At Family Chiropractic & Occupational Health Services, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Macomb office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "
state of the art" chiropractic techniques. (i.e. applied kinesiology and spinal decompression / flexion distraction) Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Gary Sash has ye
ars of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Through the use of kinesio tape improves muscle timing, enhances joint stability and restores normal muscular activation. This decreases repetitive strain on muscles, staves off muscle fatigue and reduces muscle cramping.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Nutritional Counseling/Nutritional Response Testing
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Gary Sash can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs through nutritional response testing.
Nutritional Response Testing is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body regulate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body. Each Nutrition Response Testing reflex represents a specific organ, tissue, or function, and indicates the effect that energy, or the lack of energy, is having on the body. By testing the Nutrition Response Testing reflexes, we have a system of monitoring your body at each visit that has proven to be extremely accurate clinically, and that helps us identify exactly what the body needs and how well we are meeting that need.
Clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and when we work out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have accomplished the most important first step correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving your health. we use " Designed Clinical Nutrition" to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.
Designed Clinical Nutrition is not 'over-the-counter' vitamins. Over-the-counter vitamins are pharmaceutically engineered chemical fractions of vitamin structures reproduced in a laboratory. They are not "whole food." "Designed Clinical Nutrition" is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).
It is whole food in a tablet, capsule or powder, concentrated in a vacuum, cold-process system that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as the Creator intended. These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing reflexes that were found on your individual Nutrition Response Testing analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.
Low Level Laser Therapy/Oxygen Therapy
Low level laser therapy supplies energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of light. When low level laser therapy light waves penetrate deeply into the skin, they optimize the immune responses of our blood. This has both anti-inflammatory & immune stimulating effects. Many acute & chronic conditions can be improved with laser use, including: Arthritis/Back Pain/ Carpal Tunnel Syn./Fibromyalgia/ Heel Spurs/Migraines/TMJ Pain & Dysfunction/Trigger Points/Swelling/Shoulder Pain/Knee Pain/ & many more.
Low level laser therapy is a painless, sterile noninvasive, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of pain syndromes, injuries, wounds, fractures, neurological conditions and pathologies. Laser therapy can be used any time a patient requests or needs a drug-less procedure for the control

Applied Kinesiology is an alternative medical practice which assumes that people's illnesses are caused by improperly balanced "energy fields" in the body. Problems are diagnosed by "testing" the muscles, each of which is presumed to be connected to different organs, to determine what is wrong. The proposed solution is to apply particular types of muscle massages which are supposed to release blockages and stimulate energy flow, thus returning the patient to good health.
Essential oils have many useful benefits. Some essential oils are used as antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-fungal. Many are used as anti-inflammatory and analgesic to alleviate pain. Still others are used as sedative, calming the mind and body. An additional benefit is that when compared to antibiotics, essential oils are more advantageous because microbes do not develop a resistance to essential oils as they do to antibiotics. For health and healing, therapeutic essential oils must be raw, pure, unaltered and genuine. Choosing which essential oil or which nutritional product can be very confusing when there are literally hundreds or thousands to choose from. It also takes a lot of time to educate oneself to know which essential oil or nutrition is needed to achieve a desired effect. Our staff is working hard to keep it simple. It is not in our plan to offer an overwhelming number of oils, but to offer the ones that we have found to be the most effective.
