracco for helping me to get back to the the things I love to do in life.

What is Chiropractic?

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.  Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.”   The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.

In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventionsto determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriateChiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.

I have been assisting patients as a Hands on Chiropractor for the past 35 years. In that time, I have taken care of children who have grown up and now bring their children in for care. My practice is filled with joy, hope and love. The patients are comfortable and are treated as family and refer their friends and loved ones. I have seen all types of conditions and illness from  back and neck pain, herniated discs, sciatica, migraines, asthma, allergies, digestive abnormalities, numbness, tingling, TMJ, and the list goes on. I take care of people from newborns and pregnant mothers all the way to senior citizens.

I offer specific Chiropractic adjustments to the area of the spinal column which I have determined by examination, palpation and X-Ray, when necessary, to be the cause of your specific condition. With gentle chiropractic care I remove interference and enable your body to perform better and thereby heal itself.

My staff is caring and will go out of their way to make whatever insurance forms that you have as easy as possible to file because we take care of all the paper work. I accept mostly all insurance, No Fault Auto Accidents, Workers Compensation injuries, GHI, Medicare, 1199, as well as many others. If you have any questions call the office and speak with Joyce who is an expert in this field.

Tuesdays 3:30pm-8:30 pm

Thursdays by appointment

Saturdays 10am-1pm,
