Dr. Neel Kumar specializes in providing gentle, safe, and effective chiropractic treatment for a wide variety of conditions. Some of the services offered at Northeast Chiropractic include the following:
At Northeast Chiropractic we offer massage therapy by Licensed Massage Therapists. Massage Therapy perfectly compliments chiropractic care since your muscles are more relaxed and you will be comfortable receiving the chiropractic adjustment.
Manual therapy refers to various techniques used to address joint restrictions and soft tissue dysfunction. It differs from chiropractic adjustments in that the movements are slower and use less force. For patients who aren’t comfortable with classic chiropractic manipulation, manual therapy is a good alternative.
Sometimes referred to as joint mobilization, manual therapy techniques are used to stretch contracted muscles, impart more range of motion to a joint, and re-set disarticulated joints. The techniques can be passive (patient does not engage muscles during the procedure), active (patient is asked to move the treated body part during the procedure), or active-resistant (patient applies a resistive force during the procedure). The techniques are commonly used in various forms by physical therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, and massage therapists.

Some of the physical therapy modalities that may be used prior to the chiropractic adjustments include the following:
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Cold Laser Therapy

When do you know if you need Chiropractic Care?
At Northeast Chiropractic we offer you custom made orthotics by Foot Levelers. Your feet are like the foundation of a building and must be aligned precisely. Unfortunately very few of us have perfect arches in our feet and if you have a dropped arch in one foot this will transmit to a misalignment in your pelvis and cause your spine to become misaligned. Dr. Neel Kumar can exam you to determine if you can benefit from custom orthotics. Some insurances include coverage for custom orthotics and we will be glad to check for you.
