At Village Chiropractic Associates, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our New York City office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. We employ numerous Chiropractic techniques tailored to the individual needs of our patients. We also utilize Spinal Decompression Therapy. This recent medical breakthrough is giving hope to millions of people with severe, chronic low back pain, sciatica and neck pain. Spinal Decompression is a low risk, non-invasive technique, FDA approved for the treatment of bulging disc, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease (DJD), spinal stenosis and pinched nerves. Research indicates this innovative procedure is highly successful for these and other conditions. Spinal Decompression therapy relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intra-discal pressure. This creates a vacuum effect to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieve pressure on the nerves. Spinal Decompression also strengthens the ligament bands that hold the disc material in place to heal & prevent future recurrence. Additionally, we are a Graston technique certified practitioner. Graston technique is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or post-surgical. GT therapy can help you enjoy life again. The unique technique and instruments enable the treatment of scar tissue and fascial restrictions during rehabilitation that allows for faster rehabilitation and with greater success when the goal is restoring range of motion, eliminating pain, and restoring normal function.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Drs. Mazzarelli & Franchino can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
