What We Treat

All realignments of the spine and extremities are done very gently. When rebalancing the spine a light force is held for several minutes. This gentle method realigns the spine without pain. This gentle pressure will not hurt a patient when we treat.

Neck Pain

Mid back Pain

Low back Pain

Sciatica

Scoliosis

Arthritis

Sports Injury

We fix muscle and bone misalignments that can cause lack of normal function.

Knee: we do not treat torn ligaments.

Ankle

Foot/Foot Reflexology

Hip: we treat muscle imbalances and misalignments that can cause dysfunction of the ankle, foot, and hip.

More Common Pain

Shoulder/sprains

Tendinitis

Frozen shoulder

Elbow strains/sprains

Carpal Tunnel: We save patients at risk of surgery by gently realigning the bones in the wrist with light touch. Un-pinching the nerve is the same thing done in surgery except they use a knife to achieve the same goal.

Basic Acupuncture

Acid reflux could be caused by a mechanical problem such as the diaphragm and the stomach crowding together causing the stomach spinner to open and acid from the stomach goes into esophagus.

Light massage therapy and acupressure will release the diaphragm and correct the problem.

Acid Reflux

Without needles or pain. Dr. Zuppardo is certified to do basic acupuncture. He does not use needles, but he uses his finger on acupuncture point. He also uses laser pointer to stimulate acupuncture point. This does not hurt. Dr. Zuppardo has 30 years of experience in acupuncture.

Digestive Problems

Constipation/diarrhea

Could be a problem with pinched nerves in lower lumber spine which will not allow colon to function normally. Un-pinching nerves allows body to function normally and correct problems like constipation and diarrhea.

Gas/bloating

Pinched Nerve

Pinched nerves can be quite painful to the sufferer. Nerves get pinched, or compressed, by pressure to an area of the body surrounded by soft tissue like muscles, tendons, bones, or cartilage. Usuually, pinched nerves happen over time from things like repetitive motions or even standing, sitting, or lying in one position for an extended period. Even sleeping in a position that has arms bent at the elbow can sometimes cause a pinched nerve. They can also result from a single incident like a sports injury or auto accident.

Patients with pinched nerves often describe the feeling as burning, tingling, weakness, and numbness. Ingoring the symptoms can worsen the condition over time. If the problem goes on without treatment, the damage can become permanent and be much more difficult to treat without surgery.
