Sutanto Chiropractic

Dr. John Sutanto’s Blackbelt Healing, or Sutanto Technique®

Fibromyalgia specialist and Pain Management expert Dr. John Sutanto provides manual physical therapy to patients suffering from chronic pain.

His unique approach to care utilizes an old Japanese tradition called Blackbelt Healing (Ijutsu), or the Sutanto Technique®.  

Once considered a high art practiced in Japan for more than 1,200 years, this spinal manipulation was performed only by advanced practitioners of martial arts and medical doctors.

The Sutanto Technique® is a unique blend of manual physical therapy techniques, including soft tissue/manual manipulation and a very specific spinal mobilization manipulation technique for pain relief from all types of ailments such as Fibromyalgia and chronic, acute, traumatic, post-surgical, and cancer pain.

Help for Fibromyalgia Pain Relief

As a Judo and Karate practitioner, Dr. Sutanto utilizes this technique in his practice to help patients relieve pain associated with Fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions, and restore their health. After suffering hip injuries and lower back pain in a judo competition in the 1970s, Dr. John Sutanto discovered chiropractic care as a highly effective form of treatment and pain management. He then dedicated his life to help others find pain relief.

With more than 25 years of healing experience as a pain management doctor and Fibromyalgia specialist, Dr. John Sutanto emphasizes correcting spinal misalignment and wellness by utilizing the most effective chiropractic techniques.

Fibromyalgia Recovery and Pain Management

Dr. Sutanto keenly encourages his Fibromyalgia patients to be active in their recovery and disease management efforts. Through education and active patient participation, his patients tend to heal more quickly and completely, lessening their chance of re-injury or reoccurrence.

Dr. Sutanto earned his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition at Park College in Parkville, Missouri, and his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 1988 from the Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri.

If you are suffering from Fibromyalgia or chronic pain, Dr. Sutanto and the Sutanto Technique® can help you live a normal life again. Dr. John Sutanto has been successfully using this manual physical therapy technique with his patients for more than 20 years.

Chronic pain costs an estimated $50 billion every year in the U.S., making it the country's most expensive health problem. And an estimated 7 million people are partially or completely disabled by back pain. Don’t let this be you!

He works out any painful knots and makes my headaches disappear. I no longer have constant pain. Dr. Sutanto is truly a healer. I'm glad I found him.”         -- Matt
