Our Chiropractic Services

Spine alignment

Through gentle spine alignment techniques, our practitioners eliminate the pain and inflammation associated with sub-optimal spine and joint movement. Reducing pressure on spinal discs and nerves significantly improves mobility, eliminates pain and allows a return to an active lifestyle. 

Stretching improvement

Stretching is an important component of physical functioning as well as injury recovery. Done properly, stretching will help contribute to a fulling functioning body by reducing muscle tension in the neck, shoulders, back and hips. It is absolutely vital to learn proper stretching technique for your own unique body, whether you are recovering from injury or simply improving overall wellness.  

At MSQW we teach our patients the ideal way for them to stretch, and make sure they know exactly how to practice those stretches at home. We firmly believe in the ongoing education of our patients so that they can continue to work their chiropractic program when they are away from our practitioners.  

Posture improvement

For many of our patients who sit at a desk all day, posture improvement can be an unexpected and hugely beneficial component of our chiropractic care.

Our treatments help guide our patients to improved posture by focusing on not just the area of pain, but look at one’s posture in a 3-dimensional and full body approach. Forward head posture, which is quite common in our practice, is often improved by working on the shoulders, upper torso, core and hips. 

Flexibility and motion work

When you optimize your flexibility, you gain access to movements and stretches that help your body stay safe and work at its greatest potential. Especially after surgery or ailment, when range of motion suffers, our chiropractic care will get your body’s proper movements up and running so you can get back to a healthy and active lifestyle.

Sleep and energy

Though sleep is a fundamental aspect of both physical and mental wellbeing, many New Yorkers suffer from sleep deprivation and associated daytime fatigue. Our chiropractic treatment can help you improve your sleep health, and restore your energy levels to their optimum range.  

Holistic Pain Management

Chiropractic treatment excels at alleviating pain and improving comfort levels without the use of powerful drugs. Whether you are recovering from injury, dealing with everyday aches and soreness or simply want to feel better in your body, our chiropractic care is a safe, natural and effective way to manage pain.

High-Stress Activity Recovery

Proper muscle functioning is at the heart of every physical activity, big or small. Our practitioners are experts in diagnosing and treating problems preventing you from moving as well as you could be. We focus on improving functional range of motion by loosening tight muscles and implementing strengthening techniques, whether you are recovering from injury or simply seeking to improve your physical functioning. 

Our chiropractic team excels at administering techniques designed to help runners, cyclicsts and other active New Yorkers recover from high-intensity activity. 

 

Want to visit? Here’s what your first appointment will look like

A typical first visit with our chiropractic team will last about 30-45 minutes. 

We start with a detailed assessment:

To start, you’ll meet one-on-one with one of our chiropractors for an in-depth assessment. Together, you’ll go over your medical history, current concerns, and most importantly, establish health goals for you to move towards. This process will also include a full posture, mobility, and movement assessment in order to determine the cause of any pain you may have. 

This full-scale analysis allows us to create a completely custom plan aimed at getting you feeling better quickly and safely.

 

Next, we’ll provide your first treatment

After we establish your health goals and assess the state of your body, our chiropractors will make sure all of your questions about your health are answered. We will then provide our first chiropractic adjustment, taking great care to make sure you are comfortable and aware of how each technique fits into the larger picture of your health and movement goals. 

In some cases, this adjustment may not be necessary. 

 

Finally, we make a plan to help you work towards your long term health goals

The goal of the first visit is to understand the way your body moves and see what we can do to improve those movements. The last thing we do is provide you with specific video-based stretches and exercises to help accomplish your health goals. 

These additional assets will help you create change in a short amount of time, putting you on track to reaching your goals.

We adhere to an open dialogue with all our patients and welcome feedback. We never want our patients to feel uncomfortable with their plan— it’s imperative to nurture a solid foundation of communication, which we emphasize at every visit.
