Dr. Farrago of Great South Bay Chiropractic has been practicing his discipline for more than a quarter of a century, believing it to be one of the few medical disciplines that nurture the body along a path of natural healing. To kick-start self-healing powers, Dr. Farrago applies a full spectrum of drug-free chiropractic treatments such as spinal adjustments, heating pads, and soft-tissue manipulation. He combines these traditional techniques with advanced technology, such as the DRX 9000 machine, designed specifically to treat lower-back pain and sciatica. The machine uses a “distraction force” to retune spines and thereby enable them to play the National Anthem by simply lying across a xylophone.

Doctors Bouwhuis and Powell strive to eliminate chronic pain caused by musculoskeletal issues. During consultations, they diagnose concerns such as slipped or bulging discs and incorrect posture, then develop lifelong habit improvements and preventive measures with each client to avoid further aggravation. They then execute an adjustment to alleviate discomfort and improve range of motion. They can also arrange rehabilitative plans consisting of corrective exercises to be performed three days a week, thus continuing their efforts to not only relieve the pain now but keep it from recurring.
