I have been going to Dr. Bracco for so many years now. The first time I went to him was because I hurt my neck and back from washing my hair. He opened the office on a day that they were closed just for me. He truly cares about you and how you feel. The adjustments helped me so much. He creates a plan for you to get better and feel the difference. It is refreshing knowing someone truly cares about you. I recommend him 100%. I have referred all my friends and coworkers to go to him. There is no better Chiropractor out there! He is amazing!

I admit I was skeptical about getting help with my sudden onset of helplessness as I tried to literally walk at a normal pace. My legs weren’t responding.I am astounded at the results achieved by the skillful manipulation of Dr. Bracco. He has restored my ability to keep up with my friends at a brisk pace. To say I look forward to the adjustments is an understatement. Most highly recommended.

I suffered from back pain for 20+ years, had tried other chiropractors in the past with little relief. I was referred to Dr Bracco by a friend and he has changed my life! I’m finally relieved from the constant back pain I suffered with for 20+ years. I have already recommended everyone I know to him. His office staff is also very excellent, there is never more than a 5 minute wait to see him. Dr Bracco and his staff are quick and extremely efficient. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Bracco.

Shout out to Dr. Bracco, AMAZING. I was experience lower back pain and sensitivity down my leg. Dr. Bracco proposed a series of treatments frequently in the beginning and gradually backing off as I improved. Today I am able to do the activities that i did prior to my problem. Maintenance keeps me limber and able to continue my routines. Thank you Dr. Bracco for helping me to get back to the the things I love to do in life.

Lower back Pain, Numbness in both thighs and hands


Patient FR came into my office in late May 2013 complaining of severe lower back pain with severe numbness in his right upper thigh and a feeling that he described as if his feet were on fire as well as numbness in his hands and a stiff neck. His condition started six months ago and has been getting worse. He stated that he lost his house in Hurricane Sandy and worked 12-15 hours a day for 6 months straight to try and get his home back to normal. He was diagnosed with sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome. After a lengthy spinal analysis and X-Rays of the neck and lower back, I determined that patient FR had suffered a pinched nerve in his neck and in the upper and lower lumbar spine. 12 Chiropractic Adjustments later and patient FR felt no neck stiffness and no lower back pain and no more numbness in his hands. He still had burning in his feet. Patient FR continued with Chiropractic care at a rate of 3 visits per week and occasionally 2 visits per week and he is now almost completely symptom free. Removing the nerve interference’s within the cervical and lumbar spine of patient FR has allowed the patient, FR, to repair and restore himself back to normal.
