Who can benefit from chiropractic care?
Spinal problems can happen to anyone and cause a variety of symptoms and health conditions. Children, adults and seniors can all benefit from proper spinal alignment and a healthy nervous system.
What is an "adjustment"?
An adjustment is a term for a chiropractic treatment that restores the normal function of a joint (usually the spine) and the nervous system. Spinal manipulation falls under the category of a chiropractic adjustment, but an adjustment is not limited to only spinal manipulation. In our office, we perform several different types of chiropractic adjustments to gently correct problems with the spine, discs, muscles, and nerves.
Why should I see a chiropractor?
Drugs, injections, and surgery are not always the right choice for you and your family. Many times medications simply "cover up" the problem. In addition, medications that are taken inappropriately or for too long, can have very serious side effects.
Chiropractic is different. Our doctors offer a safe alternative for the treatment of many health conditions. By restoring the normal alignment and movement of your spine, we enable your spine, muscles and nerves to work the way they should and allow your body to heal naturally.
Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?
No. By restoring the normal alignment an motion of a joint we are relieving stress, irritation, and pressure that has been building in that area. And, it feels great!
Once I start with chiropractic care do I have to go forever?
Absolutely Not. There are many different reasons people seek our care. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan geared specifically to meet your healthcare needs.
Do you treat pregnant women?
Yes. During pregnancy, stress and pressure can build in the low back. This pressure can cause low back pain and sciatica. Using gentle alignment and massage techniques, our doctors are able to relieve this pressure and reduce or eliminate back pain and sciatica.
If I have had spinal surgery can I still see a chiropractor?
Of course, it is dependent on the person, but in most cases the answer is yes. Our doctors safely and effectively treat individuals with complex spinal conditions including those that have had surgery in the past.
Do I need a referral?
No. Simply call our office and schedule your appointment (973) 564-7676
Do you accept insurance?
Yes. We accept most major medical insurance plans and Medicare.
