Important COVID-19 Coronavirus Information!

Due to chiropractic doctors being designated as "life sustaining" by Governor Wolf, Synchrony ChiroCare will remain open.

Synchrony ChiroCare is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our patients. We understand that millions of Americans seek care for recovering from an injury or chronic pain, and chiropractic is essential to their recovery.

We want to adjust every patient to help with their health goals. However, those patients who are in wellness or maintenance care with no musculoskeletal complaints are considered elective by the state government, and your appointment will need cancelled at this time. We will only be allowing a minimal number of patients in the office at a time. Please stay in your vehicles until directed to come into the office so that the necessary sanitizing procedures can be implemented.

We also need you to help us. An infected person does not belong in our office at this time. Please use common sense. If you, or someone in your household have a fever, or symptoms such as body aches, cough, or shortness of breath, etc. please call us to reschedule your appointment to a later date.

Finally, we at Synchrony ChiroCare will continue to monitor the situation and take any additional necessary precautions.

Stay Safe and Take Care of Each Other,
Dr. Mike Bennese and the Synchrony ChiroCare team

"What is the reACT™ Personal Trainer?"

"What is the reACT™ Personal Trainer?"

 Instead of boring you with the technical details of what it is, let me simply tell you what it does right from the start: The "reACT" machine improves your reaction time.

Synchrony ChiroCare reACT Personal Trainer

The "reACT" stands for Rapid Eccentric Anaerobic Core Trainer. It is the third piece of the puzzle in the BStrong4Life® system of training for Strength, Balance, Bone Health,and Fall Prevention and we are very excited for its launch.

There are three types of muscular contraction: concentric, isometric and eccentric. Most people are familiar with concentric (muscle shortening under tension) and isometric (muscle tension without any change in length). However, eccentric contractions aren't as well known.

Eccentric contractions happen when the muscle lengthens while at the same time it is under tension. This situation occurs whenever you are absorbing force and decelerating such as:

  • Landing from a jump or in the landing phase of walking/running
  • Walking down stairs
  • Changing direction while running

Our muscles literally act as springs during eccentric contractions. Eccentric training increases a muscle's ability to produce force at a longer length. This is one of the ways eccentric training prevents injury.

The BStrong4Life® System incorporates eccentric, anaerobic core training by utilizing the reACT™ training machine. Synchrony ChiroCare™ patients and BStrong4Life® clients will now have the opportunity to use this third piece in the BStrong4Life system of training.

Originally designed for high-end athletes in sports that require lightning speed reaction time like hockey and baseball, the BStrong4Life® system of training has harnessed this power for common folk like you and me to use. People all the way from a weekend warrior athlete to a 70 year old female with osteoporosis.

How would a 70 year old woman benefit from improved reaction time in daily life? Fall Prevention! Let's say Mrs. Jones trips on the edge of the carpet. The difference in reaction times between a fall ending with a broken hip and a fall where you catch yourself before harm has occurred is measured in microseconds. A quick reaction time engages muscles into action sooner and helps to prevent or mediate debilitating falls in the first place.
