I had fallen down the stairs, and hurt my foot, knee, hip, back and hit my head, and was limping coming into his office. Other Chiropractors I had seen before do spinal adjustments only. However, Dr. Feldman addresses not only the spine, but does extremity (arm/leg) adjustments and specializes in treating people after a concussion, or a blow to the head. I am grateful he treats the WHOLE BODY and during his weekly 50 min sessions was helping me with ALL my concerns following my fall. Dr. Feldman works in a highly experienced manner with the CRANIAL-SACRAL SYSTEM, which houses our central nervous system. When this is injured it adds to tight, painful muscles, joints, even organs and brain tension, all of which this dedicated doctor helped me rebalance progressively after my fall. This wonderful Chiropractor specializes in the ACTIVATOR METHOD as well, and as a result I was the recipient of pretty fast improvement in my leg and back aches. Luckily, Dr. Feldman, is also highly trained in the FELDENKRAIS METHOD, which works with the functional restoration of body movement patterns that have been distorted by injury, and acute or chronic pain. All of Dr. Feldman's uniquely skilled approaches combined, coupled with decades of continued top level training in his field, lead to a positive update of my nervous system and musculoskeletal system in my ENTIRE BODY. I am grateful for the reversal of my stress state, my aches, my limping, my headaches while regaining not only the ability to straighten my knee and roll off my foot again without joint restriction and pain, but Dr. Feldman helped me successfully re-establish NATURAL MOVEMENT PATTERNS, which feels truly liberating! Looking back, at first I was at a loss and didn't understand how this doctor often first works gently at my feet (although my complaints were located in several other body parts besides my aching foot), then at other areas of my sacrum/pelvis, spine and skull region. But I now don't question his expertise and priority manner in which he works, because he has done so much to help me with his gentle hands and profound insight. As a retired PT, I have come to appreciate Dr. Feldman's professional gifts, acknowledging his many years of dedication. Now I have patience and trust, through my own experience here over weeks of intervention, how these methods stimulated, set in motion my own bodies innate wisdom and capacity for self-healing, increasing absence of symptoms, return of function and freedom to get back enjoying my life! Thank you, Dr. Feldman, you are a treasure!
After working with Dr. Feldman I am once again able to ride 28 miles on my bike at age 77. Thank you Dr. Feldman.
When I came to see Dr. Feldman a year ago, I was having acute pain in my shoulder/neck area. He provided immediate relief and more importantly, worked with me so that my body re-learned how to properly move. This has resulted in faster, more efficient running (I jog 3-4 times a week) with quicker recovery. And on the days where I am on my phone, laptop, tablet looking down for extended periods of time (which triggered my initial issues), my body easily recovers— on its own, so the stiffness and moderate pain disappears quickly either overnight or through movements I have learned with Dr. Feldman. My posture has improved too!
I had been suffering from acid reflux for about 8 to 10 years. I wanted to solve this health problem naturally and kept thinking that tomorrow I will eat the right combination of foods and all will be well. That did not happen. I tried a supplement that was recommended to me by a health food store, but that did not work. I recently visited Dr. Ed Feldman for a nutritional consult and was given supplements and nutritional advice specific to my body and specifically to correct my acid reflux as well. WOW! The first day I already felt better. Within a week I felt FANTASTIC and my acid reflux is gone. I look and feel better than I have in 8 to 10 years. My facial skin, which was constantly red and puffy from inflamed blood vessels (rosacea) and seemed to continually get worse, has cleared up! It seems that the irritation and inflammation that was happening inside my body was showing on my skin. My attitude toward living has changed and I feel youthful again. I did not realize how much this acid reflux was dragging my body down in many different ways. I realize now that I had felt malaise all over due to this condition. I had also gained weight (despite exercising up to two hours per day) and discovered from Dr. Feldman that this is because many of the foods I was eating were not agreeing with me and were causing inflammation in my body. It was easy to modify my diet. I already feel lighter and feel optimistic that I now have the knowledge – and the power – to lose the weight that just would not budge before. I was previously taking many supplements and thought I was doing okay. But I was not taking the correct supplements. The cost of the nutritional advice and supplements from Dr. Feldman will easily pay for itself, as I am now taking fewer supplements but taking the correct ones – the ones that my body specifically needs. I feel so much better that my productivity and happiness has increased. This equates to a better income and a better life. Thank you Dr. Feldman!
