Spine specialist, Dr. Joseph Pritchett treats a skeptical low back pain patient following an automobile accident.
Dr. Pritchett practices in Baton Rouge, LA in a multi-disciplinary setting. He focuses on treating difficult spine conditions with conservative treatment, such as Cox Technic flexion/distraction spinal decompression manipulation, dry needling, graston technique, myofascial release, and other physical modalities.
Spine specialist, Dr. Chris Osterlitz and his patient, Roger share their stories of a successful outcome of conservative treatment for neck pain in this patient with a previous neck surgery.
In 1990, Chris received his bachelors of science in Human Biology from Plattsburgh State University in Plattsburgh, New York. In 1994, he completed his license for massage therapy and began private practice. In 1995, he received his doctorate in Chiropractic from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. Through the years, Chris has developed a multifaceted approach to evaluating and treating patients. His techniques include Cox spinal decompression, drop table and manual chiropractic for spine and extremities, Graston Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Trigger Point therapy, Myofascial Release/Unwinding, Clinical/Functional Nutrition programs and rehabilitative exercise programs. Chris blends these Chiropractic and soft tissue therapies as each patient requires or requests. He incorporates many of the above techniques with most patients as the treatment plan progresses. Clear communication and respect for the patient's needs and requests are of great importance. Chiropractic adjustments are performed with full awareness of the patient and gentle adjustments are utilized as a first option. Chris is a member of the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Washington State Chiropractic Association and Oregon Chiropractic Association.

"I am so thankful that I made that switch. I have been blessed beyond measure." The office in Plymouth, Michigan is fully equipped with Cox tables and other therapies used for Chiropractic Neurology
Dr. Atiyeh and his wife of 38 years have raised 3 children, 2 of which have served their country in the armed forces. He resides in Grass Lake Mi. where he can fish and enjoy the small town atmosphere.
