At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of New York, Dr. Gertner performs a very specialized form of upper cervical care called NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association). NUCCA is a painless spinal correction procedure that takes pressure off the nervous system and gently restores the skull, spine and pelvis back to its proper position. This takes pressure off the nerves and allows the body to return to its natural, healthy state. He is one of only 200 doctors worldwide that perform this advanced spinal correction. Dr. Gertner is able to provide long-lasting relief for some of the most severe and chronic conditions.

What drew you to this profession?

When I was 27, I had three herniated discs and suffered with debilitating pain. After all other medical and alternative therapies failed (including traditional chiropractic), I met a NUCCA chiropractor who in one visit, changed my life. I felt 50 percent relief immediately and 95 percent in two visits. It took me a full year to fully heal and correct the problem permanently. I then worked for the doctor who saved my life for the next two years, learning from the best. I just finished my 20th year in private practice and we’ve helped more than 13,000 patients get well.

How does your work differ from that of others in your profession?

Unlike other chiropractic adjustments, there is no twisting or cracking of the spine. NUCCA is a painless spinal correction procedure.

What should a person expect from working with you?

At UCCNY, we have the most advanced diagnostic equipment to locate the exact source of the problem. We then utilize the most advanced procedures and therapies to fix the problem permanently.

What changes do you have planned for 2023?

We recently added SoftWave therapy. It is an advanced medical device that reduces inflammation and provides immediate relief to even the most severe body pain.
