I have been a patient of Dr. Nussbaum's for almost a year, and he has helped me improve my quality of life greatly!
I struggle with chronic pain from traumatic arthritis and fibromyalgia, and have been under the care of world-class specialists at NYU Medical Center. I knew that traditional medicine was only one approach, so I began looking for quality complementary practitioners to be part of my care plan.
From the beginning, Dr. Nussbaum's took the time to listen, assess my various conditions, medications and lifestyle, and explained how chiropractic care may be helpful in managing my pain. He was professional, knowledgable, and very honest about my prognosis, but impressed me even more was his compassion and kindness during that first appointment.
Each visit he would evaluate my pain (which can fluctuate wildly from day to day) and use different techniques to best treat how I was feeling on that day. Other chiropractors that I had been to in the past would adjust you in a standard method, never getting your input on how you felt. With fibromyalgia, there are days where your whole body feels bruised, so an adjustment could feel painful. But Dr. Nussbaum would adapt the treatment to how I was feeling - truly personalized care! I was used to customized healthcare at NYU, but had not had that experience elsewhere before.
Through treatment, Dr. Nussbaum would advise me on ways to improve my conditions on my own and supported my efforts to improve my wellness. With chronic pain, you never "get back" to your normal self - it's a new "normal" and you have to take it one day at a time. I have felt a reduction in break-through pain, increased my mobility and continue to get relief with each adjustment.
The office is a friendly, laid back environment. They are very flexible and understanding if you need to change your appointment time or reschedule and will be sure to have you come in that day if you call and are in pain.
I highly recommend Dr. Nussbaum for his outstanding care and his dedication to treating and relieving pain. He's a world-class practitioner, NYU worthy!
He has had a positive impact on my wellbeing, and I'm so thankful to be under his care!
