If you’re interested in finding a safe, effective, and drug-free way to recover from an injury, manage a chronic condition, or improve your overall health, chiropractic care may be just what you’re looking for. Chiropractic care is a natural, whole-person healthcare approach that can correct or address a wide variety of problems, ranging from sports injuries to chronic lower back pain. At City Chiropractic and Wellness, with a location in Midtown Manhattan, Dr. Max Heller is passionate about helping patients in the New York City area recover from pain and attain optimal health through proper spinal alignment and lifestyle modifications.
Chiropractic care is a natural, hands-on technique that involves the use of gentle and precise spinal adjustments to help correct misalignments and reduce spinal nerve stress. The main goal of this safe and effective type of manual therapy is to address problems in your nervous system, which impacts the health and function of every part of your body.
Your nervous system is rooted in your vertebrae, or spine, which is why even the slightest spinal misalignment can cause you to feel pain or impaired function — either directly at the site or anywhere along the affected nerve path. An impinged nerve in your lower back may cause lower back pain or pain that radiates into your leg, for example, just as a misalignment in your upper back or neck can result in chronic migraines.
Most people seek chiropractic care for the first time to resolve ongoing back, neck, or headache pain. As a natural, holistic healing method, chiropractic care is an ideal alternative to pain relief for patients who want to avoid prescription medication, surgery, or other invasive medical treatments.
Although chiropractors do focus on performing spinal manipulation to make needed structural adjustments, they also strive to empower their patients to play an active role in their own health. That’s because chiropractic medicine takes a whole-person approach to well-being by recognizing that there are a variety of factors that affect your health, including exercise, nutrition, sleep, environment, stress, and genetics.
Chiropractic care can help solve a wide range of problems, including:
It’s not unusual for people to hesitate when it comes to seeking chiropractic care — in fact, many first-time chiropractic patients have already tried traditional treatment methods without success. Chiropractic care is safer and more effective than ever, allowing chiropractors to provide a higher level of expertise and help than they could in the past. As a chiropractor with extensive expertise, years of experience, and a dedication to ongoing education, Dr. Heller always strives to use the most advanced chiropractic techniques to help relieve his patient’s back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other conditions originating from the spine.
