At The Healthy Body, we take great pride in providing the finest Chiropractic wellness care and Physical Therapy to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different Chiropractic and Therapy services we offer in our Staten Island 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. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Steven Albert has years of training and experience in spinal adjustments. Every patient/spine is treated as an individual. From new borns to osteoporotic seniors, there is a gentle and safe technique for everyone.
To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Alberts' specific Chiropractic adjustment treatment, we at The Healthy Body also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:
- Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
- Microamperage neural stimulation
- Mechanical traction
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Moist heat therapy
- Paraffin bath
- Work hardening rehabilitation program
- Orthotic Digital Scanner by Foot Levelers
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them 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 by as much as 30-40%. 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? Dr. Steven Albert can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Recent surveys commissioned by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) reveal that more people each year seek massage for health reasons and more physicians are recommending massage to their patients. Ask your doctor about the possible benefits of massage therapy for you.
While massage has many health benefits, if you have an active or chronic medical condition, please consult your doctor before getting a massage.
Massage therapists work in many environments, such as hospitals, physician offices, spas and salons. Some focus exclusively on massage for stress relief and relaxation, while others specialize in pregnancy massage, massage to reduce lymphedema after cancer surgery and massage for pain relief, among other specialties.
