Chiropractic care has been the leading natural healthcare choice as well as the most non-invasive approach to treating chronic spinal pain conditions for over 119 years. The field of chiropractic medicine keeps changing and our clinic specializes in using the best combination of chiropractic and advanced state-of-the-art medical technology for pain management and pain relief.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
The most common therapeutic procedure we perform is known as spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment. The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by applying a controlled force into the joints that have become restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function.
Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, all of which allows your tissues to heal. When spinal adjustments are given to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves of the spine, relief is noticed almost instantly. This relationship between the spine and the nervous system is the main focus of chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic care works by reducing misalignments in your spine and relieving tension or inflammation in the delicate nerves of the spine. This irritation to spinal nerves is the chief cause of spinal pain.
With Chiropractic care, patients not only respond fast to neck and back pain conditions but also to conditions of the entire body as well.
I found Dr Cordima shortly after moving to Boston. I had been suffering from idiopathic chronic headaches for months. Dr Cordima listened to my concerns with sincere sympathy and worked with me over the course of months to treat the origins of the problem. He is the only doctor across any discipline who was able to relieve the pain in my neck and head that had become debilitating (I had seen many). I am so grateful for his holistic approach to treatment and genuine caring nature. The environment is always clean, professional, and the staff is always exceedingly friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend.
A few months ago I had never been to a chiropractor but I knew I had a pain that wasn’t always there. I was extremely nervous as a first timer but Dr. Cordima answered my 100s of questions and gave me context to information I found online. He walked me through every movement and machine, and I always left feeling better. I didn’t think my lower back pain would ever go away, and now I no longer wake up with pain, and I’m even back to rowing again. I am forever grateful for the careful work of Dr. Cordima and his welcoming staff!
If you're in need of a GREAT Chiropractor, this is the place! Dr. Cordima is professional, friendly, and honest....but most of all, he knows what he's doing. He doesn't pull any punches, he lets you know what needs to be done and how you as the patient will need to work with him in order to make the necessary progress. I wasn't looking for promises that couldn't be met, I was looking for honesty and I found it here. When I walked into his office a few months ago, I could hardly walk due to a disk herniation. He worked his magic... and with the addition of home stretches and following his instructions and advise, I'm now as good as new. I highly recommend Cordima Chiropractic Center.
I have had chronic lower back pain for years (herniated disc). I’ve been coming to Dr. Cordima for about 3 months now and I have never felt better. His office staff is wonderful and scheduling is very flexible! He makes great recommendations but I never feel pressured to do anything or buy anything - he just wants me to know all available options. He explains everything and the reasons for all parts of therapy so I feel very well informed and comfortable with all aspects. I highly recommend Dr. Cordima!!!
I have had serious back issues for years and it started limiting my mobility and made my breathing a little tight. I had seen a few chiropractors before but Dr. Cordima was the first to give me an adjustment that made a difference. After just a few appointments my back felt better than it had in at least 2 years. Even better he gave me a realistic plan and outlook on how to improve my condition rather than try to sell me on expensive treatments
I been to 5 different chiropractors within 16 years and by far Dr. Cordima is the best Doctor I have seen. A lot of chiropractors will get you in and get you out but Dr. Cordima is not like that. He takes the time to see what's needed for your adjustment and uses techniques that are very effective. Also, Dr. Cordima invested in top of line machines that I wish I had years ago. His adjustments are very well done, you can tell he has the feel and experience for what he does. I highly recommend Dr. Cordima!!
