Lower Back Pain

Many patients enter my office each day with different grades of lower back pain from mild to severe.   Each patient basically says the same thing to me but in their own words.  “Dr Bracco, make my pain go away, make me feel better.”  The truth of the matter is that these patient have been taking medication for inflammation and pain with little to no relief.  They have had X-Rays,  MRI’s, Nerve tests and more.  They have gone from their primary physician to Orthopedic to Neurologist with no help.  In Chiropractic, we have a unique saying that we can hang our hat on.  Structure determines Function.  I read the same reports which describe disc degeneration, arthritic spurring,  bulging discs, herniated discs etc., etc.   I look at the same X-Rays  and MRI’s and yes, I see all that they report but I see more than that.  I analyze the structure of the spine and with that lies Chiropractic’s specialty.  I see a vertebrae turning 2 mm to the right or left, on a angle etc, etc.. Correct the structure and improve the function.  No one, AND I MEAN NO ONE, can correct the structure of the spine with their hands like a Chiropractor. So,  if your tired of treating the symptom and taking something for the pain day in and day out, then I recommend that you make an appointment to see if your spinal structure is causing your pain.

Migraine Headaches- Relief by using a Chiropractor

 

Patient A.M. suffered from severe  migraine headaches everyday for the past three and a half years. The headaches were debilitating, and being a single mom with a young child, life was very difficult. MRI exam of her brain was negative and dark rooms and silence and prescribed drugs became a part of her life.

On her first visit to the office she stated that she takes 300mgs of Topamax and 75mgs of Nortriptilene daily. I examined the patient Chiropractically to find if there was a cause of her headaches. Examination revealed two cervical vertebrae out of the normal alignment. These segments were very painful to touch. Chiropractic care was started and after 5 adjustments the patient said that this was the first time in three and a half years that she went two days without a headache.

After 15 adjustments and 5 weeks later, her M.D. reduced her medication to 100mgs of Topomax and 25mgs of Nortriptilene. I feel confident that she will be off all medication in a short time. As a Chiropractor, what makes my profession so unique is that I don’t treat the symptoms but I look to find a cause of the symptoms, then remove the cause, and then step back and watch the awesomeness within the patient heal themselves.

Patient I.D. entered the office on the first week of December 2010 complaining of severe lower back pain. She rated her pain on a scale of 1-10, (10 being the worst) as a 7 on a good day and a 10 on a bad day. She stated that she lifted a heavy turkey on Thanksgiving and then her pain started. She had prior disc surgery, discectomy. She had numerous positive ortho’s as well as inflammation in the lumbar spine, hypertonicity in the lumbar paraspinals, and a antalgic lean left 2 degrees. She was treated with specific Chiropractic adjustments and 7 days later she has made vast improvement and wants to know when she can return to the gym to exercise.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have been assisting patients as a Hands on Chiropractor for the past 35 years. In that time, I have taken care of children who have grown up and now bring their children in for care. My practice is filled with joy, hope and love. The patients are comfortable and are treated as family and refer their friends and loved ones. I have seen all types of conditions and illness from  back and neck pain, herniated discs, sciatica, migraines, asthma, allergies, digestive abnormalities, numbness, tingling, TMJ, and the list goes on. I take care of people from newborns and pregnant mothers all the way to senior citizens.

I offer specific Chiropractic adjustments to the area of the spinal column which I have determined by examination, palpation and X-Ray, when necessary, to be the cause of your specific condition. With gentle chiropractic care I remove interference and enable your body to perform better and thereby heal itself.

My staff is caring and will go out of their way to make whatever insurance forms that you have as easy as possible to file because we take care of all the paper work. I accept mostly all insurance, No Fault Auto Accidents, Workers Compensation injuries, GHI, Medicare, 1199, as well as many others. If you have any questions call the office and speak with Joyce who is an expert in this field.

My office hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 9am-8pm

Tuesdays 3:30pm-8:30 pm

Thursdays by appointment

Saturdays 10am-1pm,

Emergency care available.

My office is located in Heartland Village, Staten Island nearby the Staten Island Mall.
