Following the lead of licensed acupuncturists Drs. David and Aimee Slossberg, the staff at Slossberg Chiropractic & Wellness eschew symptom-based treatments in favor of a preventive approach that promotes holistic wellness. After greeting each patient with an initial consultation, the chiropractic doctors draw on their comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy to pinpoint issues that arise from playing sports too aggressively or commuting to work via pole vault. They select from a repertoire of techniques headlined by torque release, an innovative treatment that employs gentle adjustments to stabilize the nervous system’s tone. To supplement these chiropractic treatments, the team cares for bodies with multiple massage modalities and detox programs designed to stimulate weight loss and improve general health.
