Spinal Manipulation provides a comfortable, more effective way of treating pain associated with spinal dysfunction. Studies show this non-evasive procedure provides patients with a better health end result than most conventional care. We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques such as hand on Diversified techniques, non-twisting light adjustments, manual therapy, Activator Methods and more. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Shao-Hao Cheng has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Dr. Cheng listens to patients and thoroughly discuss conditions and treatment options. He believes that communication, collaboration, and teamwork among patients, primary care physicians and specialists are essential to achieve good health care. Dr. Cheng and his staff are proud to be available and committed to delivering the best chiropractic care in Bellevue WA to every one of their patients.

At Active Spines Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform targeted spine specific, posture related, neck and back exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain and discomfort. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home or while at work to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan.
In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from Dr. Cheng will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor or massage therapist to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. We will go over office ergonomics, proper posture, driving habits, sleeping positions and more. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We are here to empower you to take care of yourself correctly. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Bellevue chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage Therapy is an ancient healing art with scientifically based Therapeutic Effects. Throughout the centuries, the healing powers of massage have been sought to promote relaxation and balance. Gentle kneading and manipulation of the soft tissue affects circulation of blood flow. This increase in blood carries oxygen and nutrition to areas of the body. Toxins are released from dormant tissues and the nervous system is soothed. Like a breath of fresh air your body responds with a new awareness.
