When you’ve been to multiple chiropractors, acupuncturists, and physical therapists throughout your life to address lower back pain and nothing has worked, you start to just accept that back pain will be a constant in your life.

I am eternally grateful for all Dr. Mike has done for me. He first treated my shoulder. I was not able to lift my arms above my head or sleep comfortably. In just one visit, I saw tremendous results. In 3 visits, I had no shoulder pain and was on my way.

Many years ago I was in severe car accident and motorcycle accident. I’ve tried every therapy possible from chiropractors to physical therapy to anti-inflammatory drugs. At some point when nothing works ,you just go on in life with what you have which for me was constant pain.

Professional with friendly atmosphere. I had continuous neck & upper back pain. I've done chiro, masseuses, & cryology but the pain relief was only brief. But with Dr. Mike he treats the underlying cause. Pain be gone!

I had many painful issues they I tried deal with by going to the chiropractor or massage therapist. They would only help for a short while or some times not at all. Dr. Vanchieri was able to focus in on those issues and after a handful of visits I was feeling way better then I had before.

Excited by this new approach offered by Dr.Mike Vanchieri. My initial consultation was top notch. Everyone in the office was friendly and very professional. Dr. Mike is not a car salesman, he’s doesn’t try to impress with false hopes. He was practical, pragmatic, well spoken and empathetic.

What's The Point of Getting Out of Pain?

FAQ

Do you accept my insurance?

Because what we do is so specialized and the patients that we accept to treat are unique, we do not accept any insurance. Insurance compensates doctors based on the average proficiency in any given geographical area. We are excellent at what we do. We also believe that patients are more engaged if they are paying themselves. If seeking out providers based on whether or not they accept your insurance worked, you wouldn’t be here.

What are the prices of visits?

As of 5/1/2023, all prices for our Queens location are as follows: $50 for a consultation and $225 for an exam. We offer packages of 6 visits for $600 and 10 visits for $950. Because packages ensure compliance and compliance ensures results, we do not offer single visit payment options.

All prices for our Manhattan location (City Shockwave) are as follows: $50 for a consultation and $275 for an exam. We offer packages of 6 visits for $800 and 10 visits for $1250. Because packages ensure compliance and compliance ensures results, we do not offer single visit payment options.

How many visits will this take?

While it is impossible to give this answer without a thorough examination, the average care plan, per area, is around 10-12 visits. This is half the number of visits of the average chiropractic or physical therapy care plan in the state of New York.

Will my results be permanent?

Yes, although the degree of permanence will be dictated by a variety of factors. These factors include how much you’re continually loading the previously adhered tissue, nutrition, stress management, sleep hygiene, and compliance with your home exercise program. The same things that cause adhesion build up will cause it to come back. Most patients require follow-up, much like you would with a dentist.

How come you don't do adjustments?

We require all of our treatments to have the following criteria: they must be safe, they must be effective, and they must be durable. We find that adjustments only satisfy the first three criteria in that they are safe and they can be effective at reducing pain (if performed in the right location). Adjustments fall short when it comes to durability, often requiring too much consistent follow-up to be sustainable. Our adhesion release satisfies safety, effectiveness, and durability.
