Conveniently located in Cheektowaga on Union Road, our facility has provided a natural solution to pain relief and better health since 2017.
There are precious few medical breakthroughs so amazing that they very literally change the established course of an entire field of medicine. But just as LASIK surgery revolutionized vision care there are now a number of new technologies that are revolutionizing how doctors treat pain. Until recently those suffering from back, neck or extremity pain were severely limited in their treatment options. Physical therapy requires many months and even years of difficult exercises and does not work for many patients. Pain pills and injections only mask the symptoms and provide temporary relief with damaging side effects. Of course there is surgery, but did you know that the International Orthopedics published that 53% of all lumbar back surgeries fail to produce relief of symptoms?
Our strategy is to provide you with the most comprehensive treatment program possible by integrating advanced holistic medicine with the latest technologies. This provides you with the highest chance of reaching your health goals.

He spent a year shadowing radiologists at Western New York MRI learning to recognize a wide array of musculoskeletal issues from degeneration to inflammatory and cancerous states. He honed his skills and learned the importance of incorporating a total package of care for his patients. He began his clinical work, at D’Youville’s on campus clinic, treating the general population of over 3500 individuals. Through care, understanding and education he rehabbed his patients and got them back to their daily activities. From there he had the opportunity to study at ECMC Hospital trauma center where he worked with physical therapists to rehab acute patients, shadowed medical doctors and also managed complex cases with patients from a wide array of chronic to more serious disease states. He managed patients at U.B. Neuro and DENT Neurologic where he learned to manage severely acute disc patients, and patients who had been through major trauma, including motor vehicle accidents and spinal surgery.
During the final strides of his doctorate he sought out externships with several local doctors where he continued to learn clinical skills and began to specialize in patient care on all levels including nutrition, therapeutic laser, spinal decompression, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization and muscle relaxation techniques. New patient’s received thorough examinations with orthopedic and neurologic consultations along with any referrals for blood chemistries or imaging that needed to be ordered and reviewed to provide the best plan for the patient’s needs. He came to understand how pain affects the total mind and body and how it becomes difficult for a person to function when they are in pain.
