I almost e-mailed you to say thank you thank you thank you! I have so much more neck mobility - I was in the car and I felt like I was a bobblehead doll.

I want to thank you for your excellent and awesome work. My neck and shoulders haven't felt this loose in almost four years. Your methods are fantastic, your intuition is on point, and both your caring and concern for me as your patient is very, very much appreciated and noticed. I'm so glad that I was referred to you and had the chance to be your client. If I wasn't moving away, I'd still be in your curative hands. I really appreciate your concern for my well being, and caring for my injury, not just from the chiropractic side but also the cognitive side in relation to the issues I sustained from my injury. I will certainly miss being able to receive chiropractic treatment from you as well as miss your good nature as a person.

He keeps me in great shape as I age

More than 15 years ago I developed spinal stenosis quite suddenly and quite severely. I could hardly walk more than a few blocks and standing still was even worse. I tried spinal injections and acupuncture and they gave me relief for awhile -- actually quite awhile -- but they eventually provided little benefit. During the entire time though, I've gone to Dr. Ron Lavine on a regular basis. Using a mixture of chiropractic and other healing techniques Dr. Lavine keeps me pain free and on-the-go at 76.

Getting well, Staying well

When I first met Dr. Lavine last November, I had just suffered two severe muscle spasms in my back. Years of not taking care of myself physically had finally caught up, and I was not only in a lot of pain but also in fear for my future well-being and mobility. A combination of adjustments and neurofascial therapy eased my condition, and at the beginning of our sixth session, my first instinct was to say to myself, "I'm cured." I'm happy to say that Dr. Lavine made me think twice about my commitment to myself--and I scheduled another round of appointments for continuing "renewal" treatments. Now, regularly scheduled neurofascial therapy with Dr. Lavine releases the muscle tension in my back and neck, letting me continue to heal without further injury.

No one could have felt worse than me!

It began with back pain and trouble walking and bending. I went to one of the “top doctors” at one of the “top hospitals.” That only made things worse. The physical therapist he sent me to did me no good at all either. Then one day at work my back went out really severely -- they had to send me home in a taxicab. I was in bed for two weeks. I managed to get over that attack, but it happened again less than a year later. My boss wasn’t sure I would ever come back to work. I was a young man, full of energy and drive. But I was confined to bed. Would I ever get better? What was to become of me? None of the doctors could help me. Would I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair, taking larger and larger doses of Vicodin? My condition seemed hopeless. A friend recommended Dr. Lavine, but I was skeptical. A chiropractor? The idea of seeing a chiropractor was unthinkable. But my pain was so bad and my situation so desperate, I was willing to try the unthinkable. My partner literally had to rent a van and hoist me into it so I could get to Dr. Lavine’s office that first day. Something about him helped me feel comfortable right from the start. I was at the end of my emotional rope, and he helped haul me back. He seemed to understand what I was going through and what he might be able to do to help. I walked out of his office that day under my own power and with a reasonable degree of comfort. He had used his specialty technique with me – NeuroTactile Therapy – and other methods as well. He seemed to have a lot of different ways to help me. Over the next few weeks, his treatment plan worked better and better. I quickly got back to being my old self. Now I only need to come once or twice a year for an occasional tune-up. He’s not just a “mechanic,” he’s a real healer -- of mind and body.

Of all the manipulators I have had in my life, including a Jewish mother, you're the best, Ron.

fibromyalgia, chronic back pain

★★★★★
5 5 1
Dr. Lavine's treatment addresses several conditions that I developed early: fibromyalgia, chronic back pain, knee pain, and foot problems. You'd think I was a walking disaster! But at 61 I lead an active life and manage quite well. I don't need pain medicines and my overall health is better. I can work long days reading, writing, teaching, and making jewelry-- all of which I love."

Huge "bag of tricks"

★★★★★
5 5 1
Ron Lavine has been working on me for over 12 years. He does more than chiropractory -- Ron's helped me define an exercise and stretching routine that keeps my spinal stenosis and arthritis under control; Ron's helped me select vitamins and supplements that prevent bone loss and muscle deterioration; Ron's used related techniques like deep tissue massage to address new aches and pains. Ron has a huge 'bag of tricks' at his disposal that have helped me remain healthy and age gracefully (74 and counting).

Help for IT Band

★★★★★
5 5 1
As a long distance runner, I've had bad IT Band issues over the past several years and Ron has helped me work through and past that injury. I'm back to my normal training routine and see Ron monthly to help with alignment. He also provides great exercises for me to do on my own that focus on strength and stretching.

Knows His Stuff

★★★★★

I have had a bad back for over 30 years, and have seen a number of chiropractors. Ron knows his stuff. Additionally, his website is a wealth of information. I have done back exercises and stretches for years. Reviewing his website and talking with him, I picked up a couple of excellent ideas that I have incorporated into my routine.

an avid fan

★★★★★

As a 77 year old who has a twice weekly fitness class my enthusiasm occasionally results in some lower back issues. The fitness instructor recommended Dr.Lavine. I've been an avid fan ever since. His gentle holistic approach has seen me through a wrist fracture, lower back pain and even the stress of worsening ARMD.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lavine's since 2010

I have been a patient of Dr. Lavine's since 2010. I often have trouble with my lower back, neck and shoulders from spending long hours sitting at a lab bench or microscope. Dr. Lavine has helped me maintain good health and I always look forward to seeing him and getting an adjustment.

Keeping me healthy

★★★★★

It has been 25 years or more that Ron Lavine has been keeping me healthy. I don't hesitate to call on him to help me with any physical problems, most recently with circulation in my hands during the cold months. Over the years he has helped me with low back, hip and shoulder issues as well. I'm now 67 and feel like 35.

