Dr. Jamie Blau is a board certified Chiropractor serving the New York community. Dr. Blau evaluates each person's whole body when taking care of her patients. She prides herself on being a good listener and examiner, assisting a person's body in functioning at it's highest potential. Dr. Blau uses a very hands on approach to take care of the human frame as well as other modalities such as nutritional advice and physiotherapy when needed. Trigger point therapy, a form of massage therapy directed at removing dysfunction of muscles, is often utilized to assist the body in correcting itself and to help restore balance to the spinal column, along with the spinal adjustments. The goal is always to bring as much balance back to your body with each visit to Upper Westside Chiropractic, and Dr. Jamie Blau. Dr. Blau wants to help your body achieve a more efficient state of well being.
Dr. Blau was raised on the east coast. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1992, and completed her Chiropractic training in 1997 at Life University in Atlanta, Ga. Dr. Blau practiced in Lower Merion, Pa. before relocating to NYC in 2000, where she began private practice. Dr. Blau has been treating patients in New York City's Upper West Side since then, located in the same building as the famous Fairway Market, and the premiere Steps Dance Studio. She enjoys the uniqueness of a NYC practice - where it's not uncommon to treat world class Ballet dancers, Broadway performers, choreographers, and actors. Therefore, Dr. Blau is well versed in the treatment of dance injuries and understands that dancers must get back to their training. This experience transfers to all of her patients in a positive way in that it's always Dr. Blau's goal to get each person better fast. When you are feeling great, you tell two friends, and out practice grows. Here at Upper Westside Chiropractic, we get you better fast, but we pride ourselves in the time we take with our patients. Whatever time is needed is given. It is not uncommon for us to hear 'I've never been to a Chiropractor who's taken so much time and caring with me. I really appreciate your efforts.' Dr. Blau's attitude is 'Whatever it takes. We will find a way to help you in a way that works for you.'
Dr. Blau uses a 'whole person approach'. This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Blau is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health. At Upper Westside Chiropractic, Dr. Blau treats patients of all ages. She is committed to providing her patients with the most effective Chiropractic care available, using the most gentle methods possible. She looks forward to serving you!
