The care I have received from Dr. Gertner has literally forever changed the outcome of my life. When I first entered Dr. Gertner's office, I was suffering from chronic and debilitating neck, shoulder and back pain. Various professionals had diagnosed my pain as depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and/or migraines. I was on about 10 different drugs and, notably, under the care of a different, more mainstream/traditional chiropractor (snap, crackle, pop), a physical therapist, and affording myself weekly massages. I was missing work 2-3 days a week on average and utterly in total despair trying to find a solution. After one week of treatment with Dr. Gertner, my migraines ceased. After a month, I was off ALL of these medications. After two months, I was back to a routine work schedule and loving it. After a year, I was able to handle the strain of a pregnancy, medication-free, and ultimately I had the natural, drug-free birth I had hoped for. Several years later I continue to be under Dr. Gertner's care, but on a maintenance schedule. I am happier and healthier than I have ever been, or ever imagined it was possible for me to be. I now work a rigorous work schedule and care for two young children whenever I am not working... I am go-go-go and feel fantastic. I attribute this life-changing success, 100%, to the care I received at UCCNY. Nothing else worked. This did. And beyond any and all expectations I could have had when I walked through this door. If you want to change your life - to find hope - to heal - to live to your fullest potential, TREAT YOURSELF TO THIS CARE. It will change your life - guaranteed.
I had a lot of joint pain from my job from tingling in my feet to arthritis in my shoulders. It wasn’t stopping me from doing anything, but it becam…
I began seeing Dr. Gertner 6 years ago when my broken ankle meant I had to be on crutches for a month which was causing pain from misalignment. Note only did I experience a great improvement there, but ongoing back pain from childhood began to resolve. I had a number of very jolting accidents as a child, and the pain in my lower back was a resulting chronic condition. I cannot accurately remember the time frame now, but I believe it was by the end of month 6, 7 or 8 of seeing Dr. Gertner that I no longer had pain. Since then I have needed to visit between once a week and once a month (depending on the sports I've been doing and the heavy things I've been foolishly lifting!) to maintain this alignment. And, in all these years, I have been back pain free. It is a blessing. I continue to see Dr. Gertner regularly to help maintain my health and wellbeing. And to minimize arthritis and spinal disc-related issues that can manifest as one ages. It makes sense to me - since I want to be active and healthy for the rest of my life - to invest in cares to maintain my current good health (rather than waiting for a health problem and then try to "fix" it).
After a year long bout with Lyme disease, I was chronically dizzy and nauseated. I found my way to a NUCCA chiropractor when all other causes had been eliminated. Dr. Gertner accommodated me on very short notice and patiently explained how his modality might help. He was cautiously optimistic. And he was correct. The process was a long and gradual one of over a year but I am certain that this correction was what brought me back to functional. Lyme is a horrible illness that attacked me where I had a prior weak spot. To this day I receive regular adjustments from NUCCA practitioners and it really keeps me out of trouble. Dr. Gertner runs a nice practice staffed by people who are very kind and efficient. He is very accessible and clearly enjoys his patients and his line of work. Who wouldn't when what he provides is so helpful?
