Serving Long Island City, Queens, Midtown NYC for over 25 years
We are a community-based practice serving patients for more than 25 years. LIC Chiropractic is conveniently located just blocks away from the 7, G, E, M, and R subway lines. If driving, we are between the Queensborough Bridge and the Midtown Tunnel.
Dr. Ippolito always checks the SCM (dizziness), Levator scapula (stiff neck), Sub-occipital (headache), and Scalene (pain radiating down arm) muscles. He also has created his own technique for neck disc compression.
Mid-back pain is often due to thoracic spine immobility and shoulder blade instability. In addition to spinal manipulation, Dr. Ippolito teaches patients how to mobilize the mid-back and stabilize the shoulder blades.
Low-back pain is often compensation due to hip joint immobility. The “usual suspect” for this compensation is the quadratus lumborum (QL) muscle. Dr. Ippolito teaches patients how to mobilize the hips and stretch the QLs.
Although headache could be a serious matter, it is often a combination of myofascial pain and cervical spinal joint dysfunction. Dr. Ippolito will eliminate headaches with spinal manipulation, stretching, and myofascial release.
Spinal disc bulges and herniations should be treated conservatively before considering narcotics and surgery. Dr. Ippolito effectively treats cervical and lumbar disc conditions with manually-assisted dynamic traction and flexion-distraction, respectively.
Dr. Ippolito has a passion for treating and training muscle. Treatment consists of myofascial release and stretching. Training is primarily showing patients and clients (Dr. Ippolito is a Certified Fitness Trainer) his IBANDFit workouts.
Dr. Ippolito incorporates an anti-inflammatory diet and efficient supplementation into his protocols for pain relief and optimal health.
As a Certified Fitness Trainer Dr. Ippolito is an expert at teaching people how to: build muscle, burn fat for fuel, maximize natural growth hormone production, and interrupt chronic inactivity (sitting).
