A Little Bit About Me
How Treatment Works
Islip Chiropractic treats patients with a customized neuromuscular re-education program that includes treatment on various machines combined with exercises.
We begin by conducting a comprehensive, physical assessment to gather information about the function of the entire spine.
Ongoing assessments are conducted at regular intervals to monitor progress and refine the treatment plan.
Spine Warm-up (Mix)
Before any chiropractic adjustments, the patient should warm up their spine using the following techniques.
The chair sits upon a ball-and-socket joint and flexes in every direction to put the spine through a full range of motion.
Standing Cervical Traction:
This technique is used actively by the patient to achieve gentle, repetitive spinal traction, scientifically proven to relax the ligaments and soft tissues of the spine.
Eckard Flexion Table:
A special motorized table with belts that pulls the scoliotic curves out of the spine, and re-structures the ligaments after they have been relaxed.
My name is Dr. Diana D’Angelo Sepe and have grown up and lived on Long Island for most of my life. From an early age, I have had a passion for helping individuals obtain health and wellness. I grew up in a house with a grandmother that had numerous health ailments. I always wondered if there was a way to prevent a lot of the issues that she had developed and if there was a way to treat what she had more naturally. When I started developing similar health conditions as her in my teenage years, I knew that I had to do something different and chose to build my health from the inside out. For the past 12 years, I have been helping Long Islanders do the same. My passion is in family wellness and also scoliosis care.
I graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College of Florida in 2008. I graduated Ithaca College with a degree in Community Health Education with a concentration in Natural Sciences.
Adjusting The Spine (Fix)
Adjusting instruments enhance the effectiveness of treatment while also reducing the amount of force required to correct the spine.
All adjustments are guided by the information obtained from the patient’s assessments.
Follow up examinations are used to confirm the correction of the curve.
Lock In Spinal Corrections (Set)
After the adjustment is completed, the spine is “set” in its corrected position.
This involves spinal weighting protocols, neuromuscular re-education and whole body vibration.
A custom designed scoliosis exercise and stretching program is also conducted at home two to three times daily.
