Nicholas Rozakis, DC, CFT
Doctor of Chiropractic
Certified Fitness Trainer
A chiropractor with over 25 years experience, Dr. Rozakis has treated and helped thousands using hands-on adjusting techniques that are gentle and effective. During this time he has helped people recover from chronic and acute conditions such as migraines, neck and lower back pain, acute sprains and strains, neuritis, TMJ syndrome, asthma, sciatica and disc problems to name a few.
Several years ago Dr. Rozakis realized the results obtained by his patients were lasting but only as long as those results were " maintained" before their next visit. He attributed this deficit to improper physical postures, sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits and high stress levels. The patients who were healthiest were the ones who exercised regularly and also practiced sound nutritional guidelines, maintained good physical postures and showed ability to control their stress level.
Utilizing methods set forth by the International Sports Sciences Association and NY Strength, Dr. Rozakis developed the 'Everlasting Fitness' program of fitness conditioning. This program has resulted in improved biomechanics and noticeable overwhelming health benefits for our patients. The side effects associated with the program are usually a renewed vitality, restoration of energy, clarity of mind, increased strength, increased agility and an overall feeling of well-being.
Dr. Rozakis received his chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College and fitness certification from the International Sports and Sciences Association. The methodical implementation of fitness conditioning guided by expert chiropractic skill has greatly enhanced the results obtained with his patients.
Dr. Nick is also a professional musician and vocalist. He specializes in the postural mechanics of the artist to treat and help prevent chronic injuries associated with repetition imbalances and to enhance levels of performance.
