DR COLAVITA PHILOSOPHY AND MISSION
Dr. Colavita’s approach to patient care is as unique as each individual patient. By utilizing a number of highly specialized techniques, in many cases he is able to maximize the healing process within a shortened time span. Therefore, in most cases he expects 50 to 100% improvement in symptoms within the first 4 to 6 weeks of his treatment protocol. The success of the treatment is greatly dependant upon following the given instructions. The goal of treatment is not just relief of symptoms but also restoration and maintenance of the proper spinal alignment. Dr. Colavita’s desire is to get patients feeling better and stabile in the healing process as quickly as possible with the fewest number of visits as possible. His treatment protocol varies for each patient and never includes injections, drugs or manipulation (twisting and cracking). Results for the patient are what Dr. Colavita is interested in and he alters his treatment until he achieves the results he expects.
Not everyone is a candidate for Dr. Colavita’s specialized program. Therefore, patients are carefully selected as to ensure the greatest amount of success with treatment. From 2002 to 2006, Dr. Colavita was the largest contributing clinical researcher involved in a groundbreaking study concerning neck pain. He is currently the lead researcher in a study concerning head and neck pain as it relates to the jaw and facial pain. Dr. Colavita is also currently involved in research showing the effectiveness of his AO treatment with headaches and migraines. The reason why Dr. Colavita is so involved in research is because he believes that if you cannot prove what you do, than it’s not worth doing. Therefore, he not only proves it to the suffering patients that seek his treatment, but also to the scientific community through research.
Dr. Colavita spends a significant amount of time with each patient. He listens carefully to what the patient has to say, as the one who knows best about what your feeling is you. Over the last ten years patients from all over the world have sought out Dr. Colavita and have been helped by his protocol. He has treated patients from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. He has two convenient and comfortable office locations in North and South New Jersey.
Dr. Roy Sweat, the developer of the Atlas Orthogonal Program, personally trained
Dr. Colavita in 1997 and 1998 at the Sweat Institute in Atlanta, Georgia. He has continued his learning from Dr. Sweat ever since then, as he has attended or lectured at every biannual advanced conference offered. He also sees patients with Dr. Sweat several times a year. Dr. Colavita has been certified to teach the Atlas Orthogonal Program to students and doctors, and does so in his Southern New Jersey office. He is honored to be an adjunct professor at Palmer College where he teaches students the basics of the highly specialized Atlas Orthogonal Program. According to Dr. Colavita to teach this program to doctors and students, is to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Sweat himself. A greater privilege could not be bestowed.
