When Should You Consult A Chiropractor
At Gastaldi Chiropractic?

As a chiropractor, Dr. Gastaldi is trained to diagnose and treat "neuromusculoskeletal" injuries and pain. For the most part - pain, numbness, or tingling anywhere in your body makes you a possible candidate.

Hundreds of patients like you have consulted Dr. Gastaldi for conditions such as:

* acute or chronic
low back pain - including sacroiliac problems
* acute or chronic mid back pain
* acute or chronic
neck pain
* headaches (tension and migraine)
* pain radiating to arms or legs
* acute mechanical injuries
* acute or chronic overuse related pain syndromes

Dr. Gastaldi's focus is on treatment of musculoskeletal conditions that have strong evidence for the effectiveness of chiropractic care. He uses scientifically sound concepts to evaluate the effectiveness of our treatment for each patient to determine whether to continue care, discharge, or refer to another type of doctor.

Dr. Gastaldi's chiropractic technique draws on very mainstream, scientifically valid examination procedures, including standard orthopedic testing, range of motion assessments, and palpation (both dynamic and static).

He uses very broadly-accepted, mainstream manual adjusting techniques and stationary tables. Dr. Gastaldi is willing to incorporate any scientifically valid physiotherapy procedures that chiropractors are licensed to provide if he feels it may cost-effectively hasten your recovery.

Dr. Gastaldi: "I feel an ethical obligation to do everything I can to help you avoid repeat episodes of your problem or to help you have less chronic pain, which is why I place a high priority on exercise, biomechanics, and other educational preventive measures."

How Long Will It Take?

Conditions are as individual as people. Obviously a 15 year old boy with no health problems will recover faster from a low back sprain, than an 80 year old diabetic, with the same injury. Healing times vary and there are many circumstances affecting your rate of recovery. Years of experience helps our doctors to establish a diagnosis and prognosis specifically for you based on your particular situation, compared to our experiences treating similar conditions. Only a professional can make that assessment. Following your comprehensive history and examination, your chiropractor provide you a written protocol before initiating treatment, thus allowing you to be better informed from the very beginning.

"I was referred to [Forest Hills Rehab} by my neurologist, because of a pinched nerve in the lumbar region of my spine. I was experiencing pain, numbness and a burning sensation in my right leg, for which my neurologist only offered me pain medication. I have been coming to physical therapy three days a week for the past nine months and I presently have none of the pain or burning sensation in my leg. The physical therapy I have been receiving involves electrical stimulation and traction stretching of my legs and neck. I have also been using the various pieces of exercise equipment in the gymnasium to stretch and strengthen the muscles in my back and legs. I am 84 years old and living an active life thanks to the therapy which I have received here."
