Dr. Hewitt Steinberg has been in practice since 1981 serving the New York region with up to date chiropractic techniques combined with eastern body balancing philosophy to create a treatment that seeks to balance the body as a "whole" unit. Correcting the underlying causes allow for greater well being. Techniques include diversified manual adjusting, sacro-occipital technique (SOT), applied kinesiology, activator and meridian therapy with special attention paid to pedal (foot/arch) imbalances. Chiropractic treatment seeks to correct "misaligned" spinal/pelvic segments causing nerve interference. Relieving this nerve interference allows the body to express as much innate health and well being as possible; thereby aiding in stress reduction and improving immunity to name a few. Dr. Steinberg can be contacted @ Atlantic Nature at 516-568-7788

Question: What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a hands on, alternative medicine discipline that views and treats health through the effect of spinal anatomy on the functioning of the body.
Answer: Chiropractic is a healing art and science which aims to remove interruptions to the flow of nerve transmission. The main pathway for nerve messages to and from the brain which carry sensations, as well as the impulse to move, is the spinal cord. The spinal cord is located inside the vertebral column. Nerves branch out from the spinal cord to traverse and ennervate the entire body. The nerve branches exit the spinal cord via holes on either side of the vertebral column. Each of the 26 bones of the vertebral column interfaces with the one above and below, forming a flexible, moveable joint. Should a vertebra move out of alignment, say from trauma, emotional stress or other happening, it is likely that the nerve signals will be compromised. The chiropractic profession believes that this compromise negatively impacts a person's health.

The word chiropractic is Greek in origin and is translated to mean "done by hand". Two foundational beliefs form the hallmark of the chiropractic profession:

  • The body has a self-healing capacity.
  • The relationship between structure and function affects health.
Because of their belief in the body's innate ability to heal, chiropractors commit their professional practices to performing drugless, surgery-free medicine. (However, in the state of Oregon, chiropractors can become certified to perform minor surgery.) Rather than cut at a health problem, chiropractors use their hands to release the impedement to nerves caused by misaligned spinal bones. This core activity of chiropractic is called the adjustment; the misalignment of spinal bones is called a subluxation.

Many chiropractors utilize physical therapy procedures as compliments to the spinal adjustment. For example you might find:

in a chiropractor's office. A study done at UCLA on 610 patients found the use of these procedures by chiropractors did not significantly contribute to patients' progress and healing.

Although chiropractic enjoys a fair amount of popularity as a form of treatment for back pain, the objective findings of the study showed it to be about as effective as conventional medical care for low back pain. However, the when surveyed, the chiropractic patients reported a greater level of perceived improvement than did the medical patients
