As a world traveler and seasoned surfer, skier, and mountain biker, Dr. Sam Vella does what it takes to keep his body in healthy, functioning order and helps other outdoorsy types do the same. As the chiropractor behind Vella Chiropractic, he treats conditions ranging from osteoarthritis to sciatica so that his patients are left healthy and ready to scale mountains, paddle across lakes, and fight the sun back beneath the horizon every night. Hands-on adjusting, spinal decompression, cold laser therapy, and light force chiropractic are just a few of the techniques he uses to help patients find relief, and he can even treat expectant mothers with the Webster technique?a method of helping breech babies to turn naturally.
