Dr. Michael Rogers, a Long Island native, has been tending to the spines of Flushing with chiropractic care for the past 14 years. During exams and adjustments, he helps to isolate vertebral subluxations, which occur when vertebrae shift into an abnormal position and put pressure on the spinal nerves. Dr. Rogers uses his expertise to realign the spinal column so that the brain can resume sending signals to the body, reminding the stomach that it isn’t a dog.
Chiropractic Rehabilitation targets aches and pains with a quintet of healing techniques. Wayward vertebrae are lassoed into place during chiropractic spinal adjustments, and massage therapists, like angst-ridden pizza chefs, work to knead away the pain. Other staff members specialize in physical therapy, medicine, and acupuncture.
Dr. Jacobs and Dr. Russo of Care Chiropractic believe that prevention is the best medicine. But in order to help patients maintain their health, they must first alleviate any existing pains. They work to erase aches and restore mobility through noninvasive methods, drawing on therapies including massage, chiropractic adjustments, and electric stimulation to help backs bend easily and necks swivel like well-oiled office chairs. The doctors specialize in spinal decompression, a non-surgical technique that addresses issues such as herniated discs and post-surgical conditions. By customizing treatment plans to each client's concerns, the specialists can decrease discomfort and focus on preventing injuries in the future.
Dr. Alan Siegel and Dr. Julie Syat have been straightening the spines of their clients from newborns to senior citizens for 15 years, specializing in various types of care including the treatment of pregnant women. Their chiropractic techniques aim to alleviate headaches, neck pain, and injuries caused from sports such as football or speed knitting. They also employ technology such as electric muscle stimulation and ultrasound therapy to increase blood flow and reduce inflammation.
At Kelian Family Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Jacqueline Kelian uses a multifaceted approach to treat clients' ailments and promote overall well-being. Her chiropractic techniques address conditions ranging from back pain to carpal tunnel syndrome: spinal adjustments correct misalignments, physical therapy fights off chronic pain, and guided stretching dissipates tension. Although Dr. Kelian specializes in musculoskeletal injuries and pediatric care, she and her staff devote equal time to relaxation and holistic health, too. Massages might aim to rebalance the flow of one's inner energy, or chi, which is also the focus during acupuncture sessions. Nutritional advice helps patrons make positive lifestyle changes, while foot scans yield blueprints for custom orthotics that improve posture and ease of movement.
East Hills Chiropractic's Dr. Jason S. Brattner believes that it's his responsibility to diagnose and treat chronic pain. It was this philosophy that led him to voluntarily provide chiropractic care to first responders after 9/11, and that still leads him to attend to the root cause of his patients' aches, whether it be a sprain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, or stress, with natural and holistic chiropractic methods. The Graston Technique, an athlete-developed soft-tissue mobilization, uses steel instruments to detect and break down scar tissue, treating fibrosis and chronic inflammation. His gentler techniques, such as soft-tissue massages and chanting of ancient lullabies, work to assuage tension throughout the body. Before patients leave his office, Dr. Brattner teaches them ergonomic back exercises that they can perform at home.
