Helping You Maintain Your Active Lifestyle
Welcome to Columbia Advanced Chiropractic, LLC, the office of Dr. Allen M. Manison and Dr. Scott Vanina, where quality chiropractic and rehabilitative services are offered in a caring, compassionate, and warm environment.
Please browse through our site and see all the great services that we provide. Whether it be a spinal condition, injury due to trauma, extremity condition,
pre or post surgical rehabilitation, sports-related injury,
gait problem, or other type of musculoskeletal
issue, chances are that Drs. Manison and Vanina have specialized training that can assist with your problem(s). The doctors pride themselves on offering the best chiropractic,
soft tissue, and rehabilitative care possible. Their philosophy is that good patient results can only be achieved when the doctor administering the care has optimal training and spends the necessary time to diagnose the problem and correct it. Individualized care is essential! It is for these reasons that the majority of the patients at Columbia Advanced Chiropractic, LLC are referred from medical doctors and other patients.
As the only practice with two Diplomates of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians® in Maryland, Columbia Advanced Chiropractic, LLC delivers the highest level of chiropractic sports rehabilitative care in the state. High level training and experience matter and our patients are fortunate that Drs. Manison and Vanina have the highest levels of both in the Columbia / Ellicott City / Howard County area.
1. We are evaluating updating the website. Stay tuned as we might have some major changes coming soon.
2. We are excited to have the use of the Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner (Raman Spectrometer) in our office. This scanner allows us to assess dermal caroteniods that are accepted in the medical literature as being a biomarker for your health and nutrition status (click here for one of the studies). It is no longer necessary to litearlly throw money away on supplements that don't absorb and/or could be causing harm (most of them on the market). Unlike Pharmanex, no other supplement company offers an objective criteria to assess the absorption of their products and no other company offers a money-back guarantee. This company was started by PhDs and their product quality is second to none. The scanner tells you the level of your carotenoids (a certain branch of antioxidants of which there are over 600). Dr. Oz calls the scanner 'The Nutritional Lie Detector'. Now you can find out if you are absorbing what you eat and supplement. Low carotenoid levels indicate chronic oxidative stress. This is responsible for a myriad of ailments. Come in and discover your level of oxidative stress so that you can work to get yourself healthier. This is a huge addition to our practice and we're excited to be one of the few healthcare providers in the area to offer this important service. Simply put, there is no better way to go if you value your health and nutritional status. We do not sell supplements, we sell validated health!
3. We are in the process of adding more pages/information to the web site. Our newest page is on the incredible technique of Dry Needling. Please keep an eye open for other changes and additions.
4. Dr. Manison's case study on cervical spine Cox Flexion/Distraction was published. It is in the December 2011 edition of Journal of Chiropractic Medicine (JCM). JCM is one of only two chiropractic medically indexed journals. This is very exciting and is a huge accomplishment for a clinical doctor, as most doctors in practice do not publish. Click HERE to see the abstract for the study! Dr. Manison is going to begin his second case study soon. Stay tuned as it will be on a totally different topic! Dr. Manison will be starting on another case study for publication soon. This one is on a great topic as his approach yields great results compared to a lot of what is in the literature at this time. Stay tuned...as he learned from his first published case study, it takes a long time to get a paper published!
