Chiropractic Care

Dr. Charles Ventresca, D.C., LAc.

Chiropractic care is a form of complimentary medicine that emphasizes normal spinal mobility and alignment. Spinal manipulation is used to restore function and alignment to alleviate a variety of conditions from aches and pains to illness and disease. Dr. “Chuck” Ventresca’s extensive knowledge of chiropractic care, Chinese medicine, and dietary and lifestyle recommendations as a pathway towards health has developed and continuously improved over a 30 year career operating his practice on the north shore of Long Island, NY.


We treat people everyday who are sick, in pain, or just searching for better health and balance. The reason they keep coming back is not only because the blend of Chiropractic care, Acupuncture, Massage, Ayurveda and Chinese medicine we employ provides them with relief, but also because we care for each of them. We believe in total, unconditional compassion in life and in practice; and that aids significantly in our approach to creating lasting wellness…

Chiropractic care is one part of an integrated approach to wellness as a way of life. Alongside Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Dietary Consultations, Massage, and Ayurvedic Medicine; Chiropractic care provides a starting point for every patient to get lasting relief from acute and chronic pain.

One of the fundamental understandings of chiropractic medicine is that spinal subluxations (a functional deficit with neurological irritation) are the root cause of many ailments. The chiropractic adjustment restores function and calms the nervous system. Through the years I have found that chiropractic care effectively provides treatment for the following conditions:

  • Back/Neck Pain
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Digestive/Respiratory Imbalances
  • Sports Injuries
  • Poor Circulation
  • Nerve Pain
  • Whiplash
  • & Much More

While the effectiveness of Chiropractic care is broad, it is certainly not the only means by which to treat health conditions without relying on conventional prescription medications and surgery. Dr. Ventresca carefully considers a broad variety of alternative approaches when it comes to the health and well-being of his patients.