Excellent chiropractor whom I have seen since 2007

Excellent chiropractor whom I have seen since 2007. He understand the body holistically and has treated my left shoulder problem successfully. I trust him.

I was a stressed out TV executive

★★★★★
5 5 1
I was a stressed out TV executive in New York , and I started developing lower back and shoulder pain. It was not easy to even stand up. Dr. Lavine intuitively understood the problem at its deepest levels.He made himself readily available, even outside of my scheduled visits when I was in crisis with pain. He was determined to help me recover quickly and to stay in my game. I attribute my physical and psychological healing during that time to his chiropractic care. His gift of healing is so much more than simply hands on manipulations.

Extraordinary Chiropractor

★★★★★
5 5 1
Dr. Lavine is an extraordinary chiropractor. He tailors my treatment every visit based on my specific needs. He only adjusts me when necessary and enables me to keep my back muscles more open and relaxed with his treatments. I am grateful and fortunate to have found him.

Seeing Dr. Lavine for a number of years

★★★★★
5 5 1
I have been seeing Dr. Lavine for a number of years. He is not your ordinary chiropractor. I believe his background as a dancer is key to his remarkable ability to understand not only the mechanics of the body, but also the spiritual element in healing. He is my first call whenever I have an ache or pain, muscle or joint. He is a bit of a miracle worker. Thank you Dr. Lavine!

...recommended him to several friends

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr. Lavine for 13 years. He has seen me through a marathon and five olympic distance triathlons, and more importantly, my life as a primarily sedentary professional. He has consistently proven himself to be a kind, accommodating (budget and schedule!) and holistic practitioner. I have without reservation recommended him to several friends.

whole family

★★★★★

My whole family has been visiting Dr. Lavine's practice for decades now and we think he is a genius. My mother, a dancer and choreographer, swore by him years ago, and, when I was just 8 or 9 years old, she took me to him, hoping he could help calm down my symptoms of Tourette's Syndrome, a neurological disorder with uncontrollable physical and vocal outbursts. The outbursts ("tics") were overwhelming and exhausting. Ron was eager to help. He treated me with Craniosacral therapy, a form of soft touch massage, and my tics immediately calmed down. This help proved invaluable and I began returning to Dr. Lavine periodically throughout my childhood and teen years. I have since seen Dr. Lavine for other issues with alignment, muscle and joint pain due to running and other exercise and I find his treatment incredibly effective. He is patient, intelligent, and humble and applies intuitive approaches to my problems allowing me to live a more fulfilling life.

Dr Lavine is different

★★★★★

I have had neck pain for many years -- probably caused by TMJ. I have been to dozens of health professionals seeking treatment, including physical therapists, physiatrists, acupuncturists, medical teams and and alternative health practioners of all sorts., etc. Any relief was short-lived. Dr. Ron Lavine is different. He has magic, healing hands that find and relieve each source of my pain. I also suffer from leg cramps that wake me at night. Dr. Lavine was just as effective at relieving my leg pain. I always leave Dr. Lavine's office completely relaxed and soothed, He is truly a gem!

highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr. Lavine for more than ten years and I highly recommend him. Dr. Lavine has helped me with various ailments and aches. Upper back pain, lower back pain, neck, wrist, knee carpal tunnel symptoms - he can help with ball of these issues. Other chiropeactors andphysicians that iI have seen do not put as much effort into their work. Dr. Lavine continues to refresh his knowledge and skills. He won't be comfortable until his patient is healing and finally healed. One thing that I appreciate about Dr. Lavine as well, is that he always welcomes a challenge.

Methodical care and insight

★★★★★

I was having intermittent pain in my leg andSr. Lavine traced the problem to an ankle injury that I sustained six years ago. Methodically, Dr. Lavine addressed the problem for a complete healing of the leg. Now I am maintaining month visits for basic alignment issues. I am grateful to Dr.Lavine for the care and insight that I have received.

Ten Star Chiropractor

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr. Lavine's for over ten years. I deal with a great deal of chronic and acute low back pain as well as neck discomfort. Dr. Lavine has helped me by using a variety of physical therapies, alone or in combination, that vary with each visit, according to what my body needs. His unique medical experience and comprehension of kinesthetics allows him to use what is most appropriate. He applies chiropractic adjustments, myofacial release, stretching techniques, neurotactile therapy and body mechanics education to help me. I can not say enough about how much better I feel after each session with Dr. Lavine. He deserves a 10 star rating!

I recommend Ron

★★★★★

I have known Ron for over 20 years. I have had to use his services from time to time because of either back problems, or shoulder and neck issues. Every time, Ron solved my problems through efficient treatments. Deep tissue treatments and soft manipulation worked miracles. I recommend Ron!

Spring in My Step

★★★★★

Every time I'm in NY I make sure to have a few sessions with Ron. I always walk out of the office with a spring in my step!

chiropractor, holistic approach

★★★★★
5 5 1
Dr. Lavine has been treating me on and off for over 18 years. Currently, Ron is helping me with a shoulder problem due to sitting in front of the computer for long hours. After a couple of sessions, I was able to move my arm without pain. The treatment is going to last a few weeks, and I know, from experience, that I will gain back full movement. I am pleased to recommend Dr. Lavine for his in depth treatments and holistic approach to issues. By: Jacqueline H. July 19, 2014 5 via insiderpages

I started seeing Dr. Lavine two years ago when I started having chronic neck pain. He used chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy to alleviate my psi and restore a broader range of motion. I no longer wakje go with painful stiff necks. Dr. Lavine has also shown me exercises that I can do to continue to regain my strength. I would recommend Dr. Lavine to anyone.
