Doctor of Chiropractic Stacy Cohen founded First State Health & Wellness shortly after he received his degree from New York Chiropractic College in 1984. Since then, his center has expanded to six locations and welcomed aboard 12 other chiropractic physicians.

Each location features traditional adjustment techniques and Activator tools that rapidly and gently prod trouble spots. A few locations feature specialty techniques such as the Newark location's high-tech subluxation scanning and the Wilmington location's adjustable Thompson Terminal Point table made up of several different cushions that help it morph into an even more therapeutic surface: a ping-pong table.

Dr. Cohen and his staff complement their chiropractic touch with acupuncture, massage, and nutritional counseling services, which are overseen by the center's own licensed acupuncturists and certified massage therapists. Together, the team's collective efforts have been awarded The News Journal's Reader's Choice Award for Best Chiropractic Office in 2010, 2011, and 2012, as well as the BBB's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2003 and 2009.

Drs. Richard McKay and Shaun Rinow were both introduced to chiropractic medicine by incidents in their own lives. Dr. McKay’s son was born with his feet twisted inward. While working as a deliveryman, Dr. Rinow threw his back out lifting a heavy box. Fortunately, both doctors were able to find help in a combination of manual chiropractic adjustments and at-home exercises.

Since teaming up in 1986, the duo has worked to give their patients the same healing benefits they experienced firsthand. They hunt down biomechanical problems or misalignments in the spine, locating disruptive discs and replacing them with smooth vinyl records. Through precise manual pressures, they can nudge discs into healthier positions and thereby relieve chronic issues such as back pain, headaches, and joint stiffness.
