Like conventional medicine, chiropractic is based upon scientific principles of diagnosis through testing and empirical observations. Treatment is based upon the practitioner's rigorous training and clinical experience. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, chiropractic attempts to improve the health of the individual in an effort to avoid illness in the first place. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big upsurge in the popularity of chiropractic. People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health.

What truly differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat what are called spinal subluxations. The word 'subluxation' comes from the Latin words meaning 'to dislocate' (luxare) and 'somewhat or slightly' (sub). So the term 'vertebral subluxation' literally means a slight dislocation (misalignment) of the bones in the spine. Although this term was adequate in the 1800s when much was still misunderstood about the human body, today the word 'subluxation' has changed in meaning to capture the complex of neurological, structural, and functional changes that occur when a bone is 'out of place.' For this reason chiropractors usually refer to subluxations of the spine as the "Vertebral Subluxation Complex", or "VSC" for short.

The chiropractic approach to healthcare is holistic, meaning that it addresses your overall health. It recognizes that many lifestyle factors such as exercise, diet, rest, and environment impact your health. For this reason, chiropractors recommend changes in lifestyle' eating, exercise, and sleeping habits in addition to chiropractic care.

Chiropractic is so much more than simply a means of relieving pain. Ultimately, the goal of the chiropractic treatment is to restore the body to its natural state of optimal health. Since the body has a remarkable ability to heal itself and to maintain its own health, the primary focus is simply to remove those things which interfere with the body's normal healing ability.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I endorse Dr. Gabay to be among the best in the medical community. Being a member of the 2010 Olympic bobsled team I received treatment from hundreds of chiropractors over my athletic career. I believe Dr. Gabay is among the best with his unique blending of knowledge and treatment styles. Dr Gabay is the type of doctor that sets his goals to treat the underlying problem, not just treat the symptoms that it creates. His friendly personality and treatment philosophy have inspired me to gear my academics toward the field of chiropractic medicine."

  • "Dr Gabay has helped me more than once, go from extreme pain, to pain free. I first went to him with very bad sciatic pain. I couldn't sit in a chair, any chair. After a few visits, I all of a sudden realized that the pain was gone. I kept going for quite a while until things were really 'straightened out'. I would recommend him to anyone (and have) who needs a chiropractor. When I first went, I had never been to a chiropractor, and of course had heard lots of 'horror stories'. I now know that there really are good chiropractors, who can help relieve pain WITHOUT drugs.... and Dr. David Gabay is one, for sure!"
