Dr. Dave has truly improved my quality of life over the last few years. Despite only being in my late 20's at the time, my body had taken a beating due to years of combat sports, weightlifting , military service and work in the construction industry. I was having back problems that were creating discomfort at work and affecting my performance in the gym. I tried various chiropractors previously and none of my problems were fixed. I continued to work through the pain, until I heard a few friends speaking very highly of Dr. Dave, so I figured I would give him a try and it was the best decision I ever made. He proved to be very knowledgable and thorough in both his initial assesment and adjustment . I instantly felt better after the first visit and noticed my improvements in the gym, so I continued to see Dr. Dave on a weekly basis for treatment and continued to see improvements until my back issues were gone. For years since, I've continued to visit the office on a weekly basis because I now swear by the power of PROPER and EFFECTIVE Chiropractic treatments. I've easily noticed improved performance at the gym, increased flexibility, improved immune and digestive health, and better sleep among other things since I've started. Thank you Dr. Dave!
Being involved in high impact sports can have the same strain on the body as an auto collision. Boxing, JuJitsu, and Krav Maga have taken their toll on my body, but thanks to Dr. Dave I have improved range of motion, better flexibility, increased blood flow, and suffer from fewer injuries. The spinal adjustments reduced the irritation of the nerve roots between the vertebrae and therefore shortened my healing time. I found that going to a chiropractor three times a week helped my performance and gave me that extra edge. I was also very impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of this office and Dr. Dave. He paid attention to my concerns and made recommendations for my treatment program. He also made sure I understood everything he was going to do before he did it. I left his office feeling much better and the next day I could feel the difference. I feel so much better.Thank you Dr. Dave for helping me to continue doing what I love!
"A visit to D & A Chiropractic Center is as good as it gets whether you are suffering from a specific injury or for general maintenance of your proper alignment. Dr. Dave provides a thorough explanation of where your pain is coming from and why, as well as how chiropractic can help you to heal, what treatment is required, and how to maintain your positive results through alignment and nutrition. Professional, exceptional service at all times - not a chiro care mill. Each patient/client receives Dr. Dave's undivided attention and personalized service."
"I have had chiropractic treatment on and off for over 30 years so have been to several before meeting Dr. Dave in 2004. I can say without question, he has been the most thoughtful and comprehensive in his approach. It is not a one size fits all approach and you can feel confident in his genuine concern for your well-being. Thanks Dr. Dave!"
"Dr. Dave is a beautiful soul! Several months ago I was laid out on my back and could barely walk. Dr. Dave took one look at me and knew what the issue was. I went for an MRI to confirm and sure enough, my L4, L5, and SI discs were pinching the nerves, prohibiting me from walking on my right leg. Dr. Dave helped me get back on my feet and still lets me know he's concerned about my progress. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of help with back/disc issues. He truly cares about his patients."
"I was a avid runner and dated a Chiropractor but wouldnt let him adjust me due to not being open and knowlegable to it. I overtrained and was in severe pain daily relying on tylenol and muscle relaxers resulting in unwanted knee surgery. Dr. DePalma took the time explaining my condition, treatment and follow up needed to get back to optimal health. He is truly talented and gifted. He loves what he does and knows the body and its chemistry inside and out. I am now living a healthy pain free active life thanks to him."
I have read about the decision of United Healthcare. I use to be a total non believer in Chiropractic care until 2 1/2 years ago.
On August 29, 2003, I had a car accident in NYC whereby I was rear ended and suffered a labral tear in my right shoulder and 6 injured discs (L5,S1,T2,T3,C4,C6), and the nerve was pinched from C6 down my right arm, whereby I would get numbness and even lose grip strength and drop things. I followed every course of venue, physical therapy (which I now believe made me worse off), massage therapy, acupuncture, pain killers, all to no avail.
My back kept getting worse to the point where I was having trouble getting up in the morning and driving. I was told to work out it would strengthen my back, it made it hurt even more.
In May of 2005, I stumbled upon Dr. Perry Nickelston and I figure to give Chiropractic care a shot since nothing else worked. I felt instant relief in my lower back. I started a treatment regimen. The practice Dr. Perry worked for became defunct in February 2006. I began to see Dr. David De Palma at Dr. Perry's recommendation. The level of care I received and how much I improved is simply amazing. I visited every week without fail and I contribute my improvement to Dr. DePalma's care. I don't get the numbness in my arm like I use to, I haven't lost grip strength in about a year. M neck while I still have headaches at times is greatly improved. My lower back is also greatly improved, I can get up in the morning and drive without issue.
How do I, a former non believer, make a difference for the profession?
Is there something I may do such as write specific organizations, government agencies?

Dear Dr. Dave,
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to educate me more in my health, wellness and maintenance of my chiropractic care. I have been undertaking your chiropractic services for nearly 10+ years and am very content and grateful for the recovery of my injuries and how the maintenance over the past few years has kept me in a consistent and stable condition.
Just most recently my ankle injury proved to me how your chiropractic approach and knowledge can help to cure almost any injury. I went from not being able to walk the morning after my injury to being able to bear my weight on my ankle after visiting you that day and within a 24 hour period I was able to walk again. It was amazing how with 3 consecutive sessions your treatment helped me to have a fast recovery!
It’s great to know that there is someone out there that takes great pride in their work and is passionate in making a difference through their work by healing others. I will certainly continue to recommend your services to anyone in need of promoting a healthier and balanced life.
Thanks again for your “healing power” and continued help to keep me balanced!

My name is Geoff Turner, and I first started receiving chiropractic care in July, 2008 from Dr. DePalma because his business office was located about 5 feet from mine in Rochelle Park, NJ.
I hadn't been to a chiropractor in about 20 years, and although I figured I needed to start receiving care again, I, like so many others, was skeptical about chiropractors and their "reputations". Needless to say, I am writing this testimony because thanks to Dr. Dave, I am not only a believer in chiropractic care, I am desperately trying to get my friends and neighbors to start seeing him on regular basis.
One of the many great qualities of Dr. Dave is that first and foremost, he cares about his patients and their health. What really sets him apart (besides his clinical expertise), however, is his desire to teach his patients about their nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems, the individual procedures he uses (and why he uses them), and why they need chiropractic care to maintain proper spinal and immune system health. He explains that when your spine is in alignment, and your nervous system is allowed to function as it is meant to, you have a much better chance of reducing the painful effects of physical ailments, or preventing them from occurring in the first place. Dr. Dave explains that while conventional medication and treatment may, at some point, be required, a holistic approach to spinal health can, in many cases, prevent conventional treatment from becoming a necessity.
After I had been receiving about a month's worth of treatment, my 3-year-old daughter became ill with a cold. As usually happens in my house, she gets sick first, then my wife gets it, then it usually finishes its course by infecting me. When I didn't get sick, I found myself remembering Dr. Dave's comments that proper spinal alignment maximizes your immune system's ability to fight off infection. I fully believe that is the case.
I would highly recommend anyone, whether you think you need treatment or not, to get a free spinal consultation with Dr. DePalma. I couldn't be happier that my entire family (including my 3-year-old daughter) are patients of his.
