Dr. Barry Goldstein is Chiropractor, Applied Kinesiologist and Clinical Nutritionist (using "whole food" vitamins to treat the body) with over 30 years of experience. Chiropractic is the integration of Eastern and Western Medicines. By helping your body restore good architectural integrity and nerve flow chiropractic allows you to function properly. In my experience, if your condition is truly musculo-skeletal it will respond within four visits and you will know if chiropractic care is actually for you. Initially your body will shut down the alarm (acute pain); this is only the first step. "Healing takes time." This usually takes approximately 6 weeks. Thereafter, I usually encourage patients to integrate monthly chiropractic visits to maintain good health. It is easier to stay well than to get well. "Good health is a road well traveled." Be patient, health is something you do daily to better ones self. If you do not respond to chiropractic care within four visits we must look inwardly to help manage your health. Remember that organs reflect pain outwardly. For instance your heart can cause pain in your left arm, chest, mid back and mid arm. Your stomach organs are three-dimensional and can cause pain in your side and back not only in the front. This is where nutritional evaluations are important.
