Dr. Ching Chen, licensed D.O. and graduate of the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine, got into the medical practice for a somewhat surprising reason: she considers herself accident-prone. So, when considering her life’s path, she was naturally drawn to a field that would give her the ability to heal her own injuries and help others while keeping her clear of falling anvils. Through her current practice, Healing Station, she melds osteopathy’s approach to medicine—incorporating not only the physical aspects of a patient’s health but also the psychological and emotional—with such services as acupuncture, yoga, and nutritional analysis. Her specialties are physical medicine and rehabilitation, helping clients overcome maladies that range from headaches and minor sports injuries to obesity and sciatica. Before beginning any treatment, Dr. Chen sits down with the patient for a consultation, in which she openly communicates about the issue at hand and develops a treatment plan.

At Chiropractor Back Care of NYC, Dr. Andrew Black, a licensed doctor of chiropractic, adjusts spines and manipulates soft tissue to ease pain, stiffness, and other sources of discomfort. He funnels more than 20 years of chiropractic experience into each appointment as he educates patients about posture, body motion, and ergonomics—the same characteristics that earned him appearances as an expert on Fox 5 News. In addition to aligning spines with traditional chiropractic methods and massaging sore backs using myofascial-release techniques, Dr. Black performs laser therapy using state-of-the-art LCT1000 technology, spinal-decompression treatments, and manipulation under anesthesia—MUA—to address the chronic pain that stems from conditions such as sciatica, fibromyalgia, and herniated discs. During MUA, an anesthesiologist administers a gentle sedation before Dr. Black works to break up scar tissue and fibrous adhesions with postural maneuvers, passive stretches, and by asking nicely.
