Initial Week at Union Square Spinal Care

Your first visit will take forty minutes to an hour. After entering your basic information, some history, and main concern: I will go over it with you, and discuss how my care might help. Then after taking postural photographs, I will do a chiropractic examination, and go right to work. I love to explain the work as I work, and observe how you are re responding to responding to each procedure. When I think I’m done, I take an after picture, making sure there is a change in the right direction.
Usually I will take a couple of more minutest to start on the education of how best to sleep, stand, and sit. These issues make a huge difference in how well you hold these corrective adjustments.
You are paying for the first visit, but, the rest of the week is free. Usually you will be seen two more times. I’m still checking to see how you are responding to the work, Answering questions, and continuing the education of self care.
At the end of this week, I will make my recommendations for further care, if needed, and a treatment plan you can live with.

Yet, Another Happy Client!

Dr. Lenny is the BEST!!!!!!!!!! I have been to many chiropractors in my life, and Dr. Lenny is incredible.

You see RESULTS from your first appointment. He actually takes a photo -before and after- on your first visit. His technique is the gentlest and yet most effective I have ever experienced. It seems odd, as he manipulates muscles and incorporates muscle testing, etc, but nonetheless, it works.

Also, there are no rules like “you must complete 20 visits until we consider showing you the exercises to do to correct your condition” or any other money making schemes that I have encountered at least in my time… He is honest, and knows his stuff. He has a fantastic, caring bedside manner as well and will take as long as he needs with you.

I travel alot for work and last weekend I was in AWFUL pain in my neck. Dr. Lenny got me right in, and i was so grateful. I figured he would be able to at least lessen the pain. However, the next day, it was totally cured! I couldnt believe it! i could turn my head without pain, nod, and the dull aching pain was gone!!!! nothing short of miraculous. truly.

Thank you Dr. Lenny!!!!

Another Happy Client Story

bio-pic-paraco2“Lenny is the classic example of what a care giver should be, Human First Doctor Second. 

Amongst other complications my nine year old daughter was walking around with her head on her right shoulder. Lenny’s first analysis was this will take a lot of work and time to get back to normal. 
Realizing the severity of the situation Lenny despite having scheduled time off for his own medical situation called me and offered to treat my child who was in severe pain. 
Needless to say Lenny’s first analysis was completely wrong, his deep concern and his care giving ability resulted in a solution with five visits.
Now we have a happy bouncing playful child again,thanks to a deeply committed care giver.”

Flu Shot Worthless?

Late last year HFA published a study from the Mayo Clinic showing how flu shots in children actually increased the likelihood of hospitalization. Now a new study is stating that flu shots in the elderly mostly likely have no health benefits at all.

There is no evidence to support the contention that the influenza vaccine administered to the over 65s is of any more use than opening the windows and washing hands, a new study from the Cochrane Collaboration claims.

“Our analysis is compiled using millions of data from 40 seasons worldwide. What we have seen is that the influenza vaccine can at best have a very small effect,” said Thomas Jefferson, one of the authors of the report.

A Secretary’s Diary On The Job

Hi. My name is Mela and I have been working in Dr. Lenny’s office on Thursdays for about two months now. I have really enjoyed my job, I get to meet interesting people, schedule appointments, take phone calls and call insurance companies. Most of the time the insurance companies are up to something shady, or something unbeknownst to me that I have to figure out during the course of a 20 to 30 minute conversation that could have taken five to ten if they didn’t all have their heads you know where.

I have gotten to know most of the regular patients amicably, at least I would like to think so, I don’t know if I have met them all, but I used to come in on Tuesdays so that may be so. All of the patients love Dr. Lenny very much and it makes me smile to see them so satisfied. This Doctor’s office is in no way like some of the other ones that I have been to in my short lifetime where after you pay the bill you never feel good about it.

Today was an adventure getting to the office; the building is doing some heavy duty maintenance in the lobby so I had to take the freight elevator up. It took FOREVER because the freight elevator does not like to close its doors in a timely fashion and then it went down to the basement, and up to the lobby, then down to the basement again, then it stopped at the second floor for no apparent reason. Very frustrating. So the elevator was malfunctioning and I got to work about fifteen minutes late. Dr. Lenny didn’t seem too put off by this, in fact he even offered up the freight elevator as an excuse for my tardiness, which I gladly accepted. I think I squashed any residual resentment Dr. Lenny might have for me for showing up late by gifting him with a nice, big, juicy apple that I picked while apple picking a couple of days ago.

The phone has been steadily ringing today which I take as a good sign. See, right after I wrote that sentence the phone rang, and now the door bells are ringing to indicate that a patient is here for his or her appointment. The patient that came in is named Austin and I just asked his permission to put his name in this post. He’s an actor, he comes in regularly and reads very big books and wears spiffy blazers.

There is a lot of political banter that goes on in this office, but I don’t think that’s strange for any setting where people gather, people get fired up about things. Politics is a good thing to get fired up about. I think so anyway, because I think it makes one’s heart rate go up, therefore it could be considered part of one’s daily exercise.

Speaking of exercise, I started working out with a personal trainer friend of mine recently and I just finished my fifth session. I am very happy to also be a patient of Dr. Lenny because having him adjust me allows me to be more aligned in my workouts. That makes me very happy. It really does make a huge difference. I am able to get a better workout and my body has a faster recovery time, as well as the fact that my hips do not make funny noises anymore. Which is a really good thing, considering during my initial consultation, Dr. Lenny told me that my hip was tipped. So I think that the no more funny noises thing is a sign that my hips are aligning. And that puts a huge smile on my face.
