Is Medical Treatment Enough?
Most medical doctors direct their diagnosis and treatment toward disease, acute infection and serious trauma. However, conventional medicine often doesn't have the answers for the patient with functional illness, in which the person doesn't feel well and has any number of symptoms, but does not have a readily diagnosed disease. Often patients complain of chronic headaches, fatigue or back pain, only to be told they are "as healthy as a horse," or they will "have to live with it" or "it's in their head."
Holistic providers are needed to fill in the gaps left by conventional medicine. They are trained to see health issues along a spectrum from optimal health to disease.
Holistic chiropractic care is not a substitute for medical care.
Dr. Sigman's work complements medical care. It does not take the place of regular medical exams, diagnostic procedures and treatment. Dr. Sigman prefers to provide care in conjunction with the medical community.

TBM, NET & CRA
TBM (Total Body Modification) and NET (Neuro Emotional Technique) are Kinesiologic or muscle testing techniques that xare based in eastern (Acupuncture and Meridian) therapies. This is done without needles. Instead, adjustments are done on the meridians to balance the body and help it to grow healthier. Acupuncture points, that are associated with different organs and glands are held while a muscle is tested. If the test shows weak, an adjustment is done to the paired meridian that parallels the spine and; adjusting the spine at the same time.
TBM focuses on balancing organs and glands while NET works to separate negative emotions from our physical self so that they do not have an adverse reaction on our bodies.
CRA (Contact Reflex Analysis) is similar in it's testing, but focuses on using nutrition to correct problems in the body.
With this combination of techniques and in conjunction with regular Chiropractic adjusting we are able to address a broader range of problems.
These techniques are not perfect and don't always work 100% of the time, but they are highly successful and very non-invasive with little or no side effects.
Providing Comprehensive Health Care for People of All Ages
Dr. Sigman's purpose is to help people of all ages - from infants to seniors - restore and maintain function and balance in their bodies. He takes a comprehensive and integreative approach to health care; helping people remove obstacles - structual, nutritional or energetic - that interfere with health.
This approach emphasizes the power of personal responsibility for health and wellness, in a culture that is often counterproductive to our well-being. Although many of his patients experience rapid resolution of their pain and other symtoms, Dr. Sigman's approach does not offer a "quick-fix." Rather he works in partnership with his patients, providing knowledge and encouraging self-awareness to help them maintain their health.

"I think Dr. Sigman is an excellent chiropractor. He understands the method of treatment for my illness, MS. I've seen Dr. Sigman in addition to my family doctor with great results. After seeing him, the numbness in my fingers and toes went away completely. Anytime I have pain in my back, I just go to him for one or two treatments, at the most, and I'm good again!
"My family and friends go to Dr. Sigman now, too, and they keep going, just like me." Ross M.
"I'd probably be bedridden with my Fibromyalgia if it wasn't for Dr. Sigman. He has helped me so much with my allergies, too. As a doctor, he's very gentle and kings." Sarah M.
"I was suffering from migraines, blurred vision, constant flu-like symptoms, and exhaustion. It became impossible to function normally. I consulted two medical doctors and one specialist, who tested me for many things including MS and lupus. The prescribed everything from antibiotics to anti-depressants.
"When I went to Dr. Sigman, he said, 'We are going to figure out what's wrong with you today?' We talked and he tested me. Within an hour he figured out that I was being chemically poisoned at work because of poor ventilation. The fumes from the beauty shop next door caused a severe allergic reaction. At first I went to Dr. Sigman twice a week. I would walk in with a migraine, and leave thirty minutes later without it. Due to Dr. Sigman's treatments my allergies are improving.
"Dr. Sigman is a compassionate and attentive caregiver. His treatments are unusual, yes, but also gentle, noninvasive, and most important highly effective.
"Dr. Sigman is attentive; he listens and is very gentle and caring. I told other medical doctors the same thing, and they didn't take the time. Dr. Sigman was the answer to my prayers. After ten years, he is still listening when I have a problem. He treats it and it's better!
"Now my husband (a long-haul truck driver_ goes to him and so does my daughter and mother." Barbara M.
"I used to suffer daily with sinus headaches due to congestion caused by allergies. I was so allergic to aspirin and the foods that naturally contain the same compounds that I had gone into anaphylactic shock. After being treated by Dr. Sigman the allergies along with the headaches are gone.
"My daughter would immediately begin to sneeze uncontrollably and her eyes would water if she was even in a home that had a cat. After one treatment with Dr. Sigman she is now able to hold and play with cats without any symptoms." Cheryl K.