Everyone at some point experiences pain and is forced to go to a doctor, then end up waiting hours only to be seen for five minutes and treated with strong pain medication. If this sounds familiar, then you have come to the right place. Most doctors nowadays help patients mask the pain without treating the source of it. Dr. Feldman’s focus is to understand what causes the pain and how to get rid of it. He takes the time to treat each and everyone of his patients, making sure that when you leave his office you are feeling better than when you came in. His understanding and years of experience treating pain make him an expert in knowing what the body needs. Over the months I have been seeing Dr. Feldman, my pain has dramatically decreased and now I am able to work without medication. I feel that I can now enjoy more of life without constantly feeling pain. He treats the body as a whole and focuses on all areas including how nutrition or lack thereof can lead to pain. This became apparent to me once I began changing my diet and noticed how not only did I feel more energized, but may pain subsided. He even helped me with my posture, something I have struggled with almost my entire life. There is still work to be done but I never imagined myself feeling the way I do after being in so much pain a few months ago. Dr. Feldman truly cares about the patient with the end goal of removing the source of the pain.
When I came in for my CranialSacral session, I felt as though my left side was heavy and off balance. I also had the sensation of a pinched nerve in my left buttock. After the session, I felt so relaxed, almost light-headed. I felt that my body was balanced and the pinched nerve sensation had eased up. I will follow up the session with walking and being more mobile, in order to help this treatment “stick."
Dr. Feldman is more than just a chiropractor, in that he delivers a fully integrated body and mind kind of health care. He is a registered cranio-sacral therapist, as well as a certified Feldenkrais practitioner. Not only does he blend these three disciplines to provide proactive health care, but he listens to his patients, in much the way a psychotherapist would. He then tailors each session to your immediate need. All the while he educates you as he explains the workings and benefits of the treatment he has chosen. Dr. Feldman can even assist people with nutritional support after assessing the body's needs through nutritional response testing. By utilizing all of these tools within his toolbox, Dr. Feldman has made himself a leader in what is modern well-being care.
My first visit to Dr Feldman was a happy accident and I began to work with him for nutrition consultation. The unconventional approach of using nutrition response testing makes for an extremely accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan.I had been suffering from several vague and not-so-vague conditions for quite some time and Dr Feldman was able to pinpoint the underlying deficiencies that were leading to these symptoms and recommend organic, whole food based supplements to help correct the deficiencies. That combined with guidance on foods to avoid and limit has allowed me to begin to feel healthy again.Within 2 weeks of treatment with Dr Feldman, I began to notice huge changes in the way I was feeling and even in my appearance. The key to a successful treatment is to follow the program. Remember that every guideline is personally tailored to your own nutritional needs and trust the recommendations are best for your health. If you stick to the program, you can expect great results.
A true healer, simply by virtue of his chosen vocation, is remarkable. One whose unconventional methods are successful is even more so. Dr. Edward Feldman achieves positive changes within the body, however subtle, using a time tested kinesthetic approach to healing. Employing three different modalities, he has elicited in me, changes resulting in increased energy and fluidity of movement. There is a dynamic between body and mind achieved by his integration of Feldenkrais, craniosacral, and chiropractic methods. Following each treatment, I have felt an energy burst, greater productivity, less stress, more stamina, and an overall shift in my mental outlook.
I worked with Dr Feldman in his capacity as chiropractor as well as craniosacral and Feldenkrais practitioner; 30 sessions spread over 6 months. I initially came for help with pain in one of my knees: Dr Feldman resolved this problem in one session by changing the movement pattern in my hips. Almost every subsequent session brought noticeable improvements in my posture, movement patterns, and energy levels. For instance, for decades I used to keep my head slightly bend to one side, and with Dr Feldman’s help this tendency disappeared (and it didn’t return in the several months since we stopped working together). I also habitually twisted my spine so that my right hip was moved back, while my right shoulder jutted forward compensating for the twist. I still do it but to a much smaller extent, and I am now aware when I am doing so, while previously I had no idea I did. In fact, the pattern was so ingrained, it took me months to even notice it. A correlate of these postural and pattern changes is that I now have more energy than I used to have, and I find it noticeably easier to go through stressful events and other changes. For instance, my work requires me to travel across time zones, including to Asia, Australia, and Europe, and, to my surprise, during the trips I took following my work Dr Feldman, I found it much easier to adjust to jet lag than at any point in the past.
