Doctors of chiropractic Michael Cocilovo and Gilbert Rodriguez believe pain relief and healthful eating habits lead to an improved lifestyle. To that end, the two graduates of New York Chiropractic College schedule chiropractic adjustments and nutritional counseling at New City Chiropractic Center. Each doctor plies his trade with his own specialty: Dr. Cocilovo is a certified Sports Team Physician and Manipulation Under Anesthesia practitioner with more than 25 years of experience and Dr. Rodriguez is a board-certified chiropractor and physiotherapist. Together, the pair strives to root out chronic pain, so that no one has to see them again?a paradox elsewhere only pursued by aspiring ghosts and elite hide-and-seek champions.
When Brett Caminez was still in high school, a skiing injury felt like an unfortunate introduction to chiropractic care. Luckily, chiropractic techniques essentially healed what could have been a roadblock to his athletic pursuits, and the experience made a lasting impression on him. These days, Doctor of Chiropractic Caminez treats patients at Caminez Chiropractic. He combines the technology of EMG scans and x-rays with holistic know-how, correcting issues such as sore muscles or postures thrown askew by mismatched stilts. When he's not performing adjustments, he still likes to strap on skis and take to the hills.
The SpineSix machine at Montvale Health Associates looks a bit like a roller coaster simulator. But in fact, this reclining chair is a physical therapy tool with parts that slowly and gently move the spine in a figure eight pattern to alleviate back pain. It also serves as a prime example of how high-tech and specialized the center's treatments can be. Their arsenal of wellness equipment, which ranges from chiropractic implements like this one to surgical lasers, is an impressive one.
Of course, all that technology relies on human expertise. The staff here is a melting pot of specialists trained in a variety of disciplines including pain relief, spine care, physical therapy, and orthopedic and sports medicine. Their services branch into more and more specific subcategories under those headings.
Regardless of their ailment, every patient sees Dr. Rick Lambert to start.

Each specialist's approach is always personalized, and integrative more often than not, combining therapies such as massage and acupuncture with medical treatments.
