At Advanced Healing Centers we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Emerson and Fort Lee offices.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr.Elia has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
What Is T.B.M.?
T.B.M. (Total Body Modification) is a technique this is used to find the organ or area of the body that is stressed, determine why it is stressed and correct the problem by restoring balance to the nervous system. In other words, while basic Chiropractic is used to correct the Structure and influene the function, T.B.M. corrects the Functional Physiology
(how the body works) which may, in turn, influence sructure. Both a re essential to optimum health.
In the early days of Chiropratic, the "old time Chiropractic, the "old time Chiropator" was not restricted or confused by "scientific proof" of what they were able to do. These old masters found a problem and corrected it, thereby, building the reputation of Chiropractic with their main philosophy being that the power that made the body, could
correct the body.
T.B.M. has taken that philosophy and explored the possibilities inherent in the human body of self-regeneration. T.B.M has demonstrated that if the right thing is done to the body at the right time and the right way, wonders can happen. By taking the techniques of the old Chiropractic master and combining them with modern technology, T.B.M. has been able to duplicatethe corrections and restoration to helath that the old masters were able to do.
How Does T.B.M. Work?
The nervous system is composed of the Central Nervous System, which runs the voluntary function or movements and the autonomic Nervous System which runs the involuntary functions of the body, such as heart beat, degestion, etc. Each of these systems are further divided into Sensory and Motor Fibres.
The brain is the primary control for both branches of the nervous system. Sensory Fibres carry messages to the brain where they are processed, like a computer, and the brain in turn, tells the body what to do. Research has proved that under sufficient stress, from any reason, the neurones in the brain centers which are controlling the stressed organ or body part essentially depolarize. This is like blowing a fuse on an electric circut. The message gets to the brain but fails to return. The result is that the brain (computer) loses effectiv control over the afflicted organ or body part. This
leaves the organ or body part running out of control.
Using tried and tested reflex points and muscle testing, the T.B.M. practitioner can find the problem. The practitiner will then stimulate a specific area or areas of the spine in a specific manner in an attempt to stimulate the neurones
in the brain to repolarize (fix the fuse) and allow the brain to regain control of the body and guide it back to health. Since a correctly functioning nervous system is a major requirement for health, it follows that T.B.M. can have a parth
to play in almost any problem and uncover and correct the roadblocks to recovery.
At this point in time T.B.M. is able to test and correct most of the known body functions. Through the efforts of and thinking of many innovators within the Chiropractic profession, a body of knowledge and repeatable technical procedures has emerged to crrect what is termed functional physiological malfunctions.
Over the years, scientific data has validated much of what began as a theory. But the results that have been attained have given the impetus, the confidence and the desire to find out more about how the body really works. Research is
an ongoing activity in T.B.M. and each year brings new discoveries.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Elia can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Elia's specific Chiropractic manipulative treatment, he also provides the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Microamperage neural stimulation (Tens Unit)
- Mechanical traction
