If you need to recover from any injury, do what the Rams do, call Dr. Milan Lassiter.”

IMG_0743+(2)NECK AND BACK PAIN

“As a physician, I was reluctant to see a chiropractor, but neither physical therapy nor regular massages had helped to relieve the pain, which was constant and making my life miserable.

I finally went to see Dr. Lassiter after ten years or more of aching neck and upper back pain. We hit on the right combination of techniques that have made a remarkable difference to my everyday living and I am no longer in agony at the end of my workday.

My only regret is that I didn’t come to see him sooner! I am happy to recommend Dr. Lassiter to anyone who wants to relieve musculoskeletal pain and feel good again.”

– MATHIS KIRBY, M.D., Richmond, VA

“In January, before my last season of college baseball, I injured my lower back with a bulging disk. Dr. Lassiter used K-Laser and many other treatments to help me recover in time to play my final season.

I was signed by the Philadelphia Phillies shortly after the season and he is a big part of that, because without him, I would not have been able to play.

I continue to see him when I come home. I sprained my knee this past summer and I was having intense pain in my upper calf. Dr. Lassiter worked on it and my knee and calf have never felt better.

 LOW BACK DISC DECOMPRESSION

 I had seen many doctors for back pain and been told that, although I had herniated discs, the condition was not yet bad enough for surgery.  Physical therapy had yielded only partial and temporary relief.  Chronic pain was limiting or preventing my daily activities and also preventing me from sleeping, even with pain medication.

Spinal decompression changed all of that.  Although I have to admit that I was skeptical at first about the treatment, I could not have been more pleased with the outcome.  The procedure has yielded amazing results for me.  I can shop, do yard-work, and many other things that were impossible for me to do before.

LOW BACK DISC DECOMPRESSION ALONG WITH SOFT-TISSUE TECHNIQUES
Maymont 8 Miler 2

“When I was diagnosed with a herniated disc and told that I should give up running, I was floored. I would continue to run, but the pain was unbearable afterwards. I stopped running and received two epidurals, but the pain returned within a month. I was headed towards surgery, unhappily.

I went to Dr. Lassiter looking for a way to manage the pain, but his mix of decompression and soft-tissue therapies allowed my body to heal and actually repair the damaged disc.With Dr. Lassiter’s work I am back to running and have thrived beyond my previous running ability.”

NECK DISC DECOMPRESSION

After an auto accident, I suffered from severe neck pain. For months it was shooting down my neck and into my shoulder. I heard about non-surgical disc decompression, began treatment, and started to feel results soon after getting under care.

I’ve noticed results after each treatment.  I am now at a level of no pain and feeling fine.This procedure is painless and a great alternative to surgery, which I hear is expensive and has a long recovery process.”

ACTIVE RELEASE, GRASTON TECHNIQUE & CHIROPRACTIC FOR AN OLD SPORTS INJURY
IMG_0228-001

“I had severe pain, swelling and numbness in my right arm for 4 years.  Blood work, x-rays, and an MRI were all performed, but nothing showed up.  For 4 years I tried prescription medication, physical therapy, and I saw a number of orthopedists; No one could figure out what was wrong.  

Thankfully I found Dr. Lassiter.  He did Active Release Technique, Graston therapy, Kinesio Taping, and chiropractic adjustments until I was symptom-free.  I have full confidence in Dr. Lassiter and the techniques he uses, so much so that I travel one hour each way from Fredericksburg to see him.”

GRASTON TECHNIQUE, CHIROPRACTIC, AND KINESIO TAPING FOR A SPORTS INJURY
feb18th20122

“I had severely strained my abdominal muscles. It took 6 months before I could lift even small dumbbells for basic exercises.  Then, while 10 weeks out from a bodybuilding competition, I strained my midsection again.  I was sure there wouldn’t be any chance for me to compete.

Dr. Lassiter immediately started me on Chiropractic adjustments and Graston Technique, and he used kinesio tape to support the area between treatments. Within two weeks I was back into the gym and I was able to train hard up to my contest, which I won!”

SPORTS INJURIES

Shay spitz“I’m a professional soccer player. After suffering a couple of injuries, I was referred to Dr. Lassiter. After the very first visit I noticed a significant improvement.

I have continued seeing Dr. Lassiter to not only rehab and heal my current injuries, but any others that I’ve picked up throughout the season.

My career depends on being physically healthy.  I have the upmost confidence in Dr. Lassiter’s ability to get me physically back to where I need to be in the shortest of time frames.”

LOW BACK DISC DECOMPRESSION 

I could not sit for more than 8 minutes at a time. I was on three different pain medications, which dulled my senses. My life had changed because of intolerable pain in my back and down my leg. I had been through 2 epidurals and my Orthopedic Surgeon said surgery was necessary. I was scared and needed an alternative.

