What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Sherman Oaks chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Chris Tsai can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Sherman Oaks community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 818-538-4580 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Sports Injury and Rehabilitation
Sports participation and recreation is a major part of today’s society which results in many weekend warriors and frequent sports related injuries. Dr Chris specializes in sports injuries and rehabilitation by obtaining his certification in sports chiropractic as well as certification in Rocktape. Dr Chris Chiropractic Care uses multiple researched based instruments including Graston and Bian Stones to help recover from sports injuries. He currently serves as the team chiropractor for both development football and soccer teams.
Chronic pain can also lead to a decrease in sports performance and poor biomechanics which leads to further injuries of other places, here at the
Clinic, we evaluate and rehab not only the injured region, but the root of poor biomechanics of the regions of the body.
Sports Chiropractic is a sub-specialty of chiropractic. As a sports chiropractor, Dr. Tsai has extensive experience in diagnosis of concussions, on-field emergency medicine, and treatment of spinal & extremity conditions.
Cranial Facial Release
Cranial facial release is an advanced endo-nasal “Balloon Assisted” cranial adjusting technique that has been used quite successfully in the treatment of various neurological and structural disorders. It is a specialized technique that was derived from an earlier form of endo-nasal cranial adjusting called Bilateral Nasal Specific (BNS) pioneered by chiropractor Richard Stober in the 1960's and 70's. The objective of CFR technique is to unlock cranial fixations and induce mobility in the cranial system - primarily targeting the sphenoid bone, with the purpose of facilitating normal cranial respiratory motion and normal cranial function.
To understand how CFR works, it is important to realize that the skull is NOT one solid bone. It is made up of 22 individual bones that actually move every time you breathe, but cranial fixations are a common occurrence and often times the root cause of many chronic neurological conditions and recurrent pain syndromes that don’t respond to conventional chiropractic adjusting procedures. Frequent causes of cranial aberrations and sutural fixations are things like head trauma, birth trauma, uneven bite force (TMJ disorder), bruxism, etc.. Relieving Dural Torque is a primary objective of CFR technique, as it plays an intricate role in cranial function and more importantly brain function. This concept was supported by research performed in Russia in the late 1930’s by Dr. A.D. Speransky, M.D., Director of Research at the All Union Institute of Experimental Medicine and author of the book, A Basis for the Theory of Medicine. Through his research, Dr. Speransky determined that “slight mechanical torque on the control centers of the brain, and especially the pituitary-hypothalmus complex caused destructive pathologies throughout the entire body”. This was a 10-year study during which Dr. Speransky was able to identify over 80 specific disorders that he could directly attribute to this “mechanical torque” phenomena. The majority of people who come in for CFR treatment includes breathing disorders, sinusitis, snoring, sleep apnea, deviated septums, migraine headaches, vertigo, facial pain (Trigeminal Neuralgia), facial paralysis (Bell’s Palsy), TMJ disorder, Post-Concussion Syndrome, seizures, neurological disorders, and more. Some of the conditions that this technique can help include, but not
§ Breathing Disorders
§ Sleep apnea
§ TMJ Disorders
§ Nasal Congestion
§ Chronic Fatigue
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
The Graston/FAKTR Technique is essentially a type of therapy that uses instruments to assist in the mobilization of soft tissues of the body. It
is a very popular technique that gives patients a great deal of relief.
The Graston/FAKTR Technique works by breaking down scar tissue and fascia restrictions that are created by trauma to the soft tissues, repetitive
stress, or old injuries. This can be the result of strained muscles or pulled tendons or over use. It also reduces restrictions by elongating connective tissue. This effectively changes the structure of the tissue in order to improve function.
