As a native of Indianapolis, IN, Sarita Sharp completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2017 at Sherman College of Chiropractic. While there, she participated in numerous recruitment and outreach activities to help enroll students in their chiropractic journey. Believe it or not, chiropractic was not initially her career goal. Sarita has found that with her athletic interests and willingness to help others, that Chiropractic has truly resonated with her the most.
Dr. Sarita Sharp attended Benedict College of Columbia, South Carolina as a recipient of a full-ride Women’s Golf scholarship and a Presidential Academic scholarship. Benedict College housed the platform of her research experience and her desire to inquire about the unknown. She has participated in a variety of national and international internships, engaged in symposiums, and aided in the development of the research department by opening doors from previous research opportunities.
We at Alpha Health & Wellness aim to put your specific needs first. We are proud to provide a high quality level of customer service, chiropractic experience, and commitment to health and wellness to all our patients. Our goal is to improve your lifestyle by caring for your health through spinal care.
Chiropractic has been a way for Dr. Sarita Sharp to achieve her interests of conservatively improving the functionality of others, alongside her first love of athletes. While working under the direction of Dr. Todd McDougle for several years, she has been groomed to expand her knowledge through questioning and intentional approaches. Understanding the importance of biomechanics, functionality, and purpose is the key to chiropractic success. At Alpha Health & Wellness, we specialize in chiropractic care specifically crafted for the individual is the goal. Many patients experience years of chronic pain and present us with severe degrees of spinal fusions, degeneration, surgically replaced joints, and other chronic conditions. It takes first hand experience to be able to manage such complex case, and we are the ones who can help!
Having the understanding of what the body is physically capable of doing is how we are able to allow for natural expression of the body’s function. Each patient has to be treated as an individual, with individual needs, and approach. Care is crafted with the best interest of the patient as well as a specific intention in mind. Over the years of being engrossed in a learning office, she has had the opportunity to learn how to maneuver some of the most difficult spinal complications. Through numerous types of therapeutic modalities, the body has a chance to enhance its performance based on three key factors: thoughts, traumas, and toxins. Being able to help identify these stressors whether mental or physical is essential to being able to maintain a healthy nervous system, leading to the ultimate expression of the nervous system, giving the patient a healthier, happier, functional life.

Carpal Tunnel Pain Adjusted --No Surgery Required!
I visited Alpha Health & Wellness with the goal of uncovering the root cause of my carpal tunnel pain. Dr. Sarita Sharp pinpointed multiple issues and made the needed adjustments in my neck, shoulders, upper & lower back. The experience was the equivalent of someone literally pushing the reset button on my body resulting in a whole new path to healing through alignment. I am pain free and no surgery was required!

It's only natural to have questions when beginning a new procedure, especially when it comes to your health. Here are a few question that may help ease any budding curiosities that you may have. If not, do not hesitate to reach out to learn more on s specific topic. We are always here to help you!
Q: How does LED Lipo-Therapy work?
A: LED Lipo Therapy works by stimulating fat cells to liquefy the fat contained within the cell. The fat is then absorbed by the lymphatic system and converted to energy. We use LED light Technology where units are strapped directly to the fatty areas which are more resistant to diet and exercise. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller, resulting in a number of inches reduced from the waist, hips and thigh regions. Each area you are working on will require a minimum of 8 sessions for best results. There is no discomfort and it feels very similar to a hot stone message.
Q: How many calories can a single session burn?
A: A single session would mobilize approximately 350 calories; however, tests have shown more.
Q: Do you have to exercise post session?
A: Yes After each 9 min session on the LED bed we will stimulate your Lymphatic system with the use of Whole Body Vibration. This new technology can burn several calories in only 10 min, on normal exercise machines it would take an hour or more to get the same results. Exercise is mandatory for 10 minutes after your LED session, in order to burn the fat that was released as energy, otherwise the fat will relocate.
Q: What if I don’t want to exercise?
A: The fat loss experienced while using the LED Lipo-Light Technology is attributed to the fat being expelled into the lymphatic system, where it is used as an energy source. In order to properly and fully eliminate the fat from your body, you must burn 350 calories after each session. If not, you run the risk of wasting both time and money by having the fat re-distributed elsewhere in your body.
Q: Do you have to follow a food plan?
A: Yes it is crucial to follow a well balanced food plan in order to not only loss inches but to also lose weight. We will work together and design a menu that is easy to follow. You will learn the day-to-day skills to feed your body properly during weight loss and for life-long success. We teach you how to buy and prepare balanced meals so you can manage your weight loss within your lifestyle (and also share delicious meals with your whole family). I also have several local meal prep businesses that love working with us!
Q: How long is each appointment?
A: Each appointment is ~20 min start to finish.
Q: What is involved? What do I have to do?
