Getting to know Dr. Sanio Dizdarevic
Dr. Sanio Dizdarevic grew up in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the middle of the Balkan Civil War. He moved to Germany in 1994 with his parents and younger sister, Arnela, before settling permanently in Dallas in 1998.
As his family settled in Dallas, Dr. Sanio began playing tennis at the age of 7, competing in tournaments as often as he could.
He also discovered a love for soccer. There was one day in particular when he was 13 where he fell on his lower back, dodging a slide tackle. The injury started as a bruise but over the next four years, it was so severe that he could only stand for 15 minutes at a time before the pain would set in. As time went on, his posture got worse and worse.
It wasn’t until his first adjustment in chiropractic school at 22 that he realized what he was experiencing wasn’t normal.
Looking back on it, there was one fateful day on the soccer field that not only sealed his fate as a chiropractor but also gave him that passion and desire to work with children to avoid the pain that he endured for so long.
How many other kids had experienced innocent falls that had led to problems with their backs?
Were parents even aware that a fall could have such a negative impact on their child’s spinal structure?
Not only did he want to help treat these injuries but educate parents on how identify spinal injuries when they occur, prevent them as well as provide overall education as to the importance of a child's overall spinal health and how it relates to their health and wellness.
Dr. Sanio focuses on an adjustment-first mentality. He understands that subluxations (spinal-misalignments) can negatively affect the nervous system bringing about disease in the physiology of an individual. Dr. Sanio specializes in hands-on adjustments with a variety of techniques and instrument adjustors. Once the full spine is adjusted, then Dr. Sanio focuses on extremity adjustments and muscle work as secondary treatments allowing for a more universal structural and physiological benefit to the patients’ overall health.
As an athlete himself, Dr. Sanio Dizdarevic has always been interested in health and wellness. It was that interest that led him to pursue a Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology, the scientific study of human body movement, at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, Texas.
Studying kinesiology had further fueled his passion for health and wellness but he’d yet to decide exactly what to do with that passion.
After graduating, Dr. Sanio wasn’t exactly sure what his next career move would be. Luckily, for him and his future patients, it took him only two days to decide.
A visit to Parker University in Dallas, Texas, he discovered the field of chiropractic. A way to use his knowledge and experience of kinesiology.
Before visiting Parker University, he’d never heard of a chiropractor or the techniques they used.
As he learned about the many benefits of chiropractic treatments, he was completely inspired.
He remembers watching his first adjustment and seeing the relief in the patient’s eyes.
After that day, he never looked back. In December of 2018, Dr. Sanio Dizdarevic received his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker University.
Prior to opening his own practice, Dr. Sanio worked for a family chiropractic clinic. He treated all ages and conditions, but he discovered his true love was working with children, even as young as 8 months old.
