Dr. Dellaria Education:

Dr. Dellaria‘s education and training consisted of both in school, outside of school and continuing post graduate studies. Dr. Dellaria’s education, skills and knowledge continue to grow each year due to his passion to continue to learn.  He focuses on Holistic Chiropractic Care, Applied Kinesiology and Functional Endocrinology.

Through the use of Applied Kinesiology Dr. Dellaria is able to assess the nervous system through the muscular system.  By using the muscular system as a feedback system we start with a strong muscle and then proceed to stress a part of the body and then retest that strong muscle, if there is a problem with the area of the body being stressed this sends a negative signal from that part of the body to the brain and then to the strong muscle being tested.  This negative signal weakens the muscle being tested temporarily letting the practitioner know there is problem with the area of the body being stressed.  The practitioner then makes a correction or treatment to the area being stressed.  Once the correction has been made the practitioner then stresses the area again and retests the muscle originally tested for any signs of weakness, if the proper treatment was employed the muscle will now test strong, if not the muscle will continue to test weak when this area of the body is stressed and another treatment will need to be applied to the area or perhaps a different treatment.  This is continued until all areas of the body stressed result in a strong muscle being tested.  This is an extremely thorough form of diagnosis and has taken many years to achieve the level of proficiency he has in this technique.  This helps Dr. Dellaria treat conditions he normally would not be able to treat, achieve results faster than he would normally be able to attain and find hidden problems with body that otherwise would not have been found.

The chiropractic adjustments restore the brains communication to the muscles, organs and glands without which very little would be possible in terms of healing and repair.  Through the use of an instrument called the variable pulse adjuster, Dr. Dellaria lightly adjusts the bones of the spine back into correct alignment through a series of light taps the instrument makes.  Dr. Dellaria finds this more effective than manual adjusting of the spine in terms of less stress to the tissues.  Since it requires less force to make the correction of the spine using the instrument he finds patients are typically not very sore after adjustments and they tend to hold their corrections for longer periods of time.  Also, for those patients who are apprehensive to having manual adjustments, they typically have no concerns with getting the instrument adjustment.

Dr. Dellaria uses Functional Endocrinology to address dysfunction of the organs and glands using a functional approach. Dr. Dellaria is trained in functional blood work analysis.  This differs from traditional medical blood work analysis which looks for disease and pathology which requires medical intervention such as medications or emergency treatment.  Such as identifying blood sugar irregularities and correcting them before they lead to diabetes, uncovering dysfunction in the liver before permanent changes have occurred to it, i.e. cirrhosis, locating the beginnings of anemia before it can be detected medically and while it can still be corrected. Functional blood work analysis searches for functional problems with the organs and glands which can lead to disease and pathology.  By addressing these problems in the blood chemistry early on we can most often avoid the need for medication or other emergency care intervention.  Should conditions in the blood chemistry already warrant the need for medical supervision then Dr. Dellaria can work with the medical doctor in supporting the organs and glands to help restore proper function to them through the use of therapeutic grade nutritional supplements.  Once normal function is restored to the organ or gland medication may no longer be needed.

Dr. Dellaria uses a holistic chiropractic approach bringing together all aspects of the body and how they affect one another because they do.  He practices in Alpharetta at Holistic Health Center, P.C.
