Cherry Hill, NJ
I would like to highly recommend Dr. Cassara. His values reflect his firm commitment to health promotion. Dr. Cassara is proactive in disease prevention. He not only treats discomfort and symptoms, but he seeks to find the cause of the problem and fix it. Dr. Cassara's approach certainly is better than traditional NSAIDs and pain relievers that only serve to mask discomfort. Ever since I was a child, I had poor posture and resulting kyphosis. This, plus a painful lower back was the impetus for me to seek out Dr. Cassara. With chrome osteoarthritis in my neck, I had very limited range of motion. I was unable to turn my head to see traffic at an intersection. I suffered extreme neck pain and stiffness along with frequent headaches. These things affected my daily living. In addition, my lower back hurt with pain going down my leg occasionally. Previous x-rays revealed arthritic changes in my spine and bone spurs on my cervical vertebrae. I had been under chiropractic care previously, but my chiropractor had to suddenly leave his practice due to an unforeseen serious medical condition. Dr. Cassara was highly recommended by my previous chiropractor, and his patients were referred to him. When I went to see Dr. Cassara what immediately struck me was the high degree of professionalism in his office. Dr. Cassara does so much more than just adjustments to relieve pain. He periodically evaluates each patient to determine progress. Dr. Cassara uses a scan which indicates areas of the spine which are either normal or inflamed. He then adjusts his treatment plan. Dr. Cassara also gives written information on activities to do at home such as exercising. He offers numerous classes on varied subjects and is always available for questions. Dr. Cassara has an interdisciplinary team to address all aspects of wellness. A certified massage therapist helps to loosen muscles and make the adjustments even more effective. A nutritionist is available providing excellent counsel on nutrition and exploration of the underlying reasons why we choose the foods and eating habits that we do. To help maintain adjustments longer, Dr. Cassara also offers Foot Levelers, which are the most effective orthotics.
