Meet Dr. Athanasios Sarris

Making an Impact With Chiropractic

Chiropractor Guilderland, Dr. SarrisAs a freshman attending the La Salle Institute in Troy, Dr. Athanasios was injured while trying out for the baseball team. With a school trip to Spain on the horizon, he knew being unable to walk due to back pain wasn’t acceptable. His mom brought him to her chiropractor, who said that Dr. Athanasios could recover, but on one condition: he had to show up at the office every day for three weeks until his trip.

By the end of the trip, which Dr. Athanasios had been able to go on, he realized that he hadn’t even needed to use the back brace he’d brought with him as a precaution. On the plane ride home, another passenger asked, “What do you want to do with your life?” With certainty, he replied, “I know now that I want to be a chiropractor because of the experience I just had. If I can do that for people, I’d love it.”

A Rich Learning Experience

Dr. Athanasios attended New York Chiropractic College. There, he supplemented his chiropractic education by doing research outside of the classroom about nervous system function, adaptability and our environment. These studies made him into the practitioner he is today. Though his learning experience led to gaining a Doctor of Chiropractic, the single greatest part of attending school was when he met his wife Beth, who lived nearby.

Staying Busy and Involved

They have two sons who have been adjusted since they were minutes old. Beth and Dr. Athanasios have been by each other’s side for years, working together and often having their children in the office with them. When they’re not busy at Pillar, they’re involved in their community, church and youth organizations. Dr. Athanasios is a former ice hockey player who now coaches his children’s teams.

Additionally, he is certified in the Webster Technique, has served on the executive board of the New York Chiropractic Council and is an active member of the Council and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), as well as the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations (ICFO).
