About The Practice
Dr. Franklin Gilbert and Dr. Laura Roos of Central Park West Wellness, located in the Upper West Side neighborhood of New York City, believe in helping patients help themselves. They use classical chiropractic adjustments and the Pettibon System™ to realign your spine and guide you away from pain, and back into an active and healthy life. The Pettibon System uses specially developed equipment and exercises to restore your spine toward its optimal alignment, thereby minimizing nerve and disc pressure.
Dr. Gilbert became a chiropractor after he sustained a series of sports-related and vehicular injuries as a young man. After enduring migraines, neck pain, and weakness in his arms, he discovered a way to become pain-free without surgery or medication: chiropractic care.
“What I loved,” says Dr. Gilbert, “was that it is based on a great respect for the body’s own ability to heal itself, prevent health issues, and function at a very high, often untapped potential… Chiropractic did not put anything into the body, nor did it take anything away.” He was mentored under the renowned chiropractic pioneer Dr. Pasquale Cersoli on Brooklyn before opening Central Park West Wellness in 1979
Dr. Roseberry and Dr. Gilbert work with you to develop a unique postural and spinal corrective, and strengthening care plan, which may include therapeutic massage and exercises alongside classical chiropractic care.