I started my regiment of decompression therapy and within a few weeks the pain was gone; so were the medications.  I want to strongly recommend Dr. Lassiter and his disc decompression therapy to anyone suffering from back pain.  I feel like it has saved my life and I will forever be grateful.

LOW BACK DISC DECOMPRESSION 

Over 20 years ago I was in a serious auto accident that resulted in 2 lower back surgeries. My life had gone from being extremely athletic to having very little activity and being very depressed. After my second surgery failed, I decided to get under decompression therapy rather than having a third surgery.

After undergoing non-surgical disc decompression, my physical condition is the best it has been since before my accident.  I strongly recommend Dr. Lassiter’s program to anyone with chronic back pain who may be thinking of having surgery.”

ACTIVE RELEASE, GRASTON AND CHIROPRACTIC FOR A SPORTS INJURY

CliffRunner“Dr. Lassiter is the specialist to see in Richmond for sports Injury rehabilitation. 

I suffered a freak injury, leaving me with a significant amount of scar tissue in my right leg and quite a bit of pain during almost every run.  I eventually just got tired of not getting any better.

After researching the best chiropractors and physical therapists in the area, I gave Dr. Lassiter a call.  Through his rehabilitation plan, including Graston Technique, Active Release Technique, KinesioTaping, and Chiropractic care, I was able to achieve my fitness goals for the year without incurring any setbacks.”

GRASTON TECHNIQUE & CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR A SPORTS INJURY

“Three years ago I was doing overhead shoulder presses and felt a “pop” in my shoulder, leaving me with a lot of pain and restricted movement.  Both an orthopedist and sports MD took x-rays and did a lot of tests, but found “nothing wrong.”

Immediately upon meeting Dr. Lassiter I was really impressed.  After just 2 sessions, the pain and clicking in my shoulder had diminished exponentially. I was astonished that 2 years of suffering had been diminished in 2 weeks! 

I continue to see Dr. Lassiter to work on the many troubled areas I often acquire from training so hard.”

– JACOB DUNNEBACK

 


 

 LOW BACK DISC DECOMPRESSION ALONG WITH GRASTON THERAPY

“I had run the gamut of treatments for over 20 years, from steroid injections to physical therapy to anti-inflammatory drugs. Several doctors had told me I would just have to learn to live with the pain, but the pain was so bad that I had scheduled to have a fusion by a surgeon. Fortunately, my wife suggested that I see Dr. Lassiter.

To say that I was apprehensive is an understatement, as I had spent thousands of dollars on chiropractic care with very little results.  Long story short, combining the Graston method with the disc decompression therapy changed my life.  I am now pain-free.”

 YELP! REVIEW LEFT ON THE INTERNET

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I have been seeing Dr. Lassiter for about a little over a year now. The work he does is amazing, he is truly a healer.

He does not just crack you and send you on your way. Instead works with you to provide relief from pain, using innovative muscle techniques, top of the line machines and genuine care for his patients.  I have sent friends, family, neighbors and clients to him. I will continue to do so in the future.

GOOGLE REVIEW LEFT ON THE INTERNET

I’ve seen numerous chiropractors over the years, and have gotten more relief from Dr. Lassiter in less than two months than I did with all the rest put together.

I have multiple problem areas, the worst are in my back and hip. I came to Dr. Lassiter determined to somehow get back on an exercise regimen, and he has helped me regain flexibility and reduce pain to the point where I have been able to start working out regularly. 

Dr. Lassiter utilizes therapeutic techniques that many chiros in this area are either underusing or are not yet familiar with. If you have soft tissue problems, this is the man to see. He is also a good listener and is kind and attentive to his patient’s needs and comfort levels. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

TESTIMONIAL LEFT ON THE INTERNET ON MAY 3, 2013

The treatments I received were exactly what I needed to address my injury and the service was exceptional. I would definitely recommend his practice.

Dr. Lassiter was very informative, walking me through every step of the process, from diagnosis, to treatment, and to stretches and maintenance following the final session.

 


 

YELP! REVIEW LEFT ON THE INTERNET

I contacted Dr. Lassiter after I had a nasty fracture in my knee that required surgery and extensive rehab. In addition to the break, I had extensive soft tissue damage that PT was not helping to resolve.

Dr. Lassiter introduced me to the Graston Technique, kinesio taping and active release therapy that made an incredible difference and got me back walking again much faster than my surgeon had originally thought.

Combined with the fact he is a pretty hip dude and great musician, I look forward each time I get to visit his practice and have recommended him to numerous friends and colleagues.

TESTIMONIAL LEFT ON THE INTERNET ON 12/1/2014

“Dr. Lassiter and his team are the best. I needed some soft tissue work done after a sports injury that would not heal after a month. Dr L took the time to listen and clearly explain his diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We went with Graston and Active Release– both helped immediately. Also, he spends a good amount of time actually doing much of the work himself. Thanks Dr Lassiter!”
