I Am Sleeping Great For The First Time in Years!
Vickie F.
I was first interested in chiropractic care because of constant pain in both of my hips and knees.  I had been experiencing this pain for about two years and was beginning to think I would just have to learn to live with it.  I was very tired all the time and was always in pain.  When I would get home after a day at work I felt as if I needed to lay down and rest my legs. I couldn’t sleep well at night because I couldn’t lie on either side without pain.  I was tired all the time because I never got any good sleep.
My past experience with chiropractic was a negative one, so I was very skeptical about starting adjustments.  I had many cortisone injections in both my hips and my knees.  I found that they only worked as a band-aid until the next injection and didn’t address the cause of my pain.
I saw Dr. Craig do a presentation about chiropractic at the Clarkstown Senior Center.  After talking to him about it, I reluctantly decided to give chiropractic another try.  I am so glad that I did!  Since beginning care here at New Life Chiropractic my hips are much better and I do not see any cortisone in my future at this time.  I am able to sleep better and wake up in the morning ready for a new day!  I used to wake up just as tired as when I went to sleep.  I am now able to do so much more.  I can go out after a workday.  I have a happier body and therefore a happier attitude and life!  The best part is that my husband and daughter started care here too, and we really are one happy, well-adjusted family!  Everyone in the office is wonderful.  They make me feel so comfortable and happy all time! It is a very relaxing atmosphere and I look forward to my adjustments!

GOODBYE MIGRANE MEDICATION!
Charlene and Ralph D.

 When I first started care here I was experiencing terrible neck pain and very frequent migraine headaches.  I was in constant pain and had to literally hold my neck and massage it just to get through the day.  It felt as if I couldn’t hold my own head up!  I was grouchy and irritable and it really affected my whole life.  I took so much Advil that I got a stomach ulcer and I was also taking injectable migraine medication very frequently. This was no way to live!
I had been to a few chiropractors in my life starting from when I was a child and had had mainly good experiences.  I once had a rough neck adjustment, so I was reluctant to give it another try.  When my neighbor Vickie told me about Dr. Chrissy and how gentle her adjustments were I thought I would give it one more chance.  Since I have been getting adjusted regularly, I have far less frequent headaches and neck pain.  I am much more aware of taking care of my body now.  I felt as if I was in a rut before and now I am able to be more active.  Chiropractic keeps me young!
The best part of it all is that when I went to listen to the “Human Potential Program” I brought my husband Ralph and now he has been getting adjusted as well.  I never thought he would try it, but I am so glad he did!  He didn’t really have any symptoms when he started but he is now standing taller and Dr. Chrissy even got him to move the wallet that he carried in his back pocket to his front pocket!
I feel like we are family here and that Dr. Chrissy and Dr. Craig really care about us!  The office is a warm and happy place to be and it is the best chiropractic care I have ever received!

Healed From Chronic Back Pain
Maureen L.

I can’t believe how far I have come in such a short period of time! I suffered from chronic back pain for over 10 years with little to no relief.  At times it got so bad that I would walk crooked and sleep with a heating pad. The only thing that would help was Advil, but I did not want to be taking it every day for the rest of my life. Not knowing where else to turn, I decided to give Chiropractic a try after being referred by my Yoga instructor, Stephanie. I was very hesitant about getting “cracked”, but Dr Craig assured me that I was in good hands…and boy was he right!

I am doing so much better since I committed to care. I have much less pain, my posture has improved and my scans are near perfect.  Everyone here is wonderful and helpful and are very committed to better health naturally.  I have been a patient here for a short time, so I know the best is still yet to come.

INSOMNIAC NO MORE
MAGGIE A
I started care with Dr Chrissy because I was suffering from back pain that began affecting me at work.  When it was at its worst I literally could not work through my entire shift without experiencing significant pain.  Anyone who works on their feet knows how frustrating it can be to work through pain. Things had gotten so bad that the pain began interfering with my school work and social life. I have never been to a chiropractor before but decided to give it a try after my mom’s co-worker gave me
Dr. Chrissy’s business card and phone number.
I have only been under care for a short time and have experienced incredible results.  My pain has drastically decreased and, ironically, I have even noticed that my quality of sleep has improved (this is quite a life-changer for someone that has been an insomniac for years!).
Each and every visit I have had…..has been a pleasure!

Chiropractic Success Story
Lelan Takes Flight

You’ve done it! You did what I thought was impossible, and I literally owe you the rest of my life.

I have often bemoaned the fact that I had to give up my martial arts training since getting hurt in 2002;  A fact that has been seriously screwing with my confidence for these last six and a half years. With the exception of those years, I’ve been training in martial arts since I was twelve. It was such a part of my life that not being able to for all this time has felt like some kind of karmic punishment.

Well, today after leaving your office I did some birthday shopping, and as I was driving around, I just FELT strong. I decided that when I got home, I would do a little of the training. I got home, changed, and went out into the yard to do some stretches before I started. While I was stretching, I noticed that the usual tightness and resistance were gone, so I got brave and tried a jumping, spinning back fist. Nothing! No tweaks, not seizing, no warning twinges, nada.  Against my better judgement (being fearful of regressing my treatment and seriously screwing up my weekend), I launched a high front snap kick; Again, nothing. Spinning wheel kick, tornado kick, rising sun kick, butterfly kick, roundhouse, side kick… all the same story.

Now, obviously, I didn’t get everything back 100% (thanks for that, arthritis in the left hip), and after 6 1/2 years of zero training on kicks, my targeting, power, and form aren’t what they used to be, but now I have the opportunity to fix that. I was so excited that when my wife got home, I couldn’t resist giving her a demonstration. I’ve been hurt for almost our entire relationship, and today was the first time she’s ever seen me this stoked (also the first time she’s seen me able to move like that).

With as much as I’d love to be able to take credit, what with my never-say-die approach to living, I can’t. It’s all you and the work you’ve done over just the last FIVE MONTHS! I can never thank you enough for this. I wouldn’t know how to start to express either my gratitude or how liberating the whole thing is for me. All I can say is I’m back! According to every “doctor” that saw me back in the day, I should be using a cane and preparing myself for life in a wheelchair by now. But thanks to you, I can fly again! So, thank you- with every fiber of my being. Good work!

New Life, New Me!
Laura K.
I began care with Dr. Chrissy because I have scoliosis and have been having problems with my spinal alignment.  As a Yoga instructor, alignment is critical for me in doing my job.  Because of this problem, I was experiencing pain in my hip that made it hard to sleep, stand or sit for too long.  I have tried chiropractic care in the past with no results.  I didn’t like the “aggressive” adjustment that I received.  I also didn’t like the lack of explaining as to why long-term care is necessary.
I have known Dr. Chrissy for some time and liked the fact that she uses extremely gentle techniques that aren’t aggressive at all.  Dr. Chrissy also helped me understand that long-term care isn’t for everyone….just for people who want to stay healthy and be their best.
Since starting care I am happy to say that my hip pain has drastically decreased and I have even noticed more mobility in my neck
I can truly say that since I started care, I have
become a much happier person!!
