Dr. Adam Stanger

 

     

I am a 1989 Graduate of New York Chiropractic College.  Treatment in my office consists of diversified chiropractic techniques including spinal manipulation, flexion distraction, Nimmo soft tissue technique, gentle stretching and adjunctive therapies such as ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation.  I recommend specific exercises for all patients so that they can help themselves and I stress patient education about chiropractic.  My office has three adjusting rooms with x-ray facilities on premises.
