About Dr. Affatato

Dr. Affatato graduated from the State University of New York in 1994 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.

Lastly, he believes that health is a life-long collaboration between a patient and their doctor.

Frequently Asked Patient Questions

Chiropractors treat various types of pain, primarily related to the musculoskeletal system, including:

  1. Back pain
  2. Neck pain
  3. Headaches
  4. Joint pain
  5. Sciatica
  6. Whiplash injuries
  7. Scoliosis-related discomfort
  8. Disc issues

A chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is a manual technique where a chiropractor applies a controlled force to a spinal joint. The goal is to improve spinal function, reduce nerve irritability, and restore range of motion in the joint.

Most chiropractic adjustments are not painful. Patients often feel immediate relief following an adjustment. However, some may experience temporary discomfort, soreness, or aching, similar to what one feels after exercise. The discomfort typically fades within 24 hours.

Not always. While many patients experience relief from back pain after chiropractic adjustments, the outcome varies depending on the individual and the underlying cause of the pain. Chiropractic care can be effective in managing and reducing back pain for many individuals, but it might not completely remove or resolve the pain for everyone. It’s also important to consider other contributing factors, such as lifestyle, posture, exercise habits, and overall health.

In most cases, no. In many jurisdictions, chiropractors are primary care providers, meaning you can seek treatment directly without a referral from an M.D. However, some insurance plans might require a referral for coverage purposes, so it’s a good idea to check with your insurance provider if you’re unsure.
