BAC To Health is a family practice and welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds. As part of a holistic health approach, it is important to include the entire family. Dr. Sherman works with many children from newborns to teenagers. He is Webster certified and specializes in working with expectant mothers.
Below is a sampling of the different lifestyle services we offer in our Los Angeles office:
The basic philosophy is that the body will heal itself when the right doors are unlocked through correcting subluxations. Freeing the nervous system without the use of drugs or surgeries enables the body to take command of the healing process and restore you to your full potential.
Applied Kinesiology (AK)
AK is a unique system for evaluating body function by means of muscle tests. This holistic approach addresses a person’s entire triad of health (structure, chemistry, and emotions), rather than just one isolated part.
Learned in advanced educational classes, this specific chiropractic technique facilitates easier and safer deliveries for the mother and baby. Beginning with treatment for the most common complaint, low back pain, women are realizing the additional benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy.
Muscle Testing (MT)
MT reveals which muscles are “on” (facilitated) and which are “off” (inhibited) at any given time. An AK practitioner evaluates how well your muscles are functioning on a deep neurological level.
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Laser therapy produces a process called photobiomodulation. This stimulates healing on a cellular level by getting cells to produce energy (ATP) more rapidly. This, in turn, decreases pain, inflammation and breaks up scar tissue.
Energy is the driving force of the body from the tiniest motion of our cells to the electrical impulses running through our nerves and tissues. Our everyday experiences on the physiological, emotional, and intellectual levels consist of the flow of energy that ultimately determines our ability to function. Dr. Sherman uses a variety of techniques to access this system within you.
Our diagnostic services include:
- Digital X-rays
- Nerve Conduction Velocity Testing
- Musculoskeletal Ultrasound
- Vascular Ultrasound
- Blood Chemistry Testing and Analysis
- Saliva Hormone Testing
- Food Allergy/Sensitivity Testing
- Adrenal Function Testing
- Leaky Gut Testing
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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.
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. Our method follows the 5 laws of health: Diet, Rest, Exercise, Alignment and Mental clarity (DREAM).
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? BAC To Health can help provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide wellness screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
