Chiropractic  -  How We Are Different

In today’s insurance environment, reimbursements for chiropractic is dwindling. You may have noticed shorter and shorter visit times (5 to 12 minutes) or more work being done by the assistant than the doctor. Dr. Harasha is unable to perform his style of chiropractic in that short of a time frame and he also supervises his assistants more closely so you are sure to get adequate time and doctor experience during your visit. All our visits are 20 to 30 minutes long (60 minutes for new patient visits).

Dr. Harasha uses primarily Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT©) which is an advanced practice chiropractic technique with some similarities to Osteopathic techniques. It involves carefully reading indicators on the body to guide the doctor to what is needed and a clear plan with defined end points and goals. His adjusting is also much gentler than most chiropractic techniques using gentle rhythmic motions, instruments and blocks that patients lie on to perform the adjustment. He rarely ‘twists and cracks’ your neck or back (unless you want him to).

Dr. Harasha's original specialty is chiropractic. The beauty of chiropractic is the belief that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, and one great thing we can do is to remove any interference blocking those abilities. Chiropractors believe the Spine and Nervous System are foundational systems and a freely moveable spine with balanced nervous system function are key.

Most chiropractors choose to specialize in one or several techniques for diagnosing and treating the spine. Dr. Harasha uses a combination of:

  • Sacro-Occipital-Technique (SOT) - an advanced system of analysis and gentle adjusting using blocks and/or hands

  • Logan Basic - a gentle technique used to balance the sacrum (taught at Logan University in Chesterfield)

  • Diversified adjusting - a hands on technique for adjusting the spine and extremities

  • Torque Release and Integrator adjusting - a system of analysis and adjusting with an instrument (gentle)

  • Soft tissue modalities - muscles and fascia affect the spine and need to be addressed

By utilizing this combination of spinal analysis and adjusting techniques, Dr. Harasha is able to assess/diagnose your spine and adjust you in the most gentle and effective method possible.
