Dr. Robert Klass, DC
My practice is dedicated to the patient with chronic resistant spinal pain. I've been in practice for 28 years and seen thousands of patients in that time either directly treating them or as an elecrtrodiagnostic consultant to other physicians and chiropractors. Over those years, I noticed there was a small group of patients that no matter what therapies were given to them they did not respond to the care. Despite having a diagnosis that was well matched to the treatment protocol, they did not get better when they should have. I wanted to bring hope to these patients and began researching other procedures that may not have been as well known. Almost 10 years ago I came across the technique of Spinal Manipulation Under Anesthesia. The premise was that certain patients that previously did not respond to traditional conservative manual therapies such as those performed by chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists and others would respond to the same techniques if performed under a light sedation. Since being certified to perform the procedure I have performed the procedure on over 2500 patients with very good results. Again, it's not that the treatment is different but that it's performed under sedation. This relaxes all of the tissues that need to be worked on and completely relaxes the patient. In this state of relaxation there is no pain or apprehension. We are able to impact the chronically injured tissue and remodel the painful adesions that have built up in the tissues and restore them to a more mechanically efficient condition thereby reducing pain and improving function.

Care Philosophy

The most important part of the process is proper patient selection. When patients are properly matched to a treatment procedure the likelihood of a good outcome goes up significantly.  This process starts with listening. Our MUA specialist begins by asking several questions and answering others to determine if MUA is a good fit for the patient. Once it has been determined that they are, a consultation with Dr. Klass is made to further understand the details of the case.  Dr. Klass will take a detailed health and previous treatment history and perform an examination as well as look at imaging studies and reports to determine if he thinks MUA is appropriate in this case.  The patient is given all the time they need to ask questions and become comfortable with both Dr. Klass and the procedure.  Education is of primary concern here, only when a patient has a good grasp of the new procedure they are considering can they make a proper informed decision to proceed. Family members are always welcome in the consultation to assist in the decision making process.  For more information about MUA and Dr. Klass please visit our website at klasschiropractic .com
