Dr. Iannace is one of only a few doctors in the Lowcountry using the FDA approved Pulstar Function Recording and Analysis System (FRAS). Dr. Iannace is also one of only a few doctors in the state that was trained by the late Dr. Walter Vernon Pierce in the  "Pierce Results System"  of chiropractic analysis and spinal correction.

Technology has changed every profession over the years including Chiropractic. Dr. Iannace has kept up with the changes by employing the latest in Chiropractic technology.  The "Pierce Results System" is a combination of techniques forming a system of scientific investigation of the spine. After obtaining this information, a specific Chiropractic adjustment is made to the spine either by hand or by utilizing the "Pulstar FRAS" computerized adjusting instrument. This computer controlled instrument will test the vertebral range of motion, plot a graph, then adjust the vertebra back to it's proper position. It will stop when the correction is made on it's original analysis. This method is very specific and leaves no doubt the correction has been made. The instrument adjustment is low force and is designed for every age group.
