DRACUT — The football receiver leaps up to make a spectacular catch. He is pummeled mid-air by the defender who is just doing his job.

Chances are, the receiver will be in Steven Saro’s Chiropractic Health Center, or a similar one, on Monday morning.

Among his patients, Saro, a Dracut chiropractor, treats a number of sports-related injuries in the course of his busy week. He is the team chiropractor for the UMass Lowell River Hawks hockey team, and worked for the former Lowell Lock Monsters.

He was recently named the 2006 Chiropractor of the Year by the Massachusetts Chiropractic Society.
“It’s not something you campaign for,” he said in a modest tone. “I was nominated, in part, for my work as the Legislative chairman and political Director for the MCS. I’ve held that position for 12 years and I’m very proud of the work we’ve been able to do.”

Saro successfully pushed for legislation that provides chiropractic coverage in the state Mass Health system. He was also involved in the passage of this year’s “Healthcare For All” legislation, which provides some level of health care coverage for all Massachusetts residents.”

“It’s gratifying because we are nominated by our peers, but the award is too big for any one person,” he said. “I know firsthand all the hard work my fellow board members do and the sacrifices they make for the advancement of our profession.”

The impact of his legislative work resonated one recent morning when Saro, who lives in Westford, was driving to work.

“I drove past a chiropractic office in Lowell and the sign out front said, ‘We accept Mass Health.’ That was a great feeling,” Saro recounted.

Saro sees himself as an advocate for chiropractic treatment. There was a time, he says, when the mainstream medical profession looked at chiropractic treatment with a jaundiced eye.

But practitioners of chiropractic care work closely with local physicians these days, often referring patients to each other.

“If a patient does not respond to treatment after two or three visits, I have no qualms about referring that person to someone else. It’s all about the patient,” he said. “There is no greater satisfaction than to see someone who was in pain get the relief they have been looking for. When they walk away, they are able to enjoy the things in life that they love. For some, it’s golf. For others, it’s the simple joy of picking up their grandchild.”
