The doctors at Complete Chiropractic relieve everyday aches and painful injuries with a combination of traditional techniques and advanced technology. The battery of equipment allows them to perform spinal traction to space out vertebrae, which can relieve pressure and reduce spasms. In private rooms, massage therapists draw upon the Graston technique. This method, which was developed by athletes, uses steel instruments to heal the fibrosis and inflammation often associated with sports injuries and falling asleep in bumper cars. When they aren't kneading sinews and cracking backs, staffers use acupuncture, kinesio taping, and cold-laser therapy to stimulate nervous systems, stabilize joints, and promote healing.
With more than 20 years of professional chiropractic experience, Dr. Frank J. Mandarino helps ease all kinds of pains and aches at the clinics that bear his name. Backed by a corps of equally dedicated associates, he carefully diagnoses creaky backs and aching joints, employing a wide variety of chiropractic techniques and other holistic treatments to restore bodies to balance. The clinics also specialize in sports-related cases, helping athletes work through injuries sustained during on-field heroics or while reenacting on-field heroics with marble statues.
Since the spine binds the nervous system, it’s poised to inflict damage or healing, depending on its state. Doctor of Chiropractic Carey Skorski and his staff at Bay Ridge Holistic Healthcare PC maintain spinal health, which can then spread throughout the entire body. Instead of relying on medication or invasive procedures, Dr. Skorski naturally realigns the spine with chiropractic therapy techniques, sometimes supplementing treatments with laser therapy or x-rays.
At Hands of Gold Chiropractic, the hands in question belong to licensed chiropractor Jason Peloquin, a graduate of the University of Bridgeport’s College of Chiropractic. At his practice, which was dubbed Best of the Boro in 2011, Dr. Peloquin balances modern chiropractic services such as crackless mechanical adjustments, spinal decompression, and physiotherapy with more all-consuming wellness services such as nutritional coaching and lifestyle advice. He also practices kinesiotaping and the ancient Chinese technique of gua sha body scraping, which can help to speed up the healing of soft tissue injuries or the scratching off of lottery tickets.
Dr. Huml believes that healthy life choices can stave off disease. Over the course of three decades, he has espoused this belief at lectures, in literature, and while selecting bananas at the grocery store. In addition to earning board certification in clinical nutrition, he has immersed himself in the study of Chinese medicine, developing a broad expertise in what makes the body tick. At Brooklyn Integrative Health Care, he and fellow wellness specialists help patients achieve healthier bodies through chiropractic care to improve spinal health, massage therapy to promote muscle health, and science-based nutrition to correct imbalances without drugs.
Taking a holistic approach to therapy, Victory Healing Arts performs a variety of treatments aimed at healing the body from within while educating patients to improve their overall quality of life. Wellness massages employ a gentle touch and manipulation of the muscle's upper layers to trump tension and melt away stress from lengthy office hours and high-stakes karaoke competitions ($40). Like a disquieting sand sculpture of a spine, actual spines may morph and change with time, creating pain, stiffness, and homes for hermit crabs. A chiropractic evaluation takes a look at individual variations with the aim of improving posture and mobility ($75). Alternately, via needle stimulation of meridian zones delineated by ancient Eastern medical practices, acupuncture can ease pain and tension, and restore the body's essential balance ($60).
