I've been to chiropractors all over the country for some consistent problems.  Between "maintenance visits" and vitamins and exercises that exacerbate the problem, I was beginning to think chiropractors really are a bunch of quacks.  I went to Dr. Bodoff with the hope that the combination of chiropractic and physical therapy would do the trick, and I guessed right.   He's great.  He'll adjust you if needed, and show you the exercises you need to strengthen the muscles that prevent the pain from happening again.  So, the nagging pain I've had in my midback  that chiropractic adjustments never quite fixed is gone with exercises I do a couple times a week.  My hip/low back pain is being addressed with exercises, too, and when I went in with neck pain (thinking I'd slept funny) he gave me an exercise and told me I scrunch up my shoulders, likely from computer work.  Now that I'm aware of it, my posture is better, my neck pain is gone, and I can tell that my back is loads stronger.  I'm actually disappointed that his approach is to strengthen you so you don't need to come back, because he's a nice guy with a much more pleasant personality than a lot of chiropractors I've met, and the office time is much more enjoyable than a lot of offices, so it's too bad I don't have to spend more time there.

First to Review
Dr. Bodoff has now helped me tremendously with two different problems. He was able to immediately identify the problem and explain to me what was wrong. He also was able to relieve a lot of the pain quickly there in his office. He gave me exercises that really hit the mark on how to help rectify the problem.  He seemed very knowledgeable and concerned. I have been truly impressed twice now.

Chiropractors I have visited in the past have been intent on getting me to sign up for a lifetime of visits.  Dr. Bodoff finds what's wrong, makes adjustments, and then prescribes exercises and life changes that enable you to help yourself.  The bonus is that he shows a genuine interest in you, and is a decent, caring person.

Finally- a chiropractor who WANTS you to get better, who isn't just trying to get you to come back week after week.  I have been seeing chiropractors on & off for about 15 years- I went to Dr. Bodoff after a recent injury & he gave me a Physical Therapy evaluation, and some strengthening exercises to help me heal myself, as well as doing the cracking & manipulation that I expected.  He asked me not to make a return appointment, but to call & talk to him in several days.  I told him that I had improved a lot, and what I was doing, and he told me that I didn't need to come back in.  :)

Dr Bodoff combines sound science with a great outlook on health. Helped me manage my back pain and taught me the techniques needed to keep myself out of pain and mobile. Would and have recommended to anyone who needs chiropractic help but is skeptical as I was to begin.

I started seeing Dr Bodoff 7 years ago on the recommendation of my family Dr. I have suffered from the worse migraine headaches for 30 years.You know the kind, debilitating, with sensitivity to  light and noise, had nausea. The occurrence was 3 to 5 a week. My family Dr. came to know that one of Dr Bodoff's specialties was the treatment of migraines. Through the treatment by manipulation followed by balance and neck strengthening exercises the frequency of my headaches started to drop drastically. My visits went from once every week, to every other week in 6 months. After that once every other month to now once about every 3 months. Though I still get headaches every now and then they are not the debilitating type I once knew all the time, I can simply take 2 aspirins to get rid of the headache and may be I have had 3 migraines all year and it's December. Personally I know Dr. Dave Bodoff to continually be a student of the human body and of how injuries occur. He continues trying different types of drug free therapies based on strengthening which as he proves them to work gives him more drive to work harder successfully treating his patients. Hard to not think highly of a great Dr. who's goals are to keep improving his skills! Thanks for your treantment Dr. Dave!!!!

 You knew exactly what was going on
Just wanted to send a quick Thank You! My neck is now starting to feel way better.
The thing that really amazed me, is that as soon as I started explaining my problem, you knew exactly what was going on. This may sound a little crazy, but it was as if you knew exactly what I was going to say before I said it.
Anyway, Thanks Again!

Back running and training
Thank you Dr. Bodoff
I am back running and training for the half marathon. Your advice on shoes was right on. I am in a pair of Brooks for stability control and my stride feels great. The functional exercises you prescribed for my gluteals, peroneals and multifidi did the trick very quickly. Thank you for all your time and interest.

How quickly the in office treatment worked
Dr. Dave,
You are the best. It has been two months since we finished care and I have not missed a day of work. I get a twinge from time to time and the McKenzie exercises take it right away. I appreciate the time you spent explaining my condition to me and how quickly the in office treatment worked.

Your treatment worked within a few visits
Dr. Bodoff,
My experience treating with you was unlike anything I ever experienced with other chiros. Your treatment worked within a few visits and you did not try to sell me on long term care or philosophy or maintenance care. You treated me for my problems and then released me with exercises to prevent it from reoccurring.

I am able to do everything I did before I got hurt
Dr. Dave,
Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how I am doing. I can do almost everything I could do before my shoulder injury and your care. The workarounds you gave for those things I could not do are working just fine. I did not believe when we started and you told me I would be able to most of my pre-injury activities but its been four months since we finished and I am able to do everything I did before I got hurt.
