Meet Dr. Jonathan Lazar

Dr. Jonathan Lazar established Lazar Spinal Care in 2008. He wanted to do things differently. He wanted to attract people who were sick and tired of being sick and tired into a place that was different. He believes it is your God-given right to get better (if you have a problem), stay well, and feel alive.

People are used to traveling to Ann Arbor for the best care in the world, so we thought we’d fit right in. The average upper cervical patient in the United States travels 150 miles.

Whether it’s migraines, vertigo, autism, sciatica, lower back pain, or other types of pain, we know you’ve tried everything and are tired of falling through the cracks of the medical system to find relief.

You’ve spent weeks or months trying every drug you can, and have even had conversations about surgery or other invasive treatments to get better.

The problem is, these solutions are designed only to treat the symptoms and not get to the root of your actual problem. You’ve been chasing symptoms and your problem just keeps getting worse which makes you feel frustrated.

Lazar Spinal Care is the only upper cervical chiropractic clinic in Ann Arbor that focuses on finding tailored solutions for our patients. Our chiropractic techniques are gentle and specifically chosen based on your findings and experiences. Find out how we address your pain.

I feel the staff was so welcoming, kind and professional. The video was a very good explanation and visual of what can happen to the spine when out of alignment was helpful.

I have been seen in several different varieties of medical offices. I can honestly say it was very unique. This was the first time I have ever shaken a receptionist hand. The care/speed/basic flow of everything was remarkable, and I am not just saying that because Dr. Lazar is a personal friend.

SoftWave FAQs

  • What results should I expect from SoftWave Therapy?

    If you are a candidate for treatment, SoftWave therapy can provide both immediate and long-lasting results. After one SoftWave session, patients typically experience a 20-50% reduction in pain and improvement in mobility, lasting from a few hours to several days. Some patients require multiple sessions before experiencing improvement.

    To determine if SoftWave is a suitable treatment for you, schedule a $69 New Patient Appointment, where you will receive one SoftWave treatment session, and the provider will assess whether further treatment is appropriate.

    Unlike pain medications and injections, SoftWave treatment seeks to activate the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level to deliver genuine and long-lasting results.

  • What is the SoftWave treatment process like?

    SoftWave is a fast and convenient non-invasive procedure that usually lasts 10-15 minutes, with no downtime required for recovery. First, ultrasound gel is applied, then the SoftWave device is gently placed to deliver shock waves to the injured area. Most patients feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation, while some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. The use of anesthesia or numbing agents is not necessary. Effective communication with the provider during treatment can help identify treatment hotspots and track progress.

    Is SoftWave therapy safe with prescription medication?

    SoftWave therapy can be safely combined with prescription medication in most cases.

    Is SoftWave therapy safe after surgery?

    SoftWave therapy is generally safe after surgery, depending on the type of surgery performed. In fact, it is commonly used to accelerate healing and post-surgical rehabilitation. Some doctors even use SoftWave in the operating room immediately after surgery, to activate the body’s healing process.

    Is SoftWave safe with metal in your body?

    SoftWave therapy is safe for patients with metal in their body, such as pins, plates, or joint replacements.

    Is SoftWave safe with a blood pressure condition?

    Yes, Softwave is generally safe for patients with blood pressure conditions, like high or low blood pressure.

    Who is NOT a candidate for SoftWave therapy?

    SoftWave therapy is not suitable for individuals who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or have cancer. At your first appointment, the provider can further discuss any conditions that would impact your ability to receive therapy.

  • Does SoftWave therapy have side effects?

    Side effects from SoftWave therapy are minimal and non-restrictive. SoftWave does not cause bruising or swelling, although some patients may experience slight redness and soreness that typically subsides within one to two days. While recovery downtime is not usually needed, we recommend avoiding high-impact movements or exercise for the first 24-48 hours.

    SoftWave therapy treats an array of conditions, injuries and symptoms, including:

    • Joint and muscle pain like knee, shoulder, and lower back pain
