In 2002, Doctor of Chiropractic George Gertner founded Upper Cervical Chiropractic of New York to practice a very specific technique. He focuses only on the alignment of the atlas vertebra, or topmost bone of the spine, using a gentle, holistic method called NUCCA. Dr. Gertner and his team are one of only 200 groups around the world to specialize in this unique form of neck adjustment, treating an array of chronic and acute conditions without cracking or karate chopping.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Kobrin draws on 10 years of experience when assuaging spinal-related aches caused by illness, sports injuries, or accidents. To begin, he first assesses spines with an exam and x-rays before developing a treatment plan to correct misalignments. This may include a series of adjustments that build on each other, as well as postural exercises.
Doctor of Chiropractic Gus Sofos realigns crooked spines to help alleviate pain across the body. He aims to quash short-term neck and back pain caused by strenuous physical activity. Other ailments relieved through his services include headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and disk herniation of the neck or back.
Plawski Chiropractic combines the skills of not one specialist, but three: a massage therapist, a physical therapist, and Doctor of Chiropractic Marie Plawski herself, a chiropractor with 17 years of experience. Together with NYS licensed massage therapist John Wyler, their skill sets form a voltron of drug-free health care that addresses the full range of skeletal and soft-tissue problems, from pinched nerves in the spine to sore muscles and torn ligaments.
But the team doesn't just administer medical services. Clients looking to untether tension can relax under warm river rocks with a hot-stone massage or extend their feet into a soothing Japanese foot massage.

The Physical Medicine & Chiropractic Center?s staff aims to alleviate chronic pain and imbue bodies with long-term wellness with services that range from therapeutic massage to nutritional counseling.

Each highly skilled professional plies their healing trade with a focus on improving muscular and immune foundations rather than merely attacking the symptoms of unhealthiness or disease.
