Chiropractic Care

We provide gentle and effective care in our New York City practices,  utilizing state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.

Active Release Techniques® (A.R.T.)

A.R.T. is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system/movement-based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnelsyndrome, shin splints,Active Release Technique NYCshoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with A.R.T. These conditions all have one important thing in common – they are often a result of overused muscles.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective alternative to invasive and costly back procedures. Decompression therapy can be performed on the neck or lower back regions, depending on the patient’s individual needs. Research has demonstrated that long-term compression of the vertebral discs, spinal joints and nerves may lead to spinal and/or degenerative disc disease. Through a gentle form of advanced traction, spinal decompression therapy may help reduce pressure on the discs between the vertebrae of the spine that may be bulged and herniated due to long-term spinal mechanical problems.

Graston Technique®

Graston Technique® is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The Technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Optojump for Athletic Performance (Race and Game Prep)

The Optojump system is an innovative system of analysis and measurement that brings a new philosophy of assessment and optimization of performance to the world of competitive sport. It is designed for the development of a specific and customized training program for the athlete, based exclusively on precise objective data.

Corrective Exercises

In addition to a hands-on approach to healing, we utilize specific exercises to help re-condition muscles that may need rehabilitation to achieve complete recovery. After a patient sustains an injury, whether it be an acute trauma or a repetitive overuse injury, it is essential that strength be restored to the affected area. Each patient that presents to our office for care is given a specific regimen of exercises in order to achieve maximum results.

Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should avoid or perform differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. In particular, we find that ergonomic advice can help facilitate our patient’s recovery, by helping them to avoid re-injuring areas through poor postural habits at home and work. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle, full of the activities they enjoy most. We provide our patients with the most recent information regarding health and wellness through our blog.
