In place of aromatherapy oils, prescription medications, and invasive surgeries, the team of licensed chiropractors and massage therapists at USA Massage & Chiropractic rely on holistic treatment modalities that target the symptoms as well as the underlying causes of chronic pain. The therapists begin by identifying each client's particular needs, pinpointing the locations of everything from knotted muscles to misaligned discs. From there, they recommend a personalized treatment regimen that can incorporate spinal-decompression therapy, chiropractor-directed massages, or any number of pain-alleviating procedures. Regardless of the specific modality, every treatment has the same goal—to help clients return to an unencumbered, pain-free lifestyle.

Dr. Rob Davidowitz observes that the body could live for more than a month without food, but it wouldn't last a second without the continual stream of information flowing from the brain and spinal cord. It's this circuitry of the body—the nervous system—that Dr. Davidowitz helps clients maintain. Working with clients ranging from newborns to the elderly, he gently adjusts misalignments, such as spinal subluxations, that can impede the brain's ability to communicate with the body. Once the body achieves proper alignment, the brain can speak with every part of it.
After suffering through a number of sports-related and vehicular injuries as a child and young adult, Dr. Franklin Gilbert could find little relief from the lingering after-effects. His day-to-day life was punctuated by excruciating migraines, neck pain, and dwindling strength—symptoms he thought he would have to live with forever until a visit to a chiropractor changed his perspective. "Without exaggerating," he claims, "chiropractic care gave me my life back."
Now, Dr. Gilbert and his partner, Dr. Erik Uuksulainen—who dealt with his own high-school sports injury—helm Central Park West Wellness, where they help patients achieve optimum health with chiropractic care in a variety of styles. Though the two often rely on traditional chiropractic methods, they specialize in The Pettibon System, an intensive, long-term chiropractic therapy designed to decrease pain and improve posture. The system works to straighten out spines with adjustments, daily use of weights at home, and mandatory cotillion classes.

A seasoned Bolivian folk dancer, Doctor of Chiropractic Rodrigo A. Imaña is familiar with taking precision steps, and he applies this same fastidious philosophy at his chiropractic office. Before treating patients with his gentle adjustments, he first evaluates the body with computerized nervous-system equipment and x-rays. Once he’s deduced the exact location of the pinched nerve or slipped disk, he eases it back into position and then follows up with posttreatment x-rays.
