* Chiropractic: Your structure determines your function. When structural misalignment persists it can create adverse tensions on muscles, ligaments and even nerves. If left undetected long enough they can significantly speed up the degenerative process that occurs as the result of repetitive stress.
Remember, life is a stress in and of itself and we are constantly under the influence of gravity. Chiropractic seeks to improve your body’s relationship with gravity so that you are better equipped to handle the daily stress that life throws your way. But don’t worry, we have techniques that will ensure a long lasting change so that you can build your health independently.
* Therapeutic Exercise and Rehabilitation: Neuromuscular re-education, if done properly, is the perfect adjunct to your chiropractic care. To often patients wait until they are past the ‘point of no return’ and often times their muscles have become ‘de-conditioned’ and weak.
If you’ve been to a chiropractor before but felt that the benefit only lasted if you kept coming back we know why. Don’t let this simple fix escape you. If your body’s nerves and muscles are properly conditioned to ‘hold’ your adjustment you will enjoy lasting results.
At Forest Hills Chiropractic and Wellness in Queens, NY we compliment the adjustment (when needed) with therapeutic and rehabilitative exercise to create a lasting change.
* Trigger Point Therapy: Feeling tight, tangled and twisted? Often times all your muslces need is a little TLC. Trigger Point Therapy offers a great adjunct to chiropractic care and can often speed up your recovery process by addressing restricted fascia, congested lymph and trigger points that may be delaying your recovery.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia This is a non-invasive process of a series of procedures which utilize specific stretches and manipulations for conditions not limited to neck pain, back pain, joint pain, muscle spasm and long term pain syndrome. It is performed in a hospital or surgical care facility by licensed physicians.
These movements are performed to break up scar tissue in and around the joint, to decrease chronic muscle spasm, lengthen contracted muscles, ligaments and tendons as well as to decrease pain.
Patients are considered for Manipulation Under Anesthesia when they do not respond as expected to conventional care including physical therapy, chiropractic therapy, epidural injections, steroid injections and sometimes back surgery.
Anesthesia allows increased spinal movement by shutting down the muscle spasm and sedating the nerves to allow the stretching of contracted soft tissue.
I have used this therapy successfully with patients who have had severe pain issues and they were not responding to other forms of therapy.
This therapy has helped bulging discs, whiplash pain and even failed back surgery.
