Dr. Alex M. Eingorn

Since 1987, Dr. Alex Eingorn has been practicing a balance of traditional and state of the art chiropractic techniques to help patients regain and maintain their vitality and better health.  In 1989 he founded one of New York City’s first multi-disciplinary health care centers that became Better Health Chiropractic.  In Dr. Eingorn’s practice, chiropractic care is integrated with acupuncture, traditional yoga, laughter yoga and meditation.  The Better Health Chiropractic facility also houses other professionals who specialize in traditional medicine, osteopathy and podiatry.

Dr. Eingorn treats the person as a whole, addressing the root of their ailments rather than just symptoms of pain.  Many patients come to see Dr. Eingorn with back and neck pain.  Pain, however, especially in the spine, is not always the result of a particular ailment or injury but is often the manifestation of deeper issues that the patient may be dealing with.  Dr. Eingorn is skilled at identifying and treating these issues.

Dr Eingorn speaks multiple languages, practices yoga and martial arts.  Over the years, he has demonstrated his commitment to chiropractic and the health of New Yorkers by being a member of the NY Chiropractic Council, the Medical Reserve Corps and also by being a first responder on 9/11.  He continues to study medicine and healing methods so that he can provide the most current and relevant course of treatment to each individual.
