Introduction to Chiropractic

back pain spine

Why chiropractic? Have you ever taken a long look at the function of the nervous system? It is a complex part of your entire body. The nervous system includes the brain, spine, and nerves. The nervous system communicates organ function and controls senses. Without a properly functioning nervous system, your body could miscommunicate messages that cause havoc on your life, resulting in poor brain-body communication.

Your body heals and functions best when the brain and body are communicating properly. Your spine protects your spinal cord and allows normal movement. Physical, chemical and emotional stress create a cascade of causes that lead to nerve stress or interference. Chiropractic adjustments (structural chiropractic) restores this brain-body connection. This restored nerve communication allows our bodies to do what they were designed to do which is function and heal naturally!

Chiropractic Care in Our Staten Island Office

At Staten Island Wellness Care we practice a higher level of chiropractic care in our office, known as Chiropractic BioPhysics®. This method differs from traditional chiropractic in that it's comprehensive and data-driven, resulting in greater success for patients with all types of pain. Chiropractic BioPhysics® combines standard chiropractic adjustments with postural correction methods to produce more permanent results. This approach is corrective care. Our purpose is for you to regain normal spinal biomechanics or close to normal as possible.

Dr. Guagliardo is the only Certified Chiropractic Biophysics chiropractor in Staten Island. He is only one of three Certified CBP doctors in New York City. This cutting-edge approach to the application of spinal biomechanics is a major advantage to your health and pain-free life!

Dr. Guagliardo will work to correct any structural issues in your spine through:

  • Spine and posture adjustments, where we'll begin moving the spine to correct abnormalities in posture
  • Spine and posture stretching to strengthen ligaments and restore balanced posture
  • Spine and posture movement therapy, which involves mirror image® exercises to correct muscular imbalances and improve posture