A: First we start with 9-minutes session using our LED Lipo Therapy which provides significant reductions within the treated areas. You simply relax in a comfortable position while a trained technician places paddles on the target areas you selected. Then lay back, relax, read, or whatever you like. Secondly, we prepare a customized eating plan to follow until your next scheduled visit where we can ensure your accelerated weight loss. Thirdly, we perform a post LED exercise session for 10 min using our vibration plate, this new technology burns over 350 calories during each session.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: No. This is not weight loss surgery! Unlike many other fat removal procedures, LED Lipo Therapy is a pain- free, non-invasive body sculpting system that requires no down time. Everyone finds the experience pleasurable and relaxing.
Q: I have a lot of different places I want to remove excess fat; can I do them all at once?
A: Sorry but for optimal results-No. With the LED Lipo therapy you want to target specific areas, such as belly fat, for your sessions. You will have more effective results this way as we can target the proper lymphatic elimination areas and produce better fat loss results. Once you complete a zone and your series for that area, we can focus on additional zones to reduce excess fat stored within other areas.
Q: Will the fat come back?
A: The fat will not come back on its own. However, as with any fat loss, whether it is through exercise, healthy eating, or any other means of reducing fat stores in your body, you have to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen in order to maintain fat loss.
Q: What are the advantages of LED over invasive processes?
A: There are major advantages against invasive processes; including no pain, instant results against up to 16 weeks recovery for liposuction, possible risk of infections with invasive surgery, price advantages, no damage to the body including fat cells as opposed to total removal of cells, blood vessels, post-operative numbness, etc.
Q: Is LED Lipo- Therapy covered by insurance?
A: No. Lipo-Therapy sessions are considered elective and are not covered by insurance.
Q: What is the absorption rate of the LED Lipo-Therapy?
A: The LED system has a far higher absorption rate as opposed to laser treatment therapy due to the refraction and strength of the beam. Typically, LED absorbs around 70% compared to laser at around 30%.This gives a much higher chance of fat reduction.
Q: How many sessions can be given and when should sessions be stopped? How much rest time between courses of 8 sessions?
A: The standard program is 18 sessions per trouble area, three times per week for 6 weeks. 3 sessions a week allow the blood fatty acid levels to stabilize after each session.
Q: What should be worn to a session?
A: Sessions require pads to be placed directly on the skin. Comfortable clothing such as yoga pants, shorts, and t-shirts are recommended.
Q: Who can use the Lipo-Light?
A: Most people can do LED Lipo-Light session. There are few people who cannot, and we will let you know after a free consultation if you are a candidate.
Q: How long does it take to see results?
A: Results vary depending on the body type, metabolism, and activity level. Results have been seen after the first visit.
Q: What else can be done to enhance results?
A: There are numerous ways to enhance results:
Q: Can I just drop in for appointments?
A: You are more than welcome to call or drop in to book an appointment. Please keep in mind we do not book same day appointments as there are steps that need to be followed prior to your sessions, in order to maximize results.
The three main functions of the spine are to:
The regions of the spine consist of the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacrum. Each vertabre includes:
-intervertebral disc, the cushion. Discs absorb stresses the body incurs during movement and prevents vertebrae from grinding against one another.
- Intervertebral Foramen: the tunnel. The foraminal passageways allow a place for nerve roots to branch out from the spinal canal.
- Facet Joints-the guiders. Facet joints help the spine to bend, twist, and extend in different directions. The facet joints restrict excessive movement
You can have subluxation without having pain, in fact most nerves generally do not feel pain. Symptoms of spinal misalignment do not typically appear until many years after damage has occurred. Sensory nerves (nerves that feel pain) make up only 6% of your nerves. The remaining 94% of your nerves don't feel pain, they deal with body function. This means that by the time you develop a problem like asthma, indigestion or sexual dysfunction, the subluxation has been left untreated for a long time and you should begin chiropractic care immediately.
The takeaway: Just because you don't hurt, doesn't mean you don't need a chiropractor.
The autonomic nerves come from the brain and spine and control the functions of all the organs (heart, lungs, immune system, reproductive organs, senses, etc.). Your spinal column is the protector of this vital part of your nervous system. Abnormal positions of the spine (also called subluxations) interfere with the communication between the brain and the rest of the body.
The primary role of the peripheral nervous system is to connect the central nervous system to the organs, limbs, and skin to allow for complex movements and behaviors.
The somatic system is the part of the peripheral nervous system responsible for carrying sensory and motor information to and from the central nervous system.
The somatic system is responsible for transmitting sensory information as well as for voluntary movement. This system contains two major types of neurons:
· Motor neurons: Also called efferent neurons, motor neurons carry information from the brain and spinal cord to muscle fibers throughout the body. These motor neurons allow us to take physical action in response to stimuli in the environment.
· Sensory neurons: Also called afferent neurons, sensory neurons carry information from the nerves to the central nervous system. It is these sensory neurons that allow us to take in sensory information and send it to the brain and spinal cord.
Anterior head carriage is a common condition where the head is improperly aligned with the neck and shoulders. It is caused by poor posture and repetitively leaning forward for prolonged periods. 3 inches of AHC will make your head weight about 32 pounds. This is the reason why some people feel their head is getting heavy and are suffering from tightness around their neck and shoulders.
If you're suffering from AHC, the following things can happen to you:
