East Hills Chiropractic's Dr. Jason S. Brattner believes that it's his responsibility to diagnose and treat chronic pain. It was this philosophy that led him to voluntarily provide chiropractic care to first responders after 9/11, and that still leads him to attend to the root cause of his patients' aches, whether it be a sprain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, or stress, with natural and holistic chiropractic methods. The Graston Technique, an athlete-developed soft-tissue mobilization, uses steel instruments to detect and break down scar tissue, treating fibrosis and chronic inflammation. His gentler techniques, such as soft-tissue massages and chanting of ancient lullabies, work to assuage tension throughout the body. Before patients leave his office, Dr. Brattner teaches them ergonomic back exercises that they can perform at home.
