Staten Island Chiropractic Services

Chiropractic involves non-surgical, non-invasive medical procedures that help alleviate problems including neck pain, back pain, sciatica, spinal decompression, and herniated discs. Chiropractors offer natural health and wellness services for people of all ages, including those who have sustained an injury in an accident at work, while playing sports, or in a car accident.

Staten Island Chiropractic Treatment

Depending on your diagnosis, techniques may include light force or full spine techniques, lumbar distraction, activator, roller table, or sacro-occipital technique.

After diagnosis, Dr. DiMaggio will use the Chiropractic techniques that are most appropriate for your condition.

  • Cox Technique – a gentle adjusting procedure that works with the body’s natural design to aid it in healing properly
  • Sacro-Occipital Technique – a technique for normalizing the relationship between the foundation of the spine (sacrum) and the top of the spine (occiput or base of the head)
  • Activator Method – an activator is a small handheld, spring-loaded instrument that delivers low-force, high-speed chiropractic adjustments to the spine
  • Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic – corrects any instability that may be found in the atlanto-occipital joint
  • Gonstead Technique – analysis of your spine using five criteria to detect the presence of the vertebral subluxation complex
  • Diversified Technique – diversified technique primarily uses the practitioner’s hands to make the spinal correction. An audible snap or pop may be heard when the correction is made.
  • Pediatric chiropractic techniques – gentler treatment techniques are used for children and for pregnant women.

Digital X-Ray

Dr. DiMaggio uses digital radiography (DR or DX), which uses film-free X-ray image technology to record an X-ray image as a digital file that can be used for diagnosis and then saved as part of your medical record.
