Chiropractic From a Holistic Perspective

Dr. Fishman utilizes an integrative approach to Chiropractic, whereby he explores the various stresses of life that effect each individual. These may be physical (unbalanced work station), chemical (poor nutrition), or emotional (unsatisfying personal life). By looking at the whole person, he is able to determine the causes of dysfunction and pain, and then recommend an appropriate course of treatment. Dr. Fishman believes that a Chiropractor should be a guide, a healer, a trained expert and a master technician who is able to help people understand the relationship between the world through which they move and their state of health; to help restore the balance necessary for health and wellbeing.
